I’M JUST CURIOUS: Crazy March holidays

by Debbie Walker

Once again it is “that” time. It’s the first of a new month of Crazy Holidays and I hope you will find them interesting and a bit humorous. And we will begin:

March 1: National Pig Day: The purpose is to honor a domestic livestock that is considered to be one of the most intellectual and important species.

March 2: Dr Seuss Day: It is a favorite week for the little ones in schools and they celebrate this man’s birthday. It looked to me like they all enjoyed it, even I did.

Fun Holiday: Old Stuff Day: Appreciate the beauty of all things old and vintage. (some of us only need to look in the mirror and smile!)

March 5: Learn What Your Name Means Day: Do some research to find out the meanings of your name first and last. Maybe you will find a great story.

March 6: National Oreo Cookie Day: Enjoy! No calories that day!

March 7: National Cereal Day: Cereal is the most popular breakfast food in the U.S.

March 9: National Meatball Day: unofficial is to celebrate those little orbs of meat,

March 11: Napping Day: Celebrate the day after the return of daylight savings time. Gives you a chance to catch up on much needed sleep.

March 14: Steak and BJ Day: It is the male version of Valentine’s Day. I will only tell you to check this one out on your computer because I know this info would never get past Roland, our editor.

March 18: Awkward Moments Day: Celebrate or forget those awkward and embarrassing moments in our lives that may have made us want to hide.

March 19: Let’s Laugh Day: It is suggested that laughter can help people relax and reduce stress. Laughing and being joyful can also have health and social benefits.

March 20: World Storytelling Day: Unofficial holiday celebrates the tradition of oral storytelling and encourages participants to tell and listen to stories from different cultures and in different languages. I love this stuff! Grandparents please appreciate the values of your stories to children (and me!)

March 22: National Goof Off Day: You can enjoy this one without more clarity needed.

March 25: Waffle Day: It’s celebrated in other places around the world. Here in the states we have the National Waffle Day on August 24.

March 28: National Something on a Stick Day: For me that will be the day for me to go to the local flea market and the little red trailer where they make the very best corn dogs ever made!

Weed Appreciation Day: I don’t know why but someone thinks it needs “appreciation” (not one I plan to celebrate!)

March 28: Children’s Picture Book Day: Personally I am hoping a lot of folks celebrate this one every day. It really helps our children.

March 30: National Doctors Day: It is to celebrate physicians for the work they do for their patients and communities.

March 31: National Crayon Day: Celebrate the invention of crayons and the joy of coloring. Have you noticed how many people who are relaxing with some form of coloring? For me I enjoy surrounding myself with bright colors and flowers and fairies!

I am just curious which holidays you choose to observe. I’d love it if you would share with me! Contact me at dwdaffy@yahoo.com. Enjoy your holidays!
