Did you know that today is National Chocolate Cupcake Day? Yes, really. It was a theme for a cooking segment on the Today Show.

October is also National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (hope you all got your mammogram), and it’s National Caramel Month.

Who makes up these things? I don’t know, but I’m suspecting that some council somewhere dreams them up–some just for fun, others to support and raise awareness of worthy causes, and still others so retailers can have sales with a theme. There are several celebrations related to our beloved hobby that perhaps you want to note for the upcoming months.

February is National Embroidery Month. March is National Craft Month. April is National Decorating Month, and of course we all know that September is National Sewing Month.

If you belong to a sewing or quilting guild, these special commemorative months make for some interesting meeting or special event themes. Or you can note them just for fun or silliness, or an excuse to do something you might not do on another day. Personally, I’m looking forward to National Candy Corn Day on October 30, and I shall do my part to indulge! I LOVE candy corn, and am extremely resentful that it’s usually available only for a short time each year.

It’s OK to make your own special day, week or month and share it with others. Hmmm…I wonder if there’s a National Fabric Buying week?
