Yep, there’s a day for that!

Unless you’ve been living in a cave, on a mountain, in a land, far, far away, you must have wondered just how many ‘National Awareness Days’ there really are! There are the ones where you shave your head. Others where you shave your moustache. Still others where you shave your… well, you get the idea.

Then there are the ‘wear’ yellow, or pink, or green or rainbow colors days.

The abstain days! The food days, the appreciation days, wellness days and any other days someone is willing to invent.

Did you miss ‘Peanut Butter Lover’s Day’? Sons Day (yes, there’s a Daughters Day as well)? How about Cereal Day and Dentist’s Day? These are just some of the celebration / remembrance / take a moment (or a day to think about – plug in the appropriate cause here) in the first week of March in the American National Day Calendar!

Now add in the ‘National Days’ from the other 194 countries currently in existence (perhaps 193 if Putin has his way) and you can understandably get a little inured / tired/ sick to death of being made ‘aware’ of one more cause!

Of course, some days are seriously important… but National Potato Chip Day just doesn’t cut the mustard (yes, there’s a day for that somewhere, too!)

Off course, some national days are worthy of remembrance!

So, if you really have nothing better to do right now, here’s a list of days you might choose to miss most of this month:
