Most of us think of holidays as one of those few days our employer actually pays us to stay home. We all know the big ones: New Year's, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas. And yes, some employers are a little more generous but most likely you'll have no more than 7 days a year that you consider a holiday. Depending on your religious beliefs you may add a few more to that annual list, and find that you're up to a dozen or so.
For a day to be considered a "National Holiday" it needs to be declared so by Congress. And then of course we have the "commercial holidays" that we all love, which in effect are simply days that have become popular over the years. We all love them, but for some of us that just isn't enough. Organizations, corporation, and even loosely connected groups of people can "declare" a day for any reason they choose. Some of these days catch on and become popular with the general population, some remain only recognized by their creator, and some fizzle out and become a mere memory after only a year or two.
The point is - Every day, somewhere someone is celebrating something.

August 30, 2010 ~ Toasted Marshmallow Day

Quick find some sticks...Let's toast some marshmallows!!!  Now, don't get confused....this is just toasted marshmallow day not S'mores Day which is August 10th.  Seems to me we should have toasted our marshmallows before we made our s'mores, but who ever said these holidays have any logic behind them.

Ahhh the memories of sitting around a campfire stick in hand patiently waiting, gently turning, watching carefully, for that perfect golden color.  Then, one little slip, OH NO, it's on fire.....quick, quick blow it out....too late, you now have a charcoalmallow.  YUCK!

Not in the mood to build a fire -  for a grown up treat today (and some blow torch fun) I found this on YouTube.... looks YUMMY!
