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 24, 2010 ~ Love Note Day

I must admit, I'm not really sure I have this on the correct day.  My initial research showed this day at the 4th Friday in September, but subsequently I've seen it referenced anywhere from the 22nd to the 26th this year.  I guess it just goes to show that true love has no boundaries.  Whatever day this is, it seems like such a nice idea to send the one you love a romantic note.  The very best love notes come from the heart and are not store bought or copied from a book of love poetry.  So, put on your thinking cap, pick up the pen, and write what you feel...  Have a wonderful day!!!
