I was talking with my mom and I decided that I would spend the next year celebrating as many holidays and occurrences as possible. I think there are around 300 holidays a month!
My mom and I have always loved all the peculiar holidays and have had many laughs discussing them. I think this year will be a lot of fun but it will also require a lot of dedication, time, and it wont be without costs. I will give you once a week up dates once I get it started (Probably next month) and I will post daily journalings as often as possible. I have a feeling I will be rather busy.
I am home schooled which I believe will make this a whole heap easier, but also more challenging. Mom made an agreement with me... For this year I will use this as a lot of my school work. I will be writing reports on many of these days and I will be doing loads of research. I look forward to this coming year and I hope you will enjoy following my blog.
Feel free to post your comments along the way.

Safety Pin Day

Today we celebrate when the safety pin was invented. Here's how it was invented:
Apparently an inventor named Walter Hunt owed his friend fifteen dollars. He wanted to invent something to make a bit of money to pay his friend back. He invented things a lot but didn't usually make much money off of them. So he invented the safety pin, hoping to make enough to pay his friend. He made four hundred dollars off of his pins! He had plenty of money left over after paying his friend, and became famous for some thing we use daily!
Happy Safety Pin day!
