Know what today is?
NATIONAL CHILI DAY!!!
Okay, I have to admit, it’s doesn’t rank up there with Valentine’s Day, but hey, it’s CHILI! And at least one of my sons makes award-winning chili. If a man does the cooking and I don’t have to, that makes me celebrate!
It’s also National Chocolate Covered Nut Day. And National Pistol Patent Day. I really think we should party.
Of course, this month we’ve already missed National Serpent Day
and National Weatherman’s Day. 😦
But not to worry. In just a few days we can celebrate Leap Day.
You know about Leap Day, right? It’s the day St. Bridget talked St. Patrick into letting allowing women to propose to men instead of just the other way around. (1 day every four years. That’s fair.) It’s also known as Bachelors Day. A man who was proposed to and turned the woman down had to pay a penalty of a gown or money to the woman he wouldn’t marry.
Babies born on Leap Day are called Leaplings or Leapers.
Leap Day is also St. Oswald’s Day. (If you have information about St. Ossie, let me know.)
Did you know:
- Superman was a Leap Day baby? In 1988, Superman celebrated his 50th birthday!
- Leap Day isn’t the same as Sadie Hawkins Day.
- The Leap Day symbol is a frog or toad?
- The official Leap Day game is Leap Frog?
But that’s in a few days. Today’s National Chili Day. Make a batch and share.
Tomorrow celebrate Tell a Fairy Tale Day.
Monday we can all dance! It’s No Brainer Day.
Live happy. Find reason each day and CELEBRATE!!!
