PPS. What would happen if you play with a stranger in real life? If they claim it's their birthday, would you say "prove it"? Or if they say it's their hometown's major day?
When I play a multi-player game in real life, I try to clear up the contentious points before the game starts.

What is important, with the card Today's Special!, is to choose to play 1, 2 or 3 cards before drawing the 3 cards.
A player can not be sure to make the best choice when he decides to play 3 cards or even 2 cards without knowing the 3 cards he will draw. So I don’t think it’s necessary to ask him to justify his choice, because it would be a disproportionate inquisition to the objective of not giving him a very small advantage.

About the only other option I could see is at the start of the game, the system picks a random number between 1 and 365 for each player. If that number is the current day, it assigns a "birthday status" to that player. It then looks up a table of approved holidays, and assign a status for the rest of the table.

I see no good answer that a computer can implement. Removing the card is also not a good idea, as then BGA would be implementing house rules.
I LOVE that! display it on each player card for all to see!

4 lefts just get you nowhere.

Fun Fact, in some places delivery companies rather use 3 rights instead of 1 left, as they can skip some red lights that way.
