An ode to…the time clock? The assembly line? The office computer? The poem may need some work, but this is what Poetry At Work Day is all about – finding the beauty in your job and putting it into some form of artful prose.
Every day in our jobs we encounter people and situations that could be put into verse – whether it be a line from an important presentation, a rhythm you notice in the manufacturing process, or perhaps the feelings you wish to encapsulate about the people you serve or a situation you faced. Poetry at Work Day is a great opportunity to take a bit of time to slow down and get your creative juices flowing – to try to put into words in a beautiful way an aspect of your workplace. So, get brainstorming and creating your poetic masterpieces – the world is waiting to hear them!
We all find it difficult to keep our homes tidy and organised, and its oh so easy to keep putting off tasks that always seem to require too much effort and time than we care to dedicate to them.
Enter Organise Your Home Day, the perfect chance to quit making excuses for one day, get down to business and get your home back into shape! Put everything else aside for a few hours and get to task on all those little niggling things and DIY jobs that have been begging to be finished for months now. Get your friends and family involved and help each other out to get everything done quicker and make the day more fun. You will be surprised how much you can get done, and how much difference giving your home a little TLC can make to your life.
For all sandwich lovers of the Joey Tribbiani level, Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day cannot come often enough. Every year on January 14, we pay homage to the wonderful sandwich-pioneers who brought this smoked meat classic, and celebrate in kind. Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day should be celebrated by a gathering of your closest friends and family, and giving thanks to this wonderful culinary invention. A hot pastrami sandwich should be enjoyed in the traditional sense, between two warmed slices of bread, and with plenty of mustard to add that certain je ne sais quoi.
On January 14 sit the family, extended family, and all those dearest to you, and enjoy everything that a hot pastrami sandwich has to offer. Be careful with variations, they have the potential to backfire, and vegetarians be warned that the tempting smell of the brined, dried, seasoned and smoked meat may just be enough to break you from your meatless meals.
Dress Up Your Pet Day is an opportunity to wow the neighbours, and to unleash the inner diva of your favourite pooch or Persian… Why not go the extra mile, and get the little guy or gal something to match your finest glad rags – that way you can both dress to impress and really set some trends!
Have you seen a bald eagle today?
The Feast of the Ass (Latin: Festum Asinorum or asinaria festa, French: FÃªte de l'Ã¢ne) was a medieval, Christian feast observed on January 14, celebrating the Flight into Egypt. It was celebrated primarily in France, as a by-product of the Feast of Fools celebrating the donkey-related stories in the Bible, in particular the donkey bearing the Holy Family into Egypt after Jesus's birth.
