Sales Tax Holiday?

In Delaware, we couldn't buy beer or wine in groceries, but we had no sales tax at all.

In Virginia, we can buy beer or wine in groceries, but we have about a 5-6% sales tax on goods.

Too bad we can't combine the best of these things from each state!

This weekend we are apparently having a "sales tax holiday."  This is the first time I have ever lived in a state with such a policy.  This specific holiday (1 of 3 throughout the year) specifically removes the taxes from school supplies and clothing, at the time when people are getting ready to go back to school.  I may have to get out tomorrow and pick-up something for Theo to wear the first day of pre-school, just for memories sake. 

I know I shouldn't complain, but the whole idea seems a little silly.
