There appears to be a holiday for just about every concept under the sun, so should we be surprised that there is such a thing as Working Naked Day? As its name suggests, Working Naked Day is the day in which you carry out the day’s work unclothed.
It should be hastily mentioned, of course, that this does not mean that your turn up at a place of work naked – rather, the whole point is that the day celebrates the act of working from home and the freedom that results from this situation. If you are still shy, then bear in mind that the day can be celebrated by wearing pyjamas.
To celebrate this day, of course, you will need the resources to be able to spend a day working from home. If you fulfil that requirement, then Working Naked Day is yours to enjoy.
For Western Monarch Day, we’re not celebrating Queen Elizabeth and friends, but the annual migratory return of the Western Monarch butterfly to the central Californian coast. The Western Monarch has a beautiful, distinctive pattern of amber and black on its wings, creating almost a stained glass window effect. It lives to the west of the Rocky Mountain Range and fly south to California to survive the winter.
The species is believed to be in decline, so those living along the migratory route, can celebrate Western Monarch Day by ensuring there are plenty of flowering plants, especially milkweed in their backyards to encourage them to visit.
Western Monarch Day is celebrated in California with events centering around Pismo State Beach, where many of the butterflies spend their winter months. Visitors can view the butterflies, learn more about them and help to plant vegetation to help create safe habitats.

The origins of this holiday are quite mysterious, no one knows who created Chocolate Fondue Day, where it was first celebrated, or why it is celebrated every year. It is one of those bizarre yet funny days that has appeared unannounced on our calendar, inviting us to enjoy a chocolatey celebration: dipping our favorite fruit, cakes, cookies and marshmallows into a pot of melted chocolate.
Chocolate fondue is a dessert that was created in the 1960s, probably in New York City. The story goes that Konrad Egli, chef at Chalet Swiss, came up with the idea as a part of a campaign to promote Swiss chocolate products in the United States. However, chocolate fondue was quickly adopted worldwide, as one of the most decadent and sensual desserts.
Get yourself a fondue pot, a bar of quality chocolate and some delicious dipping ingredients, and satisfy your sweet-tooth on Chocolate Fondue Day!
