Daily Holidays - February 22

National Margarita Day Tequila, triple sec and lime juice (and ice) are everything you’ll need to celebrate Margarita Day – that and some good friends, a tropical beach (or luxurious urban apartment) and some delectable nibbles. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/margarita-day/

World Thinking Day Thinking Day originated from a desire by Girl Guides / Girl Scouts to dedicate a day to thinking about and appreciating the global spread of these movements. Each year a participating country is selected and its culture and general living conditions pondered on for the day by all guides and scouts. The idea is to create a greater awareness and understanding of different cultures and any global concerns regarding that particular region. It sounds a little like those endless, global conferences attended at great cost by politicians, which rarely show results. The Girl Guides and Scouts Associations, however, do things differently. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/thinking-day/

Cook A Sweet Potato Day As sweet potatoes are one of the most important crops in the world, it only makes sense that Cook a Sweet Potato Day has arisen over the ages. Sweet potatoes are delicious and chock-full of all sorts of vitamins and minerals your body needs to stay healthy, and it’s high time we stopped looking at them as just an addition to our Thanksgiving dinner. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/cook-a-sweet-potato-day/

Be Humble Day Humility may be the most difficult of all the virtues to truly attain. There seems to be a paradox in that claiming to have humility may be an act of pride. Some people might be prideful in their humility… or something like that. Either way, Be Humble Day focuses on humbling yourself. There is no boasting allowed on Be Humble Day. Choosing not to brag about your successes and abilities can prove to be much more difficult than one might anticipate, as the culture surrounding us is often centered on self and the successes achieved by an individual. Throughout the ages philosophers and the average Joe alike have pondered humility and what it means to be truly humble. It is a difficult question to answer and the final answer may never fully present itself. But perhaps the seeking of humility is more important than the achieving. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/be-humble-day/
