In our family, June is a busy month with fifteen members celebrating either a birthday or anniversary. This year we’re also adding two graduations to the mix. To say that we should consider investing in Hallmark stock is an understatement.
For those who have no weddings or 2012 graduations, be of good cheer. You still have cause to celebrate, and it may not even require any cash outlay.
June 5, aka Festival of Popular Delusions Day, provides a wonderful opportunity to take advantage of a quality or what otherwise might be considered a short coming and celebrate it. Just think. You could create your own slogan, promote it on Facebook and you and hundreds of your closest friends can enjoy the day free of charge. I’m going for “Connect with Clutter” so I don’t have to clean my office, but I doubt it will catch on – especially with my husband, aka Mr. Clean. How about “Pound Proud” for those who on other days might need to lose a few. Celebrate today start your weight reduction program tomorrow. I think it might have potential.
What about June 16 and National Hollerin’ Contest Day? I’m not sure if I’d be interested in judging this event, but I have a neighbor who could provide some stiff competition to any contenders.
If you don’t mind spending a little, you might consider either June 20, National Ice Cream Sundae Day or June 22, National Éclair Day. June 29th is National Camera Day, so if you want to upgrade yours, you could be looking at a significant expense.
Need other reasons to celebrate in June? Take your pick of these bizarre holidays. There are 30 from which to choose. Some of them seem rather lame, so here’s a different idea? Why not come up with a list of blessings throughout your life and celebrate those? Seems to me, we’d never run out.
