While we are still dealing with the lasting effects of Hurricane Harvey, we thought you just might have some time for a little distraction from cleaning up the mess.  In our Internet search, we found interesting, fun, and unusual reasons to celebrate the days of this week.  Hope you like them, too.

Grandparent’s Day, September 10

National Grandparent's Day originated in 1978. Then President Jimmy Carter declared it to be the first Sunday after Labor Day.  It is time to celebrate those special people who are always there with a hug, a kiss, a cookie, or take us somewhere.

Make Your Bed Day, September 11

It's Make Your Bed Day. Many of us seldom, rarely, or never make up our beds in the morning. If that's you, you're in good company. Okay, if company is coming over, mom makes you make your bed. Other than that, you arise each day and leave your sheets and bedding in a crumpled pile, pouring over the side, and onto the floor.

911 Remembrance, September 11

Even while we’re practicing a little escapism, how could we not take a moment to remember attack on the World Trade Centers on September 11, 2001? 

Chocolate Milkshake Day, September 12

Chocoholoics unite!  This is a day to savor and enjoy. The weather may have cooled off. But, our appetite for chocolate, specifically chocolate milkshakes, hasn't cooled off one iota.

Positive Thinking Day, September 13

Today is all about attitude.... a positive attitude. The power of positive thinking is absolutely astounding. Medical research confirms that a positive attitude works wonders at fighting disease and ailments, from the common cold to cancer. People with an "I think I can" attitude, are far more likely to succeed at work, and in accomplishing every goal they set in life.

National Cream Filled Donut Day, September 14

Ready for a sugary, sweet day? The most popular cream filled donuts are chocolate cream and vanilla cream.  Whatever flavor is your favorite, just make sure the day does not go by without having one or more cream filled donuts. 

Felt Hat Day, September 15

Back in the early to mid1900s, hats were popularly worn by both men and women. It was stylish. At that time, felt was a common material for men's hats. With cooler Fall weather approaching, the guys went to the coat closet and dusted off their felt hats , and began to wear them once more.

National Play-Doh Day, September 16

Invented in the mid-1950s, Play-Doh has entertained millions of children, and allowed them to express their creativity, both at home and in the classroom.

The invention was simple. A school teacher wanted a safe modeling clay for her preschoolers. She asked her brother-in-law Joseph McVicker, who worked at a chemical company, to come up with something. The result was simple.... flour, water and food coloring.
