Did you know that June is jam-packed full of holidays? I mean come on, everyone knows about Father's Day, graduations, and the gazillion wedding anniversaries, but did you know about these:
June 5 - Festival Of Popular Delusions Day (wouldn't it be better to call this "The Moon is Made of Green Cheese Day"?)
June 6 - National Applesauce Cake Day (could do worse)
June 7 - National Chocolate Ice Cream Day (getting even better now)
June 8 - Name Your Poison Day (uh oh, I hope this isn't a result of the previous two holidays)
June 9 - Donald Duck Day (now this could be fun)
June 10 - National Yo-Yo Day
June 11 - National Hug Holiday (we used to have a group here that ran around hugging people, I wonder what happened to them)
June 12 - Machine Day (are we talking coffee machines, copy machines, flying machines? How can we celebrate with such a wide mandate?)
June 13 - National Juggling Day and Kitchen Klutzes Of America Day (I sincerely hope no one is celebrating these two simultaneously)
June 14 - Pop Goes The Weasel Day (can you imagine the chaos this could cause?)
June 15 - Smile Power Day (is this replacing fossil fuels?)
June 16 - National Hollerin' Contest Day (remind me to take an excedrin that morning)
And last but not least...
June 17 - Eat Your Vegetables Day (really? they have a holiday for that?)
Hallmark is missing some great opportunities here, don't you think?
