Betsy Ross Day
Veni, Vidi, Velcro.
I came, I saw, I stuck around.
I know, goofy quote.
It’s the best sewing quote
I could find
for Betsy Ross
…and I do so love Velcro. ~Ruth
Happy birthday to Betsy Ross (1752). Pocahontas (1595) joins Betsy in celebrating her birth on this the first day of the new year.
It is also Give an Apple as a Gift Day. Maybe to someone celebrating another holiday that falls today, Lose Weight and Feel Great Week, might like a smiling apple.
Over on a month full of Smiley Silliness it’s the start of Someday We’ll Laugh About It Week. I always say, go ahead and laugh about it now. Why wait!!! Got to figure this is a tie into New Year’s Eve Resolutions. Opinionated as I am, I have a pretty strong opinion that the way most people do resolutions doesn’t reflect or encourage self love. My resolutions are all about things I WILL do, not things I won’t do.
Today is also Z Day. The one day in the year when if your name begins with Z, you get to go first. Hey wait a minute. The kids aren’t in school on January 1. This holiday is kind of like having your birthday in the summer; no school friends to celebrate your special day.
BTW, the Smileys and holidays on a month full of Smiley Silliness are all different than the ones you see here on the website’s Daily Smiley.
