This Week In Ridiculous Holidays: July 1st – July 6th

Who’s pumped for the 4th of July? Me! Who has to work on Friday like a big ol’ sucker? Also me! But that’s ok – they’ll be no traffic and I’ll likely work for like 3 hours, go home, and still get paid for the whole day. And best of all – there’ll be no line at Starbucks. But there are some other things to celebrate this week, so let’s get to it.

Monday, July 1st

National Postal Worker Day

I love my mailman – he puts the mail between the front doors when it’s yucky out so I don’t have to go outside. He’s the MVP.

National U.S. Postage Stamp Day

Seems like we could have spread these two out, doesn’t it?

National Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day

Honestly, I tend to stick with the old-school flavors. I’m boring.

National Gingersnap Day

OMG I bought gingersnaps to go in my lunch last week and I forgot how much I liked them.

Tuesday, July 2nd

National Anisette Day

Per Google, “Anisette, or Anis, is an anise-flavored liqueur that is consumed in most Mediterranean countries, mainly in Spain, Italy, Portugal, Turkey, Greece, Lebanon, Cyprus, Israel, and France. It is colorless, and because it contains sugar, is sweeter than dry anise flavoured spirits.” I could be down.

Wednesday, July 3rd

National Fried Clam Day

Allergies, man.

National Eat Your Beans Day

Green beans and jelly beans – yes. All other beans – no.

National Chocolate Wafer Day

Eh, I’d rather just have chocolate.

Thursday, July 4th

Independence Day

Big 4th of July column coming on Wednesday.

National Barbecued Spareribs Day

Boneless? Yes. I have a weird thing about eating food off bones.

National Caesar Salad Day

My favorite kind of salad! But I don’t really think it goes with a 4th of July BBQ.

Friday, July 5th

National Apple Turnover Day


National Graham Cracker Day

“The graham cracker was inspired by the preaching of Sylvester Graham, who was a part of and strongly influenced by the 19th-century temperance movement; Graham believed that a vegetarian diet anchored by home-made whole grain bread, made from wheat coarsely ground at home, as part of a lifestyle that involved minimizing pleasure and stimulation of all kinds, was how God intended people to live and that following this natural law would keep people healthy.” I learned that from HQ Trivia last week. Who said you can’t learn things playing games.

National Hawaii Day

I’ve never been to Hawaii and I’m sort of “meh” on it. Thoughts?

National Bikini Day

Well, that makes sense.

Saturday, July 6th

National Hand Roll Day


National Fried Chicken Day

Please see above for how I feel about food on bones.

Hop-a-Park Day

Like, go to a bunch of different parks? Why can’t I just go to one park?

Sunday, July 7th

National Dive Bar Day

Nothing is more fun than a good dive bar.

National Father Daughter Take a Walk Day

What I wouldn’t give to take a walk with my dad.

National Strawberry Sundae Day

You know, sometimes strawberry ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream just hits the spot.

National Macaroni Day

…and cheese?
