Aye, Matey! Oh Wait. That Pirate Celebration Was So Yesterday.

Yesterday was International Talk Like A Pirate Day. Seriously, Matey. I’m not just barking up your barnacles. A real, bona-fide holiday. And dear Velva was celebrating with a wonderful drink recipe called The Salty Dog, the day before Talk Like A Pirate Day. I think she’s just a frustrated pirate wench, starting the celebration a wee bit early.

According to this site it was also Wife Appreciation Day. But when I researched it, another site said Wife Appreciation Day fell on September 15th this year. And yet another site suggests that it is always celebrated on the third Saturday of September. That would have been the 18th this year. Always celebrated? I haven’t heard a thing from my husband yet. Although he would argue, with so much disagreement on when this holiday falls, it must mean that every day is Wife Appreciation Day.

I’m still waiting for that to happen, too.

So by now, I’ll bet you’re wondering what we’re celebrating today, aren’t you?

National Women Road Warriors Day. To celebrate women who travel for work and still manage to run a sane household. Like my dear friend at The Absence of Alternatives, for example.


If that’s not enough to celebrate.

It is also National Punch Day. Maybe Velva or The Kitchen Witch could whip up a snazzy punch recipe for us?

Or do they mean punch? As in punch in the face? Well. I don’t hang with that crowd. So I have nowhere else to send you if you want to celebrate that way. My mom told me to stay away from the likes of you. And I listened.

It’s a pretty busy week if you’re looking for a reason to celebrate.

On Tuesday we have World Alzheimer’s Day.

On Wednesday it is Hobbit Day.

On Thursday it’s Dogs In Politics Day.

(I’m starting to feel a bit like the hungry caterpillar right about now.)

And on Friday, (oh – how appropriate) punctuating the end of a perfectly busy week is…

wait for it….

wait for it….

National Punctuation Day!

What will you celebrate this week?
