Daily Holidays - June 4

National Hug Your Cat Day Hug Your Cat Day is one of those pleasingly straightforward holidays. Quite simply, it is a day in which cat owners everywhere are encouraged to hug their cats. The more dedicated amongst them will not need this encouragement, of course, but it is always good to be reminded of our feline friends. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/hug-your-cat-day/

National Tailors Day Tailors Day is a day where people are encouraged to dress their best and to reach out and thank the person that helps them achieve their high level of sartorial elegance. While off-the-peg clothes may have become commonplace, even among some of the best dressed, the tailor still plays an integral part in ensuring some people look their best, and Tailors Day is the day to thank them. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/tailors-day/


Daily Holidays - June 3

National Donut Day Doughnut Day came to pass, in part, due to the efforts of a doctor in the military in the first World War who sought to brighten the day of the wounded soldiers he worked on. On his first day to the Military Base he purchased 8 dozen doughnuts and gave one to each soldier he worked on. After giving one to Lieutenant General Samuel Geary, who received it with great mirth and appreciation for the doctors work, Samuel decided to start a fund raiser, letting the young doctor, Morgan Pett, to continue to provide doughnuts to his patients. This fundraiser began working together with the Salvation Army who, after a fact-finding mission, deetermined that many needs of the soldiers could be met by creating social centers that would provide all sorts of amenities, including the doughtnuts. The Salvation Army sent 250 volunteers to France to help put these huts together, which soon became a mainstay of military life. One record of a day in the huts recorded up to 300 donuts and 700 cups of coffee being served as part of their service. Due to the majority of the workers being female, the Salvation Army workers started to be known as “Doughnut Dollies.” These huts went a long way to improving the overall life of the soldiers during the war, and has become a tradition that the Salvation Army continues to this day as a fund raiser for this wonderful organization. A great way to celebrate Donut Day is to volunteer to help this amazing organization on the day they’ve held for years in support of our armed forces. Just a few hours of your time, or a donation towards their organization will ensure they continue to be able to do their good work the world round! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/doughnut-day/

Repeat Day Every year on Repeat Day followers of this unusual event seek out activities and experiences they love so much that they want to do them over and over again. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/repeat-day/

Fish & Chip Day Rich, delicious, and flavorful, and utterly utterly satisfying, that’s the best way to describe this treat. There’s something about the tang of salt and the oil stained newspaper that just speaks of a meal so steeped in tradition it only seems appropriate that it comes wrapped in the day’s news. Fish and Chip day commemorates this fundamental meal of the working class, and while its roots may lay on Britannia’s foggy shores, there are few places in the world that this comfort food hasn’t found its way to. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/fish-and-chip-day/

Say Something Nice Day Say Something Nice Day began in Charleston, South Carolina, when the Mayors of North Charleston and Charleston came together with members of the Charleston-Atlantic Presbytery and the South Carolina Baptist Convention to create a day to be kind to the special people in our lives, like our children. It’s also a day to remember and celebrate people, who provide us with a variety of services, such as bus drivers, healthcare workers and teachers. And, it’s a great opportunity to apologize to people that we might have wronged or hurt through our behaviour. The aim of this special day is to fight against unkindness, bullying and the lack of politeness that dominates society today. The creators hope that this one day of pleasantness will grow, until people are nice to each other everyday. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/say-something-nice-day/
