So much to celebrate

Oh what fun today is! Are you celebrating today? You should be because today is...

  • Find a Rainbow Day
  • American Circus Day
  • National Chocolate Mousse Day
  • Don't go to Work unless it's fun Day (you may want to remind your boss of this!)
Did you know that April is full of things to celebrate? It's national frog month and straw hat month and daisy flower month and soft pretzel month and stress awareness month and grilled cheese sandwich month. How fun is that?

If you'd like to add a little fun and creativity to your home and life, check out the web sites below for some daily celebrations and holidays. Plan ahead to celebrate in a goofy way with friends, your spouse, your co-workers or your kids. Yesterday I made a chocolatey layered dessert for our Bible Study group. I have some left overs....which is the perfect way to celebrate National Chocolate Mousse Day :)

Everyday is a holiday

Holidays for Everyday

This Day in History: While I think everyday celebrations are wonderful ways to enjoy the day, I think recognizing and celebrating This Day In History is not only fun, but educational as well -- especially for kids. Today the first Pony Express took off in 1860 (want to take a trip to the mailbox, kids?) and Jesse James was shot and killed (kids could dress up but also use this opportunity to talk with them about stealing).

Tomorrow in 1818 congress authorized that the American Flag would have 13 red and white stripes and 20 stars with a blue background. And Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. This could lead to some great discussion about our freedom as well as racism and how God created all of us equal.

Have fun with these celebrations...whenever or however they fit into your life and see if it doesn't give you cause to celebrate. Oh how I wish I had known that yesterday
was National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day!
