Happy National Nut Day!!
Why in the world would this be important? I have to admit that I was not aware, earlier, about the magnitude of the holiday that is National Nut Day, today. Why is it important? In the grand scheme of things, does it matter? Who decides which days are holidays, and which days are not? I wanted to know more. But how did I come to this realization to begin with?
My son, who is doing his Virtual Academy work from my office, today, made an interesting comment a few minutes ago. He said to me, "National Throwing Short People Day is Oct. 24...", and eyeballed me. I happen to be short. I took this to be a challenge. I will have to be on my toes on Saturday.
So, my daughter began to look up all these innocuous holidays, like "Bleu Cheese", "Grains of Sand" and the ever popular, "Peking Duck" days. There are, apparently so many days that are out. Like "Big Whopper Liar" Day! I am keenly interested.
All this to day, what day is it for YOU? What makes it special? I say you don't have to have an identified holiday to make each day unique and awesome. I'll end this blog post with the beginning...Happy National Nut Day!
