TT - June Holidays

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?

Thursday Thirteen hub to see what everyone else is counting this week.

I can't wait for National Eat Your Veggie Day - I think I will tell my mother and have her force my father to celebrate it!

5 and 13 are on my dance card now! This was a fun list. I wish I had my applesauce for tomorrow. There's always next year!

This Eclectic Life said...

I don't know if I can celebrate vegetable eating...are we going to have a celebration for hollering? When's Daffy Duck Day?

Cheerio said...

Happy TT!

DrillerAA said...

Count me in on the chocolate ice cream. That ought to be at least a weekly celebration.

Happy TT, mine will be up first thing in the morning.

Adelle said...

marcia said...

I love the 15th

Alice Audrey said...

I like the one for Popular Delusions. I could get into that.

Peter Plum said...

Wow, what a list. I'm glad I'm a fruit, so that I won't get eaten on "Eat your Vegetables day." But you better believe my friends will be hiding out.

Happy TT!

Darla said...

I'm thinking National Chocolate Ice Cream Day should be celebrated during the entire month. :-)

grace said...

I wish every one of these are actual holidays!

Kelley said...

hmmmm today is Popular Delusions Day, and mine were just shattered. The 'good parent' delusion. According to my daughter...

Better go and buy some applesauce for tomorrow.

storyteller said...

How fun! I love to celebrate just about anything ... and TODAY's is a delightful one I'll carry with me ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

WHAT? You were cheering for the Wings and you call yourself my friend?

The horror. The horror.

There should be a National Penguin Traitor Day, just for you.

Seriously... I'll take you up on chocolate ice cream day.

Robert said...

Let me get this straight. Today is the Festival of POPULAR Delusions Day? Popular? As opposed to the unpopular delusions? Do I dare ask examples from each category? I'd do some research but upon learning that tomorrow is National Applesauce Cake Day, I've got much to do. It got here much quicker this year than I expected and I'm so unprepared.

Playful Professional said...

I'm gonna have to remember the national chocolate ice cream day. Love it.

Sharon said...

Fun list! I like national chocolate ice cream day. To be patriotic, I'll oblige. ;)

I say you should make some cards for these special days & submit them to Hallmark. lol

Denise Patrick said...

Wow! So many ways to have fun. I think I'll back some Applesauce Muffins for tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting my TT!

Domestic Spaz said...

Where is this Festival of Popular Delusions? That sounds like just my kind of party!

I'm all geared up for National Chocolate Ice Cream Day. That's my kind of holiday. Heck, that might even replace Halloween as my favorite!

Lis Garrett said...

HA! Great list! Where did you find these??

Chris said...

Eat your vegetables day is my birthday. How much does that suck? Great list, happy TT

Christine said...

Those are some really fascinating ones Robin.
WOW! There's a chocolate icecream day!
I'm partial to the smile and hug days!

Happy TT!

Christina said...

Chocolate Ice Cream day is one to put on the calender!!!

Red said...

And my sons Birthday next week. Man, where does the time go. Just 19 years ago he was born. Darn he is getting old...not me!

Slacking Overachiever said...

Wow, I didn't realize there was so much to do and acknowledge this month. You're right, Hallmark is failing us.

p.s You have a beautiful kitchen!

Shannon said...

So incredibly random that people come up with holidays for these things.

Pieces of Me said...

Wow, the pop goes the weasle one is funny!

Gattina said...

Can't you change it into "International" holidays ? so I could participate too, lol !
