Book Club Readers: Are you finished with # 6 of Songs in the Key of SolomonNo? That’s okay! It’s a very quick read. Get busy and start reading now!

Some months I don’t even need to comment on the holidays that somehow got onto the calendar. This would be one of those months. Read on to see what I mean, based on holidayinsights.com:

July 1st – Canada Day – Does that mean that Canada has a U.S. Day, eh?

July 2nd – World UFO Day – Remind me to stay away from Area 51 today.

July 3rd – Compliment Your Mirror Day – I never knew my mirror had an inferiority complex.

July 4th – Sidewalk Egg Frying Day – Unless you live in Canada.

July 5th – Work-a-Holics Day – Otherwise known, at my house, as Father’s Day

July 6th – National Fried Chicken Day – Since 7/4’s odd holiday precedes this odd holiday, we have now effectively answered which came first.

July 7th – Chocolate Day – It goes well with your sidewalk egg and fried chicken?

July 8th – Video Games Day – If you have a teen, this is every day.

July 9th – National Sugar Cookie Day – Yay! I always want to decorate Santa cookies in July.

July 10th – Teddy Bear Picnic Day – I don’t usually invite bears to my picnics.

July 11th – World Population Day – Are we supposed to procreate this day????

July 12th – Different Colored Eyes Day – Probably instituted by some woman who was “seeing red” one day and was “green with jealousy” the next day.

July 13th – Embrace Your Geekness Day – So that means The Big Bang Theory is on, right?

July 14th – National Nude Day – I don’t recommend celebrating this holiday at work.

July 15th – Cow Appreciation Day – Not to be confused with Cow Tipping Appreciation Day.

July 16th – Fresh Spinach Day – Remind me to make a date with Popeye.

July 17th – Yellow Pig Day – When you find a yellow pig, let me know.

July 18th – National Caviar Day – Because one can never have enough overpriced fish eggs

July 19th – National Raspberry Cake Day – Only if Pillsbury makes a raspberry cake mix.

July 20th – Ugly Truck Day – That’s every day in Texas.

July 21st – National Junk Food Day – Perhaps this is redundant since we had fried chicken, chocolate, sugar cookies and raspberry cake already?

July 22nd – Ratcatcher’s Day – I will happily celebrate anyone who catches rats.

July 23rd – National Hot Dog Day – Also known as “Maizie after she catches 5 frisbees in a row”.

July 24th – Amelia Earhart Day – We should always celebrate people who get lost.

July 25th – Threading the Needle Day – Only if I can find my reading glasses.

July 26th – Aunt & Uncle Day – I expect presents.

July 27th – Take Your Pants For A Walk Day – Preferably with you in them. I suppose, after National Nude Day, we need this reminder.

July 28th – National Milk Chocolate Day – Not to be confused with July 7th.

July 29th – National Lasagna Day – I always crave a dish that you bake in an oven in July.

July 30th – National Cheesecake Day  – The Golden Girls must have started this holiday.

July 31st – Mutt’s Day – For those who missed out on National Hot Dog Day.
