February 21st Read A Card Day

It seems a little odd that today is read a card day since there is no real holiday associated with it. However, it still can be a good day to read a card. Particularly to re-read a card that you have already received. Or to send one you meant to sent. I mean, how cool would it be to receive a card for no reason at all!?!

Or how about leaving one to a co-worker, of course unsigned. They’ll be wondering all day who gave them the card. Although, in the world today maybe that’s not such a good idea. Sad, you can’t really be nice to anyone anymore.

And Heaven forbid anyone give out Valentine Day Cards anymore. After-all, that means someone may like you… we can’t have that anymore now can we!?!

I think it’s still safe to read a baseball card. It’s pretty cool, it has all kinds of information on the back of the card. Of course it depends on whether they are a pitcher or a position player. And then you have to read all those years where they were getting started (Normally not so good) but then as they rose through the ranks it gets pretty interesting. I always find it a little interesting that when a player can hit safely 3 times out of 10 they are considered a really good hitter and get paid millions of dollars. I couldn’t, but then I am not earning millions of dollars for doing it either.

So if baseball isn’t your sport you can always get football cards, or basketball cards, or… well, if anything is popular you can get a card of someone that plays, acts or is a star of some kind. Wouldn’t it be nice if we had cards like those for the everyday worker. The back of the card could be like hobbies, interests and jail records!

How to celebrate – Enjoy getting a card while you still can. Enjoy giving a card while you still can. Make up cards for people where you work, it should get a few laughs!

February 21st Card Reading Day

Ever hear the quote, “It’s in the cards” ? Well, it’s supposed to be what comes in your future, but the past may have something to do with that too. No one is exactly sure what cards are supposed to be read today though. Is it supposed to be the greeting card? Those cards sent to you on your birthday, anniversary, Christmas, Valentine’s Day? Does anyone even send cards anymore or are we talking ecards here?

Or maybe they are talking about the Tarot cards, that tell the future. Does anyone believe in the Tarot cards? Can something so random as picking a card out of a deck spell out what your future is? Maybe if you draw the same cards over and over again it might prove something, or is that tempting fate?  And who says that what your fate is can even be related into cards. None of us are the exact same person so how can a card spell out someone’s future when it is likely people will draw the same cards as others.

Or could they be talking about the playing card? I remember when playing cards was a fun thing to do. People don’t do that all that much anymore… too many computer choices. But they used to play bridge or hearts or whatever. It led to great conversation and who could resist those chocolate covered raisins!?!

And who are “they” anyway!?! The dealers, the gamblers, the card sharks? Does it really matter who “they” are? Probably not.

How to celebrate – Find some sort of card to read today. Send out a card, ecard or whatever kind of card you want. Start a card collection.
