Celebrate Good Times

I think the important thing now is to have a celebration…

Michael D. Higgins

We’re in the midst of one of the busiest times of the year for holidays and celebrations. It can sometimes seem as though the rest of the year is just marking time until December comes around again. But did you know that every month in the year has sometime significant to celebrate?

Product DetailsJanuary is the traditional time to pay more attention to our physical health, when we head back to the gym to give our bodies a workout. In the midst of flexing our muscles, we can also boost our brain power. January is also Brain Teasers Month, an opportunity to sharpen our wits and overcome the brain freeze that may occur in winter.

Product DetailsFebruary is the shortest month of the year, but it’s filled with things to commemorate. It’s the time to show our feathered friends some love during bird feeding month, eat a hot breakfast or do some baking with the family. You can also to check out all the great stuff libraries have to offer since it’s Library Lovers Month.

According to the calendar, spring begins in March, and it’s also Craft Month, Women’s History Month and Umbrella Month. An entire month dedicated to umbrellas? Who knew?!

Product DetailsApril is the time to delight in poetry, jazz and gardens, while May is the month to barbecue, get caught reading, and take a photo.

Reasons to rejoice in June include candy, camping and the great outdoors, all good things that deserve more attention. Especially candy.

Product DetailsIn this part of the country, the warm weather that occurs in July and August is a huge reason for celebration in and of itself. However, if you want to take things to the next level, you can combine two of the things that also make July special; ice cream and picnics – two of my personal favourites any month of the year. August is Golf Month, so get out on the green and make merry.

September means back to school, plus the chance to reflect on pianos and chickens. I like to spend September contemplating the possible connections between the two…

Product DetailsPizza is the focus in October, while November is Vegan Month. As I said before, December is loaded with holidays and celebrations, including the fact that it’s Tie Month.

This list is far from complete, and I encourage you to create your own calendar of events. Check out the website Days of the Year for more weird and wonderful days to celebrate, or create your own. It’s a great way to make every month the most wonderful time of the year!
