Sometimes, you just need a nap. So if you’re out and about on the last day of February and feel like resting your eyes for a minute (or ten), just go for it! And if anyone gives you guff about it, point to the calendar. It’s not a cure-all excuse, but it might be fun with family or friends.

If you’re tired of not finding the right holiday for you, this is a great opportunity. Just make it up! Find something you enjoy and make this your day for celebrating it. And if you’ve got kids, even better because they’d probably love to create their own holiday too. Who knows, maybe you’ll discover some new personal tradition this way.

Honestly, you should be looking up at the sky more often. It’s amazing, day and night. Maybe use this as an excuse to go on a camping trip to where you can get a good view of the Milky Way, or just make some time in your busy day to watch the clouds from your office window. Wherever you are, whenever you are, you can find a way to celebrate this fun holiday.

If you’re the superstitious type, then keep an eye on the calendar for May 29. This strange holiday traces its origins from old tales of putting linen in the pantry for good luck. So, for the modern equivalent, put your pillow on the fridge. Does it work? Find out and let us know!

I’m sure you love movies like the rest of us, but have you ever gone to an actual drive in? Find one in your local area and give it a shot. Make it a cute date night or a simple excuse to hang out with friends and watch a good show.

World UFO Day

Looking for little green men in your backyard? You’re not alone. July 2 (and sometimes June 24) is dedicated to watching the night skies for strange phenomena. If you’re not into looking for ETs, maybe just go stargazing instead. Or maybe stay inside and watch a good movie featuring your favorite fictional spacemen.
