I’ve noticed a trend in the deaths of Italian-Americans. They tend to die on significant holidays.
I’ll offer two bits of empirical evidence.
1) My paternal grandmother died on Christmas day of 2005.
2) My father dies on Good Friday of 2015.
Plus in the past I had an in-law die on wedding day or very close to it.
I’m trying to think, what would be a good day for me to kick the old bucket. I get to choose from Memorial Day, 4th of July, Columbus Day, Thanksgiving. I’m thinking Thanksgiving because having a birthday in later November means it sometimes falls on Thanksgiving day. So to die on Thanksgiving day – yeah that’s when I’ll go.
