Oddities of the Day, Week, Month for July

Who knew? Today, July 7th is Bonza Bottler Day! We have twelve of those a year…apparently it gives good reason to go out and party with your family and friends. It’s when the day of the month is the same as the month number (today is 07-07). And there’s even a website for this day:  Bonza Bottler Day Website.

Celebrations should be on-going today, this week, and this month. According to my reliable sources, it is:

 For the Month, among many others:

  • Air-conditioning Appreciation Days (through 8/15)
  • Cell Phone Courtesy Month (as if that will happen)
  • Dog Days (more or less coincides with Air-Conditioning Appreciation, through 8/11)
  • National Doghouse Repairs Month (is that for man or beast?)
  • National Grilling Month (somebody please find me another 2-piece Chimenaya)
  • National Ice Cream Month (that would be Mint Chocolate Chunk – see today’s holiday below)
  • National Horseradish Month  (every month is as far as I’m concerned)
  • National Hot Dog Month (personal favorite would be “Nathan’s”)
  • National Share a Sunset With Your Lover Month (it’s too damn hot…in more ways than one)
  • National Wheelchair Beautification Month (Sure…OK. Grease the bearing too)
  • Sandwich Generation Month (making one after another)
  • Social Wellness Month (leave me alone!)
  • Tour de France Month (Go Lance!)
  • Women’s Motorcycle Month (Harley guys switch places with your B_ _ _ _)

For the week:

  • National Unassisted Homebirth Week (I’m not gonna help out with that one)
  • Freedom Week (makes perfect sense given the celebrated holiday)
  • Be Nice To New Jersey Week (why would we do that?)
  • Nude Recreation Week (hmmmmm)

For the Day (7/7/09):

  • National Fist Bump Day (some have this on 5/27 and 6/3 – just do it)
  • Father-Daughter Take A Walk Together Day (maybe next year – she’s in Ecuador, I’m in Dallas)
  • Tell the Truth Day (“I swear I didn’t do it”)
  • Chocolate Day (my personal favorite)

And please don’t let these slip your mind, among many others:

  • Second Half of the Year Day (7/1)
  • Compliment Your Mirror Day (7/3 – doesn’t help in my case)
  • Dad’s Birth Day (7/6 – it’s never too late to send him a card or gift)
  • Don’t Step on a Bee Day (7/10)
  • Embrace Your Geekness Day (7/13)
  • Gruntled Workers Day (7/13)
  • Gummi Worm Day (7/15)
  • National Hot Dog Day (7/18)
  • Toss Away the “Could Haves” and “Should Haves” Day (7/18)
  • National Ice Cream Day (7/19)
  • National Lollipop Day (7/20)
  • Legal Drinking Age Day (7/21)
  • OFB TR’s Birth Day (7/22 – dare I mention his age?)
  • Health, Happiness With Hypnosis Day (coincidentally the same as OFB TR’s birthday)
  • Spooners Day (also coincidentally the same as OFB TR’s birthday)
  • Hot Enough For Ya Day (7/23 – coincidentally the day after Spooners Day)
  • National Drive-Thru Day (7/24 – Sonic or Varsity, here we come)
  • Tell An Old Joke Day (7/24 – every day for me)
  • Cow Appreciation Day (7/25 – during National Grilling Month?)
  • Walk on Stilts Day (7/27 – that’s a tall order)
  • National Milk Chocolate Day (everyday…7/28)
  • Cheesecake Day (7/30)
  • Father-In-Law Day (7/30 – I will be one on the 26th so that works out well)
