My favorite  would be 24. Universal Human Beings Week. Peace for all human beings. Spread love, no hate.

Here's a funny fact!

It's the BEER day in Iceland 

Beer was banned in Iceland until March 1st 1989 - so today is sort of the national beer day :)

Happy March 1st! Time to juggle celebrating with peanut butter, corgis, and unplugging—all while riding a blue-dressed horse. Because why settle for one celebration when you can have 27?😉

Cheers to all the multi-tasking Atlassian champs! 🎉

I already have plans for a special dinner out with 8 good friends, so I'll be celebrating #3 - National Dadgum That's Good Day.

I would love to celebrate the Global Day of Unplugging, but my niece is in labor and we are using text messages to keep tabs on how she is doing and when the baby is born.

😆 Pretty sure "bacon" isn't the intent of National Pig Day, @Dan Breyen !  HAHAHA  Now I want bacon.  🥓

This is awesome! So many great things to celebrate! I'll celebrate National Dadgum That’s good day, Self-Injury Awareness Day as I'm always running into things, National Dress in Blue Day as I have a blue shirt on today, National Invest in Veterans Week as I invest in my father everyday, Universal Human Beings Week, and maybe I'll go to a local Cornish Pasty place for Cornish Pasty Week. All sounds like Fun! Also, I'm an employee so I appreciate myself!

World Compliment Day is perfect.  We can all use a little more humanity in our lives.  My days are brighter knowing that I can rely on your insight, assistance and personal posts.  I love this Community.  Happy Friday, everyone!

I'm picking 3 to add to my monthly calendar this March - I can't do them all today.

  • National Barista Day - will make sure to tip my Starbucks barista a bit extra to show my appreciation for the pick-me-up that the Venti Decaf Skinny Vanilla Latte with Soy Milk brings my smile!
  • World Compliment Day  - this one needs some prep time, glad I learned about it now so I can put in the effort needed to nail it!
  • Write a Letter Appreciation Week - I love writing, and can combine it with World Compliment Day, so it's a win-win!

Thanks for this inspiring and informative post @Humashankar VJ

I will start with World Compliment Day and say well done on this post!

And dadgum, peanut butter is good! (wondering if there is a two birds with one stone day!). 

And certainly National Invest in Veterans Week.
