December 27th Make Cutout Snowflakes Day

If you live in the north this may not be a day that appeals to you much because you get snow and what’s the point of making cutout snowflakes? Right? Well, in the south, where snow is rare, we like to see those flakes but don’t normally get to see them. Admittedly, laying a bunch of paper or material out in the yard isn’t real appealing but hey, a snowflake is a snowflake… right? Or maybe you can just put those snowflakes on the windows and pretend it is snowing outside every time you look out.

How to celebrate – Cut out some snowflakes. Make snowflakes and send them to your friends. Save your snowflakes for the summer to cool your house down.

November 17th Homemade Bread Day

There is nothing like the smell of homemade bread baking in a house that turns that house instantly into a home. Bread, a basic part of the diet for thousands of years, has been around since 5,000 to 10,000 BC. I know, that’s not narrowing it down a lot but it’s as close as science can get! There’s white bread, wheat bread, rye bread, nearly any kind of grain can be turned into bread, it just depends on your preferences. Today was probably created by the Homemade Bread Day Committee of Montague, WI though no one seems to know for sure.

How to celebrate – Make some bread today. Make some bread for your neighbors. Visit a bakery.

November 2nd Look For Circles Day

Today we should all look for circles. I haven’t the foggiest reason why but they will appear nearly everywhere. Tires on cars, steering wheels, some street signs, rings, even the circle of life. Circles make up nearly some part of everything we see, and do. In rings it means the never ending circle of love, on streets it means that road you can never get off of and when made into fields of corn it means someone is goofing on us all again! Enjoy your circles and don’t forget to look for them today.

How to celebrate – Count how many circles you see today. Travel in circles on purpose. See how many things you can name that are made in circles.

October 27th Navy Day

Navy Day celebrates…. wait for it…. the Navy! Surprised!?! The U.S. Navy was created o OCT 13th, 1775 because well, they needed it to fight the American Revolution. The day was created by the Navy League in 1922 and put on Theodore Roosevelt’s birthday since he was one of the more aggressive Secretary’s of the Navy. Which of, course, was when the Maine was sunk in Cuba, maybe on purpose, maybe an act of war or maybe an accident. No one will ever know. And Roosevelt did do a lot for the Navy, he built it up to become a world class Navy. Oddly, however, he joined the Army to go fight the war in Cuba.

How to celebrate – Admire the Navy we have today, it is the words best. Read all Roosevelt did for the Navy. Celebrate our Naval personnel and thank them for their service.

August 12th World Elephant Day

For being a 13,000-pound animal, Elephants are pretty graceful. They general eat some 16 hours day to keep their weight mass up. They are called nature’s gardeners as they only eat plants. Its only real enemy is man and we have done a lot of damage in the name of getting ivory. Over half of the world’s population of elephants, both in Africa and Asia have been slaughtered by man. Elephants do have a great memory as well and can live up to 86 years, There have been over some 300 different species Elephants over time some of which have been completely hunted down.

Like the name of the day, today you are supposed to search for a four-leaf clover. You will need that clover though to possibly find one – because Good Luck!
