We had pancakes, buttermilk pancakes, corn meal pancakes, chocolate chip pancakes, banana pancakes, German pancakes, crepes, and all the toppings imaginable to go with them.
I then successfully threw a costume party on my birthday in April, but nobody knew it was my birthday, I just threw a “random” party. I found out quickly that my friends, neighbors, and classmates were dying to have a little fun, somebody just needed to organize it! The guests at my “not-birthday-party” filled our little apartment and spilled out onto the balcony. It was a huge hit!
So I continued to look for an excuse to throw a party.
Here are a few of my favorite “holidays” (if they can really be considered holidays, that is!):
Pie Day on March 14, as pi is 3.14, get it? So we make lots of pies and invite friends over to help us eat them.
National Ice Cream Day on the third Sunday in July, which happens to be the 17th this year. Even if you don’t throw a big party, at least sit down and enjoy a good serving of your favorite ice cream! Phish Food by Ben and Jerry’s is a must have for this occasion!
National Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19. Talk like a pirate, dress like a pirate, eat like a pirate, send your kids on a treasure hunt…the possibilities are endless!!
I have yet to find any official celebration day in August, but the tall, handsome man in the picture above found a solution to that by marrying me on August 8th, 2008, so we will always have a reason to celebrate that month. Feel free to celebrate with us, if you so desire! 😉
