November 15th Steve Irwin Day

Most of us remember Steve Irwin as that happy go lucky Australian that loved animals. He was also known as the Crocodile Hunter and a Wildlife Warrior. He went places few of us would go and dealt with creatures even fewer of us would try to be friendly with but thing is, you could tell he loved what he did and the people and animals that surrounded him. He also made wearing khaki a popular and cool thing to do! Celebrate Steve Irwin’s life today by remembering what he did accomplish and by helping protect the environment he loved.

How to celebrate – Visit a wildlife refuge. Buy some Khaki clothing. Watch reruns of the Crocodile Hunter.

April 26th Hug An Australian Day

Who hasn’t wanted to live in Australia at some point or another? For some unknown reason people seem to love Australians, maybe it’s the accent, maybe it’s the lure of  the land down under.

Even the animals native to Australia seem to be hug-able, though I am told they can rip you apart if they want to. (But then, so can a cat from any country)

For some reason we think of most Australians as being in pretty good shape. They are believed to be rugged and buff, The dream of every non-Australian. I am sure not all Australians are that way, just all those who are photographed seem to be that way.

And it’s not just the men, the women seem to be in pretty good shape themselves! And who doesn’t want to hug somebody that you can actually get your arms around!?!

And I can tell from personal experience, there is no dog on earth more hug-able than an Australian Shepherd. (Though I am told they are not really from Australia.) We can thank Wellcat.com for today.

How to celebrate – Find an Australian you can hug today. (Though make sure they want you to hug them first.) If you choose an animal, make sure they want to be hugged as well. Pretend like you are an Australian and give out hugs for free.
