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.

National Dance day

Happy (Second) Dance day

Mother Goose day

Where would we be without mother goose? Today's a day to remember the mother goose rhymes!
Here's a couple common ones I found online:

Little Bo peep has lost her sheep,
And can't tell where to find them;
Leave them alone, and they'll come home,
And bring their tails behind them.

Little Bo Peep Fell fast asleep,
And dreamt she heard them bleating;
But when she awoke, she found it a joke,
For they were still a-fleeting.

Then up she took her little crook,
Determined for to find them;
She found them indeed, but it made her heart bleed,
For they'd left their tails behind them.

Little Jack Horner
Sat in a corner,
Eating his Christmas pie.
He put in his thumb,
And pulled out a plum,
And said "What a good boy and I!"

A farmer went riding
 Upon his grey Mare;
Bumpety, Bumpety, Bump!
With his  daughter behind him,
so Rosy and fair;
Lumpety, Lumpety Lump!

A raven cried "Croak!"
And they all tumbled down;
Bumpety, Bumpety Bump!
The mare broke her knees,
the farmer his crown;
Lumpety, Lumpety, Lump!

The mischievous raven 
Flew laughing away;
Bumpety, Bumpety, Bump!
He vowed he would serve them
 The same the next day;
Lumpety, Lumpety, Lump!

More Rhymes
