National Potato Chip Day and other quirky celebrations

March 14th was National Potato Chip Day and we celebrated by having a Potato Chip Party. That's right, we had over 100 different varieties of potato chips for the kids to taste-test. The boys and girls enjoyed barbeque, salt and vinegar, cheese, hot, sour cream and onion, ruffles and more. We played games such as Hot Potato and Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head Contests. The younger kids colored pictures of potato chips. Potato Chips are America's favorite snack foods and one of Zaria's favorite snacks.

After having the party, I started researching other strange holidays. Below is a list of some unusual holidays that you may want to celebrate:

January is National Oatmeal Month
February 4th is Bubble Gum Day
March (Potato Chips)
April is National Kite Month
May 1 is Mother Goose Day
June is Potty Training Awareness Month
July 7th is Tell The Truth Day
August 8-14 is Exercise With Your Child Week
September 23rd is Hug A Vegetarian Day
October 15 is National Grouch Day
November 18 is Push-Button Phone Day
December 7 is National Cotton Candy Day

I know. I know. I'm just a big, goofy kid. LOL. What is your favorite zany celebration?
