Celebration . . .C’mon and Celebrate

Wondering what to celebrate? Well can I help you out!
I came across one of those calendars that list all the “National {fill in the blank} Month”

Wow is October busy (oh, Happy Pumpkin Cheesecake Day). I was amazed at all the celebrations (Happy National Pasta Week). I have not looked to see if Hallmark has any of these somewhat obscure holidays (Happy Clock Month) covered with cards or if they leave them totally up to us to be creative (Happy Respect Life Week).

So I, out of the many options (Happy Cookbook Month), have decided to honor two off the list:

Happy Pretzel Month and Happy Pet Peeve Week !

Pretzel Facts:
For New Years, children in Germany wear pretzels around their neck for good luck.

A salt-less pretzel is called a “baldie”

Can be used as Christmas Tree toppers. . . well sometimes . . .well, in Austria

The Mid-Atlantic states are sometimes referred to as the “Pretzel Belt of America”

And

Choking on a pretzel caused President George Bush to briefly lose consciousness.


Happy Pet Peeve Week!

Pet Peeves huh? A whole week to think about and celebrate having them? Hummm . . .

Well here are a few of mine:

Toilet paper upside down on the holder
Bag less trash cans
Salt less pretzels
Misusing the words was and were
Ending words with an “r” that is not there {potato”r”; idea”r”)
Calling the police the “popo” – uggggg
The term “my bad”

So, what about you, what pet peeve do you wish to “celebrate” this week?
Go ahead, unleash them . . .

The toilet paper is a good one. Pictures hung up so high you can't see them very good. When people only call me when they need me. And they were acting like they wanted to talk to me. Gossiping horribly.

I never will eat a saltless pretzel without thinking of you :)

I think that you would become very peeved with me very fast.

This is a great post! You would be peeved with my MIL. She always adds an "r" to the end of words that it doesn't belong in. We always laugh about it!
