Celebration of Life Day is January 22! Although you should be appreciating your children and grandchildren every day, this holiday is a day to recognize and celebrate them. You’re supposed to step back and think about what makes your children and grandchildren so special. To truly celebrate, you should try to view the world through the lens of a child. And, if you want, you can shower the young ones of the world with presents and candy. We’re sure they wouldn’t mind.
Galentine’s Day is a holiday about joy, laughter, fun, and women. To quote the great Leslie Knope on the TV show “Parks and Recreation” from which the day gets its origins, “Oh, it’s only the best day of the year...Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus Frittatas”. Considered by some to be the anti-Valentines Day, Galentine’s Day is held every year on February 13. So this year, gather your best girlfriends together and celebrate the awesomeness of the ladies in your life. Whether you get together for a low-key movie night or do it up big with dinner and dancing, don't let this holiday pass you by without your gals at your side.
Valentine’s Day really did start as a feast day for St. Valentine, the patron saint of love and affection. But thanks to Chaucer and his tales, the day became infused with the romance, tension, and drama of the English imperial court. Et voila, 200 years later, it means we’re buying chocolates and making reservations for very expensive meals. Join us on February 14th as we celebrate this special day of love.
There are many words for this amazing man. Partner. Spouse. Hubby. Husband. Hunk … hopefully. We love and appreciate our husbands each and every day. But April 15 is particularly special. Pop that champagne, because it’s Husband Appreciation Day! This is a prime opportunity to show your hubby how special he is to you. Whether you simply give him a hug or buy him a bouquet of flowers, take some time out of your day to show your husband why he holds a place in your heart.
Ever heard the saying “there’s someone else out there who has the same face as you?” According to you, it’s probably Brad Pitt or Amanda Seyfried. But in all likelihood, it’s probably a normal person across the country you’ll never meet (with 7.4 billion people on the planet, there’s bound to be someone else out there who shares some of your features). Regardless, on April 20, we celebrate National Look-Alike Day. It’s the perfect day to try to convince people your doppelganger is a celebrity, instead of that completely normal person you bumped into at the supermarket. One small note though: if you’re trying to find your exact doppelganger, you might have to wait awhile. There’s only a 1 in 135 chance that there’s a single pair of exact doppelgangers! Can someone say #twinning?
