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.

It's Pie Day ~ January 23


One of my favorite movies...I'm a bit partial to John Travolta because we share the same birthday...but that song was the first thing that came to my head when I learned about "Pie Day" (and yes, I love pie!)

In honor of Pie Day, I created a whole line of items at Zazzle...

Look for a personalized gift at Zazzle.

For those of us that will be spending the day baking our favorite pies some handy gadgets from Amazon...

And for those of us looking from some great pie recipes...

Just to name a few...guess I'm not the only one that likes pie.
