  • Lazy Day * August 10th

    Posted Under: General Area, Parks & Recreation, In My Neighborhood  |  August 10, 2011 6:07 AM  |  589 views  |  1 comment

    Lazy Day is your chance to goof off, and definitely not work. And, it definitely comes at a good time. Hot, muggy weather makes it easy to kick back and be lazy for a day. If summer chores are not done by now, they can just wait one more day. It is best spent on a hammock, along with your favorite summer beverage.

    Whoever said "There's no lazy days...just lazy people." Well, we respectfully disagree. Today is proof positive. It is indeed a Lazy Day. And, we consider that a good thing.

    If you enjoy the intent of today, you will also look forward to Relaxation Day. It is coming up soon.

    The Origin of Lazy Day:

    Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. The creators probably had good intention to document this special day. But, they probably found themselves caught up in the true spirit and meaning of this day.

  • Book Lovers Day * August 9th and/or first Saturday in November

    Posted Under: General Area, Parks & Recreation, In My Neighborhood  |  August 9, 2011 6:21 AM  |  468 views  |  No comments

    Book Lovers Day encourages you to find a place in the shade to relax with a good book.

    Book reading is a great hobby. It's an important one, too. Employers look for it on resumes. Reading is educational, informative, and relaxing. It makes us both smarter, and happier people.

    Book Lovers Day is a great day to celebrate. Just grab an interesting book, find a quiet, cozy place, and crack open the cover. Celebrating Book Lovers Day in August is pleasurable on the deck, under a shady tree, poolside, or in a cozy hammock. If you fall asleep while reading, that's okay. It's all part of the relaxing benefits of being a book lover.  

    The Origin of Book Lovers Day:

    Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.

    There is some disagreement over when this day is celebrated. The vast majority of sites list it on August 9th. A smaller number of sites have it recorded on the first Saturday in November.  If you are a true book lover, you will enjoy celebrating it on both days.

    Localized organizations and groups have declared "Book Lover" days on various other dates.

  • Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day * August 8th

    Posted Under: General Area, Parks & Recreation, In My Neighborhood  |  August 8, 2011 5:58 AM  |  447 views  |  No comments

    Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day . Now that's nasty! But hey, what are you going to do with an endless supply of zucchini fruit?

    Experienced gardener's know that Zucchini is one of the most prolific plants in all of the gardening world. A single plant produces a seemingly endless supply of Zucchini. A small row of zucchini has the potential to end world hunger.

    By the time August arrives, gardeners are reaping far more zucchini than they can possibly use. They use it daily in an untold number of recipes, from soups and stews, to breads and dips. Still, the fruit matures on the vine faster than anyone can even pick it. Zucchini growers become desperate, as they try to give zucchini away to family, friends and everyone they encounter. By August, even non-gardeners have had enough. Everyone avoids you, with your arms laden with giveaway fruit.

    Desperate times calls for desperate measure. It's time to sneak over, under the cover of darkness, to your neighbors porch, and unload some zucchini. Today is that day. This may solve your problem for today. But, what will you do with the harvest tomorrow!?!

    Origin of Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day :

    Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. However, as a gardener, this author readily understands why someone proclaimed a day in August to creatively distribute the bountiful Zucchini harvest.

  • National Lighthouse Day * Always August 7th

    Posted Under: General Area, Parks & Recreation, In My Neighborhood  |  August 7, 2011 6:20 AM  |  456 views  |  No comments

    National Lighthouse Day honors and commemorates a beacon of light that symbolizes safety and security for boats at sea.

    On August 7, 1789, through an Act of Congress, the Federal Government took over responsibility for building and operating our nation's lighthouses. The government recognized the importance to ships at sea to find safe harbor during fog and storms. Over the years, lighthouses have saved many ships, and an untold  number of lives.

    Throughout maritime history, Lighthouses have shined their powerful, sweeping lights through the fog and storms, allowing ships of all kinds to find their way back to port during inclement weather. With the advent of radar and GPS technology, lighthouses have taken a back seat in guiding ships to port. However, they remain the universal symbol of safe harbor to ships and communities that rely upon the sea for their livelihood.

    There are numerous local and national lighthouse preservation societies and lighthouse organizations. They serve to preserve and promote lighthouses, and their historical significance to communities, and to the nation.

    Enjoy National Lighthouse Day by visiting a lighthouse, or learning more about your local lighthouse preservation society. Or, read a book about lighthouses.

    Origin of National Lighthouse Day:

    On this day in 1789, the U.S. Congress enacted legislation allowing the federal government control over the creation and maintenance of lighthouses.  This special day evolved out of this event, and in recent years, through efforts to preserve lighthouses as a important historical symbol in America.

  • Chinese Valentine Day / Daughter's Festival * 7th day of 7th Lunar month: August 6, 2011; August 23, 2012; August 13, 2013, Aug

    Posted Under: General Area, Parks & Recreation, In My Neighborhood  |  August 6, 2011 6:38 AM  |  478 views  |  No comments

    Celebrate love ....Chinese style. Today is Chinese Valentine Day. It is also known as the Daughter's Festival and several other names (see below). It is celebrated on the seventh day of the seventh month of the lunar calendar.

    This holiday is one of love. Its romantic (and lovely) that this holiday evolved from an ancient love story from Chinese folklore. As a result of being handed down from generation to generation over thousands of years, there are several versions of the story.

    Here is one of the the most popular versions of the story:

    The Goddess of Heaven (also known as the Queen of Heaven) had seven beautiful, young daughters. The seven daughters came down to earth. They decided to bathe in a pristine river, leaving their clothes on the shore. Along came a cow herder (the herd were actually ox) named "Niu Lang".  He took their clothes to see what they would do. The daughters decided that the youngest, and most beautiful,  named Zhi Nü should go out of the water and recover their clothes. Because Niu Lang saw her naked, they had to get married. They fell madly in love, and shared several years of marital bliss.

    Finally, her mother became irritated by her absence from Heaven, and ordered her to return. Seeing how much Zhi Nü missed her husband, the Jade Emperor of Heaven brought the couple back together. Ultimately, Zhi Nü was allowed to visit her husband, Niu Lang just once a year. The annual reunion occurs on the 7th day of the 7th month of the Lunar Calendar.
