I love celebrating unusual holidays ~ actually, I love celebrating any holiday! Life can sometimes be so stressful that taking even five minutes to think about the usual “holidays”, keeps a smile on my face!
Wow! What a fun list! I think my kids would like Pizza Party Day. I might have to talk them into Museum Day. I will have my tiara ready to go!
