The laundry will be just fine in the basket until tomorrow.
You’ve got enough plates to leave the washing up until the morning, just this once.
No Housework Day is the one day a year you can just relax, forget those daily chores and do absolutely anything else instead. It’s a chance to indulge yourself with no guilt, no stress and no dusting.
You could celebrate it a little differently; if you’re not the person who normally does the housework, why not take over just for today to give them a break? Or if you have a neighbour who’s not as young as they were, how about offering to help out with chores this No Housework Day?
However you choose to celebrate, don’t forget to sit back and raise a (presumably dirty) glass to the kind soul who invented it!
The beaver may be the national animal of Canada but the furry dam-building rodent can be found across the North American continent and Eurasia as two distinct species, but the population has been on the decline for several decades now. International
Beaver Day aims to celebrate and raise awareness of the plight of the rodent. Beavers are known for their tree-munching activities, but did you know that they use every bit of the tree that they fell?Â They eat the buds, bark and leaves, before gnawing the branches and trunk into smaller pieces to build with. The dams are useful in preventing floods and droughts, restoring the northern wetlands and helping to cleanse the water. The largest beaver-built dam is in Wood Buffalo National Park, Alberta, Canada and is 850m long!
International Beaver Day is a great time to hike into the woods to spot some of these noble gnawers.
Whether you’re a lager lover or a cask ale connoisseur, there’s no excuse not to raise a glass to another yearly installment of Beer Day – the perfect opportunity for beer brewers, sellers and buyers to raise their frosty glasses in celebration of the oldest, and most popular alcoholic beverage on the planet!
Bars, restaurants and pubs all over the world join in with the celebration, so it’s easier than ever to show your appreciation for the people who brew beer, and those who make it available for us all to drink on that parched summer’s afternoon.
