Funny Holidays

So after I posted my last post I got to wondering if there was a "national get all of your toys out and make a mess day" - or something of the sort. I haven't found a specific holiday for that occasion, but I did find a website that had a bunch of off-the-wall holidays listed.

Check out this site: BIZARRE AMERICAN HOLIDAYS

Apparently April is . . . . International Guitar Month, Keep America Beautiful Month, National Anxiety Month, National Humor Month, National Welding Month, National Garden Month, and Uh-Huh Month

And just for a laugh I looked to see what my birthday was (June 18th) - It's International Panic Day. I thought that was funny since I've been known to have a bit of anxiety in my life.

So start celebrating darn it!

HeY- i'm National Hamburger Day. I guess that would make sense since it is usually Memorial Day Weekend. Are you sure you aren't National Picnic Day.... I like June because it is Dairy month and ice cream month. Love, Aunt Charlotte

If only you'd been born one day later you would have been born on World Sauntering Day. Not sure what that would have entailed. hehe. I was born on "Beverage Day" but it doesn't specify international, local, world, etc. Love you. Alicia

So I think those holidays are a day off or something. Mine is National Brandied Fruit day, but the next day is Babbling day, which according to my husband is a more appropriate title for my birthday. And my daughter's is Log Cabin day, but the next is Chocolate Pudding day which is definitely more appropriate for her. Hmm. Who came up with these holidays, anyway?

What on earth is a LUMPY RUG ??? Is it a bad toupee on a windy day or an uncomfortable carpet, or a rug that the dog or the kids raced across and crumpled?? And no offense, but why do you need a whole day of it?? Laughing my head off - Charlotte
