Daily Holidays - February 17

National Cabbage Day From the French caboche, meaning “head”, cabbage comes in a variety of forms. The cabbage family is quite varied and includes Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, kohlrabi and kale. Cabbage is an ancient food with origins in Asia Minor (Turkey today) and eastern Mediterranean. http://www.nationaldaycalendar.com/national-cabbage-day-february-17/

Random Acts of Kindness Day It is a favorite day to many, as people everywhere are enjoying doing these acts of kindness. Not only is it special for the receiver, it also feels good as the doer! http://www.nationaldaycalendar.com/national-random-acts-of-kindness-day-february-17/

My Way Day The day where you are encouraged to do whatever you want, however you want. Do you fancy watching every Bond film in a row wearing a onesie and eating chocolate? Go ahead. How about being a bit ore adventurous and begin to write that novel you were always thinking about? https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/my-way-day/

World Human Spirit Day World Human Spirit Day is a celebration of the fact that what we know about our own world is limited and superficial. It is a day to wonder at our achievements on this planet as humans, and to contemplate the endless possibilities we have as spirits. A day to search within for contentedness and to embrace the fact that we do not have all the answers and that may be for the best. A day to give a higher power thanks for what we have and what we don’t have, for making us who we are and for giving us the ability to touch others. This day is a celebration of continuity, of hope, of awareness, an occasion for us all to connect spiritually, to gaze at the universe beyond our worldly bodies. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/world-human-spirit-day/

5. Reminds me of an old, old Peanuts...

Lucy is talking about how at Christmas we should be kind, generous, and understanding, and Charlie asks why it shouldn't be like that every day. To which Lucy replies, "What are you, a fanatic?"

4. The time has come, the Walrus said


"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings."

(Lewis Carroll)
