Those are some interesting days to remember...and actually, No, I didn't know. Where is that, down in Florida?

Red said...

My car's called Elmo. And I insist that you name your car too, Carmen. It will totally revolutionise your rapport with it. But don't wait until October, do it today!

Andrew said...

Nov. 1 is All Saint's Day and my birthday. Coincidence? Hell yeah.

AC @ bloggedy blog

who can't wait to wiggle his toes in some beach sand in August (but who probably won't get a pedi for the occasion)

Tanya said...

Great days - wish they were all public holidays...

GreekGoddess said...

August 15th is a really big day in Freece. We celebrate the dormition of virgin Mary, nobody works and there are big celebrations around the country. so I guess it is a relaxation day.. LOL

I knew about National Nude Day. But, more importantly today is Embrace Your Geekness Day!

Messy Sue said...

Are these real??

Mom Nancy said...

Quite interesting. Captain Kangaroo day is also my sister's and my cousin's birthday, as well as the day my husband gave me my engagement ring.

Thanks for visiting my TT.

Shannon said...

Whoo Hoo! And there's National Be Heard Day on March 7. That's my own holiday for my business.

something blue said...

Hoot hoot! Tomorrow is naked day? Yippie! Oh wait is this just in the United States of America? Could we say it's International Nude Day. Gee I hope that doesn't actually mean I have to wear Nude Pantyhose! Now that would suck.

Stacie said...

What a great list...I loved your commentary on the side, too funny! Hard to pic a fave, but I'm gonna have to go with Goof off day. LOL GReat TT, I played too (thanks for visiting) Stacie

Lyn said...

Whew...You posted it. :-) Thanks for visiting FBO and my T13 - Bible Misquotes Edition.

Barbara said...

I love this list, and, no, I didn't know about any of them. WHO wants to go nude, anyway? :) Thanks for visiting.

Mama Duck said...

Great days, hee hee.

Stacy said...

Cool - I must go add National Relaxation and National Goof-Off days to my calendar RIGHT NOW! Those are holidays that should be observed and celebrated, unlike that naked one tomorrow! LOL :)

Have a great day, thanks for stopping by my T13!

Lazy Daisy said...

According to Random Yak there is "leave zuchini on your neighbor's porch day" too. Funny list.

Sarah said...

NUDE DAY IS TOMORROW? Why was I not aware of this?

I won't name my car. I named my old one, because it was 15 years old when I got it and it had character. Plus I had to be nice to it so it wouldn't decide to fall apart. I have no desire to name my brand new one.

~Krystyn~ said...

Ha- Great list!! I had never heard of any of those days!! I love Goof Off day...that should be every day in my opinion. :-)

Susie said...

I love stuff like this! I must remember to celebrate some of these. Not #1, though. ;)

My TT is up if you'd like to stop by.

Ardice said...

I thought everyday was National Relaxation Day *grin* I like the last one, cool to make up your own holiday, huh?

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day. Be Well...

Lisa said...

Happy T13. I love this. I will have to now be celebrating a few more holidays. Especially the Wiggle My Toes, and the Be Late for something. For once, everyone will be with me. lol Have a great one and thanks for sharing.

Knitting Maniac said...

BWAH! I'm ALL for July 14th ... but not for myself, mind you!

Amy The Black said...

Wonder why Hallmark hasn't caught on to these.

Great Day said...

That's quite a list, I especially like goof off day. The only problem is that's what I do every day!

glimpsing gal said...

Scone said...

My anniversary = Total Relaxation? Yeah! Now if I just had some sand to wiggle my toes in....

My first car was a big ol' white tank called the Millenium Falcon. The last two have been called (courtesy of my husband) the Batmobile and the Invisible Jet.

Karen said...

Um, Carmen! You forgot my birthday! It's a national holiday next month, August 24th! Oh, and it's a Thursday, so, you know my TT will be all about ME!!! :)
Thanks for visiting my TT!

Susan said...

I really don't have much time to get into shape for Nude Day, do I? I might have to skip celebrating that one this year!

I remember asking my dad when I was little how come parents and grandparents got their own special day, and why didn't kids? He replied "EVERY day is kids' day, give me a break!"

Lynn said...

I think it must always be September 5th here;-) I've never gotten into naming my car either. Love October 22nd! On my calendar that I bought from some artist's in Maine you could add: July 15th - Be a Dork Day, July 16th - Cow Appreciation Day, and July 23rd - Hot Enough For Ya Day....and for those Pirate fans, Sept. 19th is Talk Like a Pirate Day! Great list. Where did you find them?

kontan said...

I'll have to remember these!

Summer Girl said...

I'm SO glad I know that now! I now have to get a later than usual pedi for October! :)

Summer Girl said...

I've been busy looking at all the TT's so I especially liked the Sept. 5th "Be Late for Something Day."

Jenelle said...

Wow, those are great. I love how Mother in Law Day and Nut Day are on the same day. LOL That is SO accuratae. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Great T13. I am going to have to bookmark this entry so I can remember the dates.

Now these are my kinds of holidays. Too bad there isn't a weeks worth of national sleep days. That is cute that your birthday is the same as Winnie the Pooh Day! :)

The Red Queen said...

Master Enigma said...

Hey there. I had no idea about july 14th!

How do you plan on celebrating? Should we all get together for that holiday or what?

Irish Church Lady :) said...

I can't wait for National Pi day. I'm a math grad.

angelsarentfree said...

I vote we move National Relaxation Day up a month and a day.

twiga92 said...

That is funny! So tomorrow is National Nude Day. Hmmm..

Shash said...

I've never been to a TT with so many comments... wow!

Captain Kangaroo day???
Hmmm.... happy T13!

Curvey said...

HI Carmen, thanks for dropping in and leaving a comment! I thought i would check your blog out as well, love it! I will be a regular visitor!

Happy0303 said...

I couldn't find you email so I thought I'd leave this in comments.

It's really hard to say in regards to visiting Kilauea. If you really want to, you should go. But keep in mind that certain areas are probably roped off for saftey so you won't be able to get too close. Depending on which way the lava is flowing at the time, you may not get to see much. Plus the sulfer smell is YUCK! It'll be kind of cool to go home and tell everyone that you've been there but you probably won't see much. Let me know if you need any more info.

KarenW said...

National Pi day? I guess there's a day for everyone!

Anonymous said...

Happy Dorothy's Not Homeless day!

Zeus said...

My human pet actually did name her car...a '98 Plymouth Neon named Kit. (If you ask me, it so doesn't deserve that name!)

Also, every year on March 14, the math teachers at one of the local schools here wear Pi Day t-shirts with a big pi sign on the front and then the number written all over the back. It's pretty fun! They design a new t-shirt every year according to the human pet.

EmilyRoseJewel said...

Sorry to be so late, but I made it anyhow! Those are some interesting days! Man, I missed #1! I think my husband would agree with mother-in-law/nut day. My holiday would be National Sleep In and Eat Chocolate day. I am late to almost everything so nearly every day is be late day for me. Having an 11 mos. old makes it hard to be on time. Thanks for visiting my list!
