At our house, we love holidays! We celebrate each one with different family traditions, adding in a few surprises along the way. My youngest, a third-grader, marks each one on his calendar and counts down the days.
Some are national holidays – those days that require an act of Congress to make official. These are the days federal employees have the day off. They include New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, President’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Other holidays our family celebrates are Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day. My children like April Fool’s Day, but since the time they rigged the kitchen sink so water would spray all over me, it hasn’t been one of my favorites.
Did you know every day is a holiday? There’s a reason to celebrate each day of the year! Some are a little more well-known, like Groundhog Day, Flag Day, and Halloween. But by doing a little research on the internet, you can find a reason to celebrate every day. So what can you look forward to this month? Here are some possibilities:
March 16 is Everything You Do is Right Day.
March 23 is National Chip and Dip Day.
March 25 is Waffle Day.
March 28 is Something on a Stick Day.
And the list goes on and on. And on. And on!

With so many holidays, there’s always a reason to celebrate. Just don’t tell my son!
