Silly Holidays!

posted on 3rd of august, 2010

Today is "the" National Watermelon Day here in the US… I bet you didn’t know that. I didn’t either until I heard it in the morning news today. I don’t know what the significance is of this day to many but obviously there is for some otherwise why did August 3rd become the official day for it. Just for giggles, I googled other bizarre “holidays”. And just for the month of August, here’s what my “diligent research” found:

For the Month:
Admit You're Happy Month
Family Fun Month
National Catfish Month
National Eye Exam Month
National Golf Month
Peach Month
Romance Awareness Month
Water Quality Month
National Picnic Month

1st Week - National Simplify your Life Week
2nd Week - National Smile Week
3rd Week - Friendship Week
4th Week - Be Kind to Humankind Week

And are you ready for this… Daily:
1 Friendship Day (first Sunday)
1 International Forgiveness Day (first Sunday)
1 National Raspberry Cream Pie Day
2 National Ice Cream Sandwich Day
2 Sisters Day (first Sunday)
3 National Watermelon Day
4 U.S. Coast Guard Day
5 Work Like a Dog Day
6 Wiggle Your Toes Day
7 National Lighthouse Day
7 National Mustard Day (first Saturday)
8 Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day
9 Book Lover's Day
10 Lazy Day
10 National S'mores Day
11 Presidential Joke Day
11 Son and Daughter Day
12 Middle Child's Day
13 Blame Someone Else Day (first Friday the 13th of the year)
13 Left Hander's Day
14 National Creamsicle Day
14/15 V-J Day
15 Relaxation Day
16 Chinese Valentine's Day/Daughter's Day
16 National Tell a Joke Day
17 National Thriftshop Day
18 Bad Poetry Day
19 Aviation Day
20 National Radio Day
21 Senior Citizen's Day
22 Be an Angel Day
22 National Tooth Fairy Day
23 Ride the Wind Day
24 Vesuvius Day
25 Kiss and Make Up Day
26 National Dog Day
26 Women's Equality Day
27 Global Forgiveness Day
27 Just Because Day
28 Race Your Mouse Day – pc mouse? I’m not sure!
29 More Herbs, Less Salt Day
30 Frankenstein Day
30 Toasted Marshmallow Day
31 National Trail Mix Day

We should get together and declare a National Microstockers Month, I pick September because I want it to be next month already (plus that’s when I joined DT). Or is there one already?

Forgive me for this silly blog but if nothing else, I hope it gave you some idea of a next photo session concept… how about images of racing pc mice for the 28th? sneaking zucchini onto your neighbor’s porch for the 8th? herbs & salt for the 29th?

Meanwhile, enjoy some watermelon today and I wish all of you a happy national watermelon day!

About me

My name is Juvy. Jennifer, the name on my profile, is my youngest daughter—she is the inspiration behind my creative work, not only in photography but also in many other things. As a very close friend of ours put it, Jennifer brings out the best in Juvy. So if you like my images, kudos to Jennifer; otherwise, well... we have Juvy to blame for. A little about me: I am a wife and a mother, first and foremost. By profession, I am an accountant, but wish that I am a photographer instead!
