THAT’S considered a Holiday? Says who? June Holidays


Since the April & May Holidays Posts were so popular I thought I would do it again for the month of June, maybe we will do this all year?  Find all of your June Holidays, Monthly, Weekly and Daily Below

Wanting to remain trendy and current I took a moment to google what events were coming up for the rest of the month.  I was stunned to get the list of what had June as the Official Month to celebrate.  As you will see as you read the list some of the things listed make you wonder do they really deserve a day, much less a month?  Who decided they are so special?  Aren’t there other more important things to celebrate?  And how did this list of things get an entire month instead of merely a day or a week.  Is there a committee?  DO you pay to be recognized?  Is it political?  Please please by all means take a moment and read the list and tell me which are your favorites.
