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.

October 18 ~ National Chocolate Cupcake Day

     I've been waiting for this one.... Yummy!!!  My favorite cupcake is chocolate with vanilla icing, but I never turn down an all chocolate one.
     Whether you make a batch from the box, buy them ready made, or go all out and make them from scratch, today you have permission to indulge and forget about calories and diets.  
     If you want to try your hand at making the perfectly chocolatey chocolate cupcake I came across this recipe at a blog called Cupcake Project...looks sinfully delicious, and they claim it's better than sex.
       Some great cupcake supplies...
