I am always intrigued by the number of special days that have been designated. Each month is claimed by number causes and celebrations.
Who says September is National Chicken Month? What does National Chicken Month mean? Who approves or disapproves of such a status? Where can I go to get a month approved as National Blogging Month? What good would it do to have a National blogging Month?
I'm sure others have more questions about naming a month for some issue or cause. You rarely know about a special month unless you look it up on the internet.
So as well as being National Chicken Month there are others for September. ..National Potato Month, National Rice Month, National Cholesterol Month, National All American Breakfast Month. So that's a lot of celebration for one month. Trust me, if you look a bit you'll find others.
Now some months are designated to promote a worthy cause. That's okay.
Now the month celebration is bad enough but days are taken too. Some days have several designations. Try National Cheese Pizza Day, National Teddy Bear Day, National Play doh Day, National Chocolate Milkshake Day. There are probably many more. Do we need these special days?
If I celebrated all these days I would be exhausted.
Have you ever participated in one of these weird little days?
Would you like to designate a month for something special and what would it be?
I think it's a bit much. I'd like a plain old month that doesn't mix me up.
