Daily Holidays - April 22

Earth Day Celebrate and protect our natural environment by taking part in Earth Day. Join with community groups to explore environmental and ecological issues on local and international scales, and work towards making a difference to our habitat.

If you’re really committed, why not learn the words to the Earth Day anthem (sung to the tune of ‘Ode to Joy’):

Joyful joyful we adore our Earth in all its wonderment
Simple gifts of nature that all join into a paradise
Now we must resolve to protect her
Show her our love through out all time
With our gentle hand and touch
We make our home a newborn world
Now we must resolve to protect her
Show her our love through out all time
With our gentle hand and touch
We make our home a newborn world

National Jelly Bean Day Who doesn’t love a jelly bean? From good old cherry or buttered popcorn to more adventurous flavours like latte and chili mango?

Once mainly associated with Easter and Halloween holidays jelly beans are now an everyday treat and there’s no better time to celebrate them than Jelly Bean Day.

No-one knows for sure how, when or why Jelly Bean Day began and the origins of the beans themselves are equally mysterious; they are thought to have been developed from Turkish Delight and have certainly been popular since the mid-19th century or earlier.

You can enjoy Jelly Bean Day by using the beans in craft activities with your kids or staging your own ‘how many beans in the jar’ contest. Whatever you do, don’t forget that the tastiest way to celebrate Jelly Bean Day is by eating lots of jelly beans! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/jelly-bean-day/

Administrative Professionals Day Where would we be without the secretaries of the world? Spare a thought to all of the paperwork that would never be done, the phone calls that would never be taken and the secretary jokes that would never have been invented and raise a glass to Administrative Professionals Day, the day when administrative professionals the world over can be celebrated in just one day for all the hard work they do all year!

First originated in 1952, Administrative Professionals Day is now observed in a number of countries worldwide and is one of the most celebrated workplace holidays, especially amongst support staff. Treat your Administrative Professionals to traditional gifts such as flowers, chocolates or gift cards, or, if you are feeling particularly appreciated, perhaps an annual bonus or extra time off. One thing is for sure, if the boss forgets this holiday it’ll be at his peril! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/administrative-professionals-day/
