I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
A Tip of the Hat Goes to…
Some of our true heroes get a tip of the hat on NATIONAL NURSES DAY. Dedicated, hard-working, caring and having to put up with a lot, we can’t thank them enough or pay them enough for what they do. Their character really shown through during the Pandemic and has reminded us just how invaluable they are. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Celebrate You With…
From Victoria’s Secret, we have NATIONAL BOMBSHELL DAY. They wanted to let every girl and woman know that they are a bombshell. Beautiful on the outside as well as the inside. I couldn’t agree more, except to say that I am married to the prettiest one.
Family and Friends
JOIN HANDS DAY brings everyone together to help each other. The older folks not only have the wisdom to impart but can also lend a helping hand. The younger ones will provide a lot of energy and can make sure everyone is taken care of. Work together in a garden, share knowledge about your particular generation and appreciate each other for who you are.
Wide World of Sports
The pomp, the circumstance, no, it’s not graduation, it’s the KENTUCKY DERBY. Put on your finest duds, pour yourself a mint julip and cheer on your favorite pick. The Run for the Roses has gone on since 1875 and is the first in the triple crown series – to be followed by the Preakness and Belmont Stakes.
Education and Information
NATIONAL FITNESS DAY reminds us how important health is. We all know to eat a little better and move a little more, but I have come to notice the benefits of standing. I have heard that “sitting is the new smoking” and have found that I do feel better after standing longer.
Today’s Barely There Fashion Trends
NAKED GARDENING DAY requires a generous amount of sunscreen. They say there is no faster way to get your neighbors to put up fences than to do your gardening sans clothes. Just be careful with the clippers.
If you celebrated Star Wars Day on the 4th and Cinco De Mayo yesterday, you may not be feeling up to snuff and are suffering from REVENGE OF THE 6TH. Don’t let too many margaritas take you to the dark side – use the force and drink some water. Get some rest and you will be back to battling Sith Lords in no time.
If you’ve been looking for an excuse to read a comic book, today is your lucky day. FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is just that. Many shops and dealers will offer free comics to show appreciation for their faithful customers as well as hoping to draw in new ones. Which comics are your favorites?
NATIONAL SCRAPBOOK DAY invites all of you enthusiasts to cut, paste, design, and put your lives in book form through pictures, memorabilia, and other knick-knacks. I have not sat in on a session, but I am guessing the social aspect is the big draw.
On Today’s Menu…
NATIONAL BEVERAGE DAY doesn’t really have an origin story or many details – so enjoy the beverages of your choice today and make sure and toast this thirst-slaking holiday.
Our dessert of the day will set your heart aflame. NATIONAL CREPE SUZETTE DAY celebrates the dish that was created accidentally. The chef burned the sauce he was using and thought it was ruined. After tasting it, he found the butter, orange juice, caramelized sugar and orange liqueur went quite well with the crepes. Today it is set on fire before it is served and is quite delicious.
