    Daily Holidays – March 16

    Freedom of Information Day On March 16th 1751, in a nation that was heading towards a rebellion that would change the world forever, James Madison Jr. was born in Port Conway, Virginia. He was raised on a tobacco plantation with his 11 younger brothers and sisters, and inherited the plantation upon his fathers death. Showing the sort of fearless ambition and political savvy that would serve him well in the years to come, he then grew that plantation to 5000 acres, becoming the largest landowner in Orange County, Virginia, and one of the most important citizens of the area. He would later come to be known as “Father of the Constitution” for drafting the United States Constitution and the United States Bill of Rights, and was the loudest voice of the time for ensuring that the government of the newly formed nation held no secrets from the people it served. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/freedom-of-information-day/

    Lips Appreciation Day Who doesn’t love lips, right? Take a moment to appreciate the tactile and speech facilities given to you through the use of your lips for Lips Appreciation Day! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/lips-appreciation-day/

    No Selfies Day      There’s an epidemic in the world today, a growing plague of epic proportions that effects every piece of social media out there. New devices have been made to help accelerate its growth, and we can see its effects every time we access social media. The plague is selfies, and they are by far the worst thing to come out of the accessibility of self-photography. Thankfully, there’s a day dedicated to breaking free of this terrible addiction, and it’s No-Selfies Day. For one day, you can finally stop participating in this narcissistic and, as it turns out, psychologically damaging behavior. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/no-selfies-day/

    Panda Day Pandas are big fluffy balls of fan wearing a tuxedo! Everyone knows what a panda looks like, and no one hates them. (You, in the back, the panda hater, you’re invited to leave planet Earth at any time) These cuddly little tumblers are especially known for their prodigious appetites that give them the ability to consume massive amounts of bamboo. Panda Day is dedicated to spreading awareness about this majestic teddy-bears of nature, spreading the word that deforestation is leading to the destruction of their habitats, and has placed them on the endangered animal list. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/panda-day/

      3. Thanks

      If we see Panda’s with selfie sticks today I guess we should probably ask them to wait until tomorrow……

        4. Ha!

        I’m sure pandas are learning that from all the selfies taken trying to get them in the background.

    5. Lips lips and more lips.

    Of a very special person, of course. My one and only. More lip locks are necessary.
