National Holidays Hallmark Forgot



Life is also, quite clearly, especially busy for the good people of Hallmark, who apparently have no time to celebrate the wonder that is National String Cheese Day (totally understandable in my book). National Chocolate Milkshake Day, and anything National Donut Day related, as well as an endless list of others, however, really deserve a bit of recognition.

Big Shout Out to those Awesome Folks at National Day Calendar and the Equally Awesome, Picture-Taking Gang at

Don’t forget to take time out of your busy week to celebrate these all-important (to some people) holidays:)
