August 28: National Bow Tie Day

Fred Astaire with bow tieAugust 28 is a very dapper day: it’s National Bow Tie Day! You can go dressed to the nines in the full tux with black or white bow tie look or go more casual with plaid or polka dots. Either way, be sure to break out the bow ties today. Have fun! ūüôā


“You turned my wailing¬†into dancing;
Groucho Marx bow tie    you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
Lord¬†my God, I will praise¬†you forever.”

Psalm 30:11-12

August 27: National Banana Lovers Day

bananaI don’t know about you, but I love a plain, perfect, ripe banana. And then, the things you can make with them! You can chop a fresh banana in a salad or make a peanut butter and banana sandwich. You can make banana pudding or banana splits for dessert, and you can always bake those nasty leftover bananas into some seriously delicious banana bread! And nothing beats a warm, gooey, banana and nutella crepe!

“Blessed are all who fear the¬†Lord,
who walk in obedience to him.
You will eat the fruit of your labor;
blessings and prosperity will be yours.

Psalm 128:1-2

P.S. August 27 is also Just Because Day!
