I’m not a big fan of manufactured holidays that are all about overpriced flowers, chocolate, restaurant meals, and other so-called expressions of devotion.
Instead, may I propose a few alternatives:
Pizza Day: Celebrating one of the great food inventions of the century
Good Hair Day: Get out and about, knowing you look amazing
Junk Food Day: Pick your poison and indulge without judgement
Trashy Novel Day: Curl up with something absolutely superficial
I-Found-My-Keys Day: (Includes those reading glasses located atop one’s head). Celebrate by going somewhere you’d otherwise have to walk to
Favorite Movie Day: In our house, this is a multi-month tradition, with Dear Husband insisting we watch Four Weddings and a Funeral, Casablanca, or North by Northwest every time he spies them
New Socks Day: Does anyone know why socks always wear out at the heel, even expensive ones? Argh.
I’m-Really-Not-Sick-Sick Day: ‘Nuff said.
Manicurist Day: Doesn’t he or she deserve special recognition for keeping us presentable?
Purge Day: Clean your closets, toss or donate your crap, and then buy something new and fabulous
Happy Valentine’s Day to you, dear readers! xoxo
💯! Im on my way to visit my Valentine upstate.
Janet Jannelli died Friday night of lymphoma at 81. Wow was she a trooper. Indefatigable even when symptoms were harsh.
Im executrix, kids inherit. Will make a difference to them.
More soon! 😘
Junk Food Day is something I need to celebrate. I haven’t had a Big Mac or a Burger King Whopper in decades. I want them!

Absolutely! I think you should choose whatever day you wish and then lobby to make it a national holiday 🙂

Love all of these days. I think I will put a few on my calendar at random, and celebrate them as they pop up on my calendar. Thank you!
In homage to your recent post, how about “Stack of Books” or “Curl Up and Read” Day? Thanks for reading and commenting!
