The sweetest month of the year

Rich Sutherland | Jun 25th '15
I've only just realised that June is Candy Month, which must surely be the happiest time of year. Even more so than Christmas, as we don't have to wrap anything up, carols aren't required, and there's none of that ridiculous "it's better to give than to... [read more]

The Say Something Nice Day Song

Rich Sutherland | May 30th '15
Some of the occasions in the Days Of The Year calendar are just lovely. As with every other event that we list, Say Something Nice Day is a legitimate celebration, taking place on 1st June and created by the Mayors of North Charleston and Charleston in the... [read more]

Rich Sutherland | May 19th '15
I'm a big fan of museums. I believe they should be free, but I also believe that the public and businesses should give what they can. I grew up with my local museums, visiting them as a family quite regularly. These ranged from the Maritime Museum to the... [read more]

A right royal baby day!

Thursday 19th March is Poultry Day, which seems a bit fowl. *chortle* A celebration of not just chickens but also turkeys, ducks, geese and the like, I still couldn't think of anything to write about. I wasn't in the mood to decide which feathered... [read more]

It's-a-me, Mario!

Rich Sutherland | Mar 10th '15
Did you know that Mario, the porky plumber who decided to change careers to save princesses and maim small monsters, has an entire day dedicated to him? Mario Day, perhaps the most energetic and addictive occasion in the DOTY calendar, takes place on... [read more]
