Another Day to Celebrate! ~~ Dec 15

Hello people! Well I didn’t get blown away by the winds yesterday, but I bet there are a lot of peoples roofs without some shingles. The wind went on until late last night, today is not quite so bad and we are well above freezing. I get so thankful for the little things in the winter.

Today is another day to celebrate. Only 10 more days till Christmas too! I got my very first Christmas card yesterday with a handmade ornament inside. It’s special for a couple of reasons. One, it was made by a two-year old girl and it’s my first new ornament in our new home. Well, it’s our first ornament period as we lost all our Christmas stuff when we moved and I had nothing. Now I have something. Feels good. Thank you Jazzy!

Now on with todays reasons for celebration!


Bill of Rights Day ~~  On March 4, 1789, the Constitution of the United States of America was ratified by the (former)13 colonies, and went into effect. States and individuals were concerned that the Constitution did not properly cover and protect a number of rights of individuals. The Constitution was signed by the original 13 states with the requirement, or understanding, that a Bill of Rights would be created, amending the new U.S. Constitution. On September 25, 1789, the First Congress of the United States proposed to the state legislatures 12 amendments to the Constitution. 10 of these amendments were added to the Constitution on December 15, 1791. So be thankful and celebrate the wisdom of people way back when  and spend a few minutes reflecting upon the freedoms that you enjoy. These freedoms do not exist in many countries of the world. Celebrate!

National Lemon Cupcake Day ~~ A day set aside for eating and presenting lemon cupcakes to each other. Now I love anything made with lemons and this would be especially tasty I’m thinking. And while they may not be standard Christmas fare, lemon cupcakes will be a hit item at your annual gathering. While I wasn’t able to find the origin of this holiday I thought it was a fun one. After all the holiday sugary treats, maybe a little sour on your taste buds wouldn’t hurt. Cleanse the palate so to speak. So go ahead and bake up a bunch of lemon cupcakes and share! Celebrate!

Cat Herders Day ~~ Yes, you read it right. Now me, I’m not sure I’d want to try to herd a bunch of cats. I have two and there is no way I’m going to herd those two much less any more. Cats have minds of their own and they might decide to stampede! Ha-ha! According to the originators of this particular holiday (  If you can say that your job, or even your life, is like trying to herd cats, then this day is for you, with our sympathy. And have you seen the Superbowl Cat herding commercial? Try this link, it’s cute! So if you’re having a bad day, or a bad week, this one is for you! Celebrate!

Todays list is short but has a bit of everything, serious, silly, and yummy. If you could have a holiday what would you call it? And when would it be?

Until tomorrow then, have a wonderful day and celebrate!
