As you all know we are a global community here on 3DX and there are many holidays that take place that others may not be aware of.   Fill us in won't you? I look forward to reading about all of the different ways we all celebrate life.  I will get us started.


What better day than to start with:


Cinco de Marcho  which marks the beginning of the season to train the liver for St. Patrick's Day, a holiday known for drinking that is just 12 days away. Cinco de Marcho is a drinking day for those who don't often drink, and want to be prepared to drink on the upcoming holiday. Cinco de Marcho is not just a day, but a 12 day season leading up to St. Patrick's Day, with the closing ceremony on that holiday.







March 5th is also:  


International Pancake Day


Multiple Personality Day


National Potty Dance Day


National Cheese Doodle Day


Peace Corp Day


National Sportsmanship Day


Reel Film Day


Unique Name Day


Paczki Day




But of course the main focus of today is Fat Tuesday, or the first day of Mardi Gras!! 


I love New Orleans and for many years it was my home away from home but I miss it most at this time of year.

Here's  some of the UK & Welsh holidays 



Welsh  Holidays & Festivals


December 24 – Xmas Eve


December  25 – Christmas Day


December 26 – Boxing Day.  (In times of Gentry, servants were needed to work Christmas Day to serve the feast and clear up afterwards, but as a consequence the Gentry boxed up the left overs of the day and they were given to servants to celebrate xmas the next day and so Boxing day was born and an extra day of celebrations.)


Christmas is celebrated as traditionally expected, exchanging gifts , carol singing, and feasting and drinking well


But in addition to there is a Welsh tradition found in South Wales:


The Mari Lwyd (Welsh pronunciation: [ˈma.ri ˈlʊi̯d]) is a wassailing folk custom found in South Wales. The tradition entails the use of an eponymous hobby horse which is made from a horse's skull mounted on a pole and carried by an individual hidden under a sack cloth. It represents a regional variation of a "hooded animal" tradition that appears in various forms throughout Great Britain.


The custom was first recorded in 1800, with subsequent accounts of it being produced into the early twentieth century. According to these, the Mari Lwyd was a tradition performed at Christmas time by groups of men. They would form into teams to accompany the horse on its travels around the local area, and although the makeup of such groups varied, they typically included an individual to carry the horse, a leader, and individuals dressed as stock characters such as Punch & Judy.


The team would carry the Mari Lwyd to local houses, where they would request entry through the medium of song. The householders would be expected to deny them entry, again through song, and the two sides would continue their responses to one another in this manner. If the householders eventually relented, then the team would be permitted entry and given food and drink.

Although the custom was given various names, it was best known as the Mari Lwyd; Grey Mare

The International Women’s Day is celebrated each year on March 8.

It used to be called the International Working Women’s Day and this event is a commemoration of the incident in 1908 were 129 women died.

It was said that these women are factory workers who have been demanding better pay, shorter work hours, voting rights, etc.

To avoid publicity, the owner of the factory locked them up and fire broke down which caused the death of the 129 women.



So to all the women out there... 


When the world was created, you were created to beautify it and you have certainly done a great job because the world is smiling for you today.

International Day of Awesomeness!!!


Today we celebrate everything that is awesome: those things that give us a sense of awe, a feeling of reverence or fear, or are very impressive. It is also a day to do feats of awesomeness: things that are awesome that take a lot of courage, skill, or strength. Many times feats of awesomeness go unrecognized, but not today. Today is also designed to be a day of fun—a day to not be taken too seriously. One of the days' taglines is "Because everyone needs an excuse to be awesome."


Enjoy your day and never forget you are awesome!

Sorry for the late posting but I slept in on National Sleep Day.  It was a rather eventful and eye opening evening. :)


It is also:


International Day Against Police Brutality.  Sad when a special day is needed for this really but it needed to be mentioned.


Everything You Think Is Wrong Day and Dumbstruck Day seem to go hand in hand and we celebrate both today.


Perhaps being wrong and dumbstruck has something to with the fact that it is also True Confessions Day.


So will you be the one to confess or be the one to be dumbstruck as you realize that everything you thought was wrong?





What an interesting day this could be.

It is also:


Lips Appreciation Day:   Lips Appreciation Day was created as a day to do something nice for your lips, such as giving them some lip balm and letting them be kissed. Protecting lips with a balm is important, as it can shield them from harmful UV rays that cause cancer. It can also be important because lips don't have any sweat glands, causing them to dry up quickly. One reason kissing is so enjoyable is that lips are 100 times more sensitive than fingertips. Kissing also is important because pheromones and biological information may be shared during it, which may help with choosing a mate. It's important to appreciate your lips because no one has any just like yours! They are unique just like fingerprints are!  


Everything You Do Is Right Day:  You may be feeling a little down after yesterday, since it was Everything You Think Is Wrong Day. Nothing went right, and everything you thought to be true was false, wasn't it? Well, everything is going to be alright!!



So go do something special to/with your lips today ~smile~ You can't do it wrong!
