What If Cats and Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day prompts us to think about how our dogs and cats would cope with having opposable thumbs – let alone us!
Apart from using What If Cats and Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day to celebrate our pets, it’s also an excuse to make use of Photoshop and post relevant pictures of cats and dogs with opposable thumbs on social media. Offering prizes for the funniest entries on animal friendly groups and forums is one way of stimulating interest for the day.
What If Cats and Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day can also be used to raise awareness of cat and dog welfare issues. Dressing up as a cat or dog, in the name of your local animal shelter, complete with opposable thumbs, will certainly grab people’s attention.

Cold Cuts Day is the day upon which anything and everything related to cold cut meats are celebrated. Noboday really knows where the celebration of such an essential part of the human diet (and fridge essential stocks!) came from, but frankly, it’s as good an excuse as any to get down with the Joey from Friends philosophy on life and yell, “nobody touches my food”! Folks, prepare your pants, it’s time to eat!
Cold cuts come in many shapes and forms whether it’s leftover ham, turkey or chicken, deli sliced pastrami, salami, chorizo, sausage or corned beef. The key to truly celebrating National Cold Cuts Day in style is lashings and lashings of cold cuts, freshly baked bread, salad and a creative flurry in the kitchen. Whack any cold cut you can find on the bread, top it with salad and a drizzle of oil, and tuck in!
It remains unclear who proclaimed Mulled Wine Day, but this hot beverage deserves to be celebrated for its global popularity. We can thank the ancient Romans for having spread the recipe across their colonies. Just like modern-day Italians, their ancestors couldn’t stand average quality wines, so they invented mulled wine as an efficient way to make unremarkable wine tastier and more aromatic.
You can order it in bars during cold season as glühwein in Germany, vin chaud in France, glögg in Sweden – it goes by a number of names in other cultures too. The characteristic fragrance breaks all language barriers.
The best way to celebrate this holiday is to go out, enjoy a chilly evening walk with friends and then stop at a bar or pub serving mulled wine. It’ll blush your cheeks and lift your spirits. If you enjoy the cold weather only from the other side of the window, throw a mulled wine party at home as this tasty treat is so easy to prepare!
