Today's celebrations:

Caramel Popcorn Day
National Beer Day
No Housework Day
World Health Day

I think you could celebrate a combination of some of these things, but I'm not sure where the health part would come in.

Although I like caramel popcorn, I was not able to enjoy it today. However, I am proud to say that I did no housework today and am enjoying the honored beverage as I type this. No comment on world health day at this time (I spent most of the day in a hospital). Thank you.

I unfortunately did have to do some housework today, so that was the only holiday that I "celebrated". Not really my idea of a celebration.

Sorry that you spent the day in a hospital. Hope everything is okay.

Havva good one
I don't want it all, I just want to share it all (including the responsibility) with others.

Today is a great day to draw a bird and the zoo would be a perfect place to get some inspiration (Zoo Lovers Day). Enjoy!

I'm not a good artist (to put it mildly), so I didn't even attempt to draw a bird yesterday.

Today is:

Name Yourself Day http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreh...ourselfday.htm

Winston Churchill Day http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreh...urchillday.htm

When I was a little girl, I wished that my name was Hailey. Maybe I will be Hailey for today.

I talk to myself but try not to resort to name-calling.

Snack time
It is Chinese Almond Cookie Day and it is reputed that this cookie brings good luck. Happy sweeping!

National Siblings Day

I don't think that I've ever had a Chinese Almond Cookie, but I bet they are tasty.

I have a sister, so I would like to honor her today.

If it wasn't so cold out today, I might have taken my brother golfing. Actually, we both would have preferred Disc Golf and there are several courses near us. I don't have a sister, but I bet they can be tasty also.
CB, I am sure that you appreciate ASPCA Day and Farm Animals Day.
Other observances include 'Global Day to End Child Sexual Abuse' but I couldn't find a link to that, so here is more (notice the links are not quite in order- this is why I try not to post while enjoying a Belgian tripel).

I have 4 sisters & 1 brother and treasure each one of them. I am very fortunate that we are all still here! We live in different states but see one another 4 times a year

This is good. We owe much to our parents but have much more in common with our siblings.

I do appreciate ASPCA Day and Farm Animals Day. Animals and their welfare is very important to me.
