October 1, 2013: It’s a five-fer on this first day of October, but overall, I had 13 holidays on my list to choose from. CD Player Day is probably on its way out, since MP3 players are taking over. But I still remember my Sony Discman fondly. Denim Day will never go out of style, because jeans are eternal. Likewise, Homemade Cookies Day is going to be one for the ages. There’s nothing like homemade cookies; no store-bought have ever come close, in my opinion. Fire Pup Day celebrates the noble Dalmatian, as well as other dogs serving as mascots at fire houses around the world. And whether it’s World Music Day meaning the world celebrating music, or celebrating the genre known as “world music”, I think we can all get behind a few tunes.
I could sneak a couple of the other holidays in here: World Vegetarian Day, if this guy is of the non-meat-eating variety, and National Lace Day, depending on his undergarments. I’ll let you draw that doodle in your own mind.
