COFFEE BREAK DAY makes sure you take time to enjoy a cup of Joe. You can never be too busy, to take a few minutes to savor a hot cup of java.
A Tip of the Hat Goes to…
NATIONAL DJ DAY cranks up the amps for these entertainers who keep the vibes flowing and the good times rolling. A good DJ will keep any party on the lively side or keep us accompanied during the day. Today, we thank all of these people who spin the tunes and bring us the music we like.
Awareness Spotlight shines on…
INTERNATIONAL DAY OF ACCEPTANCE wants everyone to know that they matter. This day was started to make sure that people with disabilities are recognized for who they are and what they can accomplish – not what they can’t do. I fully believe that God created every one of us and God doesn’t make mistakes. You have a purpose and every right to be accepted.
Our Aquatic Friends
NATIONAL PENQUIN DAY waddles into our lives as we celebrate these cute marine animals. It is also about making sure these fine-feathered friends are around for a long time. Their habitats are disappearing, and we need to do what we can to give them places to thrive.
TAKE A WALK OUTDOORS encourages us to get off our duffs, go outside, and get some fresh air and exercise. Me included.
