September: The Month of Falling Holidays
If you were to look at a calendar for September, you might see that is a bit light on major holidays. Labor Day, Patriots Day and California Admission Day are the ones that most people are aware of. Out of the thirty days in the month, there are only four without any sort of minor event going on. We might as well call this the month of "falling" holidays.
The Sunday after Labor Day is known as National Grandparents Day. This day was started in the 1970s by Marian McQuaid as an incentive for people to visit their elderly relatives. It was made into a national holiday by Former President Jimmy Carter in 1978. Celebrate this day by visiting relatives or stopping by a local nursing home and bring smiles to several people who may not have relatives close by who can visit them. If you live far away from your elderly relatives who live in the Chico area you can always send them a smile with flowers through Little Red Hen Floral More. Our Flower Shop offers same-day delivery Monday through Friday
The following day is California Admission Day. This holiday is meant to celebrate the day that California became the 31st state on September 9, 1850, during the days of the Gold Rush. Native Californians and transplants alike know there is no beating California for its beautiful scenery and sunshine. For readers in Chico who want to show off their love for the Golden State head into the Gift Shop and Vintage Stores and check out our wide selection of California home decor including some breathtaking wooden signs!
September also has some fun food-based holidays. The 5th of September is National Cheese Pizza Day. Followed a few weeks later on September 18th by National Cheeseburger Day. 93% of American eat at least one whole pizza every month. Make sure you have the right tool for the job by stopping by Little Red Hen Kitchen Store and getting a new pizza cutter. This makes it a perfect day to enjoy a delicious cheese pizza or burger. If you are in need of a new spatula for grilling you can pick them up from Little Red Hen Kitchen Store.
September 22nd is National Ice Cream Cone Day. This holiday is the anniversary of the first patent for what would become known as the ice cream cone by Antonio Valvono in 1902. It started as a biscuit cup before eventually becoming the fried bit of goodness it is today. Before you all scream for ice cream, why not consider making some of your own? Stop by Little Red Hen Store to pick up an Ice Cream Maker, also available online.
There are many many holidays one can celebrate in the month of September. Take a look at a Calendar to find ones that you might be interested in. Celebrating non-traditional holidays can be a fun way to start a tradition of your own.
