For all my awareness I just discovered today that I am totally unaware. I mean really - I knew about Breast Cancer Awareness, Black History Month and Get Organized Month. But other than the major holidays - I wasn't really aware that there was too much to celebrate. But I am so excited to find out that everyday there is something to celebrate - and I don't just mean one or two things - a lot ot things!
In fact for TODAY ALONE - July 27, 2007 there are 5 nationally (?) recognized "events":
National Parents Day
Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day
Bugs Bunny Day
National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day
Walk on Stilts Day
As silly as some of them are - taking houseplants for a walk - there really is no lack of things to take note of and that was just one day. If none of those tickle your fancy... grab any of the things to be aware of/ celebrate in this the FOURTH WEEK of the MONTH of JULY:
Equal parent's Week
Don't eat meat Week
I have to honestly tell you I don't even know what that first one means... but then again, I wasn't blessed with children to parent...if I had been, maybe then I'd get it! And still yet - if one of those didn't get you partying here are SOME of the things set aside for the MONTH of JULY. ( I deleted at least half for brevity's sake.)
National Purposeful Parenting Month (this one even I understand)
National Baked Bean Month
National Picnic Month
National Blueberry Month
National Ice Cream Month
Blackberry Month (I don't think they mean the PDA, in light of the next entry)
Cell Phone Courtesy Month
Eye Exam Month
National Hot Dog Month (which came first the eating contest or the designation?)
Psychiatric Disability Awareness Month
Fireworks Safety Month (You think?)
National Hay Month
Red, White, and Blue Month
Wild About Wildlife Month
National Doghouse Repairs Month (do any dogs sleep outside, anymore?)
National Anti Boredom Month (hopefully I helped).
I just thought if you needed something to celebrate or some new " thing" to get you connecting with your audience at a presentation or networking group, you'd be interested to know. For more go to: everythingpreschool.com/holidays. Believe me, I've already checked the Web for my presentation next Wednesday to a real estate office and guess what?
August is "Admit you're Happy Month"!
But seriously, in September I'll be handing out National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month material at the local caravan - it gets me face time - but more importantly RAISES AWARENESS for a little understood gynecological cancer. For more information go to the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition's Web site at ovarian.org.
