Events and Celebrations
We give a tip of the hat to NATIONAL SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR APPRECIATION DAY. These are the people who keep the tech systems maintained and operating. In this day and age, without them, most things would probably shut down. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen, for what you do.
Today’s spotlight shines on NATIONAL CHALLENGED CHAMPIONS AND HEROE’S AWARENESS DAY. The abilities of the disabled make them the champions and the people who care for them are the heroes. Go to Challenged Champions and Heroes website to find out more.
TALK IN AN ELEVATOR DAY is designed to bring us all a little bit closer. Striking up a conservation with a stranger is not always the easiest, but start with a smile, ask for the time or compliment them on their appearance. If you don’t come across as a stalker, you might be surprised how easy it is to get people talking.
For those who wish to observe it, NATIONAL LIPSTICK DAY is applied today. Put on your favorite shade or try something bold and new.
I don’t know much about lipstick but I can definitely get on board with NATIONAL CHICKEN WING DAY. Whether you like them sauced, bare, fried or baked – plain, mild, spicy or on fire, grab some napkins and chow down on some wings.
Momma Mia, let Garfield know that it is NATIONAL LASAGNA DAY. It doesn’t take much of this layered pasta to fill you up, so gather your favorite ingredients, throw it in the oven and get ready to feed some hungry mouths.
