It’s hard to believe Christmas and New Year’s Day have come – and gone. Give it a few months and we’ll be saying, “can you believe Christmas is only a few weeks away?” Isn’t that’s how it always goes…
Even though two of the biggest holidays are over, we won’t be bored here at Holiday Palooza, because as I’m sure you’ve come to know, the weird, insane and often unjustifiable holidays just keep coming.
Let’s begin with Festival of Sleep Day which falls on Jan. 3. This one sounds like it’s right up my alley, especially seeings how it falls on a Sunday this year, and is also the day before the kids go back to school (dread it). Fruitcake Toss Day is Jan. 3, as well, although some maintain this holiday is the 9th. Take your pick of dates – just make sure to work this one into your schedule.
I’m not sure I’ve ever eaten any fruitcake, and honestly have no desire to. There are those who insist it’s ambrosia fit for the gods, though. Whatever floats your boat, I suppose. I would, however, take great pleasure in a fruitcake toss.
On Jan. 7, we celebrate I’m Not Gonna Take It Anymore Day. I like this one already. No matter what is bothering you, no matter what seems to be going wrong, today is the day to take the bull by the horns and make a simple declaration: “I’m not gonna take it, anymore.” I feel better already.
We round out the week with National Joygerm Day and Show and Tell Day at Work, which both land on Jan. 8. Might I begin by saying I have no clue as to what a joygerm is – and frankly, I’m not sure I want to know… And if I were you, and you happen to have joygerms, I wouldn’t show and tell that information at the office.
That’s it for this week, so until next week, get your party on!
