September is Special

368 days left

I love September - school starts, flowers and vegetables are bursting out of the garden and the leaves turn those fabulous autumn colors. But what I like best about September is the crisp air, fall sports, apple harvesting and school supplies. Did you know that almost every September day is a celebration day? We celebrate the newspaper carrier day today. In case you missed it, Wednesday was National Blueberry popsicle day. And tomorrow is National Cheese Pizza day. Bill is so happy that we didn't miss pizza day......

The whole month is incredibly important. Where would we be without the special remembrances that fall to September?
•Baby Safety Month
•Better Breakfast Month
•Cable TV Month
•Children's Eye Health and Safety Month (not to be confused with BABY safety)
•Classical Music Month (competing with cable tv - tough one)
•Library Card Sign-Up Month
•National Chicken Month (do chicken really need a month? )
•National Courtesy Month (you're welcome)
•National Honey Month (food or people?)
•National Pediculosis Prevention Month (WTH? - this means HEAD LICE!!!!)
•National Piano Month
•National Rice Month
•National School Success Month
•National Sewing Month
•Read-A-New-Book Month
•Women of Achievement Month

There are so many family birthdays and anniversaries in September, I thought I’d match them to national days.
