Today is a day to do nothing. National Goof Off Day is a day to have fun and not get caught. You can’t goof off unless you are not doing what you are supposed to be doing. The day was even created as a goof by Monica “Moeller” Dufour from Davison, MI. It’s “dangerous” to goof off, that’s part of the challenge and part of the fun. Some people have made goofing off an art! So enjoy yourself today but make sure no one knows you are enjoying yourself, otherwise you have not officially goofed off!
How to celebrate – Plan how you are going to goof off. Get others to goof off with you. If you work at goofing off then are you truly goofing off?
March 21st Mermaid Day
One of the most beloved creatures of the sea is the mermaid. Originally sailors thought that manatees were mermaids. Ah, I think they needed glasses, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Today we celebrate mermaid day by having parades and parties featuring our favorite sea creature. The most recognized parade is on Coney Island where every mermaid known to man will be represented. I’ll bet the event makes a real splash with all who attend.
How to celebrate – Dress up like a mermaid. Go to Florida and see manatees up close. Visit Coney Island and take part in the big event.
March 20th Snowman Burning Day
Here’s a fun day! It’s time to burn any snowmen that might still be around. Now, it’s nearly impossible to burn a real snowman, so build your own made out of straw, or wood, or anything that will burn. That’s what they do in Germany for the “Rose Sunday Festival”. It is meant to mark the changes of the season, and the end of winter. Is a snowman made out of anything other than snow really a snowman? Well, I guess it’s all in the way you look at it.
How to celebrate – Look for a snowman. Build your own straw man. Break out the hot dogs and marshmallows and throw a snowman burning party.
Created by Campfire USA in 1997, the 3rd Thursday of March, today is the day to honor your incredible kid. Of course what makes your child incredible will differ from what makes another child incredible. Only you can determine that. And we all like to brag about our children and naturally they all excel at something different. I think that sometimes we are disappointed that they do not go after the things that we feel are important or that drive us to excel, but that’s okay, let them find their own place in this world. We can still support them, be proud of them, and they will always be our absolutely incredible kid.
How to celebrate – Look for the good in your children, don’t try to make them a mini you. Realize other people’s children are equally as talented as yours. Take your kid to lunch today.
Ancient history has had many gods and goddesses – gods of war, weather, youth… so many they are hard to remember by name, or what they ruled over. One of the most important though was the goddess of fertility since family was so important for so many reasons. The most popular goddess of all time is probably Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Fertility. Naturally she had to be attractive herself (at least the preferred type of woman for the era). Perhaps some still pray to the goddess though I think it has been proven over the years that she had little to do with anything since she never was real. But even today, if it keeps you positive to believe in her, maybe you will get what you are wishing for.
How to celebrate – Read about all the Greek and Roman gods. Dress up like Aphrodite. Throw a toga party.
March 17th St. Gertrude of Nivelles Day
St. Gertrude is the Patron Saint of the township of Nivelles in the UK and also better known as the Patron Saint of Cats. She never really was made a Saint but we’ll pretend she was one. She protects the traveler, recent dead and the mentally ill. She represents hospitality, primarily for the traveler, but I guess for the dead and mentally ill as well. She is often depicted in drawings and statues as being surrounded by rats.
How to celebrate – Visit Nivelles. Pray to St. Gertrude. Greet everyone visiting you today as though you are St. Gertrude. Adopt a cat.
