Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbor Day

So today, February 7th is Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbor Day.

You can check on the website www.holidayinsights.com for the complete history.

As mentioned before, I want to have a calendar, complete with all holidays, common and lesser known.  Sort of my way to say, there's always something to celebrate.

Even though I have not been posting every day, I have been working on developing
Sadies Gathering every day since January 14th.  I intend to have the Calendar listing right up beside my Liste des Bete Noire.  I have done everything that I did for the other listings, but for some reason right now, it's now showing.  Hopefully I will figure it out and it will be there by the week's end.

So, in the time being, go wave to all of your neighbors near and far, with all of your fingers.  I find it interesting that day's title includes the phrase, "all your fingers."  Is this a consideration for people that have lost fingers through some horrific accident or disease; or is it a necessary precautionary direction so that people don't go around doing the middle finger wave at their neighbors?  Just something to think about.

Today is also Send a Card to a Friend Day.  So get stocked up on the new $0.46 stamps, and participate in the dwindling snail mail business; or if you are part of the instant gratification crowd, an e-card will suffice.

Only 365 days till the XXII Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia begin!  This will be the first Olympics for the Russian Federation, as the 1980 Summer Olympics were in Moscow, part of the Soviet Union.
A side note, if you haven't seen Miracle, the movie about the US Hockey Team win over the Soviet team, with Kurt Russell, watch it!  One of the best sports movies of all time.

Just in case I am not able to get the Calendar up by tomorrow:

Feb. 8th celebrates Boy Scout Day; the birthday of scouting is Feb. 8, 1910.

also...

Kite Flying Day -   I find it curious that this day is in Feburary and not March.  I think in a lot of places, celebrating this day on Feb. 8th would be uneventful, not to mention pretty cold. 

Any ol' hoo, cheerio for now.
