I live in a small town in southern Wisconsin (population around 1600). I love animals, especially cats and dogs. I like gardening (both vegetables and flowers) and I like to read. I work in the garden center at a Walmart in Madison, WI. In the off season, I work in back-to-school, Halloween, Christmas, etc. AKA - "Seasonal". But garden season is by far my favorite.

    International Bat Appreciation Day. Not baseball bats, but the flying mammals that eat all the mosquitoes. I’ve always appreciated bats and I wish we had more of them around.

    Today is:

    National Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day. For those who work from home, they can do that. I don’t think Walmart managers would allow us to wear pajamas to work.

    National Bean Counter Day. National Bean Counter Day on April 16th is every accountant’s favorite day of the year. After the flutter and the flurry of preparing taxes right up until the stroke of midnight, these diligent number crunchers are well past due for a day off.The term “bean counter” hasn’t always referred to our reliable accountants. Like many phrases, it was much more literal before it morphed into the idiom we use today. Not unlike, meeting a customer at the deli counter or fabric counter to complete their order, clerks met consumers at the bean counter. However, over time, the phrase became attributed to accountants who watched each and every penny (or bean) that went in and out of the business.

    National Clean Out Your Medicine Cabinet Day. My medicine cabinet doesn’t need cleaning out, but my refrigerator sure does! Also, I have to take my laundry out of the clothes dryer.

    I want to thank everyone for their well wishes and prayers for my cousin, Becky, as she deals with her breast cancer diagnosis. Although she doesn’t have internet (she doesn’t even have a computer), she will see you well wishes because I did a copy and paste and put all your comments on a document which I will mail to her. I think she is going to be blown away by all your support for someone you don’t even know.

    It seems like you can name anything in the world (or even in outer space) and they have a “holiday” to celebrate or observe it.

    Today is:

    Purple Up! Day. Purple Up! Day on April 15th recognizes some of the military’s most unsung heroes – their children. The day encourages everyone to wear purple representing all branches of the military and showing unity with each other.

    Get To Know Your Customers Day. If it seems like we already had this “holiday” this year, it’s because we have. It happens on the third Thursday of every quarter. It’s observed in January, April, July and October. I won’t be getting to know any customers today because it’s my day off.

    National Banana Day. I like bananas but don’t have any in the house right now, so I guess I won’t be eating one today. I guess I’ll have an orange instead.

    National High Five Day

    National Titanic Remembrance Day

    National Rubber Eraser Day

    National Tax Day. Which has been postponed again this year due to COVID.

    National Glazed Spiral Ham Day

    National Take A Wild Guess Day. Is it a calculated risk to celebrate National Take A Wild Guess Day each year on April 15th? It might depend upon how you observe the day. Will you guess how many jelly beans are in a jar? Or will you be estimating your taxes? The day could be full of hunches and guesses depending on how you spend it. As a contestant in the game of life, sometimes our only option is to venture a guess at what’s around the corner. The day challenges us to take a stab at making wild predictions. Sometimes we get better at guessing as we go, or we have a knack for it right away. No matter the case, it’s just a wild guess. Don’t take it seriously.
