Hole in my Bucket Day, Water a Flower Day, Mint Julep Day, more

May 30th, 2012, is  Hole in my Bucket Day, Water a Flower Day, Loomis Day, Indian Arrival Day, World MS Day, National Senior Health and Fitness Day, and National Mint Julep Day.

Hole In My Bucket Day doesn't require a trip to the hardware store. Instead, search your memory banks for a children's song that goes on and on, ending up right where it started. Want lyrics?

Today is Water a Flower Day. Unless it's raining where you are, your flowers need a drink. Oh, and don't forget your indoor beauties.

May 30th is Loomis Day, honoring Mahlon Loomis. He  conducted experiments in the 1800s that helped lead to the wireless technology we enjoy today.

Indian Arrival Day is celebrated in Trinidad and Tobago, as the anniversary of the first indentured servants from India arriving in Trinidad in 1845. The culture of India - including music, food, clothing, and religion - forever changed Trinidad.

World MS Day is observed on the last Wednesday in May. This year, the event is built around "the 1000 Faces of MS."

National Senior Health and Fitness Day is "The Nation's Largest Older Adult Health Promotion Event."

On National Mint Julep Day try this refreshing drink made with bourbon whiskey, water, sugar, and - of course - mint.
