Events and Celebrations
RAINBOW BRIDGE REMEMBRANCE DAY allows us to pause and think about all of our wonderful pets who are no longer with us. As long as we keep their memories in our hearts, they will never be completely gone.
NATIONAL THOUGHTFUL DAY can make everyone’s day just a little bit better. Pass on your good vibes to others by showing them some kindness and thoughtfulness. This is one investment that, no matter how much you give, you will always get back more in return.
Next, we celebrate a rarely seen fashion accessory with NATIONAL BOW TIE DAY. Today there is no need to feel out of place if you want to sport your favorite bow tie at work, school, a night out or just around the house.
We raise a glass to NATIONAL RED WINE DAY. Pour some of your favorite red vino and enjoy a glass or two. You have your sweets, semi-sweets, dry and sparkling. Your dry reds are the healthiest wines with the lowest sugar content and the highest amounts of antioxidants. The lower the sugar the higher the alcohol content – so it’s like getting more bang for your buck – don’t drink and drive – EVER!
Our dessert of the day is delicious and portable. CHERRY TURNOVER DAY celebrates this sweet pastry that you can eat on the go. You can pick them up at your store, your bakery or even some of the fast-food places.
