The calendar says this is June 8, 2022, but did you know it is Best Friends Day? It’s also Name Your Poison Day and Upsy Daisy Day.
The truth is every day on the calendar has a designation for something to celebrate. June 9 will be Donald Duck Day, Earl Day, and Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day. Things really get complicated on Friday, June 10 — that’s Ballpoint Pen Day, Black Cow Day, Egg Roll Day, Herbs & Spices Day, and Iced Tea Day.
This practice is not limited to days. June is the month to celebrate Camping, Caribbean Americans, Country Cooking, Dairy, DJs, “Give a Bunch of Balloons,” Great Outdoors, Men’s Health, Papayas, and Roses.
If this sounds like a lot, it is. There are over 1500 reasons to celebrate over days, weeks, and months.
Who decides what gets celebrated? I have no idea.
