There is a holiday for anything if you dream it. We found these random holidays on Holiday Insights and thought, there is always a reason to celebrate. Check out these eight upcoming holidays and come up with the ultimate excuse to treat yourself.
1: November 3rd – Sandwich Day
Sandwiches are a staple in North America, from a PB&J to the Elvis Presley (peanut butter, bacon, and banana). Celebrate this day by branching out and making a unique sandwich you can call your own. Consider a mac & grilled cheese, B.L.T.A., or adding peanut butter on your burger.
2: November 12 – Chicken Soup for the Soul Day
This is a day to give back to yourself. It’s a celebration of who you are, where you’ve been, and where you’re going. We suggest doing things that make you feel like the best version of yourself, like taking a bubble bath, eating your favorite foods, or spending time alone.
3: November 13th – World Kindness Day
Celebrate this day by donating your time to local charities. We sometimes forget how lucky we are to go to such an amazing school, so let’s put some gratitude in our attitudes and help others in need. Here are some volunteer ideas around Orange: 4Life Animal Rescue, Mary’s Kitchen, Surfrider Foundation, and the Ronald McDonald House.
4: November 16th – Button Day
Buttons can be underrated; they come in all different shapes, colors, textures, and styles. Celebrate this day by jazzing up an old sweater or jacket with some buttons for a fun new look.
5: November 17th – Take A Hike Day
Celebrate this day by literally taking a hike. Go down to Laguna and do the Top Of The World hike or road trip to LA for the day and hike the Hollywood sign. Any way you celebrate, grab some friends and get outside for that perfect Instagram worthy picture.
6: November 23rd – National Espresso Day
Because there’s no such thing as too much caffeine. Go to Starbucks to get your fix, or venture beyond Chapman and explore some of the coffee spots in the Orange Circle. Just make sure not to say “ex-presso.”
7: November 26th – Shopping Reminder Day
You know it’s going to be a good day when someone wants you to shop. This day falls on Cyber Monday, so put this one in your calendar to snatch up all those online steals and deals.
8: November 28th – French Toast Day
Best. Day. Ever. This day gives attention to an often forgotten breakfast food. Celebrate by adding fun ingredients to your french toast to spice it up – consider cocoa pebbles, peanut butter and jelly, Nutella, or sprinkles.
