Granted, other months may have more famous holidays, such as Christmas, Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Easter, Veteran's Day, Father's Day & Valentine's Day, but according to this website (http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreholidays/may.htm) there's a whole lot to celebrate in May (& I did not make these up!!), such as:

  • Date Your Mate Month
  • Foster Care Month
  • National Barbecue Month
  • National Bike Month
  • National Blood Pressure Month
  • National Hamburger Month
  • National Photograph Month
  • National Recommitment Month
  • National Salad Month
  • Older Americans Month

There are many special days I found in May, too.  Following are some, but certainly not all of them:  

May 1 is National Tuba Day.  Who doesn't love those dulcet tones?

It's also Mother Goose Day & Save the Rhino Day--not to be confused with Goose the Rhino Day, which could be dangerous!! 

The 3rd is already special to a lot of us--it's Lumpy Rug Day!!

May 6th, of course, is National No Diet Day, which some of us celebrate every day!!

May 8th, as you all know, is No Socks Day.

And immediately following is Lost Sock Memorial Day.

May 13th is Leprechaun Day.

Who doesn't celebrate May 15, National Chocolate Chip Day?

May 20th is everyone's favorite, Be a Millionaire Day!!

Make yourself a note.  May 21st is National Memo Day.

May 24th is National Escargot Day.

Tap Dance Day is May 25th.

And  May 31st is Save Your Hearing Day, to which I say, "What?"

Some holiday jokes for you:

Johnny wanted to get his mom something nice for Christmas but she’s hard to shop for. Passing a pet store he thought, "Hmm, a pet might be a good idea." He walked in the pet store and asked the manager what for suggestions. "How about a puppy?" "No," said Johnny. "It may poop around the house." "A fish?" "No, her house is small, so I don’t think an aquarium will fit." Johnny then spied a parrot and asked, "How about that parrot?" "Oh," said the manager, "That’s Chet. He’s very expensive." "Well," said Johnny, "It’s my mom, let’s take a look." The manager went to Chet, put a lighter under his left wing, and Chet started to sing "Jingle bells, jingle bells..." Then the manager put a lighter under Chet’s right wing and it started to sing, "Dashing through the snow..." "Wow!" said Johnny, "What else does he sing?" The manager held the lighter under Chet’s crotch at which point Chet sang, "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire..."

A Football team was on the field during practice, when to their surprise, a big turkey suddenly walked up to the coach and demanded a tryout. “Are you crazy?,” hollered the coach, “We don’t give tryouts to turkeys.” Before he knew it the turkey started dashing towards the football and made a fantastic catch. “That was amazing”, exclaimed the coach “I have never seen anything like that! How much do you want for a year?” “Don’t worry about money,” said the turkey, “let me just ask you something, does the season go past thanksgiving?!”

I was arguing with my husband about holidays the other day.  I want to go to France, but he wants to come with me.

After all is said and done, a lot more is said than done----fishducky



  1. Your final sentence is so very true.
    And I say let your husband go to France with you.
    You go to Paris, he goes to Limoges.
    Or somewhere. :D

  2. Who could have guessed there were so many celebrations for May....but what about Mother's Day? Since my hubby played the tuba in high school, I'll have to tell him about that celebration. Have a good weekend, Fran.

  3. Makes you wonder who thought these official days were a good idea--LOL! So funny! :)

    1. I think I'll declare tomorrow National Fishducky Day!!

  4. Is ;May 6th here yet?? I'm ready.

  5. Love that last line. Think of how much could get done if no one cared who got the credit.

    1. OK. I'll admit it--I stole that last line from off the internet!!


Your comments make my day, which shows you how boring my life has become.
