No Housework Day, April 7

If you and your roommate aren’t neat freaks, No Housework Day might be a great excuse to fail room checks. The pile of clothes covering the floor, the full trashcan in the corner -- all of it can wait till after this most sacred of days. 


Siblings Day, April 10

Today is the day to meet up with your brothers and sisters and let them know how much they mean to you. Go on a hike, go see a movie, or get lunch. Just do something together. They may annoy you sometimes, but you are the only one that gets to mess with them. You have each other’s backs. If you aren’t close, maybe it is time for some reconciliation. Talk about the times you played in the tree house or pulled their hair. Reminisce, reconcile, and enjoy the special time you have with them.


Blah Blah Blah Day, April 17

Some of us hear this every day in class, but contrary to the title this day is not the day to annoy everyone by saying "blah blah blah" -- no matter how much fun that might be. This is a day to complete all the tasks that have been nagging you. That car wash you have put off since before snow days, the weight you were going to lose after Christmas or maybe your dream of writing the next great American novel are all goals and tasks that have been put off. Work on them today. Maybe it will be boring, but at the end of the day you will feel accomplished. And if nothing else have a good night sleep.


Earth Day, April 22

Earth day is when you make up for all the littering you do throughout the year, you litterbug. Get some friends together and clean up a road, plant trees, take a hike and simply enjoy and give back to the beauty around you. Creation points us towards the Creator and maybe you spend this Earth Day thanking Him for all he has given you. Maybe even discuss ways you and your friends can learn to be good stewards and take care of the planet we have been blessed with. 


Talk like Shakespeare Day, April 23

For those Shakespearean poets at heart,
today’s the day to show you're smart.
For everything and at all times, 
you must speak in Shakespearean rhymes. 
Learn to use the language of old
To make sure your story is told.
Instead of "Hey" or "How do you do?"
A "Good morrow, sir" and "How doth thee do?"
