Harness your party hats. Inflate your balloons. Scatter the confetti. Get ready to celebrate like never before.
Monday 14 August – Gary Larson’s Birthday
Nothing of importance is happening today, so I looked up famous peoples’ birthdays. Happy birthday, Gaz.
Tuesday 15 August – Relaxation Day
Last week we had Lazy Day, this week we have Relaxation Day. There are over 52 combined synonyms for ‘lazy’ and ‘relaxation’, so we could easily make a full year of this trend.
Wednesday 16 August – Wave At The Surveillance Cameras Day
Seeing a surveillance camera looking at you is more guilt-inducing than strolling past a police officer. Proclaim your innocence today by waving at the surveillance cameras that spot you.
Thursday 17 August – Black Cat Appreciation Day
It’s time to call out the fool who determined all black cats to be a sign of bad luck. What were they thinking? Black cats are fabulous.
Friday 18 August – Bad Poetry Day
Indulge in a fine evening of reading and creating the most ghastly, arrhythmic and uncultured collection of words possible. Might I suggest some Rebecca Black lyrics or some William McGonagall.
Saturday 19 August – Potato Day
Today prompts a multitude of challenging decisions: Will you eat hash browns or a baked potato? Hot chips or packet chips? Gratin or mash? Salad or soup?
Sunday 20 August – Chocolate Pecan Pie Day
Last but not least, the junk food day we’ve all been waiting for. Enjoy.
