Friday Five: 5 Weird Holidays This Week
April 6th - New Beer's Eve
This was flying around Facebook on Sunday. New Beer's Eve is an unofficial holiday to celebrate the end of Prohibition in the US on April 6th 1933. This is immediately followed by National Beer Day on April 7th, because we all need a special holiday to celebrate beer. Isn't that what St. Patrick's Day is for?

April 7th - National No Housework Day
I learned on Pinterest that April 7th is National No Housework day (which is a good thing because you might not be in the mood for housework after celebrating New Beer's Eve the night before). I don't know that I need a special day to not do housework. But hey, any excuse, right? I did some light research (aka Google search) and couldn't find out why this day exists, which supports my theory that it is a totally made up day by people who don't want to do housework. Where do I sign up?

April 10th - National Siblings Day
Another holiday I learned about this week from all the pictures on Facebook. Happy National Siblings Day! I shared a picture of my brother and sister to celebrate this event, however, I am still waiting for my siblings day gifts to arrive in the mail. How rude of them to forget such an important holiday!

April 11th - National Pet Day
This is a holiday made popular on Instagram. I can get behind this one! Any excuse to share the love of my precious Ollie.

April 12th - National Hug a Blogger Day
OK, I will admit, I totally made this one up. But if other people can make up holidays, why can't I? I really think this one will catch on. Although I'm not sure I am ready to accept random hugs from strangers on the street. Virtual Hugs, anyone?

That's my Friday Five, but please remember tomorrow is National Grilled Cheese day. That's one holiday you wouldn't want to pass uncelebrated.
Anyone heard of these so-called holidays? Are you on board for National Hug a Blogger Day?
