365 Days of Celebration
by Marcie Connelly Lynn
Every day of the year can be a reason to celebrate. It doesn't have to be a big blow-out celebration; sometimes little celebrations are just as much fun. You just have to enjoy celebrating the obvious and the not so obvious. Something different every day. Perhaps you're looking for an idea for a different sort of party or get-together with friends. Are you a teacher and need a way of getting your kids motivated with history or geography? Maybe your children are spending way too much time playing video games or watching TV and you're looking for some fun alternatives for them. Maybe you just need a pick-me-up during a long, cold winter or on a rainy, summer afternoon. Pick a day … any day and make it into a holiday. Tailor it to your own needs.
In my research, I've been able to find a reason to celebrate 365 days a year … some years 366. Quite honestly, when I can't find an applicable holiday, I make one up. That's permissible. Life's short and you have to celebrate when and what you can.
Some holidays are celebrated on the same day each year and some float. Sometimes there's disagreement as to when the day should actually be celebrated. Really, it makes no difference … go with the flow. Some trivia, some history, some cultural awareness, some total nonsense!
So welcome to 2015...the 2015th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 15th year of the 3rd millennium, the 15th year of the 21st century and the 6th year of this decade.
Life's an adventure to be explored and celebrated. So enjoy every single day!
