I think I'm going to take Angela to see the last Twilight Movie today. Christopher doesn't want too see it, but he'd go to see Wreck It Ralph. Besides the movie, I have a TON of work to do today....and bills to pay. I hate paying bills.
Angela has at least 3 projects and a paper to do over Thanksgiving break, so she's not a happy camper.
So...what are we celebrating today....
1). Take a Hike Day: Hmm....I'm telling you to go take a hike! Boy, I feel better now. Hikes are distinguished from walks, in that they are taken in the woods, hills, mountains, or somewhere else in a nature setting. Hikes not only give you exercise, they also provide scenic sites and vistas, that are good for relaxation of the mind and soul.
2). Homemade Bread Day: I might celebrate this one. Bread has been made for thousands of years. Estimates date it's origin back to 5000-10,000 B.C. Modern day lifestyles has relegated homemade bread to the world of specialty baking and holiday baking. I do love homemade bread.
3). National Adoption Day: This special holiday is promoted and sponsored by a variety of child care and adoption groups. According to the websites of these sponsors, this day was created to finalize thousands of annual adoptions, and to celebrate and give recognition to families that adopt children. It is also intended to raise awareness of the tens of thousands of children awaiting adoption. I know a lot of people that have adopted kids.
4). Electronic Greeting Card Day: Gee, wonder who came up with this one... Today is the day to send e-cards. There are a variety of free sites that have free ecards you can send. Hopefully, I'll have one or two in my inbox today. (hint, hint).
5). World Peace Day: This holiday encourages us as individuals, to play a role in making the world a better place. This appears to be a grass roots effort, as this holiday was started by Don Morris of Miami Florida, around 1997.
6). National Survivors of Suicide Day: Every year, survivors of suicide loss gather together in locations around the world to feel a sense of community, to promote healing, and to connect with others like them. There are quite a few survivors on Gather. Events are being held in cities around the US....and if you can't make an event, there is a live webcast at 1 pm EST.
I think there may be a few other holidays being celebrated today also. If you find one, the list it below.....and have a wonderful Saturday.
