Daily Holidays - September 26

Johnny Appleseed Day Johnny Appleseed was a famous American figure who is best known for his planting of apple trees throughout Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. He was a prominent conservationist, business man, and religious figure, and well known and liked for his kindness and generosity. Johnny Appleseed Day commemorates his birth, September 26, 1774. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/johnny-appleseed-day/

Love Note Day Love Note Day is a day to tell someone you love them, by writing a message of love in the form of a note. Though the traditional way of doing this is in handwritten form, eCards are another way of sending out a love message on this particular day. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/love-note-day/

Lumberjack Day Monty Python famously sang the Lumberjack Song and a rendition of this would be appropriate for Lumberjack Day. The history of this celebration dates back to the mid-2000s when Marianne Ways and Colleen AF Venable decided it was time to honor this venerable profession. Venable herself worked as a lumberjack although she has admitted that the original idea for the day was conceived as an excuse to go out and eat pancakes and waffles with friends. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/lumberjack-day/
