Column: June busting all over in terms of ‘holidays’




Dang. Last Friday was National Doughnut Day, and I missed it. Well, technically I didn’t miss it, but I didn’t learn of it until late in the afternoon thereby missing half the experience.

It was like going for the last doughnut in the box and discovering only one-half of one doughnut because someone was feeling too guilty to eat the entire thing. Had I known in advance about the holiday, I would have made arrangements for an early morning coffee and doughnut splurge. I wouldn’t have felt guilty about it, either.

I carry a pocket calendar where I record appointments, birthdays and so on. It lists most major June holidays and events — Flag Day (June 14), Father’s Day (June 15), summer solstice (June 21) — but National Doughnut Day didn’t make the cut. It is clear that if I want to know beforehand what unusual days are coming up, I will need to do some research on the subject. That is what I have done for the month of June. You might want to write some of this down on your calendar.
