November 18th National Princess Day

November 18th National Princess Day

Movies have had a lasting affect on our society. They have made us laugh and cry, fighting mad and fearful, curious and astounded. So why then, shouldn’t they make some of us Princess’ as well! That is just what “The Swan Princess”, released on November 18th, 1994, did for all those would be Princess’. Seldon Young, the producer of “The Swan Princess” believes all little girls, and big girls, deserve to be a Princess at least once in their lives. And so National Princess Day was formed, on the day the movie was released. After all, we once had “Queen For A Day” so why not “Princess For A Day”?

How to celebrate – Treat your daughter, wife or sister as a Princess today. Form her royal court and bow to her every desire today. (It’s only for one day) Realize that when you make your daughter Princess that makes you King (Or Queen) so hey, you get a promotion as well!

May 24th International Tiara Day

Every woman deserves to feel like a queen or princess. Apparently, Tiara Day is associated with Barbara Bellissimo’s Season of Success back in 2005. I guess the symbol of success for a woman is a Tiara 🙂 Never having worn one (being a guy), that I will own up to, I couldn’t say. But if it makes them feel like a success, then it is well worth it.

Even in our culture today, as in the photo and clip above from The Big Bang Theory, the Tiara is a symbol of a woman feeling beautiful. Of course in the comedy it’s sort of a geeky thing, but most geeky things have some ring of truth to them. I actually think a woman in a Tiara does stand out, and not in a bad way. Princess Diana nearly always wore a tiara and it looked classy on her.

However, she really was a Princess.

After 2005 the day faded into oblivion until Lynanne White of American Rose Bridal re-launched the day in 2008.  In her effort to re-establish the day it became clear that perhaps this day was meant to be – it is the birthday of Queen Victoria who nearly always wore a tiara.

However, she really was a Queen.

But what the heck, if it makes a woman feel prettier then I’m all for it. I would however advise her not to wear it during a thunderstorm, when doing gymnastics or pole vaulting.

How to celebrate: Wear your tiara.  If you don’t have one, get one.  Make your husband, or boy friend, bow before you when he enters or leaves a room (but just for today :))
