National Day of the Cowboy

Saddle up and get ready to ride into the sunset with the excitement of the Wild West! Cowboys are the ultimate symbol of grit and adventure.


A guide to celebrating Jul 27th

Let’s kickstart our day with some cowboy flair. Put on your best cowboy hat, round up some friends, and head to a local western-themed restaurant for a hearty brunch. Embrace the cowboy spirit by trying your hand at lassoing or line dancing, even if it’s just in your backyard.

After brunch, why not take your houseplant for a walk? Grab your potted friend and stroll through a nearby park or garden. Soak up nature’s beauty and don’t forget to snap a selfie with your leafy companion.

As the day progresses, it’s time to celebrate National Scotch Day. Have a makeshift whiskey tasting at home by gathering different types of whiskey or scotch from your liquor cabinet. Host a blind taste test and see if you can distinguish between the flavors.

For the gamers among us, commemorate Gary Gygax Day by organizing a Dungeons & Dragons session with friends. Get creative with character creation and dive into a fantasy world of your own making.

Spread some love on National Love is Kind Day by performing random acts of kindness. Write heartfelt notes to loved ones, help a neighbor with chores, or donate to a local charity. Small gestures can make a big impact.

When hunger strikes, whip up some homemade chicken fingers in honor of National Chicken Finger Day. It’s a simple yet delicious meal that everyone will enjoy. Pair it with your favorite dipping sauces and have a finger-licking good time.

Feeling adventurous? Try your hand (or rather, your feet) at walking on stilts for National Walk On Stilts Day. Practice caution and start with low stilts in a safe, open area. It’s a fun way to challenge yourself and master a new skill.

Finally, wind down the day by celebrating Norfolk Day in a coastal-inspired manner. Head to a nearby beach or lake for a relaxing evening picnic with seafood or fish ‘n’ chips. Listen to the sound of the waves and bask in the seaside atmosphere.

From embracing your inner cowboy to spreading love and kindness, these shared themes offer a whirlwind of activities to enjoy throughout the day. So gather your friends and family, unleash your creativity, and make the most of this motley mix of holidays. Cheers to a day filled with laughter, adventure, and unforgettable memories.
