Celebrate Something Everyday

Find something to celebrate everyday! The fact that you woke up this morning and you are still breathing is something to Celebrate!

Every Day there are holidays and celebrations around the world. I hope this lens will be a resource for you to find something to celebrate everyday. If you have an idea for a celebration that I haven't covered, let me know. I might add it to this page or one of the other pages that I link to from here.

"Dwell in possibility..." ~~Emily Dickenson

For the purpose of this website a "holiday" can be any day that recognizes a cultural event ...and other stuff. If there is no holiday to celebrate, make up your own and share it with friends and family.

If you have something that you celebrate and you don't find it here, post it in the guest book at the end of this page.

      @David Stone1: I have one on Pi Day. It gets a few hits 2x a year. Maybe you and I have a similar sense of humor. :-)

      I love the take on this. Celebrate every day for some reason or for every reason. I actually did a lens (on a quest) about Rhombus Day, celebrating Pythagoras and the founding of modern mathematics. It didn't take off, though. Maybe my sense of humor was a little too obscure.

      @OhMe: Good for you! Why not celebrate our birth anytime we want to. What better thing is there to celebrate than our life?

      My grandson went to the grocery store with me several days ago and he really wanted a chocolate chip cookie cake but they were all decorated with Happy Birthday. His birthday isn't until October but he wanted one of these cookies. My first reaction was to say "but it's not your birthday" and then I thought better and said "you can have an unbirthday day today" so we purchased the big cookie and enjoyed the celebration!

It's gonna be fun. 7 families together feasting(with our kids 'hovering' around us. Thanks for sharing this lens.

      If you can't find anything else, try celebrating your unbirthday - that takes care of 364 days a year (and yes, people can give you ubirthday presents but might give you funny looks when you ask for them)

      Well it's funny that you should come visit overnight, and I go to look for a lens of yours to visit, and my eyes fall on this one. Today is our 1st Wedding Anniversary, and I am really lucky to have Debbie, especially after her recent illness and Brain Tumor. I hope this is a better year for us and for you too Pat. There is another song called Celebration by PFM (you might find it as La Festa - they are Italian). I really enjoyed this lens, Blessed by an angel.
