Alert! Alert! National Cheeseball Day is coming up fast, on April 17. Perhaps you will celebrate by lovingly crafting a cheeseball. Perhaps you weren’t even aware of this day, which might make you wonder what other special holidays you’ve been missing throughout the year. NOT to worry, here are some important ones to mark on your calendar, based on exhaustive Google research: May 12 is National Miniature Golf Day, August 31 is National Trail Mix day, October 21 is Reptile Awareness Day, January 24 is Beer Can Day. And, perhaps best of all, September 3 is National Welsh Rarebit Day. (Prepare ahead and order your rarebits from Amazon, whatever they are!)
Oddly enough, festival-happy Americans seem to have missed out on key days that celebrate treasured parental pastimes and objects, as well as our lovely spouses and children and their less-than-lovely habits. And so, here are some suggestions. Contact your Congressperson!
