March 13th Jewel Day

People have always been attracted to bright shiny things, animals too. Jewels are among some of the brightest and shiniest in the world. People have fought over jewels, created countries over jewels, and marked how wealthy their kingdoms were by them. The largest diamond in the world is the Golden Jubilee Diamond at 545.67 carats, compared to the famous Hope Diamond which is 45.52 carats. But diamonds are only one type of jewel, there are rubies, emeralds, topaz, and on and on and on. Jewels are usually great investments too, growing in value or at least keeping their value over time.

How to celebrate – List as many jewels as you can. Figure out which is your favorite jewel. Listen to the singer, Jewel.

May 20th Be A Millionaire Day

It sounds so simple and there are a lot of people these days that actually do reach the level of millionaire. It just takes a lot of hard work, luck, being in the right place at the right time and…well, you know maybe inheriting the money. It got me thinking of the games we play where we think we can become a millionaire. The main games here are Monopoly and Life. The thing is, if you add up all the money and property you can own in either of these games you can’t become a millionaire because there isn’t enough money involved in those games to make that much play money! Being rich is a good thing but what is more important is what you do with your money. Just having it in the bank doesn’t do anyone any good, except maybe the bankers.

How to celebrate – Get a plan on how to become a millionaire. Save your pennies, they do add up. Live your life to be happy, not just rich.
