so I never have to live without you.

We celebrate Winnie The Pooh Day on A.A.Milne’s birthday. Winnie was named after a bear at the Winnipeg Zoo. Christopher Robin was A.A.Milne’s son. What a perfect combination for children’s stories. But children grow up and favorite toys get lost or forgotten. We all have to grow up.
What’s the word for it? Check your Thesaurus on Thesaurus Day maybe we could find the right word or another word that better expresses our thoughts.
Let’s celebrate Rid the World of Fad Diet and Gimmicks Day. We all know the best way to live is by eating healthy well balanced meals, drinking plenty of water and getting regular exercise. But we all want that magic pill, that quick fix, so fad diets and gimmicks will continue on. 😉
I am not afraid…~ Joan of Arc
I was born to do this.

Today is the celebration of Epiphany or also known as the 3 wise man’s day. Some Christians wait until today to exchange gifts and celebrate the birth of the Christ Child.
For the rest of us today is National Take Down the Christmas Tree Day. So if not already done getter done today.
The food of the day is beans as we celebrate Bean Day. Beans, beans the magical fruit, the more you eat the more you toot. Nice baked beans with leftover ham. Mmmm…. 😉
Today’s quote is from Joan of Arc. Burned to death for telling the truth and doing what she believed was her destiny. Or was it because she was a woman who dared to lead men into battle?
The final test of a gentleman is his respect~ William Lyon Phelps
for those who can be of no possible service to him.
American – Educator / January 2, 1865 – August 21, 1943
For all of us that like to watch before we react to day is World Introvert Day. I’ve never figured out if I’m an introvert or not. I can function well in crowds, but prefer smaller groups and time alone.
We also pay homage to that wholly cheese as it is Swiss Cheese Day. Time for a grilled swiss cheese for lunch. 😉
On the 9th Day of Christmas my true love gave to me:
Nine ladies dancing
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five golden rings
Four calling birds
Three French hens
And a partridge in a pear tree
I always prefer to believe the best of everybody, it saves so much trouble.~ Rudyard Kipling
English – Writer / December 30, 1865 – January 18, 1936
On the Sixth Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me,
Six geese a laying, five golden rings
Four calling birds, three french hens
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree.
Those with live Christmas trees remember to water them as you celebrate Falling Needles Family Fest Day. My artificial tree is lit everyday until the New Year. It’s been my family tradition to take the tree down and put away the decorations on the first of January.
Bacon and tomato sandwiches sound like a wonderful way to celebrate Bacon Day. 😉
Don’t tell your friends about your indigestion.~ Arthur Guiterman
‘How are you’ is a greeting, not a question.

Celebrate the children around you and the child inside of you on Universal Children’s Day.
Try to see the humour in the Absurdity that surrounds us on National Absurdity Day. Practice saying: “That’s absurd” and giving a huge belly laugh while you enjoy your laughing yoga exercises.
Then have a nice piece of peanut butter fudge to celebrate National Peanut Butter Fudge Day. The calories and sugar don’t count today. 😉
The truth will set you free,~ James A. Garfield
but first it will make you miserable.
American – President / November 19, 1831 – September 19, 1881
You want the truth, but often people aren’t ready for the truth and until they are ready you can’t make them face it.
Today is International Mens Day. A day fighting for gender equality as men are starting to enter traditionally women dominated fields. Kindergarten teachers, day care, nurses, stay at home parenting….. True gender equality means that careers can be chosen without bias or discrimination.
Thank goodness we have modern ways to get rid of crap. Today is World Toilet Day. Without the modern toilet we would still be using outhouses or buckets.
Celebrate National Carbonated Beverage with Caffeine by having a Coke. You could add a bit of extra spice if you want. 😉
You can give without loving,~ Robert Louis Stevenson
but you can never love without giving.
Scottish – Writer / November 13, 1850 – December 3, 1894
One of my favorite memories of elementary school was in Grade 7 when our Principal, Mrs. Helen Coulter read Return to Treasure Island to the grade 8’s in our split class. The group of Grade 8’s were from poor local families and had below their grade level reading English skills. Her gift to them was to read a book of adventure and growing up to them. Hoping to instill in them a sense of love of reading. We should follow her example on World Kindness Day. Going above what is required with love.
The third annual dance in High School was the Sadie Hawkins Dance in remembrance of Sadie Hawkins Day. It was the girls’ turn to ask boys to the dance. I never had the nerve to ask someone to go out with me at that age. I soon learned that you had to put yourself out there if you wanted anything you had to ask.
Samples of wine while touring sounds good to me. So celebrate Wine Tour Day, even if it’s just in sampling the bottles in your own fridge. 😉
However big the fool,~ Nicolas Boileau-Despreaux
there is always a bigger fool to admire him.
French – Poet / November 1, 1636 – March 13, 1711
The day after Halloween is All Saints Day. So be certain to pray to your favorite Saint and remember all of the other saints big and small.
Today is also World Vegan Day. So hug your favorite vegan and celebrate with my favorite vegetable, chocolate. ❤
Of all the Shoulds celebrate Give Up Your Shoulds Day. Forget about your shoulds and do the right thing for you. Dance like no one is looking.
