Sorry, I'm so far behind right now....and want to get this up before work.
). National Chocolate Chip Day: Oh yes, any chocolate holiday is a good day. This day celebrates celebrates and enjoys sweet, tasty chocolate chips. Chocolate chips are a great invention, and certainly deserve a little recognition. I know I like them...lol
2). National Pizza Party Day: Yes, what goes good with chocolate chip cookies....PIZZA. I do wish we had celebrated this one....and we almost did. I think any day is good for a pizza party.
3). Staw Hat Day: The exact date of Straw Hat Day varies somewhat in the United States, but May 15th is often cited. Straw Hat Day is the unofficial start of summer and the official start of straw hat season if you are worried about when you could begin wearing yours. I actually don't own a straw hat, just lots of baseball caps. Maybe I should think about getting one, as I see a lot of Southern ladies wearing 'em.
4). Armed Forces Day: Lots of different countries celebrate this holiday, but it's celebrated on many different days. Here in the U.S., we celebrate Armed Forces Day every year on the third Sunday in May. The day was created in 1949 to honor Americans serving in the five U.S. military branches – the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard – following the consolidation of the military services in the Department of Defense. The first Armed Forces Day was celebrated by parades, open houses, receptions and air shows. In 1962, President Kennedy established Armed Forces Day as an official holiday. The United States' longest running city-sponsored Armed Forces Day Parade is held in Bremerton, Washington. I wish we'd do a little more to celebrate this holiday. We need to celebrate all our men and women in the military.
5). Police Officer's Memorial Day: It honors and remembers police officers who gave their lives while on duty. This holiday was created on October 1, 1961, when Congress asked the president to designate May 15 to honor peace officers. John F. Kennedy signed the bill into law on October 1, 1962, so yes, this is a true holiday that we should celebrate....and flags are to fly at half mast in remembrance of the officers killed while on duty. I actually know 2 families that lost police officer family members in the line of duty. Chris, your hubby is a police officer....give him a hug from me today in appreciation for all he does.
I'll try to get tomorrow's posted after work....(long story)
