I love to celebrate. I love to make a fuss over birthdays and holidays, I love decorating and putting out fun little reminders of the season, and there’s just something about balloons that can turn a rough day around. But, as the school year has begun and families settle into a new routine, the holidays can seem so far away. The days have a way of blending together, chaos and busyness replacing the fun of summer. It doesn’t have to be that way, though. There are loads of ways you can add a little celebration into a rough week. I love celebrating those silly, made-up national days to surprise the kids and perk up the week. You know the ones – National Donut Day (yes, please!), National Talk Like a Pirate Day, National Go Barefoot Day… Someone went to all the time and effort to make up reasons to celebrate life, and you better believe I’ll take whatever chance I can get.
For the next few months, I am going to be sharing some of my favorite National Days and fun ways to celebrate with your family. Add them into your week and have a little fun!
Let’s get started with September. This month has so many fun ways to celebrate! As much as I would love to go through each one, I doubt anyone would be awake at the end of the post, so I’ve narrowed it down to my favorite 5.
September 5th: National Cheese Pizza Day
Share a favorite family recipe. Bake and decorate cookies, and by all means let them lick the bowl!
