WHAT DAY IS IT?

     For those of you who follow me , you will know that from time to time I find a special day that is odd , weird or highly commercial. For some reason the day has been sanctioned as suitable for celebration.

    So a few days ago I saw a post on face book about National Susan Day. This really caught my attention so off I went to see what Mr google would say. Mr Google said nothing. I changed my search words. Nothing! I went back the the Face book post. 

     Then I thought well, is there a Keith Day. No such luck but you find all the "Keith Days" in the world.

   This puzzled me. 

   I looked at the Face book post again. It looked like a chain letter. If your name was Susan ,you were supposed to pass this on to someone named Susan. 

   Well, I suppose it was a neat idea for all the people named Susan to celebrate their name and have some fun..

   Now when I see my friend Susan, I'll have to ask her what's going on.

  2. I avoid all memes on FB. I actually think they are ways to collect data about you.

    1. Well, I never thought about the collection of data. they certainly collect data in other ways.

    1. I stay away from chain letters . They can threaten me with all kinds of evil but the chain letter will not get by me.

  4. I never heard of a day celebrating the name of a person just for the heck of it. Leave it to you to find it, though, Red! I can't resist: it's a Red-letter Day! :-)

    1. Maybe the chain didn't get that far. I guess it didn't go viral.

  10. Yes I received a happy Larry day a week ago. I was not sure if I was to be happy that day just because or if it were required. I have known a lot of Larry's in my life but most of them are now gone.

    1. So this may be more common than we think.

  11. A Keith Day would involved lots of Keiths gathering to enjoy Keith things together... like reading a newspaper, polishing shoes and eating bowls of muesli. I guess that Keiths do other things too but as I am not a Keith I am not sure what else should be added to the list. Ballet dancing?

    1. I think Keith means strong so we are out doing "big" things! No ballet for these guys.

  16. Seriously? National Susan Day? It must be for Canada perhaps? I think August 26 is National Dog Day. October 29th is National Cat Day. My favorite is October 28th, National Chocolate Day. I wonder how many National Days there are and who creates them.

  17. That is pretty strange. The only Susan Day I know of, is the one from the old television show "The Partridge Family." Now that I think about it, I think hers is spelled Dey. Oh well...
