A Reason to … Celebrate, Remember, Have Fun! (Nov 25 – Dec 1)

Friday, November 25th: Celebrate today – dine with a view over the water. The water in the sink that is, it’s SINKIE DAY! Annually the day after Thanksgiving, leftovers provide the perfect excuse to enjoy a quick snack or meal over the sink. This day celebrates casual dining at its finest, with fewer dishes to clean up! Thanks www.sinkie.com.

Saturday, November 26th: Let your light shine! It’s the tenth annual INTERNATIONAL AURA AWARENESS DAY. Our aura, our energy body, reflects much about our physical, emotional and psychological health. Seeing it isn’t always easy. Some people can easily see the auras surrounding each of us. There are exercises, for those of us that can’t see them, that help increase our awareness of these beautiful colored energy fields. See http://realityshifters.com/pages/auraday.html for more information. Take some time out today to look at your aura and see what it has to tell you.

Sunday, November 27th: Today is the day. Are you ready? Are you prepared? Are you just on ‘Pins and Needles?’  Good! It’s PINS AND NEEDLES DAY! But, today is not really a day of nervous anticipation. Today commemorates the opening of the 1937 pro-labor Broadway musical, Pins and Needles. Written by Harold Rome, the play was produced by the International Lades Garment Workers’Union. Union members comprised the cast and the play once held the record for longest running play, with 1108 performances. Today, let’s celebrate and give thanks to the laborers keeping us clothed.

Monday, November 28th: Here’s a day to look to the sky. RED PLANET DAY celebrates the fourth planet in our solar system, Mars, the source of many alien movies, jokes and sitcoms. This celebration commemorates the day in 1964 that Spaceship Mariner 4 launched for a 228 day mission to study the mysterious “Red Planet”, Mars. It came within 6,118 miles of Mars on July 14, 1965.

Tuesday, November 29th: “Nose, Nose, jolly red Nose, And what gave you that jolly red Nose? Nutmegs and cinnamon, spices and cloves, And they gave me this jolly red Nose” (The Only True Mother Goose Melodies 1833) November is NATONAL FRAGRANCE MONTH. As the month nears its close, celebrate fragrances, especially the delightful holiday fragrances filling the air and our homes. Cinnamon, orange spice, cloves, pumpkin pie, pine, mulled cider …. What’s your favorite fragrance?

Wednesday, November 30th: Mmmmm…. Mousse … it’s my kind of day.  It’s NATIONAL MOUSSE DAY! No, NOT the mousse for your hair; mousse as in CHOCOLATE Mousse, made with chocolate, egg and cream. Relatively new to theUS, mousse entered our cuisine in the 1960’s. Created inFrance in the mid-1800’s, the French word mousse means “lather” or “foam.” I’ll celebrate today by consuming more than my share of this delectable dessert!

Thursday, December 1st: Jonathan McIntosh and Granny Smith are coming to the party today. No, they’re not friends or relatives. It’s EAT A RED APPLE DAY today. Red Delicious,Rome, Gala, orFuji; they’re just a few of the thousands of apple varieties available. Apples are an excellent natural food. They are low in calories, high in fiber, and have no sodium or cholesterol. They also contain Vitamins A & C, along with a plethora of trace vitamins and minerals. Maybe it’s true what they say, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” I’m up for any party or celebration, especially if it keeps the doctor away!
