Events and Celebrations
We give a tip of our hat and a toast to FATHER-IN-LAW DAY. These gentlemen are there with the advice and the helping hand. I have a great one and am looking forward to enjoying a Guinness with him the next time we get together.
NATIONAL WHISTLEBLOWER DAY exposes the truth. No one relishes this position, but sometimes it has to be done. If people are suffering or put at risk, and you are in a position to help, your inner voice could be telling you to do something about it. The day was founded on the anniversary of 10 sailors reporting their captain for abuses, in 1778, and Congress passing a resolution that encouraged the reporting of misconduct, frauds and misdemeanors.
WORLD DAY AGAINST TRAFFICKING IN PERSONS shouldn’t have to be a thing, but it is, and I can’t believe this still goes on. It does. All over. People are held against their will and forced into prostitution and labor. This includes men, women and children. 1(888) 373-7888 is the National Human Trafficking Hotline. If you suspect this kind of activity, please call this number.
SHARE A HUG DAY encourages us to show our loved ones some affection. Make sure they know how you feel with words and hugs. It’ll do both the hugger and the huggee good.
Our dessert of the day is the best one out there, in my opinion – NATIONAL CHEESECAKE DAY. Grab a slice of heaven, however you prefer it, and enjoy.
