Today Is....March 17th



It is also Saint Patrick's Day!!  St. Patrick's Day takes place on the anniversary of the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, who is thought to have died in 461. Contrary to what many may think, St. Patrick was not Irish—he was born in Roman Britain, in what is now England, Scotland, or Wales. At the age of 16, he was kidnapped and taken to Ireland to be a slave. During his time in captivity, he turned to his Christian faith. He escaped six years later, began religious training, and later returned to Ireland as a missionary. Some credit him with bringing Christianity to the country, but it is believed a bishop known as Palladius had been doing mission work there since 431. It is likely Patrick ministered to those who were already Christians, while converting others.










Have a SAFE St. Patrick's Day!

SusyL is busy with RL at the moment and asked me to update her topic.  


Today is  Monday 18 March 2019.


It is also :


Act Happy Day

When someone is happy they are joyful and content, and today is a day to act as if that is how you feel. This is not done merely to make people believe you are happy but to actually get yourself to feel happier. Act Happy Day was created by Dr. Dale Anderson of St. Paul, Minnesota, who also created National Wellderly Day on the same day in 2004. He created them "in an effort to promote the health benefits of happiness, humour, and laughter."


Awkward Moments Day

Awkward moments are those that cause embarrassment, and they pretty much happen every day.


Goddess of Fertility Day

Goddess of Fertility Day celebrates fertility, life, and rebirth, and takes place a few days before the spring equinox each year. Fertility is the capability to produce offspring, and besides sexual behavior, it is contingent on a number of factors such as nutrition, culture, and economics. There are many goddesses of fertility. Perhaps the best-known goddess is Aphrodite, who is associated with love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. Her Roman equivalent is Venus, and she is sometimes associated with the Egyptian goddess Isis.


Forgive Mom & Dad Day

Forgive Mom and Dad Day is being observed today! Make up. Surely it can’t be that bad that you cant pick up the phone and take that first step.


National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day

Make some tasty cookies to eat and give away.


National Sloppy Joe Day

A sloppy joe is a sandwich consisting of ground beef or pork, onions, tomato sauce or ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and other seasonings, served on a hamburger bun. The dish originated in the United States during the early 20th century.




National Weldery  (Well Elderly Day)

Dr. Dale Anderson created National Wellderly Day along with Act Happy Day "in an effort to promote the health benefits of happiness, humour, and laughter."

Dr. Anderson suggested that one should start each day by standing in front of a mirror and letting out a huge belly laugh, in order to set the tone for the day ahead. He said that people can do this at any age, even if they are old. By doing so, those who are elderly will instead be "WELLderly." Dr. Anderson even wrote a book called Never Act Your Age, about how humor and laughter can have many health benefits at any age.


National BioDiesal Day.

Happy BioDiesal Day

All diesel engines and vehicles can use biodiesel or biodiesel blends. Certain older vehicles built before 1993 may require replacement of fuel lines which contain natural rubber, as biodiesel can cause these lines to swell or crack. Biodiesel can be used 100% (B100) or in blends with petroleum diesel fuel.


Supreme Sacrifice Day

Supreme sacrifice is defined as something a person would give their life for. An example of a supreme sacrifice is a soldier giving their life for their country.

World Meterological Day  


Near Miss Day  commemorates the time when the 4581 Asclepius asteroid had a close call with hitting earth, passing by about 425,000 miles away.

It was closest to earth between March 22 and 23, 1989, but was not discovered until March 31, by astronomers Henry E. Holt and Norman G. Thomas at the Palomar Observatory in California.

Happy Manatee Appreciation Day.



In honor of the day, here are some fun facts about manatees:

  • They have a life span of about 60 years.
  • They are docile creatures, and have no natural enemies.
  • They like slow rivers, canals, saltwater bays, estuaries and coastal areas.
  • They are a migratory species, and inhabit Florida waters during the winters, and then move as far north as Virginia, and as far west as Texas, in the summer months.
  • The manatee only eats vegetables.
  • The most significant challenge they face today is loss of habitat.
  • There are about 3,200 manatees living in the US at this time.

Mothering Sunday:  Mothering Sunday is a religious holiday that also is celebrated secularly. It is mainly celebrated in Europe by Catholic and Protestant Christians, taking place exactly three weeks before Easter, on the fourth Sunday of Lent. Originally, during the sixteenth century, it was a day when people who visit their "mother" church: the place where they were baptized, the local parish church, or the nearest cathedral—the mother church of all area parish churches. Eventually, domestic servants were given the day off to visit their mother church and their families. Children would pick up flowers on their way to church to either put in the church or give to their mothers.
