Tomorrow is a holiday cool enough to let you know in advance. National Use Your Gift Card Day! Founded on January 18, 2020, the holiday is celebrated on the third Saturday of January and encourages retailers and restaurants to offer discounts and freebies to those who use their gift cards on that day. Did you know that around 3 BILLION dollars worth in gift cards goes unredeemed in America every year?
Welcome to Dress Up Your Pet Day, Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day, and Ratification Day! Today is the day to dress up your pet as a hot pastrami sandwich while... uh... not sure how to work in Ratification Day... Dress up your pet as someone who helped pass the Treaty of Paris and eat a Hot Pastrami Sandwich? I don't know. How would you combine these days?
Today is Kiss A Ginger Day!! So if you are a ginger and don't want to be smooched, be wary. Also, Curried Chicken Day, Marzipan Day, Pharmacist Day, and Shop for Travel Day. I think these days, traveling to the grocery store is as far as I want to go, and I don't think I need to shop for that, though I will shop for curried chicken once I get there!
Happy Arkansas Day! Also Clean off Your Desk Day, Milk Day, and Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friends Day. Seeing as it's currently 5 degrees F here, there is no way I am splashing anyone. And Finally, it is Huma Trafficking Awareness Day. It still happens in places you'd least suspect it. Be aware, be safe, and be alert to suspicious activity. I'm clearly not very good at raising awareness for anything.
Today is Apricot Day! Seems like a strange time of year for Apricot Day. Today is also Static Electricity Day. Balloon Ascension Day, Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, and Vision Board Day! I thought Vision Board Day would have something to do with eye charts, but it's actually putting up your goals in a visual way, like on a bulletin board. What kind of vision board would you make today?
Today is Argyle Day, Bubble Bath Day, English Toffee Day, Winter Skin Relief Day, and JoyGerm Day. Winter Skin Relief is right on time! I had to look up what JoyGerm Day is. It's a day to remind people everywhere that by being kind and positive, they can influence others and pass on the positivity. That sounds like my new favorite day! What can you do to celebrate JoyGerm Day?
Welcome to Bean Day! Also Cuddle Up Day, Shortbread Day, and Technology Day. I think I shall eat a bean burrito and shortbread while cuddling up to my technological devices. Sounds like a good day to me! So how would you combine this group of "National Days?"
Happy Bird Day, Keto Day, Screenwriters Day, and Whipped Cream Day! I'm still not sure what keto is, but whipped cream is awesome! Does anyone here own a bird? Give it some extra millet or whatever they eat for a treat. How about screenwriting? Today is your day!
Happy Missouri Day, Spaghetti Day, Trivia Day, and "Thank God it's Monday" Day! Which of these national recognitions will you be celebrating today? Me, probably Trivia Day. Every day is trivia day for me. And I have to admit, I'm happy it's Monday! Wednesdays are my Mondays.
Welcome to chocolate covered cherry day, drinking straw day, fruit cake toss day! Love a good chocolate cherry any my glass drinking straw, but what is fruitcake toss day? A competition invented in Colorado where you try to toss a 2-pound cake as far as possible! There are even judges to inspect your cake before the toss. Sounds awesome to me, and I'm the only person I know who actually likes fruitcake.
Welcome to the second day of 2021! Today is National Buffet Day, Cream Puff Day, Personal Trainer Awareness Day, and Science Fiction Day! I know there are more than a few of us here who write Sci-Fi, so today is our day! Go Si-Fi nerds! Be sure to help yourself to a buffet of cream puffs then go see a personal trainer after to lose cream puff weight.
Happy New Year's Eve! If you're not doing much today, why not try looking up some ways a country other than your own celebrates the new year and possibly give it a try? In Brazil, everyone wears white to signify good luck and prosperity, while in Columbia they carry around suitcases, and in Denmark, plate smashing is a thing. The Chinese New Year isn't even until February,
Happy Holidays! All the holidays! There's a bunch at this time of year, so when I say happy holidays, I really do hope you have a happy Hanukkah, merry Christmas, enjoyable Boxing Day, happy New Year, I think Kwanzaa is in there, as well, and any other holidays that I am not aware of! I hope everyone has a most enjoyable Holiday Season.
The tallest building in USA is the One World Trade Center at 1,776 feet, 104 floors. It falls sixth on the list of tallest buildings in the world. #1 is Burj Kahlifa in Dubai at 2,717, 163 floors. Then Shanghai Tower, Abraj Al-Bait Clock Tower, Ping An Finance Center, and the Lotte World Tower. And they say Americans always have to have the biggest and best.
If you were to lay out all of an average adult human's blood vessels end to end, they would stretch out to about 100,000 miles. That's long enough to encircle the earth 4 times! Which is cool, I admit, but I want to know who thinks to try to give the earth a blood vessel belt?
Diurnal, Nocturnal, and Crepuscular. What are these words? Definitions for the time of day when animals are awake. A lot of people know Nocturnal = Night, some know Diurnal = Day, but not many know Crepuscular = Twilight. Examples of Crepuscular animals are cats, rabbits, deer, and certain owls.
