Today is Thanksgiving Day or Turkey Day in Canada. I’ve already had my fill and will be enjoying left overs today. Thanks to COVID we have started a new tradition for Thanksgiving. No big gatherings so we get to go to 4 different small gatherings. On Saturday we go to my Grand-daughter’s house, where her mother does a fantastic traditional turkey dinner with all the fixings. On Sunday we go to my Grand-sons’ place for a turkey roll with amazing vegetables. On Monday we eat left overs that have been sent home. The next weekend we do it all over again with the other 2 sons.
Today is also the Day of the Girl. To celebrate girl power and strength. Remembering famous women like Eleanor Roosevelt who quietly used their positions to give women strength.
Once upon a time…..It’s also the Kraken Day or also known as Myths and Legends Day. So get out a good book and read about some myths or legends.
Here we are, Federal Election Day in Canada. So for all my Canadian friends, get out there and vote. How appropriate that it is also National Gibberish Day. All the words have been said during the campaign period. Now just to see if there is any realy change or it’s all been just words.
Oh well, we can always celebrate National Pepperoini Pizza Day.
In the middle of Canada’s Federal Election 2021 we celebrate the International Day of Democracy. For my Canadian friends and followers, be certain to vote. It is your civid duty and democratic privilage.
Today is also the First Day of Yom Kippur. The last day to atone your sins in the 10 days of repentance. A day of fasting and prayer. Jews seek to purify their souls by denying the bodily pleasures.
Today is also Green Peace Day. So save the whales and save the world.
I decided today, Marco Polo’s birthday should be celebrated by Marco Polo Day. Not the swimming pool game, but the explorer and adventurer. Celebrate by nurturing the adverturer in you. Go for a walk or a short trip to enjoy the variety of life and flavours of the world around you. Discover something new to you.
Kayaking on the Old Ausable Chanel lets me re-energize my soul. Counting turtles on my way to the far bridge of the loop I think I missed a few on this log. I counted 10, but there were 3 adjacent to the log that I missed before I looked at the photo evidence.
So on National Live Creative Day be certain to do something a bit creative in your ordinary day. A little bit of arts and crafts or painting, or just dance.
Then after working up an appetite celebrate Eat a Hoagie Day followed by National Cream-Filled Donut Day.
40 years ago today I gave birth to my first child, a boy and a joy. We named him after his father and I was promised I could always call him Jay. Children grow up and choose their own direction. He prefers his real name over his childhood name, but I refuse to call him anything but Jay. None of his friends even recognize the name for he is no longer a child. But he will always be my son. I wish him the very best for the next 40 years. ❤
Through a lot of good luck, fate and faith my husband and I are celebrating our 42nd Wedding Anniversary. How convenient that it is also Kiss and Make Up Day as we’ve certainly done our share of both over the years.
Today is also Willing-to-Lend-A-Hand Wednesday. So look for ways to help your loved ones today.
Those who live in Spain are celebrating the annual Tomato Throwing Festival at the height of the season. Seems like a waste of good food to me, but I know I do enjoy throwing the over ripe or partially eaten ones over the fence towards the railroad.
