Today we celebrate:

Peach Blossom Day – Peach blossoms are found on peach trees which were first cultivated in China a very long time ago. A beautiful and delicate looking flower, I'm wondering if they smell like peaches.

National I Want You To Be Happy Day – Today is all about being unselfish and doing whatever will make someone else happy, as long as it is legal. Extreme example: You cannot kill someone just because it would make someone else happy, so don't even think about it.

National Cold Cuts Day – What would our sandwiches be without cold cuts in them? There is such an amazing variety of cold cuts out there to experience and yet, I only ever buy ham and turkey because that is all my children want to eat.

National Anthem Day – The United States adopted The Star-Spangled Banner as its National Anthem on this day in 1931. A good choice, if you ask me, although they didn't. It was written during the War of 1812 by Francis Scott Key who was being detained on a British ship during the attack on Fort Henry.

Unique Names Day – Today is a day to celebrate those of us who have unusual names. Do you have a name that no one has ever heard of or knows how to spell? Do you have a friend with a name like that? Do you wish you had a name like that? I don't. I get tired of correcting people who spell my name wrong as it is (so I don't usually bother) and it's not even that uncommon.

National Mulled Wine Day – This is a beverage that is made by mixing red wine with mulling spices and raisins. It is usually served warm and the alcohol content is optional. Definitely a drink that will warm you up on this cold winter night.

To celebrate today, tell your kids about your unusual name or make up an unusual name to use for today you enjoy a nice warm mug of mulled wine and listen to your children sing the National Anthem because it makes them happy. Then eat some cold cuts at the table with a lovely peach blossom centerpiece.
