Announcement: Happy Holidays!

I love this photo! Brightly Shone the Lights by sparksoffire

I love holidays. There’s no denying it. But, let it be known, I don’t just admire the ones that fall in November and December …

I love the obscure holidays–the ones created in order to boost greeting card sales–and the ones intended for nothing more than our own entertainment. (Did you know there is a holiday on the 29th of this month called, “More Herbs, Less Salt Day”?)

I think holidays–even the silly ones that celebrate raisins or promote bad poetry–have a place in home management. Why? Simply put, they encourage us to enjoy the little things. (Or least, they encourage us to think about the little things!)

So here is what I am proposing. Each time the House Honcho Facebook group grows by 5 members, I will create a holiday post that is ripe with ideas for celebrating various days throughout the year. I may even recruit some of my favorite holiday connoisseurs to join the fun and submit their own suggestions.

Today the Facebook group is 564 members strong. If you want to see more holiday action here on the blog, please consider spreading the word. (Or join the group yourself!)

Happy holidays–

    I love every obscure holiday because I've been banned from bringing books into the house, except on holidays — I'm always looking for holidays. I'm looking forward to the 20th! We'll add herbs to our dinnner & buy a book!
