March 11th Key Deer Awareness Day

Did you know there is a type of deer native to the Florida Keys? In fact, the deer is named for those Keys, they are the Key Deer. They are a very small deer which helps them hide but have little defense and were hunted until there were only 50 left in the wild by the early 1940’s.

Curious about where you came from? Maybe you should start a family tree and try and track down who and where your relatives came from. You can have DNA tests done to try and get information but you have to be careful, sometimes the info you pay for isn’t exactly accurate. They say there is a 50% chance someone in your family had blue eyes and there may, or may not, be members of your family that have had red hair. Well duh! Family records are the best way to trace where you come from, you may not find out all you want to know but at least you know what you find is true.

March 10th International Find A Pay Phone Booth Day

Are you feeling a bit nostalgic today? Well, you’re in luck because it’s March 10th, International Find A Pay Phone Booth Day! It’s time to take a trip down memory lane and reminisce about the good old days when finding a pay phone booth was as easy as walking around the corner.

Before the advent of cell phones, pay phone booths were an essential means of communication. People would line up to make calls, and you could hear the sound of coins jingling in the background. It was a time when having a conversation with someone was a special event, and hearing their voice was a rare treat.

But let’s be real, when was the last time you actually saw a pay phone booth? Nowadays, they’re a rarity, and if you’re lucky enough to come across one, it’s likely to be filled with cobwebs and dust. But fear not! Today is the day to go on a mission to find a pay phone booth.

Who knows, you might even find one that still has a functioning pay phone. And if you’re feeling really adventurous, you could even try making a call! Just be sure to carry some coins with you, as it’s unlikely that the phone will accept your credit card or mobile payment.

If you’re feeling extra enthusiastic about this nostalgic holiday, why not buy your own phone booth? It might be a little impractical, but it’ll be worth it just to say that you have one.

So, get out there and start your search for a pay phone booth. You never know what kind of memories and adventures you might uncover along the way. Happy International Find A Pay Phone Booth Day!

March 8th Fill Our Staplers Day

Wow, here’s an exciting day, fill our staplers day. Well to be honest, somebody has to do it so it might as well be you! Life might actually fall apart if no one fills the staplers up. It’s actually a duty of the Dull Men’s Club. The first actual stapler probably came along under King Louis XV back in the 18th century. Can you imagine what would have happened if no one had ever filled the stapler? It would have been a total waste of an invention and something that holds our lives together.

How to celebrate – Fill your stapler. Find your stapler. Buy some staples.

March 8th Be Nasty Day

Here’s your chance to finally get back to normal, Christmas is over… no need to impress anyone, just let your normal self come out. Do all those nasty things you normally do, think all those nasty thoughts you normally think… just be, in general, nasty! Don’t let Scrooge get anything past you! Or, you could be nice and make everyone’s day a little better. Your choice… just be all you can be.

How to celebrate – Play Scrooge. Let your true feelings out. Be miserable.

March 7th National Cereal Day

Cereals were put on the American breakfast table starting somewhere around the mid-1800’s. For the most part they were healthy, being made basically of grains and ingredients good for the body as long lasting fillers and energy producing boosters. Somewhere around 1939 we started adding sugar to most cereals and though they did taste better, they became less and less healthy until we have what we have today, cereal with very little to no nutritional value.

How to celebrate – Have a bowl of cereal. Determine what you favorite cereal is. Look for cereals that are healthy at the grocery store.

March 6th National Oreo Cookie Day

Did you ever think we would have a national holiday celebrating a cookie? Well, we don’t really so don;t worry about it. But if we did, today would be the day. Today, back in 1912 Sam. J. Porcello invented the Oreo cookie for the National Biscuit Company, later called Nabisco. They sold for 25 cents per pound and rapidly became one of the best selling cookies in America (Maybe even the world) The day was created in 2016, obviously on March 6th since it was the day the cookie was invented on and naturally, will always be celebrated with a glass of milk.

How to celebrate – Get some Oreos! Get a glass of milk! Write thank you letters to Same J. Porcello. (Though I doubt he’ll get them)

March 5th Namesake Day

I was named after my two grandfathers. Many of us are named after our grandparents or parents. Sometime our names date back to some ancestor that strongly influenced the family or maybe was famous for some reason, good or bad. My grandmother’s name was Effie Katherine Amelia… needless to say, no one in the family was named after her even though she was a really cool lady… some names like Effie fit a cow better than a human. (No offense to anyone named Effie) When giving your child a namesake name, be careful of what it is… and what it says about you!

How to celebrate – See if you were named after anyone. Research your family to see if there is anyone you should name a child after. Make sure you look at the initials your child will be settled with.
