• How Will You Celebrate Your “Barbara Walters Day”?

    Be prepared for some true jubilation


    With all of the various holidays, from Valentine’s Day to Thanksgiving, I’ve often thought to myself: why is it that there’s no “Barbara Walters Day” on the calendar? You know, a special date each year that we can set aside, in order to honor the many contributions of America’s favorite journalist to our society. We can wax poetic about her affair with a married senator. We can think back to the time she dropped the N-word on The View. Perhaps we’ll even have a chuckle to ourselves about Baba Wawa’s special buzzy friend. If we’re lucky, the veteran ABC reporter will even host a special in which she names herself as the “Most Fascinating Person” of the year.

    Well, no matter what your favorite Walters moment may be, now we’ll have a special day to honor her, thanks to the foresight of one New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, who every day proves to be a worthy successor to Michael Bloomberg. If memory serves, Bloomy once unveiled an official proclamation marking “Elf Day,” a day in which to honor Will Ferrell’s Christmas movie of the same name. Take THAT, Giuliani!

    Yep, New York mayors truly do know how to throw a party! Start spreading the news…
