February 15th – 21st National Pancake Week (get out the syrup because this week is gonna be extra sweet!)

March 2nd Read Across America & Dr. Seuss’s Birthday! (Have a silly celebration to celebrate one of the greatest authors to ever meet poetry.)

March 5th World Book Day (Hit the library or book club to pick up a new fun read.)

April 10th National Sibling Day (It’s a great time to be thankful for your sibling. But, most importantly get in touch with your siblings.)

April 14th International Moment of Laughter Day (To celebrate this special day, simply tell jokes or do funny things that cause people to laugh. A smile is not a good enough reaction. Successful participation in this day results in whole-hearted laughter!)

April 16th National Pajama Day (the day after taxes are due in the United States, it is time to let go of the stress and wear your pajamas to work)

May 6th International No Diet Day (This day is intended for us to appreciate the body we have. It encourages us to recognize that people come in all shapes and sizes… and that’s okay!)
