Daily Holidays - April 24

National Pigs-In-A-Blanket Day Pig In A Blanket Day encourages the consumption of ‘pigs in blankets’ – small pork sausages (or chipolatas) wrapped in bacon or pastry, and cooked until crispy. Chinese and eastern varieties more closely resemble mini sausage rolls.

For an alternative approach to celebrating Pig In A Blanket Day, you might consider wrapping your farm animals in layers of protective fabric – whichever you prefer. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/pig-in-a-blanket-day/

Hairball Awareness Day is a time to consider the grooming challenges of our purr-fectly aristocratic pets. Being beautiful and regal comes naturally to felines, but lots of personal grooming is required to maintain that exquisite superior look. Newborn kittens are groomed within inches of their lives by enthusiastic mother cats, and personal hygiene becomes an ingrained part of the cat’s daily routine ranking above everything except food. Ferocious grooming causes ingestion of fur, and sooner or later, in a most unbecoming way, the haughty, dignified feline will hack up a hairball.

Hairball Awareness Day is an invitation to be aware and to practice preventative measures to help kitty through this nasty process. Practice regular grooming with a pet brush to reduce the amount of ingested fur, and offer a vet-recommended diet for hairball prevention. Be aware that occasional hairballs are to be expected, but frequent hairballs could indicate a problem. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/hairball-awareness-day/

Teach Your Children to Save Day is an educational program that was established by the American Bankers Association (ABA), with the aim of encouraging kids to develop a good savings habit as early as possible in their financial life. This is done through banking volunteers giving presentations to school kids to teach them specifically about saving money, but also about other financial matters such as spending, donating and investing. Volunteers can find out how to get involved through the ABA, with the association having teaching materials available that can be used as a starting point for preparing a fun and interesting talk.

Banks are encouraged to contact schools in their area about giving a presentation as part of their local community efforts and while a specific date is publicized each year for the day, the lectures can be done at any time throughout the year. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/teach-your-children-to-save-day/

4. Every day is hairball awareness day.

Especially when getting out of bed, and setting that first foot on the floor.
