Celebrate whatever National Holiday it is … everyday! That was my 2018 New Year’s Resolution. So, how did it go? Well, it was a wild ride, that’s for sure … and one even involved being naked! :O
More on that in a second.
(April 11: National Pet Day)
Hi! This is Christine. The owner of Kansas City Photography. Since we here at KC Photo get to know our clients, and truly make them part of our family … I wanted to share with you my fun 2018 New Year’s Resolution.
(Oct. 16: National Boss’s Day … thank you, Kaleidoscope Staff!)
(Feb. 4: National Mail Carrier Day)
I wanted to do something different than just “lose weight” or “be healthier” or “be happier.” I wanted a resolution no one had done before, and that would be both fun and challenging. I had noticed every day seemed to be some sort of “national” holiday. So, I decided that whatever holiday it was … I would celebrate it!
(Jan. 2: National Buffet Day)
I learned some of the National holidays are totally worthless. Like National “Open An Umbrella Indoors Day” on March 13.
Some days were more entertaining … like National “Answer Your Cat’s Questions” Day on January 22.
Then, there were some that were very similiar. Like National Glazed Donut Day (Jan. 12), versus National Donut Day (June 1). I partook in both, of course:
Or National Margarita Day (Feb. 22) vs. National Tequila Day (July 24).
Or even National Pizza Day (Feb. 9) vs. National Cheese Pizza Day (Sept. 5).
Also, every day has more than one designated holiday, so I had to pick and choose which ones I would do each day. National Lego Day (Jan. 28) coincided with the Lego exhibit at The Magic House, so that worked out well. I could have also picked National Kazoo Day or National Blueberry Pancake Day to celebrate on this day as well!
I think my personal favorite was National Scooter Day on May 19.
It got to the point where my friends would ask me daily what National Holiday it was.
Sometimes, if they knew they’d see me that day, they’d take it upon themselves to bring ME the item needed for the daily holiday. Like National Grilled Cheese Day (April 12):
Or National Banana Split Day (Aug. 25), where my girlfriend I was visiting in Canton, Missouri, went to the grocery store just for supplies!
The resolution also dictated what I ate for certain meals. And there were a LOT of holidays involved around food.
Pictured below are:
National Tempura Day (Jan. 7), National Pizza Day (Feb. 9), National Tartar Sauce Day (March 8), National Spinach Day (March 26), National Shrimp Scampi Day (April 29), National Chicken Wing Day (July 29), National Ice Cream Day (July 15), National Taco Day (Oct. 4), and National Pasta Day (Oct. 17), and National Pickle Day (Nov. 14).
AND what I drank …
Pictured below are: National Brew A Potion Day (Jan. 19), National Rum Day (Aug. 16), National Chocolate Milk Day (Sept. 27), and National Coffee Day (Sept. 29).
Some events were all day things! For National Wine Day (May 25), a group of my friends and I went to several different places.
AND this holiday dictated what I wore … or didn’t wear … and this one was the doozy. I knew it had been coming up for months.
I got dozens of tags on Facebook about it.
World Naked Gardening Day.
The first Saturday of every May. I knew I couldn’t disappoint. 2018’s World Naked Gardening Day ALSO fell on Cindo De Mayo, so I was creative:
There are SO many more photos I could share, but I think I’d lose you.
Here is one more photo, that I got to celebrate with KC Photo’s other half, Tatiana! International No Diet Day (May 6)!
This resolution was a lot of fun! I definitely gained weight this year, but at least I had fun doing it, right?
So, what is THIS year’s resolution? 2018’s is hard to top … so I am taking suggestions! Comment below what I should do this year! The sky’s the limit.
Here’s to a fantastic 2019!
