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

july1

The Monthly Holiday List has become one of the Most Popular Posts on this Blog, so expect to find this list here EVERY Month from now on.

Find all of your July 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 some of the  Official Holidays are, you might e surprised too.

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.
