I had a golf buddy who once played on Christmas Eve (this is in Michigan) and got home to the wife and kids well after dark.  Oddly enough, he was divorced shortly thereafter.

I have swung the club on a few special days, with my wife's "OK".

Since I hunt almost every thanksgiving morning (this year is an exception), I think my wife would be ok with me playing golf instead. Other than the family get-togethers, holidays aren't that big of deal for either of us. 

As you can imagine @bkuehn1952, the weather in NW Michigan is usually the reason I can't golf on Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The weather usually nixes any of the Fall/Winter holidays, but I enjoy these days with family members.  Birthdays and anniversary are night out celebrations so a daytime round is not an issue.

I have ticked all the boxes apart from Christmas day and New years day, and that's only because my course is closed. I don't really understand what thanks giving is, and why the hell wouldn't you play when the super bowl is on. In fact, there's probably time to do 18 holes in one the advertising breaks.

I think I've played all but Christmas Day, and that's only because the weather hasn't worked out. If it was 55 here I'd have played on a Christmas Day.

Maybe I have, though, and just don't remember. Last year I wore short sleeved shirts to play on Christmas Eve.

I did not actually play a round but I hit the range for some practice this morning. A number of courses in my area have shotgun tourneys that went off at 7-730 am. Not sure how well attended they are, I considered it but we need to leave for a family thing at 1130

I couldn't answer as there was no option of "never."  I think at some point it would be reasonable that one day I might play on Super Bowl Sunday & New Year's Eve/Day IF a course was open. I don't see where I'd be given a pass on the others.

Played early this morning. I can give thanks for making my second ever birdie. Short par four. Drive was meh, but in the fairway, 100 yards left. Approach shot to 5 feet. Put it in the hole first putt. Almost followed with a par. I've been sucking but parred 3 holes and one birdie so I am happy.

I've probably played on my wife's birthday, but it was before I met her. ;-)

Amateurs!

Simply schedule her for a "day of beauty" at her favorite spa/salon.

You get double husband points for the gift and the thoughtfulness of actually scheduling it...

...and a free afternoon for yourself!  ;-)

Nope.

And with respect to Thanksgiving:

Even if I'm not preparing the Turkey there are just to many hone-do's to escape. Maybe one of those year's I'll have to incorporate golf as the official venue. Some of the meet-ups here do a golf and dinner thing. That's the only way it's going to happen.

    • In reality, 10 year old irons especially GI irons really aren’t much different then their new counterparts. Realistically you might gain a yard. And your dispersion might be a little tighter. You can upgrade, but it’s Indian not the arrow. I just bought a left handed pitching wedge from Goodwill for a buck... just to mess around with... A good fitting is important and essential don’t get wrong. But when all is said an done, lessons and then a good fitting with improve your game.
    • Hello and welcome to TST. What one may gain from updating clubs can vastly vary. Club head technology has certainly improved with the ability to get the ball in the air and to be a bit more forgiving than older models. The shaft plays a very important role as well, maybe even more important which is why a fitting can be very beneficial. As far as expectations…hard to say. But at the very least you’ll know you’re optimizing one area of your game by having the best irons for you. Cheers.
    • Unless you have undergone swing changes I wouldn't expect any change at all.  The lofts might be stronger which could make you think you've gained distance when you haven't. 10 year old cavity back irons of good quality aren't much different from brand new ones. Your golf doesn't improve when you get new irons unless you were playing something with the wrong shaft or clubs with little or no built-in forgiveness.
    • That’s up to the respective governments to determine. Many countries only require proof of a negative test. 
    • I am sure that it wouldn't be mandated. I don't think one should be allowed to travel internationally without proof of vaccination.
