Mystery Object Hunt (May 29 - June 4)

Mystery Object Hunt (May 29 - June 4)

This week we welcome a chilly start to International Mud Month – with the rain we are having as I write this, I don’t doubt it will live up to its name. 

Monday 29 May
This must be my favourite day of the year: Put A Pillow On Your Fridge Day. Not only is it perfectly ridiculous, it even has a genuine history. In the early 1900s, people used to place cloth in their larder for good luck, and the tradition evolved with the use of fridges.

Tuesday 30 May
Today is Water A Flower Day in the US. I’m starting to wonder if there’ll be any more flowers left though once this rain eases… perhaps water your flatmate instead? They’re probably more malnourished.  

Wednesday 31 May
World No Tobacco Day is the perfect day to quit smoking. It’s also Fish And Chips Day courtesy of the Irish Traditional Italian Chippers Association. Reward yourself for quitting smoking by eating some traditional Irish-Italian chips.

Thursday 1 June
No shoes, no problem! Go Barefoot Day has arrived, and I can’t think of a less wise thing to do on the lovely, glittering-glass landscape we live in. 

Friday 2 June
Today is Leave The Office Earlier Day in America but it’s a free world so we can celebrate it too…

Saturday 3 June
Chimborazo is a volcano whose peak is the point on earth that is closest to the moon – and today is Chimborazo Day!  Celebrate by climbing a mountain or a hill or some stairs or climbing into bed maybe. 

Sunday 4 June
Hug Your Cat Day! (Hug your cat).
