Events and Celebrations
Let’s welcome the first day of Fall, Autumn, or the AUTUMNAL EQUINOX. Nature is ready to rest after a busy summer and to start preparing for its Winter slumber. We celebrate with the harvest, hayrides, campfires and everything that is pumpkin spice.
NATIONAL ONLINE RECOVERY DAY reminds us that there is help for those suffering from addiction and that it is right at the tips of their fingers. Therapy, support groups and other resources are available through the internet and that can also save time and money.
A tip of the hat goes to AMERICAN BUSINESSWOMEN’S DAY. These hard-working gals go about their day taking care of business – literally. Thank you for your dedication and commitment.
NATIONAL CENTENARIAN’S DAY wishes nothing but another year of blessings and good fortune to those who have been around for a century. About 72,000 people can claim that honor and I betcha that if you ask them – you will get 72,000 different answers on the secret to living a long life.
NATIONAL STATES AND CAPITOLS DAY is brought to us by Dick and Jane Educational Snacks. How well do you know the 50 states and their capitols?
GIRLS NIGHT OUT is for the ladies. Get together with your gal pals and make an evening out of it.
CAR FREE DAY is all about the environment. Little or no use of your vehicle is encouraged on this day.
ELEPHANT APPRECIATION DAY makes us aware that around 100 of these beautiful creatures are killed every day by poachers. That is a waste of precious life and we certainly do appreciate these mammoth wonders.
DEAR DIARY DAY encourages us to write an entry, start journaling and put our thoughts and lives down on paper.
NATIONAL LEGWEAR DAY is mostly for the ladies. Sponsored by Hanes Brands, it’s time to break out your leggings, stockings, sheers and tights. Guys, I guess we can count socks as legwear today.
HOBBIT DAY takes us to the realm of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth to celebrate that little race that likes to garden, make merry, and occasionally, save Middle Earth – see birthdays
ICE CREAM CONE DAY celebrates this eco-friendly holder of creamy goodness. Invented sometime in the early 1800’s and making its world debut at the 1904 World’s Fair, these come in all shapes and sizes. Fill one up with your favorite flavor.
Our dessert of the day celebrates the other chocolate. WHITE CHOCOLATE DAY leaves the cocoa solids behind in the manufacturing process giving it the signature color and name. Indulge yourself with a little of this sweet treat today.
