Some other things to commemorate this weekend

Some other things to commemorate this weekend

The next few days are newsworthy, to be sure, what with a presidential inauguration, Saturday’s National Cathedral service and women’s marches taking place in Washington, D.C. and communities across the country.

For those of us who would like to think about something other than politics for the weekend, we’re suggesting several noteworthy, if perhaps not newsworthy, commemorations this weekend.

Friday, widely known as Inauguration Day, is also National Cheese Lover’s Day. “Don’t feel bleu,” say the writers of the National Day Calendar site (which also points out, following a brief history of cheese, that March 5 is National Cheese Doodle Day, April 12 is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day and July 30 is National Cheesecake Day.

We were particularly pleased to see that Saturday, January 21 is Squirrel Appreciation Day (it’s also National Granola Bar Day, which seems an appropriate pairing).

And in a bit of good timing, January 21, the day after the inauguration, is also National Hugging Day. Reach out and tell someone you love them, no matter their politics.

Somehow the little squirrel heard that there were going to be a lot of nuts around on Friday! 🙂

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
