It's February!!

It's February. That wonderful month of love. We celebrate Valentine's day and President's day. And the fact that March and some normal weather is only 28 days away. But according to the Wacky Holiday site, there are many more things to celebrate in February. I have listed some of my favorite here. But you can find out more of them for February and the rest of the year by visiting Holiday Insights.

1. No Politics Day - I just want to go on record as saying I don't discuss politics as a general rule, but no matter how you voted, I'm sure a lot of you are sick of seeing political posts of any kind on your Facebook every day.  So it would be nice if everybody would celebrate this day by not discussing them for 24 hours. Oh, a girl can dream.

3 The Day the Music Died - Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper died in a plane crash in 1959. (Okay, admit it. When you read this one, did you start singing "Bye, bye Miss American pie. Drove my Chevy to the levee till the levee was dry....")

4 Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day - Well, umm, let's see...ummm Yes, I can do this one. Especially since I could eat ice cream any time of any day. This one will not be a problem for me.

6 National Chopsticks Day  - I'll have to pass on this one. I've never conquered that because I don't eat any Asian food. Did you know that in China they are called "Kuaizi", which means "quick little bamboo fellows". How adorable is that.

7 Wave All you Fingers at Your Neighbor Day - Read that carefully. Wave ALL your fingers which I am 100% sure it means at the same time, not one by one. Be very careful with this one.

8 Kite Flying Day - in the middle of winter? But I must say for the past few days we have had so much wind I thought my roof might blow off a time or two. And I actually own 2 or 3 kites and that super duper string. I could go in the field across the road and actually do this one.

9 National Pizza Day - We know I won't have any trouble remembering and celebrating this one.

13 Get a Different Name Day - I gather that this was a day for you to go get your name officially changed if you don't like the one you have. Or maybe it means get married and get a new last name. I just think I will keep all the names I got.

14 National Organ Donor Day - This is not a wacky or crazy one. This is a good day to remember those who somehow lost their lives and donated them so someone else could live. And a great day to remember the recipient of their new organ giving them life. This will be around the time my friend Stephanie will find out if overall health will meet all the criteria to get approved for her double lung transplant application to be completed. Still keep her in your prayers. She's at Vanderbilt all week going through all the necessary testing. Just yesterday, they took 21 vials of blood at one time for 21 different tests. 

15 Singles Awareness Day - This one made me smile. Do you not think that anybody who is single is already aware they are? Why is there a day for awareness about it.

16 Do a Grouch a Favor Day - The favor would probably not to tell said grouch "Hey, did you know I'm supposed to do you a favor today?"

17 Random Acts of Kindness Day - I would like to challenge all of you to something nice for somebody this day.

18 National Battery Day - This one is to celebrate the invention of the battery. Hey, maybe the fancy batteries from my yesterday's post could be used to celebrate National Battery Day.

19 National Chocolate Mint Day - Now this is my favorite one of all. CHOCOLATE MINT DAY. Excuse me, The Royal Reigning Queen of Junior Mints am I so I'm pretty sure I celebrate this on.e Every. Single. Day.

20 Hoodie Hoo Day - This one is just too funny to leave off my list of favorites. I had to look it up to see exactly what a Hoodie-Hoo was (Pronounced WHO-dee). On this winter day, people go out at noon, wave their hands over their heads and chant "Hoodie-Hoo". It is a day to chase away winter blahs, and bring in spring.

23 International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day - I can't even begin to wrap my mind around you would appreciate Dog Biscuits and why you need not a national but an INTERNATIONAL day to appreciate them. Somebody better tell the dogs.

27 No Brainer Day - this day is for me! Oh how wonderful to have a day designated to only do things that are no brainers....things that require no thought at all. Now wouldn't the bosses love that.

28 Public Sleeping Day - I guess they had to make this day so you could get a nap in from all the energy you used for the no-brainer day the day before. Somebody try this one at work today and let me know how it goes for you when the boss wakes you up and you say...sorry It's Public Sleeping Day.
