Emancipation Day is a holiday in Washington DC to mark the anniversary of the signing of the Compensated Emancipation Act, which President Abraham Lincoln signed on April 16, 1862. It is annually held on April 16.
It seems fitting to mention it here, because the faces of the people of Hawai`i reflect the faces of the people of the planet. Also, because it falls on a Saturday this year, your taxes aren't due until Monday April 18, because the government always gets a realholiday and they moved the holiday part to Friday, April 15, delaying the hammer of the IRS by three days.
No intention to trivialize this important event, but the lovely scents in lotions, washes, salts and massage oils of Lanikai Bath and Body will soothe and emancipate your skin from the winter blues!
