I came across a few things in my reader this morning…
Do you know what today is?
It is National Grouch Day.
sing along with Oscar here….
Oh, I love trash!
Anything dirty or dingy or dusty
Anything ragged or rotten or rusty
Then I kept reading and it turns out today is also National Latino Aids Awareness Day. NLAAD…got a website and everything.
Now I realize there are only 365 days in a year….well most years…and about 365 million causes and celebrations….plus you gotta save Christmas and Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Days as they were intended. And yes…those of you above our northern boarder and across the pond…you got your own special calendar.
So, I did as I am wont to do and googled it all… turns out the 15th of October is also:
National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day
National White Cane Safety Day
Get To Know Your Customers Day…and
International Credit Union Day
In addition this WEEK is:
National School Lunch Week
National Chestnut Week
Emergency Nurses Week
World Rainforest Week
…to name a few….
not to mention that October is:
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
National Popcorn Popping Month
Wishbones for Pets Month
Positive Attitude Month…and
National Sarcastic Awareness Month
(also a very partial list)
You can view one of the listings here.
I figure there is a cause for celebration or a cause to fight for…for just about everyone today. I’m going to pop corn and sing about trash….how about you?
