Today we celebrate:

Hooray for Kids Day - I don’t know who created this day but it is all about celebrating children by acting like a child. I have an uncle who is really just a big kid and the kids in the family just gravitate to him because they recognize a kindred spirit. Be like that today, celebrate their youth by playing with them.

India Pale Ale Beer Day – India Pale Ale is a special kind of beer that is made a different way than regular beer. Do not ask me for the technical details. I found the information but I didn't understand it well enough to explain it to you. Just know that it is different, so if you haven’t tried it, maybe you should.

National Chocolate Chips Day - This is a day to celebrate the little chocolatey morsels that we add to our baked goods to add a sweet chocolate flavor to chocolate chip cookies or brownies or pancakes or muffins or….well, I could go on and on. I confess that sometimes I eat them all by themselves.

National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day - Well really, what better day to celebrate on the same day as National Chocolate Chips Day. This is the perfect opportunity to celebrate two things at one time. I prefer soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies. What is your favorite?

U.S. Coast Guard Day – This is a day to commemorate the founding of the United States Coast Guard on this day in 1790 by the Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton. Back then it was called the Revenue Marine.

Single Working Women's Day – This is a day to honor the single working women of the world. They have to find the time to do everything themselves. Name a job around the house and the single working woman has to do it on top of working for a living so she has money to do all the things that have to be done and possibly take care of a family as well.

National White Wine Day - Created by Jace Shoemaker-Galloway to celebrate the rich and very long history of white wines. People have been drinking wine for thousands of years, it’s even recorded in the Bible. So if you are 21 years of age or older, feel free to choose from the wide variety of white wines available, I know you’ll find one to your liking.

Quotations Day - On this day in 1855, John Bartlett published a book called Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations. Public speakers, authors and teachers love to quote people so books like this are very helpful to them. And where would we be without the notable quotes found in the Reader’s Digest. It is easier these days to find quotes with the internet, but be careful to double and triple check to make sure they are actually accurate.
