Interesting Holidays

We Missed It

National Puppy Day

Monday, March 23 was National Puppy Day.  We missed it and the pups are telling us about it. 
I think they are also telling us we should mark the pet holidays on the calendar.
So, I decided to search out National Dog Day and National Cat Day, but I found a LOT more! These are the ones we are marking on our calendars you can find more on Holidays and Observances.

Pet Holidays

I'm not going to list the ones that have already past.

Other Holidays

I also found a list of all sorts of holidays. Did you know there is a Hula in the Coola Day and a National Tooth Fairy Day and a Talk Like Shakespeare Day? It's true! You can see the list on Holidays Calendar.

What would you like to see celebrated as a holiday? You can celebrate that today because it is "Make Up Your Own Holiday Day." (giggling)

Best wishes,


  1. We missed puppy day too! I have to admit that we celebrate Festivus here. There are some funny holidays.

    1. "Festivus for the rest of us!" :-D
      There really are some funny holidays out there, but they do their job in bringing a smile or making you go, "hmmm."
