Motorist Consideration Monday, Pots de Creme Day, more

August 27th, 2012, is Just Because Day, Motorist Consideration Monday, The Duchess Who Wasn't Day, Feast of St. Monica, Independence Day (Moldova), Banana Lover's Day, and National Pots de Creme Day.

Just Because Day is a holiday to celebrate any way you choose, just because! Enjoy your freedom, just because.

Just for today, let someone merge into your lane rather than speeding up. Use your turn signals. Maintain a proper following distance. Keep your horn and your gestures to yourself. You've successfully followed the spirit of Motorist Consideration Monday! Was that so hard? How about doing the same again tomorrow?

The Duchess Who Wasn't Day is a tribute to novelist Margaret Wolfe Hungerford, who sometimes wrote under the pseudonym "The Duchess." To celebrate, say aloud this famous quote from The Duchess' novel, Molly Bawn: "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."

The Feast of St. Monica celebrates the patron saint of abuse victims, alcoholics, alcoholism, difficult marriages, dissappointing children, homemakers, housewives, married women, mothers, victims of adultery, victims of unfaithfulness, victims of verbal abuse, widows, and wives.

Moldova observes Independence Day, celebrating independence from the Soviet Union, on August 27th.

Celebrate the banana, the world's most popular fruit, on Banana Lover's Day. You'll love the flavor; your body will love the fiber and potassium.

National Pots de Creme Day celebrates a fabulous French custard. Interestingly, pots de creme also refers to the lidded pots in which the custard is often served.
