On This Day: Singles Awareness Day


Singles Awareness Day

Let us introduce you to someone special!

We survived the Hallmark Holiday that is Valentine’s Day.  Today is a day for the singles out there!  Forget the flowers that represent plant trying to reproduce.  Ignore the sweets that just lead you to complain about your weight.  And how many teddy bears can one person really have?  Go play the field.  Let people buy drinks for you at the bar and enjoy people-watching without the risk of getting slapped!


Other Holidays:

  • National Gumdrop Day – goody, goody…nevermind
  • http://www.canada.travel/selectCountry.htmlSusan B. Anthony Day – a day honoring one of the most prominent leaders of the women’s rights movement.  See Birthdays & Remembrances
  • National Flag of Canada Daysee Also On This Day
  • Decimal Day – celebrates the UK and Ireland adopting the decimal system (1971).  Otherwise we’d still be referring to 20 pence!
