There are many wonderful things on my calendars for this week.
Firstly, let me say Happy Thanksgiving my American friends. I hope you take the time to find things in your life you are thankful for including the turkey dinner many of you will have on Thursday, and the friends and family you will share it with.
My Crazy Calendar suggests that Thursday is also Celebrate your Unique Talent Day. I’m sure after lots of turkey, and a lot of “suds” to wash it down, some of you may be more than willing to do this! On a more serious note, celebrate those things that make you uniquely you.
Following Thanksgiving Day, is Black Friday and the other sales that continue through the weekend and into Monday. When I worked in an office, it was one of the most requested 4 or 5 day weekends off in the entire year. It was a yearly ritual for some of my co-workers to head south of the border to do their Christmas shopping. I’m a little out of touch now that I work from home, but I understand some of my friends are going again this year, and a lot more will be shopping on-line. Most of my shopping is done so I won’t be in the panic trying to burn up my credit cards this weekend.
My Crazy Calendar has two things written in for Friday – one is “Shopping Reminder Day” and the other is “Buy Nothing Day”. A contradiction for sure! And add in that it is Black Friday, well…
Tomorrow, November 23 is also known as Fibonacci Day. What is that you ask? (I have to admit I had to google it too…) Thanks to http://www.timeanddate.com here is what I found.
November 23 is celebrated as Fibonacci day because when the date is written in the mm/dd format (11/23), the digits in the date form a Fibonacci sequence: 1,1,2,3. A Fibonacci sequence is a series of numbers where a number is the sum of the two numbers before it. For example: 1, 1, 2, 3…is a Fibonacci sequence.
I also received an email yesterday saying my print copies of Grandfather Christmas will be delivered to me on Thursday this week. Yeah!
Hope you all have a great week!
