February 11th Holidays
Everyday is full of funny, strange and sometimes serious holidays.
- Electrific Day
February 11th is the birthday of Thomas Alva Edison, the inventor of the light bulb along with being the holder of 1090+ U.S. Patents, and founder of General Electric,.
- Get Out Your Guitar Day
This one is pretty explanatory. We couldn’t find a whole lot of history on who started it, but who cares, just get out your guitar and play!
- Grandmother Achievement Day
Again, we can’t find a good history on this day but nonetheless it’s listed on multiple sites as a holiday today.
- National Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk Day
Today is a day to think on the “positive side of life.” Today the glass it half full.
- National Inventors’ Day
Today we recognize those who are inventors. Lucky Thomas Edison had two holidays today! Without these progressive folks in our lives we would not have electric, heat, toilets and so many other wonderful inventions, including internet!
- National Make a Friend Day
Go out there today, be social. Really these days you don’t have to even leave the house, you just cick on “friend request.” But, for today’s sakes, talk to someone at a store, the bank, on one of your errands, just be social!
- National Peppermint Patty Day
Observered everyday on the 11th, this day to recognize the Quiggins family who created the Pepperment Patty back in 1840.
- National Shut-in Visitation Day
Some people are isolated and remain homebound due to illness. They may not see a lot of people or have visitors. So go visit someone who you know who is considered a “shut in” and make their day!
- Pro Sports Wives Day
This day was made to recognize the spouses of professional atheletes and all they sacrifice to be the wives or husbands of someone with all the stresses of being a pro athlete.
- Promise Day
Another part of “Love Week” where you recognize the promises and vows you have made to another.
- Satisfied Staying Single Day
Another obvious one. A holiday for those who wish or prefer to stay single. So much attention put on love and marriage but some may just prefer to stay single.
- Tu BiShvat
Tu B’Shevat, the 15th day of the Jewish month of Shevat, is a holiday also known as the New Year for Trees.
- White Shirt Day
