If like me you don’t work, you probably are in no mood to bring undue attention to this fact , and thus will not be overly whooping it up   this Labor Day.   “Here’s to all the people who go out every day and put in an honest day’s work’’ may not slip comfortably out of your lips, and even if it does , it may frankly not sound that good to people who actually do labor. Who, like Margaret, maybe even are laboring today. On Labor Day.


   Luckily this year you have several other holidays to choose from.


   September 7th is National Acorn Squash Day, National Salami Day, and National Beer Lover’s Day (not to be confused with National Beer Day, April 7th, celebrating the day in 1933, the first day in 13 years, that people could legally buy, sell, and drink beer.


   From the Examiner:


   Have you heard the latest “buzz?” According to a Foodimentary report published on Sept. 7 , one of the most refreshing holidays of the entire year is finally here. After a year of waiting, one of the best beverage holidays is taking place right now and Americans are in the mood to celebrate. Hip "hops" hooray - Sept. 7 is National Beer Lover’s Day in the U.S.A.

The annual event was created by John-Bryan Hopkins. In an online interview, Hopkins said he came up with the idea on a whim a few years ago. While others were celebrating National Acorn Squash Day on Sept. 7, Hopkins was in the mood for a something a bit more refreshing, like a tasty beer and came up with the idea of National Beer Lover's Day. Needless to say, the annual holiday has become quite popular over the years.



I remember previous  Labor Days that fell on September 7ths and the ridiculous agony of having to scarf down a few acorn squashes (my least favorite squash)  just so as not to embarrass myself at a Labor Day picnic where I deftly changed my hosts’ attention to an alternate holiday.



From the ‘’National Day Calendar”:


National Acorn Squash Day is observed annually on September 7th  This day celebrates a food holiday of a winter squash that is also known to some as a pepper squash.

Even though considered a winter squash, acorn squash belongs to the same species as all summer squashes including zucchini and yellow crookneck squash.

The acorn squash that is dark green in color, often with a splotch of orange on it’s side or top, is the most common variety, however there are newer varieties including the Golden Acorn and the White Acorn.   They can also be variegated in color.

The shape of the squash resembles that of it’s name, an acorn.  


   I never knew about National Salami Day, and still didn’t til I just looked it up, but I think I will go with National Beer Lover’s Day, because I love getting drunk, especially on beer. It quells my anxiety over  not having work, being on the dole so to speak.

Hooray For Salami Day!

Hope you've got big plans for a evening out on the town, eating some delicious salami. If you prefer a relaxing meal at home, your local grocer should have a variety of delightful salamis to choose from. Or, if you're super lazy, order that pizza with pepperoni, one of the more popular types of salami. No matter what, have a great Salami Day, and wish all your friends a Happy Salami Day as well, as one good sausage party deserves another.

Salami Day Fan Art!

So the folks over at Proartweb Studio decided to make some amazing Salami Day fan art!

Uh, well, I'll have a beer today. Just remember my name has an extra A.

I will have a squash (yuck) and some salami beforehand, so as not to get too giddy too soon on an empty tummy.

I hope Arthur reads this,it will cheer him up enough to make a beer run for himself and any amish widows he meets on the way to the liquour mart.

I actually love acorn squash. Try baking it and filling it with nuts and raisins. Macadamias work very well.

Squash, salami and beer sounds like a good combination for flatulence... throw in some legumes and perhaps we have the foundation for a National Fart Day.  R&L ;-)

Makes a certain amount of sense i must admit jmac but that won't be for another five months.

January is filled with a wide variety of holidays. From New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day and National Trivia Day to National Chocolate Cake Day, January also has one of the most unusual “holidays” of the year. Fair warning - if you are the faint of "fart," this particular holiday may not be for you.

National Pass Gas Day

On the heels of National Bean Day, Jan. 7 is National Pass Gas Day. Yep, you read that correctly. One day a year is devoted to, well, flatulence.

Certain foods like beans, broccoli, cabbage and eggs, may make people gassier than others. Whether intentional or accidental, silent or otherwise, everyone lets one rip from time-to-time. In fact, most people fart 14 times a day according to Dr. Billy Goldberg. Heck, even the Academy-award winning actress Whoopi Goldberg proudly passes gas on national television!
