We’ve always been intrigued by the origination of “national celebration day” and its designations and where do they come from. We found several web-sites that list these celebratory days as well as giving us an opportunity to designate our day. One such site is Nationalday calendar.com where you can register a national day of your own invention. Here are some of the fun ones we found for you to celebrate in October:
October 6 – National Plus Size Appreciation Day- serves as a great opportunity to remind ourselves that when it comes to beauty, one size doesn’t fit all. Let’s celebrate the curves that men & women everywhere rock. So, whether you are a plus sized or not, get out & spread the word that having a little more to love can be a fantastic thing.
October 9 National Pet Obesity Day- When the pooch starts getting a little plump, you know it’s time for more walks, less table scraps, & perhaps an additional visit to the vet to make sure they’re still healthy. But while a rotund Rover can be a cute or funny sight, that extra layer for lovin’ can have some serious consequences. Thanks to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention (APOP), we can now all learn what it takes to keep our furry friends healthy and happy. Now let’s not talk about us!
October 13 National No Bra Day- also known as, every day after we get home from work day. Today is not just about comfort, though. This holiday, which falls right in the middle of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, is a time for women (and men!) to learn about breast health and reminds people that breast cancer is a potentially fatal disease, but also one of the most preventable forms of cancer. Learn to spot early warning signs and get an edge in the fight against cancer.
October 14 – Bald and Free Day- honors those of us with a beautiful, shiny top. People who are married to, or related to a bald headed person can celebrate with the honoree. Let’s cherish and appreciate the freedom that comes with being bald. While the rest of us are spending money on haircuts, hair shampoo, hair sprays, combs, etc. the bald guy is smiling as he saves money and time, They never have a “bad hair day” or worry whether they will lose their hair or is their hair turning gray.
Oct 15 National Grouch Day- To honor the world’s favorite grouch, Oscar, from “Sesame Street,” this holiday is a day to celebrate all the grouches we know — or to embrace the grouch that lives inside all of us. On this day no one can stop us from complaining, being irritable, or wallowing in misery. Because that is what grouches do! Also, this day teaches us that it’s good to spend time processing our negative emotions. On social media this a fun day with people posting jokes, memes, funny photos, and stories.
