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.

Caramel Apple Day ~ October 21

This time of year Caramel Apples are a familiar favorite.  Years ago I remember receiving them as a Halloween treat.  Of course these days you won't find them in your trick or treat bag, but you can still make them a home pretty easily.  Or you can buy the gourmet variety at a good candy shop or by mail order.

For the home version, Kraft caramel candies often come with wooden sticks this time of year and you might even find the recipe on the bag.  If not, visit Kraft's website for the recipe and some good tips.

I've created a line of cards and gift items on Zazzle just for this fun and tasty holiday...
