What's your Day of the Year?

mouseDid you know that there is a special Day of the Year dedicated for something or other? Many of them are recognized by UNESCO as International Days. I have discovered that among February's "Days of the Year" are:

World Cancer Day, World Radio Day, World Day of Social Justice, International Mother Language Day, Take you Child to the Library Day, Homemade Soup Day, Lame Duck Day, World Marriage Day, Clean Out Your Computer Day, Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk Day, Innovation Day, World Thinking Day . . . and many, many more.

Some of these of course, such as "Lame Duck Day", may appear very silly but have an underlying important message for all of us to reflect on.

All of this was brought on by a relative of mine reminding me that today is "Love your Pet Day". With him the dog comes first, the garden second, and the wife third. God knows where the rest of us fit in!!  :-)

Love Your Pet Day sounds good to me. I have been thinking heavily about getting a dog or a cat. It's been too long without one. :o

World Thinking Day
Could sure use a lot more of that in the world. :o

My favourite silly days are:
International Talk Like A Pirate Day on September 19th (even though the so-called pirate dialect is an invention of the actor Robert Newton, it's still fun. Yarr!)
World Autism Awareness Day on April 2nd (for obvious reasons)
and National Brownie Day on December 8th (it's officially only on the US calendar of 'days', but it gives me an excuse to bake and distribute brownies to friends and family)
I commented a few days ago about 'international random deed of kindness day'.

Apparently, it's national chip week (as in fish and) in the UK this week.............
Our cats are family - both ours and their own.
It's a long story how Daddy, Mama and their two daughters came to live with us but we all dwell happily together.

My calendar says Saturday is National Margarita Day - I'll drink to that!
Every day is Love Your Pet Day at our house. He comes first becasue he's the little one (yes, we're dorks like that). *g*
Kittypic! What's his name?
That's our "Mubblechen" ("Mubbie" for short) when he was six weeks old. :)
