MASSAPEQUA PARK - A 7-year-old from Deer Park wants to add a holiday to the calendar.

Vincent Lupo says he is trying to create a holiday called Aunts and Uncles Day.

Lupo says he was inspired to create the holiday by his aunt, Gina Amico.

Lupo is handing out cards, asking Seaford Rep. Peter King to help make the proposed holiday a reality. He also sent a letter to King himself, who in turn asked Lupo for a meeting.
