Hi Coco & Mainers!
School is starting and summer is coming to an end. Sometimes the feeling of fall being around the corner can be fun and can bring feelings of excitement, but it can also bring around the sadness that comes with the end of summer. To help with that feeling (and to help you bide your time before major holidays) below are some minor holidays you can celebrate either by yourself or with your friends and family!
September 10 - Sewing Machine Day
Use this fun holiday to try out a sewing project, or even learn how to use a sewing machine if you haven't already! Check to see if your local Joann's is open to beginner sewing classes, or, if someone you know has a sewing machine, ask if you could borrow it for a small craft!
September 13 - Fortune Cookie Day
The perfect way to celebrate this is simple - go to your favorite Chinese restaurant! Or, if you want to try something that's a bit challenging, make your own fortune cookies with this recipe.
September 19 - National Dance Day
To celebrate this holiday, see if there are any local dance classes available in your city or Zumba classes available. Don't want to dance in public? Check out Just Dance videos on YouTube, where you can dance to some of the classics without a game console!
September 22 - Hobbit Day
This day is perfect for lovers of the works of JRR Tolkien! Set aside some time to watch a movie from The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, or even one of the two The Hobbit movies. Get the party started with some special hobbit recipes, like these Twice Baked Honey Cakes, this recipe for Lembas, or this recipe for Farmer Maggot's Cabbage and Sausage Soup .
