National Drink Wine Day and other Wacky Holidays


From Kindness to Condoms, from Mardi Gras to Spunky Old Broads, February is filled with some really wacky (and diverse) holidays. For example, yesterday was Random Acts of Kindness Day – a day I dearly love. But today? Check out the holidays that fall on February 18th:

That last one is a holiday I can totally jump on the oak casket for. We love wine in our house. Can you tell? (The photos below just show the reds. 🙂 )

In honor of #17 (Parent Leadership Month), here’s a video from those two guys I love, Tripp & Tyler, that’s guaranteed to make all the parental types laugh.

Especially if 2016 hasn’t been super kind to you so far, I figured  you could use some extra reasons to celebrate. If February is already flipping your mojo the bird, perhaps you can hold out until next month when you can celebrate National Craft Month. Or Quinoa Month, for all my gluten free pals.

What are you celebrating today? What’s on your mind this Thoughty Thursday? Enquiring minds love to know these things here at More Cowbell!

    LOL, love the video! “What did I JUST say?” We are big fans of vino around here, too. There’s a boardgame called Viticulture that we like, where you are winemakers. It’s very cool (while sipping wine, of course). Thanks for the fab mashup! 🙂

      Kathy, how do I not have Viticulture? That is soooo my kind of game. 🙂

      And yes, I’ve heard all of my words in that video. I also hear them sometimes coming out of my kid’s mouth. “How many hands do I have?” <– Spoken in answer to the 82 requests in 5 minutes game.


  2. What a fun month! Cow in an airplane! That video is funny. Have you seen that mum who sings funny mum songs to tune of Frozen and stuff. She’s so funny now what is her name?

    Have you ever “heard yourself” go into mommy-speak? I have at times and it’s terrifying. I think, who is this person? Ha ha!

    I think next year I will try to celebrate all of the February 18th holidays on one day. How many plane tickets do you think I will need for my cow? If I can fit her under my seat, do you think she will count as a carry on? And will the stewardesses be pissed when I spit my ice cream all over the seat in front of me (cuz you know I’m not going to spit out my wine!)? February 18th, 2017 shall be very interesting, indeed.

  6. Love the video. I don’t have kids, but OMG my friends say that shit all the time. “Do not make me count to 3.” Yeah, right.

    Thanks for all the fun February stuff to enjoy. I hope you’re shortest month of the year is filled with goodness.

      We’ve actually never done the counting thing, so it totally makes me laugh. Especially when they do it multiple times. Ahhhh, the joys of parenting. And being friends with parents. And having families stay in your bed and breakfast. 🙂

  7. Hmmm . . . I seem to be having a funky rainy Monday day. Thanks for the parental laughs. Perhaps a glass of Moscato is in my future this evening. 🙂
