Happy Friday everyone! Casey here!
In my quest for a blog topic this week, I stumbled upon this website – Holiday Insights.
I kid you not. There is a holiday for everything. Today is National Tell a Story day in the United States.
If you live in Scotland or England you have to wait until October 27th to celebrate. Apparently, no one knows why the holidays are six month apart.
Anyhoo. The gist of the day is to tell a story to someone. No surprise, this is popular with the elementary school/library set.
So, you know I couldn’t stop there. I googled wacky holidays and hit pay dirt (thank you Brownielocks & The 3 Bears).
April 27th is also:
- Babe Ruth Day
- Arbor Day
- National Prime Rib Day
- National Hairball AwarenessDay
- Mantanzas Mule Day
- Morse Code Day
If you like celebrating by the week, Brownielocks also offers up these gems (this is just a sampling):
- National Scoop the Poop Week
- National Severe Storm Preparedness Week
- Week of the Young Child
- Spring Astronmy Week
- National Pie Championships
I swear I’m not making these up!
But you know. . . . I’m a writer. I make things up all the time. So why not make up a few holidays of my own?
If I were to make up my own holiday, I would declare today – Adorable Owl Day!
Or – Leave the Writer Alone Day!
Or perhaps – Gratituous Hunk with No Shirt Day!
I’m pretty sure I could make up something for each day of the week!
How about you? What holidays would you make up? Don’t be shy!
