Festival of Sleep Day, Write to Congress Day, more

January 3rd, 2014, is Festival of Sleep Day, Humiliation Day, J.R.R. Tolkein Day, Memento Mori Day, Write to Congress Day, Drinking Straw Day, and Chocolate Covered Cherry Day.

Festival of Sleep Day is a time to hit the "sleep" button and grab an extra few minutes of shut-eye. Take a nap if you can! Revel in the relaxation.... ZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz..........

Humiliation Day could be a time to bestow humiliation, or a time to reduce humiliation to those around you. I prefer the latter. Humiliation is next to bullying.

J.R.R. Tolkein Day honors the author of The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and many other well-known works. Celebrate, My Precious!

Memento Mori Day comes from the Latin, "Remember Your Mortality." This holiday has its roots in ancient Rome. Work on that bucket list, okay?

U.S. citizens, today is the day to stand up and be heard! Or, rather, to sit down at your keyboard. Bottom line, today is Write to Congress Day. Let your elected officials know how you feel about the issues of the day - the U.S. healthcare reform, known as ObamaCare, for example.

The first drinking straw patent was received on this date in 1888, by Martin C. Stone. What self-respecting fast-food place or family restaurant doesn't offer straws? And therefore, we shall celebrate Drinking Straw Day with one giant slurp!

Two of my favorite flavors, together in one fabulous delight! Today is Chocolate Covered Cherry Day.
