Daily Holidays - July 27

National Scotch Day For countless people around the world, nothing says relaxation after a long hard week like a glass of good whisky. And although drinking in the middle of the week is likely not a good habit to get into, you could probably make an exception just this once, on Scotch Whisky Day, and take the time to appreciate this beloved alcoholic beverage. So are you ready to celebrate? We thought so! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/scotch-whisky-day/

Take Your Houseplant For A Walk Day Proud plant-owners can show off their leafy friends to the neighbourhood when Take Your Houseplant For A Walk Day rolls around. The idea behind this day is to celebrate plants, and to acquaint plants with their immediate environment, which is supposed to be healthy for them. Plant-owners can admire each othersí plants, and exchange stories and tips on plant-care. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/take-your-houseplant-for-a-walk-day/

Walk on Stilts Day If youíve ever been to the circus or a parade, you have without a doubt seen someone walking along high above the crowd on a pair of stilts. To the common man, stilts are the mainstay of theatrical performers, clowns, jugglers, and that odd looking fellow from the Liberal Arts College in their annual parade. What most people donít know is that stilts have a long and august history in many cultures, for reasons varying from ceremonial to purely practical. Walk on Stilts Day is the perfect time to learn about this surprisingly useful tools, and maybe try out a pair for yourself! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/walk-on-stilts-day/

1. Well, I don't drink and I don't have any houseplants, so I guess I'm with stuck walking on stilts!

2. Excellent!

I really wouldn't suggest combining drinking Scotch , walking the house plants while on stilts anyway , just seems like it might lead to some unintended consequences!
