Welcome to the short Labor Day week. Of course, because it’s a short week, it will feel like the longest week ever, but that’s ok, because we can eat all the cheese pizza and drink all the beer we want this week.
Tuesday, September 3
National Welsh Rarebit Day
“Welsh rarebit or Welsh rabbit is a traditional Welsh dish made with a savoury sauce of melted cheese and various other ingredients and served hot, after being poured over slices of toasted bread or served in a chafing dish like a fondue.” Ok, as long as we aren’t eating Bugs Bunny, I’m in.
U.S. Bowling League Day
I never was good at bowling.
National Another Look Unlimited Day
Apparently, this is a date to clean out your house and repurpose or donate items you no longer need. I don’t know how you are supposed to infer that from the name, but there it is.
Wednesday, September 4
National Wildlife Day
Given that half the world is on fire, our wildlife is certainly in danger. Make a donation to WWF here.
National Newspaper Carrier Day
Anyone still get the paper delivered? Anyone?
National Macadamia Nut Day
I literally think I’ve only eating these in cookies. Not that I’m complaining.

Sometimes a plain ol’ cheese pizza hits the spot.

National Coffee Ice Cream Day
I gotta say, not my fav flav.

Can I read a book at work? That would be great.
National Lazy Mom’s Day
I feel like this should be a Sunday?
National Food Bank Day
1 in 6 American children may not know where their next meal is coming from. That should bug the shit out of you. Find out what you can do at Feeding America.
Saturday, September 7
National Beer Lover’s Day
I’d feel better if this was tomorrow, on the first Sunday of football season.
National Tailgating Day
National New Hampshire Day
Fun fact: New Hampshire adopted the first legal lottery in the twentieth century United States in 1963.
National Acorn Squash Day
Another fun fact: Although considered a winter squash, acorn squash belongs to the same species as all summer squashes.
National Grandma Moses Day
“Anna Mary Robertson Moses, known by her nickname Grandma Moses, was an American folk artist. She began painting in earnest at the age of 78 and is often cited as an example of an individual who successfully began a career in the arts at an advanced age.” Honestly, I thought she made cookies.
National Neither Snow Nor Rain Day
Well, I’d hope there would be no snow in September.
National Salami Day
I’m simply not a fan of deli meat.

But I’m a big fan of dudes with beards.
