Did you Know Today Is Celebration of Life Day and Blonde Brownie Day - See What Other Fun Holiday We Have This Year

It’s finally 2018, and I’ve resolved to have more little moments of celebration in the New Year. We all look forward to the big celebrations, like Christmas, New Year’s and July 4th. But did you know there are so many other quirky holidays on the calendar just begging to be commemorated? What about a slice of garlic bread for National Garlic Day? Some pet cuddles for National Cat Day?

I love visiting National Today every day. We have a huge dry erase board at work and it is so fun to post what holiday is being celebrated every single day as well as fun holiday facts that are sure to interest your friends and visitors.
