Freierabend is German for celebratory evenings. And it is a perfect word for what I have been trying to do for several years, have more holidays and have more celebrations. I know that I’ve written about holidays here on the blog quite often and that is sure to continue, since I love them so much.
I decided to pick at least two new holidays per month that I want to celebrate, even if it is by myself and to write them all down and make a list and to post it here. I have a few that I really like and want to celebrate and some that I already do celebrate and enjoy. I have a tentative list and need to type it all so that I can get it in the works and posted.
Then of course there are unbirthdays, which are every day of the year that is not your birthday and since this is leap year we all have another day that is an unbirthday or a birthday if you were born on February 29th. So I decided that I would try to celebrate an unbirthday each month, at least once. And since today is the last day of the month I am going to have a little unbirthday celebration right now. Yippee. I almost forgot. 🙂 I am having chocolate cake that I make in a mug in the microwave, from a recipe I found some time ago on the internet. I’m also making hamburgers, which we love. 🙂 And perhaps some salad. What a nice little celebration for us all. Happy happy unbirthday to us! To us!
So that is a goal for this new year:
Have more celebrations. Have more holidays and celebrate them. Make a list of them. Celebrate an unbirthday every month. Cultivate an attitude of celebration and joy and happiness.
