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.

September 11, 2010 ~ Make Your Bed Day

Happy Make Your Bed Day!!!  This one had to be invented by a mom who wanted just one day of having the kids make their own beds....  Now, if you are lucky enough to have a maid, as in this art poster, this day isn't all that're use to having the beds made.  Not really sure who would want to own the poster of a maid making a bed, but to each his own.  I did notice the maid is working on those hospital corners...
As the mom of an Army recruiter I thought I'd share with you the proper way to make a bed (with those hospital corners) Army style...

And now for those of us less serious about the art of bed making.....

Yup, that looks more like the way I do it!!!
