It takes months, sometime years, of planning to make your wedding day perfect. There are so many overwhelming decisions that have to be made from the weddings rings to the honeymoon destination and a million other things in between. I went to Red Heart.com and found a dozen brilliant crochet projects that can be worn (or held) by the bride, wedding party, mother-of-the-bride/groom and there is even an 18” wedding doll. You may not have time to make something for yourself, but I bet there is someone special that would love to make a hand-crafted gift for the happy couple. It could be the start of a family heirloom to be passed down for generations.

I was looking at the calendar recently and noticed that just about every day of the week is named after something or someone. Some examples of this are National Chocolate Covered Cherry Day, National Spouses Day and National Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day. I think some of them are silly, but one day that stands out to me is National Hugging Day. In 1986 Kevin Zaborney declared January 21st as National Hugging Day. He noticed that people seemed a little down after the Holidays and thought a hug might lift spirits. He did not think the idea would take off, but it did and in a big way. It is not only recognized in the United States, but in many other countries. Everyone needs a hug every once-in-a-while, right? His only advise is that you should ask permission before hugging a complete stranger.
