Welcome to July 2016. What’s the big deal, you may say? The month comes around every year.
Ah, but not THIS sort of July. Check the calendar and you’ll notice something different. It has five Fridays, five Saturdays, and five Sundays. For those of you who live for the weekends, soak it in. This occurence comes around only once every 823 years!
Today, of course, is Canada Day, our northern neighbor’s official birthday, and Monday will be our own Fourth of July. But, they are not the only special days in July. Try these on for size:
2nd — World UFO Day
4th — National Country Music Day; Sidewalk Egg Frying Day
6th — International Kissing Day
8th — National Blueberry Day
10th — Teddy Bear Picnic Day
15th — Tapioca Pudding Day; Cow Appreciation Day
20th — National Lollipop Day
21st — National Junk Food Day
23rd — National Hot Dog Day
24th — Parent’s Day (fourth Sunday in July)
26th — Aunt and Uncle Day
28th — National Milk Chocolate Day
29th — National Lasagna Day
30th — National Cheesecake Day
And, the 30th is a perfect day for Rotarians. It is the International Day of Friendship.
