Today we celebrate:

Feast of Saint James - James was one of Jesus Christ’s apostles, and brother of John, another apostle. He is traditionally believed to be the first of the apostles to be martyred for his faith when he was killed by order of King Herod.

Health and Happiness with Hypnosis Day - I couldn’t find much information for this day but it appears to be a day to improve your health and level of happiness by using hypnosis. I have heard that sometimes hypnosis can help with issues like overeating and smoking, so I guess it stands to reason that it could help in other ways too. Maybe with blood pressure issues, for example. And if it can help with relaxation and stress reduction, that would certainly make us happier, right? It’s worth a try, but make sure you go to a reputable Hypnotist, not your cousin Vinny who read a book about it once.

International Red Shoe Day - This is a day of remembrance for people who have died because of illnesses that are considered invisible. They care called that because the outward appearance of the person doesn’t change, and the illnesses, such as Lyme Disease and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, present symptoms that can be very mysterious with no obvious cause. Indeed, some people start to believe that the patient is making up their symptoms, and they should just get up and get on with life. Which is, of course, exactly what the person would love to be able to do. This day was created in memory of Theda Myint, of Australia, who died on this day in 2013 because of Lyme Disease. Honor the day by wearing red shoes today.

National Wine And Cheese Day - Created by Jace Shoemaker-Galloway, this is a day to celebrate a popular combination of flavors. Who doesn’t like wine and cheese together? Well….me, I guess, since I can’t really eat cheese. But I used to like it and there are lots of people with very refined tastes who can tell you which cheese goes best with which wine. I have never been that good and I would eat any cheese with any wine and think it was delicious.

National Hot Fudge Sundae Day – Does anyone really need an excuse to have a hot fudge sundae? Well, if you do, I've just given it to you. You’re welcome!

Carousel Day or Merry-Go-Round Day – This is a day to celebrate Carousels. They were invented in 1871 by William Schneider and children and adults have enjoyed them ever since. Although the antique wooden carousels that were carved in the late 1800s and early 1900s are quickly becoming extinct, you can find a few around that have been restored.  Otherwise, the newer ones still go round and round so they are fun as well.

Culinarians Day – This is a day for people who love food and love to cook. This kind of person is considered to be a chef whether it's a hobby or a living. This is not a day to simply cook. It is a day to create, or if you do not have that talent, it is a day to order and enjoy food made by those who do.

Thread The Needle Day – This is a term that can either refer to sewing or to the fine line that is found between two difficult decisions. I'm unsure which we are celebrating today so feel free to use whichever suits your situation.
