Everybody loves chocolate chips! They’re great in cookies, ice cream, crepes and even on their own as a treat. For Chocolate Chip Day, celebrate by making something really special with chocolate chips. If you have children, making cookies is a really easy and fun way to celebrate, and they’ll enjoy eating them when they’re cooked as well! Mix things up by arranging the chocolate chips to make faces and other patterns so that when they’re cooked they’ll be unique.
A great way to celebrate Chocolate Chip Day and really get into the spirit of things is to make something and share it with friends or neighbours. If they like your cooking, encourage them to make something with chocolate chips and share it with one of their friends, too. This way everyone can enjoy Chocolate Chip Day with some great tasting treats!
Some holidays are there to celebrate events of momentous cultural significance; others are there to remind us of the little things in life. Nylon Stockings Day is very much in the second category, and a particularly quirky holiday it is too.
As might be guessed from the name, this is a day in which women across the world can celebrate stockings – a major part of day-to-day fashion for many women.
The stocking has come to represent a large number of different concepts, from femininity to sexuality, and so we should not be too surprised to find that there are people willing to celebrate it. Granted, setting an entire day aside may seem an excessive measure to some people, but that is business as usual with holidays – what is just another date on the calendar to one person may be a red-letter day to another.
