How do you designate a day as a special calendar day? Like Secretaries Day? (It used to be Secretaries Day, now I think it’s Administrative Assistants Day.) At first thought, I’d give credit to the greeting card companies. But when I looked to see if there are special days to celebrate on the September calendar that we might be missing out on, I’m rethinking that thought.
I don’t recall ever seeing a card wishing someone a Happy National Blueberry Popsicle Day. You may want to put that on your 2011 calendar for September 2. Is there a National Blueberry Popsicle Federation? A coalition? A Popsicle lobbyist? There were the Lollypop Kids . . .
But WAIT! That’s not all! Last Friday was Skyscraper Day and I didn’t even get to watch King Kong. Jeez.
Yesterday was Newspaper Carrier Day. There might be a card for that one, but we’re too late. If you own a Studebaker, you probably participated in some type of a parade since September 4th was also International Drive Your Studebaker Day!
Which brings us to today, September 5.
You will be happy to know that today you can celebrate Be Late for Something Day AND National Cheese Pizza Day however you wish!
Let’s start a special day that really means something, like Mothers Day and Fathers Day. How about celebrating Siblings Day? Everybody else has their day, and I think my sister and my brother should have a special day too. Our siblings help us collect memories. Because of their own uniqueness, they remember things differently. And they remember different things about family and events. Siblings make a family’s remembrances whole. They expand our world with their insights, their opinions, their likes and dislikes, their senses of humor, their life lessons. Besides all that, they’re just plain fun!
So go ahead and be late celebrating with your cheese pizza today. I’ll be celebrating my sis and my bro – today and every day! Luv ya! C
