There are loads of national days now – some being a lot more obscure than others!
Anton and I thought that we’d keep you up to date with some of the best 🙂
Take today for example, Friday 23rd November, it doesn’t really sound that special but guess what, it just happens to be ..
Eat A Cranberry Day
Providing great cardiovascular, immune system and anti-cancer benefits. But you may need more than one for any impact
Generally found in a pub, yey, let’s go and play some tunes!
National Flossing Day
Hmmm OK so it’s good for your teeth and gums, but urghhhhh
Turkey Leftovers Day and You’re Welcome Day
For our american colleagues following the festivities of Thanksgiving yesterday
And what about the weekend?
Saturday is …
Buy Nothing Day
Apparently it’s the day to not shop (is that physically possible?) prior to Shopping Reminder Day the day after
For all you coffee lovers, go get your caffeine kick with pride
Guru Nanak’s Birthday
Born on 20th October 1469 in Punjab, India, he was the founder of Sikhism and the first of the ten Sikh Gurus
Saint Catherine’s Day
Apparently there are seven, so not sure which gets the special day but if it is St. Catherine of Alexandria then legend has it that she was to be executed on a torturous device called a Breaking Wheel, which thereafter became known as the Catherine Wheel
Shopping Reminder Day
So after no shopping on Saturday it’s officialy a month to Christmas so start panicking. Get to the shops – go, go, go!
So there you have it, several reasons to celebrate, or maybe not! But at least you now know more useless facts 🙂
Have a great weekend
