January 9th Play God Day

None of us should ever play God (well unless you are someone in a theatrical event with names like Evan or Bruce…) The one thing for sure is that we should never be making decisions that should be left up to God, whether we get them right or not, we will eventually pay the price for it. At least consult God, through prayer, hopefully He will give you the answer.

How to celebrate – Follow your belief.

December 25th Christmas Day

Here’s the day a lot of us wait for all year long, we decorate for it, shop for and celebrate it for many, many reasons. In the Christian world, it’s because of Jesus’ birth but we tend to forget that amongst everything else we are involved in. In a way, it’s okay because God would want you to be happy and celebrate his only son. Just… don’t forget about him completely as you go through your day today. Merry Christmas to all!

How to celebrate – Spend the day with your family. Remember what Christmas is for. Celebrate!

August 22nd Be An Angel Day

Today it is suggested that we should all be more like Angels. (Though I am told by the religious community a human cannot be an Angel) I think the real meaning of today is act more like you think an Angel acts than to try and literally be one. We think of most Angels as Women but the are Men too, Michael, Gabriel and so forth. But there is something about an Angel being soft and gentle which reminds us more of women. Today was created by Jayne Howard Feldman in 1993.

How to celebrate – Study all the Angels in God’s toolbox. Try and act like an Angel. Look for Angels in your outfield.

April 2nd Good Friday

It is hard for me to understand how this is “Good Friday” in the Christian world. It is the day that Jesus Christ was nailed to the cross at noon and left human form at 3 PM. The date does vary but the reason for this “Holiday” never does. Good Friday is also known as “Dark Friday”, perhaps a bit more fitting. It should be noted that if records are correct, the day Jesus was placed on the cross started out bright and dry but at 3 PM the sky darkened and became stormy.

How to celebrate – If you are Christian, spend the day in prayer. Celebrate Jesus Christ being raised from the dead on Easter Sunday. Let all celebrate their faith in freedom and choice.

January 9th Play God Day

Now this day can be taken one of two ways. In the bad way, one would play as if everything the did was God like and others should show the respect they show the real God. The good way, is to do things the way you think God would if He (Or She) was here. Helping the sick, feed those that are hungry, giving hope to the hopeless. If you stop and think about it today can either be a really bad day, or a really good day depending on how you accept the challenge… but then, isn’t every day just like that anyway.

How to celebrate – Treat others the way you want to be treated. Before doing anything that affects someone else, ask yourself how God might handle it. Power can be dangerous in the hands of those who don’t know how to use it.

December 25th Christmas Day

In case you woke up this morning brain dead, it’s Christmas Day! The day celebrated by Christians for the birth of Jesus Christ. Of course we really don’t know what day Christ was born but December 25th seems as good as any day. There are so many tradition we celebrate today thought the religious aspect seems to lose compared to the social norms. That’s sort of sad when we forget the reason we are celebrating. Well, enjoy your Christmas, celebrate for whatever reason you choose but remember this is the day the most important human ever was born.

How to celebrate – I don’t think you really need me to tell you how to celebrate your day but try to remember the reason for the season.

August 22nd Be An Angel Day

We hold Angels high among us. They are God’s warriors, or helpers and we each have at least one that watches over us… or at least we hope we do. I have been told people cannot become Angels and Angels can never have been a person. I am not sure I believe that. Maybe it’s true from the literal sense but I have known many people in my life that I could consider being an Angel and I like to think that if I work hard enough at it, maybe I could become one as well. The day was created by Jay Howard Feldman in 1993. I wonder if he knew something the rest of us didn’t. Kindness is like being an Angel and it requires very little effort from us to do so. So earn your wings whether it’s in this life… or the next.

How to celebrate – Honor any Angel you know. Believe in something beyond yourself. Ask your Angel for some help.

March 25th Feast of the Annunciation

Well imagine you are sitting around your house not doing much of anything and an Angel appears next to you. Oh, and not just any Angel but the Archangel Gabriel. Now this is not just a social call, no… he tells you that you are going to be mother to God’s Son, Jesus Christ. Well, since you are a virgin this seems a little unlikely but who are you to argue with an Archangel? So you say “okay” and go on about your day. This is a poor representation of Mary’s day when she found out she would be the mother of God’s child. So today we celebrate that day, though we probably don’t know when the actual date was she got the news.

How to celebrate – Have a feast celebrating the good news! Read about Mary’s life. Celebrate the Joy.

January 9th Play God Day

There are times when we all play God. I don’t think most of us really mean to do it but we do. Like when we drive and look at our cell phones, it is an act of playing God. We are judging that we can be distracted without penalty. It does, however, eventually catch up to us. So often playing like we are God has bad results for others, more than for ourselves, but we will eventually pay for it. And it really doesn’t matter which God you pray to, it’s the same. We feel we answer to someone more knowing than ourselves, at least we hope there is someone more knowing than ourselves. And if you believe you have to trust. Trust that whatever you are playing God with will be better off in God’s hands than our own.

How to celebrate – Thank whatever God you believe in. Do not pass judgement on others. Know that you are not perfect and therefore, able to make mistakes and have bad judgement.

August 22nd National Be An Angel Day

Angels are considered to be among the most honored and cherished creatures that have ever existed, or not existed, according to your beliefs. The day was created by Jayne Howard Feldman on August 22nd, 1993. I think she was on to something. if we all try to be more like Angels we will all be far better off, whether you believe in Angels or not. I personally believe there are Angels, some may even be human.

How to celebrate – List those around you that are Angelic. See how many Angels you can list. Pay it forward today!
