Pigs, Peanut Butter, and Fruit

NO! This is not a breakfast recipe!  Today is the day we finally give pigs their proper recognition and honor them for it is National Pig Day!  This highly intelligent domesticated animal is getting his 24 hours of fame and enjoying his nationally recognized holiday.  By the look in his eye, he is probably suggesting that if your stomach should begin to growl while glancing at his photo, you should take this opportunity to celebrate one of the other holidays recognized on March first, such as peanut butter or fruit compote.

Yes, we are celebrating National Peanut Butter Day and National Fruit Compote Day, too! Now if my friend, Snuggles, starts to make your mouth water and the sound of popping grease reverberate in your ear, pump the breaks and grab a jar of peanut butter or fruit cup instead.

Dedicated to my cousin, who wanted a pet pig. 

Public Sleeping Day

While I wouldn’t suggest getting overly into today’s choice holiday, I think you should definitely celebrate PUBLIC SLEEPING DAY!  I don’t think it matters if you do this in groups or individually.  The main point is that you nap and make it public.

Personally, I enjoy the occasional car cat nap from time to time, but if you’re anything like my sister, you’re a serial napper, so today is your day.  Seize the moment and celebrate like you mean it.  At the mall, the park, or standing up in line.  This holiday can be energizing and a lot of fun.

Tip:  If you’re a silent sleeper avoid celebrating in funeral homes.

Enjoy your day!

Dedicated to my sister. 

For the Foodies

Good Morning!  Today we celebrate Let’s Eat Right Day.  I’m also choosing to celebrate the related food holidays of National Clam Chowder Day and National Chocolate Covered Nut Day.  Not a contradiction if your soup is low-fat and your chocolate is dark.  And, just in case the two previous February booze holidays didn’t encompass your beverage of choice, it’s Open That Bottle Day, too.  What’s different about this beverage holiday? The husband and wife team that created it were very specific.  This is not a day to get sloshed alone, this is a day to gather and fellowship with friends and family.

Have fun and holiday on my friends!

Do a Grouch a Favor…

Today is honestly – Do a Grouch a Favor Day!  It is also National Almond Day.  I recently learned that although a handful of almonds a day is good for you, eating this fruit, yes, fruit, raw from the wild can actually be poisonous.  So today, I implore you to share a handful of almonds with a Grouch.  Tomorrow, give them the raw fruit.  I’M JUST KIDDING! LOL! Grab a handful of fruit and have a great day.
