Welcome to April!

And so we've made it the fourth month of the Western calendar year. Like all of the months in our calendar, the month of April originates from ancient Rome. It's usually associated with spring in the northern hemisphere, and autumn in the southern hemisphere. April is a month full of celebrations and commemorations around the world such as Easter, April Fool's Day, St George's Day, ANZAC Day, and special remembrance days for the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986 and the sinking of that infamous ship, the RMS Titanic, in 1912.

However, did you know that April has some other special holidays too? Holidays that are a little on the weird and wacky side? Here are some of them!

April 3
World Party Day

Today aims to achieve social change and harmony by encouraging people to celebrate life by partying. So why not throw a party for your family and friends and ask them to bring their friends and coworkers along?
You could also organise a street party. Peace begins at home and by being neighbourly. Spend time with your neighbours and celebrate your neighbourhood.

Read a Road Map Day

When was the last time you picked up a map and used it for directions? No, not a GPS or a map app, but an actual paper map? Celebrate today by taking a short road trip and using only paper maps to guide you.

April 10
Siblings Day

Spend some time with your siblings today. If you live away from them, why not call them and talk to them? Or what about paying them a surprise visit?

April 11
Submarine Day

Today, learn more about the art and science of submarines.
You can also celebrate the day by consuming as many submarine sandwiches as you can! And why not listen to the Beatles' Yellow Submarine song all day long?!

Haiku Poetry Day

Haiku is a type of short poetry that is usually three sentences long. First popularized in Japan in the 17th century, Haiku as a poetry genre has been adopted by many languages around the world. In English, the genre first became mainstream in the early 20th century. Celebrate today by learning how to write your own haikus. Or pick up an anthology of haiku poetry and spend some time reading haikus.

Zipper Day

We all tend to take for granted most things around us. The humble zipper that is holding up your pants, skirt, or dress right now is one of those things. So the zipper rightly deserves a special day of its own! Spend the day contemplating on other similar objects that are simple, but vital to our day to day lives.

And so that's a whole year of very special holidays done and dusted!

There's been so much to celebrate, from Talking Like Yoda Day, Middle Child Day, World Juggling Day, Fight Procrastination Day and Vanilla Cupcake Day, to days celebrating dentists, Super Mario, bunsen burners, Daleks, bicarbonate of soda, asking stupid questions, and fresh breath! We've had a whole year celebrating the bizarre, the unique, the weird, the wacky and the wonderful!

Life is a celebration. Why just stick to standard holidays such as Christmas and Easter, when we can celebrate every other day? Because every day of the year is definitely worth celebrating!
