Every time I turned around in January someone was posting how long January was, how cold it was, how soon will spring be here. I was watching a comedian yesterday, I can’t even tell you who it was, it was a Facebook scroll. My point being, he said something to the effect of… America has lots of areas where you can find your ideal temperature. If you are choosing to stay in a place where it’s -70 below, then don’t complain about it, embrace it. While that is easier said than done… I decided not to talk about the weather, or Valentine’s Day… But the kookiest of things… those “holiday’s” that no one has heard of, and some you have… Here is the next week:
- Feb 21: National Sticky Bun Day
- Feb 22: National Walking the Dog Day
- Feb 23: National Dog Biscuit Day
- Feb 24: National Tortilla Chip Day
- Feb 25: National Clam Chowder Day
