August 1st Campfire Day

There is nothing as enjoyable as a campfire, outside, at night. Well, maybe there are a few more things one might enjoy but the campfire is at least close to the top. If you are camping it allows you to cook a meal, see what is around you and provides warmth, even if it’s a hundred degrees outside. It’s great for making snacks like S’mores, or telling ghost stories, gathering your thoughts or for just chilling out. However, remember, only you can prevent forest fires so when you are done with you fire, put it out… twice, to make sure it’s out.

How to celebrate – Plan on making a campfire tonight. Have a campfire party. Go camping.

April 27th Tell A Story Day

With all that is going on right now telling stories is a must, whether it is telling them professionally or just to get your children to go to bed. Campfire ghost stories have always been a favorite. They can be made up stories or come from books, it doesn’t matter. If you think about it, movies and television shows are nothing but stories made up (Or come from real life experiences). And so, here again, I shamelessly plug my short story, “Why the Evergreen’s Stay Green.” (Available on ebooks at Amazon) Anyway, tell your kids a good story, or adults and let them get their minds off their troubles… Lord knows, we could all use that!

How to celebrate – Tell a story. Write a story. Make up a story that tells your family history.
