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:
- Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day – I actually love the cause for this one.
- Cow Milked While Flying In An Airplane Day (WTF??!)
- The Great American Spit Out (NOT what I thought it was, IYKWIM.)
- And my personal favorite, National Drink Wine Day.
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!
