August 22nd Be An Angel Day

The idea of being an Angel has appealed to most people at one time or another. To be able to watch over those who you leave behind and still be able to help them in some way. To watch over those in need, those who are suffering, to me Michael Landon. Well, you can’t be an actual an Angel. In fact, according to what a minster told me, humans can not be… ever, ever… an Angel. Beyond that, I was told Angels are a step below man. (I find that really, really hard to believe) But I am not educated in what it takes to become and Angel so I will pass on the information and you can choose to believe it or not.

How to celebrate – Try and help people where you can. Try to be nice and caring. Reach for the stars!

May 5th National Day of Prayer

The first Thursday in May has been a National Day of Prayer since Harry S. Truman proclaimed it in 1952, signing a bill to introduce it Congress. However Congress has honored Prayer since it set assigned time for prayer with each meeting beginning in 1775. Interestingly, Congress requires each President to proclaim a National Day of Prayer each year since 1988. Whether you believe in God or not, you have to admit about the only chance this world has anymore is through prayer.

How to celebrate – Pray everyday, let alone once a year. Think about it, you prove nothing trying to prove there is no God. Honor others beliefs.

March 4th World Day Of Prayer

Isn’t it funny how when all else fails us that we generally turn to prayer. Maybe if we started there we would be far better off in the long run, or the short run. Today is a day that we should all pray, it would be nice if we prayed for world peace and an end of hunger and for things the world needs but more often than not, our own concerns get in the way and if we do pray, it’s for ourselves or those things directly concerning us.Today is always celebrate on the first Friday in March and was created by Mary Ellen Fairchild James of Brooklyn, Ny in 1887.

How to celebrate – Say a prayer today. Form a prayer group. Don’t just pray to ask for something, pry to be thankful as well.

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.
