1. National Grandparents Day (Sept 7)
National Grandparents Day is a holiday set aside to encourage you to spend some time with your "old folks". Apparently, this was established back in 1978 and signed into law by President Jimmy Carter! They even have their own (sort of cheesy) song: A Song for Grandma And Grandpa
. If you've been missing this important holiday then you better find a way to make it up to your grandma and grandpa.
2. National Teddy Bear Day (Sept 9)
No one knows the origin of this holiday, however cyberspace has spoken and it has declared Sept 9th as National Teddy Bear Day! Teddy Bears were inspired by "Teddy" Roosevelt. One day, on a hunting trip, "Teddy" Roosevelt couldn't find any game to shoot. When he had an opportunity to shoot a small baby bear, he refused. A toy company read the story and proceeded to name the Teddy Bear after him. Be sure to celebrate this cute day by cuddling with your childhood Teddy Bear!
3. National Play-Doh Day (Sept 16)
Oh, the nostalgia! National Play-Doh Day was created by Hasbro, one of the largest toy companies in the world. You can celebrate this day by buying a pack of wacky colours to create a kiddy masterpiece. Let your inner Picasso out ;). Or, if you want an even quirkier way of celebrating this lovely day, you can spritz on some certified Play-Doh Perfume
(made for women and men).
4. National Cheeseburger Day (Sept 18)
AKA, Errryday. This unofficial holiday is an awesome excuse to go out to your favorite burger joint and order an All-American Cheeseburger. You can find a bunch of deals on this day, so keep your eyes open. If you're ever in Toronto then order from The Burger's Priest
, you will not be disappointed!
