It’s the first day of April and you know what that means. You’re either bracing yourself for pranks that will be played on you or planning your pranks for others. I try to play at least one April Fool’s joke per year. It just seems the right thing to do, but I don’t spend all day thinking about it.
I found it interesting that other things are celebrated today. Did you know that April 1 is Boomer Bonus Day, a day to celebrate everyone over 50. I didn’t know that one existed. Did you? Today is also National Fun Day and National Fun At Work Day. I like those. I think we should try to have as much fun as possible while living and working.
Today is International Tatting Day. Tatting is a form of needlepoint. Today is St. Stupid Day, which is celebrated with a parade in San Francisco. Today is also Sorry Charlie Day which honors Charlie the Tuna and everyone who has ever been rejected and still bounced back.
Today is Tater Day, a large festival in Kentucky that celebrates sweet potatoes. I love sweet potatoes, so I could really get into Tater Day! Speaking of food, today is also National Sourdough Bread Day.
Finally, today is Reading is Funny Day, a great day to share riddles and funny books with children.
What “day” would you like to celebrate today?
