Get outside and fly a kite today - weather pending!
For all people under 5’4″, you have a day where you can be petite and proud! Are you tired of people making derogatory comments about your size, such as: half pint, vertically challenged or titch? Petite And Proud Day is all about celebrating our lack of height and the advantages it brings. For example, we can squeeze into small spaces, we don’t bang our heads on low ceilings and we can fit in children’s’ clothing, which saves us money! Apparently short people live longer than their lankier counterparts, which is definitely worth celebrating.
Also, there are more petite celebrities than you might think, the following people are all 5’4″ or under: Nathalie Portman, Kylie Minogue, Michael J Fox, Seth Green, Amy Poehler, Reese Witherspoon and Eva Longoria. Why not celebrate being petite with a petite and proud party, by posting an affirming message on Facebook or by making a quirky badge?

National Candied Orange Peel Day is dedicated to...you guessed it.... candied orange peels!
Now, just what the heck is a candied orange peel? And, is it edible? Yes, it's edible. If you are a chef or a baker, then you know just what it is, and how to use it. For the rest of us, we likely have enjoyed it in seasonal baked goods all of our lives, without even knowing we have eaten it.
Candied orange peels are a boiled, sliced, sugar added treat. You can eat them by themselves. But most often, they are used in holiday cookies, snacks, and fruitcake.
On this day, bake some cookies or other recipes that use candied orange peels. Then, eat and enjoy!

Renewal Day is an absolutely spectacular day. It's a day of new, and old, beginnings.
Things get old and out of sorts. We lose touch with friends, loved ones, and relationships. For whatever reason, we ""let ""it"" go. Well, whatever ""it"" is, today is the day to renew it, rejuvenate it, and bring the spark back into it.
When we think of ""renewal"", we often think of relationships. We vow our marriage will never get old. But, it does. We swear we will remain close to our parents and siblings. But over the years, we don't. With a hug and a tear, we tell our college roommate we will call and write. All too quickly, the demands of everyday life keep us from calling or writing. ...get the picture?
Renewal Day is not limited to renewing relationships and social issues. You can also renew:
