Did you know that every day is a holiday in America? You should be putting on your party hat every morning because we are always celebrating something! Little did you know that in the week ahead this great nation will pause to honor and celebrate causes, foods, and just some really weird things.
Thanks to checkiday.com, I was able to compile some of them for you: Make a Hot Dog Day, National Play-Doh Day, National Wrinkled Raincoat Day, Miniature Golf Day, and (my personal favorite) National Talk Like a Pirate Day. I swear I'm not making this up! I'm not denying that this is a great list of celebration inspiration, but I have a better list as we prepare to make our way to the Alpine Resort and participate in the MS Challenge Walk weekend.
September 16 - Thank You Day - Take a moment to thank the folks who donated their time, talent and money to get you to your fundraising goal.
September 17 - Pack Your Socks Day - Go ahead and pack some underwear too!
September 18 - Paint The Peninsula Orange Day - It's arrival day and time to get our ORANGE on!
September 19 - Lace Up Your Shoes Day or Let's Do This Day! - All the walking, training, and fundraising brings us to this day and our first step.
September 20 - Hang In There Day - Sore muscles, tired feet and a few random blisters will not stop us now!
September 21 - Finish Line Day - Pump your fist, lift your chin, stand tall and say, "TAKE THAT MS!!"
Let the celebration begin.
