Let’s Celebrate September 30

According to the National Calendar Day website, September 30 is a day to celebrate some very fun things! Of course, it’s the last day of September, but it’s also a day to celebrate people, and chewing gum, and mud packs, and hot mulled cider. Let’s get started!

September 30

National Love People Day encourages all of us to lift up others with the healing power of unconditional love. Every single one of us is feeling stressed during these tough times. We can make the world a better place by loving each other, whole-heartedly.

Ways to Celebrate

  • Call a friend who is going through a rough time and lend an ear or a shoulder. Listening is easy to do and it goes a long way in making people feel loved.
  • Visit a shut in. Offer to shop for someone who can’t drive.
  • Practice generosity. Take some non-perishables to a local food bank. Donate some clothing you no longer wear to a shelter.
  • Show your appreciation. Say thank you to the store clerk. Smile at a stranger. Offer a complement to someone… anyone. This kind of gratitude lifts spirits. And it’s free!

It’s Chewing Gum Day. Did you know that people have been chewing gum for over 5,000 years? Almost 15 years ago, a British archology student found 5,000-year-old chewing gum made from the tar of tree bark and it had teeth marks in it. Wow!

Ways to Celebrate

  • Chew some gum!
  • Take a picture of the biggest bubble you can make and post it on social media.
  • Buy a bubble gum flavored product: ice cream, tooth paste, shampoo, soap.

Today is also Mud Pack Day. Give yourself permission to get muddy! Mud packs are made of therapeutic clay. When used on the face, mud packs increase blood circulation. They also ease pain in joints and muscles.

Ways to Celebrate

  • Give yourself a mud pack. You can find one here (this one claims to shrink and tighten pores).
  • Get together with some girlfriends and enjoy a spa day. Some spas offer mud baths.

Lastly (but probably BEST), today is Hot Mulled Cider Day. There is nothing better than mulled cider on a chilly autumn day.
