May 1st - Mother Goose Day!!

Happy Mother Goose Day!!!(Okay, so it's also "May Day", but it's snowing like crazy here and doesn't feel much like a day for flowers, so Mother Goose Day it is!)

On a cold, snowy day, there's no nicer way to celebrate Mother Goose Day than play with some of your favorite characters.

Cinderella and Red Riding Hood hanging out.

You can guess who this fellow is.

Sleeping Beauty is awake!

Although Red Riding Hood is a story all on her own, her tale was originally published as part of a bunch of fairy tales called "Tales of Mother Goose".

This little bear isn't really a Mother Goose character, he just wanted to come along to suggest maybe you read some of your favorite Mother Goose rhymes which are available online, for free, here - The Real Mother Goose, via Project Gutenberg.

However you decide to celebrate Mother Goose Day, we hope you have a grand one! More May holidays to come!

April 2nd is Florida Day!

So I've been researching lesser known holidays and observances in the hopes of inspiring more mini blogging on the Norm's blog.

So far, so good.

Today, April 2nd, is Florida Day! Here's the blurb I found about it -

"Pascua Florida Day is celebrated as a state day in Florida, the United States (USA). It usually falls on April 2. It is the anniversary of the discovery of Florida in 1513 by Juan Ponce de León, who searched for gold and the Fountain of Youth. He named the land "Pascua Florida" probably because the date was near Easter." - From here Pascua Florida Day in the U.S.

I feel like I learned something! Happy Florida Day! Hope you had a wonderful one. And now I'll just have to see what the next weird holiday is. Any suggestions? What are YOUR favorite strange holidays? Let me know in the comments!
