February 22nd, 2014, is Open that Bottle Night, Single-Tasking Day, World Thinking Day, Be Humble Day, Walking the Dog Day, George Washington's Birthday, Independence Day (Saint Lucia), National Margarita Day, and National Cook a Sweet Potato Day.
The last Saturday in February is Open that Bottle Night. Dust off that bottle of wine or champagne you've been saving for a special occasion, and share it with someone you love. Tomorrow offers no guarantees.
Stop everything and acknowledge the wisdom of Single-Tasking Day. Sometimes we get too distracted with working, having conversations, driving, tweeting, changing channels, web surfing, and so many other things at the same time. Bring some peace and quality control into your life by focusing on one thing at a time.
World Thinking Day celebrates Girl Guides and Girl Scouts across the globe. The theme for 2014 is "Education opens doors for all boys and girls."
Be Humble Day is a day to be modest about your accomplishments. Shine the light on someone else, instead.
In honor of Walking the Dog Day, either walk your canine or learn the famous yo-yo trick:
George Washington's Birthday used to be celebrated on the actual date of his birth, February 22nd. Since 1971, however, the first president of the United States has been honored on Presidents' Day, the third Monday in February.
St. Lucia observes Independence Day on February 22nd.
On National Margarita Day, enjoy a delicous drink that comes in many flavors these days. Just don't forget the tequila. I'll have mine on the rocks, sans salt! Salud!
Today is National Cook a Sweet Potato Day. There's a world of possibilities out there, beyond bathing them in marshmallows or maple syrup.
