REALLY, is that a holiday?
"For Pete's Sake" originated as a substitute for "for Christ's sake," and other similar expressions. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, "for Pete's sake" came into use more than a century ago and prompted similar sayings such as "for the love of Pete" in 1906 and "in the name of Pete" in 1942. The annual "For Pete's Sake Day" was started by a former radio talk show host in Lebanon, Pa., Tom Roy and his wife, Ruth. It's been one of the featured made-up holidays ever since.
In a interview Roy was asked what he was doing to celebrate "For Pete's Sake Day." His answer: "Zero. We only create for others to do with as they wish."
So at Zaca we say "for pete's sake, let's grab a drink."
