In the “Firefly” episode “The Train Job”, Captain Mal and crew just happen to find themselves in a pro-Alliance bar on Unification Day. Again. What a crazy random happenstance, right?
This is the day (September 20th, according to most sources) celebrating the defeat of the Browncoats and the unification of the planets under the evil government empire.
So it may not be a day worth “celebrating” exactly, but it’s a good enough reason to cause a ruckus and drown your rebel sorrows in drink. Or in brownies. If you’re at work, brownies might be the better option.
Make any brownies you like (I like these) and then top them with the proud Browncoat flag. (The star goes upside down.) You can print these out, fold them in half, and attach them to a toothpick with some glue or tape. If you have a single strawberry to sit out next to them, even better.
You can’t take the sky from me,
