Day 1399: National ___ Day

In my nation of the United States of America, EVERY day is National Something Day.

If today is National Skepticism Day where you are, check out this link.

Yesterday, I saw signs for two out of the three National _____ Days listed for October 29:

Today — which is National Candy Corn Day,  National Speak Up for Service Day, and  National Publicist Day — I am speaking up and publicizing all the other corny photos I took (in order) on National Cat Day, National Oatmeal Day,  and National Hermit Day:

As you can see, we gave our cats some toys for National Cat Day,  and they celebrated like they do on any other day.

In anticipation of some upcoming national events here (including Halloween and Election Day), here’s “National Brotherhood Week” written and performed in the 1960s by our national treasure,  Tom Lehrer (who is still alive on this day):

 

Finally,  what day would you like today to be? I’m speaking  up — candidly, cornily, and publicly — and declaring today National Gratitude Day, as I express gratitude to all who helped me create this post and — of course! — to all my readers.

  1. How does one get to declare a National______Day? Who decides?

  2. And a very happy Love a Blog Day to you, Ann.

  3. Every day is a day to find funny, inspiring, thought-provoking ideas here on your blog. It brightens up every day.
    And I never know what to expect. This morning for instance I’m imagining an expert clam opener who realized clam opening isn’t enough to make a career so learned to play the piano to have something to fall back on.
    I suspect that’s true of Tom Lehrer. He became a performer in case being a Harvard mathematics professor didn’t pan out.
    And it was a good way to make a few clams.

  4. At my age every day Is National Thank you day. Just waking up every morning is a celebration. :o)

  5. I’m grateful you posted the photo of the ad for a piano player with clam opening knowledge. I would never have thought to pair those two things — and I’m grateful I now do!

    I’m also grateful for Sunday morning where I can spend some time reading blogs like yours and getting inspired and uplifed!

    Grateful for you and so much more on National Gratitude Day.

  6. I think we need a National-its-not-s0-bad-sleep-on-it-everything-will-look-better-tomorrow day Ann! ❤
    Diana xo

  7. It looks as if it’s Oscar and Harley’s National Day!

  8. Every day is an opportunity to celebrate and be grateful. This is National “Inspiring Ann is on the Mend Day!”

  9. I think there are too many National this or that days and to be honest don’t see the point in most of them

  10. I love Tom Lehrer songs. National Gratitude Day sounds good. Maybe a year of gratefulness would be good too. In any event, I’m grateful for your blog!

  11. International”Arrive One Day Late to the Post Day,” for me! 🙂 Sorry, Ann
