This is one of those amazingly random days where you can’t help but wonder why on earth someone would create it. It’s November 2, so we could be celebrating All Souls’ Day, the second day of Day of the Dead / Dia de los Muertos, or even Traffic Director’s Day, but . . . I’m celebrating Look For Circles Day.
Yes, circles. I’m certain I searched for circles as a preschooler, learning my shapes, and I definitely remember taking pictures of various circles and polygons found in everyday life for my high school geometry class, but I don’t think I’ve really looked for circles since then.
I’m making up other celebration ideas as I go along, but I’m thinking that we can just consider sphere’s 3D circles and eat some celebratory oranges, meatballs, or crackers and bologna; play ball (basket-, soccer-, base-, etc., but not American foot-); or take a long bubble bath. Sound good?
“He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth,
and its people are like grasshoppers.
He stretches out the heavens like a canopy,
and spreads them out like a tent to live in.”
