National Bowling Day

It’s National Bowling Day here in the United States. The last time I went bowling was about 2 years ago to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We spent the night eating pizza, singing to the songs playing, and of course bowling.

Do you like to bowl?

Forgiveness Day

Forgiveness should be done throughout the whole year, but celebrating today’s holiday is a good way to start fresh. It’s important to forgive others and even sometimes yourself for past mistakes. “The most important thing that I learned in growing up is that forgiveness is something that, when you do it, you free yourself to move on.” – Tyler Perry

National Eat Your Vegetables Day

Today is National Eat Your Vegetables Day in the United States. 🥒🍅🥕🥔🍆

Here are some fun facts about vegetables:

  • Tomatoes are very high in the carotenoid Lycopene; eating foods with carotenoids can lower your risk of cancer
  • My favorite vegetable is Corn 🌽
  • California produces almost all of the broccoli sold in the US
  • A ruling by the Supreme Court in 1893 made the tomato a vegetable
  • Potatoes first appeared in Europe in 1586 and made it to North America in 1719
  • Eating carrots can help improve eye health

What’s your favorite vegetable?

P.S. Happy Fathers Day.

National Burrito Day

Today is National Burrito Day! I’ve actually never had one. Tacos are great though.

National Spaghetti Day

Today is National Spaghetti Day! In 2000, 1.3 million pounds of spaghetti were sold in American grocery stores. If all of those packages were lined up they would circle the Earth nine times!*
