Calendar Days—June 2013

Last month I continued my end of the month post listing all the crazy special days in the coming month. I always share this info on the last Thursday of every month. So be sure to drop by. Today I’m going to continue with the upcoming crazy and normal holidays in the month of June.

Using the calendar for blog post or even article ideas is a great way to jumpstart your creativity. It's also a fun writing prompt idea. 

Calendar days are also great conversation starters for social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Now let's do a little brainstorming for next month. What are some of your favorite days from the list and how do you propose using them?


  1. Thanks for the ideas, Edie. I also see you have gone to moderated comments. I think you have taken the Captcha off your blog? I would like to do that but can't seem to figure that out, any direction? Thanks.

    1. Tammie, go to SETTINGS and click on COMMENTS AND MODERATION. Choose the box that says ALWAYS for comment moderation and choose NO under word verification. That's where the captcha thing is located.

      Thanks for stopping by! Blessings, E

  2. Candy month and National Fruit and Vegetables Month. A little weird, but I guess that makes for a balanced diet!

    1. Ellen, some of my favorites are international panic day, kitchen klutzes of America Day, and repeat day. I think I can have fun with those! Thanks for stopping by, Blessings, E

  3. The celebrating never ends. Who knew? Looking forward to National Bubba day:)

    1. I know what you mean. The possibilities are endless...
      Thanks for stopping by! Blessings, E

  4. Lots of writing opportunities here. Thanks for sharing these wacky days!

    1. Thanks for taking time to drop by! Do you remember when we tried to find ideas for articles? Now they seem to drop out of the sky and crowd my brain. Love you! E

  5. June 4th is Hug Your Cat AND Old Maid's Day? Sounds about right. I'd love to work that into my novel but I think it might be a tad too obvious.

    Thanks for the list, Edie!

    1. Sharyn, that's too funny! I didn't even notice that. Thanks for stopping by! Blessings, E

  6. Candy Month & Fruits & Veggies Month - an odd mix
    I see there is a VCR Day - They (whoever "they" are) need to update to Blu-Ray Day :-)

  7. Just finished a post for later in June based on these days. It spawned some weird, wonderful stuff. Mind if I thank you with a link to your blog when I post?

  8. This list is GREAT! I had never even looked up, much less thought to use, the different wacky "days" like this. Fabulous list and this should be fun! *G*

  9. Too funny and yes, lots to write about. Who knew? Steve Laube mentioned your list too!
