June 23rd National Pink Day

June 23rd National Pink Day

For some reason, not officially recognized, women love the color pink. I am sure it has something to do with being soothing and yet still bright and cheerful. Men generally think a little less of it, I don’t think so much for the actual color but because it shows dirt so easily. Today, whether you are a man or a woman, is the day to wear pink and show your support for the color. It’s halfway between red, a color of deep passion, and white, a color of innocence. I expected to find some great cause for today and was surprised I did not find one. Pink is an anti-bullying color but has it’s own day so I guess today we just celebrate the color pink, why not? We also celebrate Pink Flamingo Day.

How to celebrate – Wear pink. Dye your hair pink. Wash your whites with reds and get an entire new pink wardrobe.

January 8th National Bubble Bath Day

January 8th National Bubble Bath Day

I am not a big bath person. I do not understand the wisdom in sitting in a bathtub when you are dirty and transferring that dirt into the water you then wash yourself with! However, if you take a shower first and then get into a bath it can be relaxing and soothing. And you can make it oh so much better by adding bubble bath to the tub. It is believed that bubble bath was originally thought to keep the water warmer. That may, or may not, prove to be the case. It served the early movie industry well to imply that someone was nude the tub of water when they were actually dressed but the clothing was covered up by the bubble bath. Which generates the idea that maybe you can take a bath and wash your clothes at the same time if you use bubble bath!

How to celebrate – Get some bubble bath! Don’t forget your rubber ducky! Invent a shower bubble bath solution.

January 6th Cuddle Up Day

There is nothing better than starting your day with cuddling, unless perhaps its ending your day with cuddling. We all need contact with our species, whether we are human or animal, it re-enforces our emotions and helps us to relax. Well, most of the time. If you happen to be cuddling with your arm supporting someone it can be a little uncomfortable if they fall asleep. That said, with the weather in most places being colder it’s nice to fee the warmth of another beside us. Even animals spend a good deal of time cuddling, or in need of a cuddle. It’s human nature to want that contact and animal instinct to want to find it.

How to celebrate – Find someone to cuddle with. Give out hugs for free. Cuddle with your pet to let them know you care.

June 10th National Ice Tea Day

June 10th is National Ice Tea Day, and as a bonus, June is National Iced Tea Month!  tea has been served as a beverage for almost as long as man has been drinking anything at all! Next to water, it is also probably the world’s first health drink. It helps one to avoid heart disease, various types of cancer and tumors, served with honey helps sooth soar throats and relieves cold symptoms, aids stomach ailments and is a soothing and relaxing drink.

We all remember those old movies about the South during the Civil War and soldiers being offered a nice glass of ice tea on the plantations. Thing is, it’s probably not real. The first serving of ice tea probably came in 1904 at the St. Louis World’s Fair when Richard Blechynden was trying to sell his hot tea but it was too hot outside to get many takers. he decided to pour his tea over ice and it became an instant hit!

Often served in Mason Jar styled glasses (Mason Day is a day we created!) Ice Tea has become one of America’s. if not the world’s, favorite beverages. Served sweetened or natural,  it provides great taste and is almost always relaxing.

Today ice tea is served with many added flavors. Mint, raspberry, lemon… you name it, you can probably added it to ice tea. And of course, there is the famous Long Island Ice Tea that you will never forget once you’ve had it! Or maybe again, you will forget because it is a bit strong.
