    I have included my own comments by each holiday.

     

    Super Bowl Sunday: I am sure half of america (if not all) will tune in for that. huge sporting event, right?

    national Fettuccine Alfredo Day: nope. not my thing

    National Pork Rind Appreciation Day: when I eat pork, I defenetly don’t eat the rind- and I have not had pork in sometime, too. I do like pork though both

    much)

    that don’t even make sense for the element it represents

    British Yorkshire Pudding Day: totally up for this one!. one of my favorite things in a meal and always have it sunday.

    want a day to clash with people

     

    love your robot day: okay, then

    I’ll be way behind here with so many holidays each day, so for now I’ll just give a quick hooray for Laura Ingalls Wilder! First book series for me when I could read on my own was her Little House books. I have them still, plus one or two others about her, and my oldest son likes the books a lot and has his own set. I loooved the show so much as a kid!

    Also have to say: Dahl’s Chickens! I laughed so hard when I first encountered that Dickens reference in The BFG. Dahl was brilliant! 😀

    I’ll make a note to share this thread with my kiddos on Monday, then we can poke around for info on the holidays we’re interested in, and I might have some comments.
