Everyday is a Holiday- Let’s celebrate!


And today it begins- my first blog!

I have chosen for my focus a subject that is near and dear to my heart: holidays! Whether as a parent, an American, a former preschool teacher, or an employee of an online stationery company, celebrating holidays will always be a central feature of my daily life. So here on my blog I will expound upon the numerous joys of celebrating the traditional holidays we honor each year as well as feed my voracious hunger for research, learning, and culture by exploring holidays as yet unknown to me…or possibly even you!

For my inaugural blog post I bring for your celebratory pleasure the obscure national holiday known as:  “Cheese Sacrifice Purchase Day

uh, what?

Yes, it is true, we Americans have a day dedicated to ..uh… sacrificial dairy purchase. Seriously, what can it possibly mean? Perhaps the subject can be enlightened by a bit of poetry:

So, fellow Americans, if you didn’t cop to all that I’ll spell it out for you: today is the day we are meant to go out and buy some cheese that will be “sacrificed” to bait our mousetraps.  Friends, I couldn’t make this stuff up- if this kind of thing continues I truly think CelebrateHoliday is going to be the most awesome blog ever!

Join me tomorrow, July 30th, when we celebrate- ironically enough- National Cheesecake Day! (I smell a conspiracy here… who thinks Dairy Council is toying with us?)
