National Heroes Day wasn’t founded too long ago and is celebrated on October 21. In fact, it began in 2011 in the United Kingdom, when a teacher heard about the death of his childhood friend who fought and died in the war in Afghanistan. This teacher, named Danny Glavin set up fundraisers for a military charity in his friends honor. Later Glavin went on to found The Inspiration Federation and assists the Heroes Day Education Program in schools all over the United Kingdom. I truly believe this is a wonderful program that not only helps spread awareness of the men and woman serving our countries, but also allows us to show our gratitude and support.
One of my very gooHalloweend friends that I went to college with, has been training with the army for many years now. I don’t personally know many people who have fought in the war; however I’ll be reaching out to say hey, not only to commend National Hero’s Day, but Say ‘Hey’ Day as well.
Say ‘Hey’ Day falls on October 25. Commemorate this silly day by saying hey to every person you see! Strangers and friends alike will smile after your friendly gesture of hello. Have a conversation with someone, talk about the weather, and better yet talk about all your fun plans for Halloween.
I have a tradition every year on Halloween, October 31. I go out with Donna and her kid’s, trick or treating. It is the best way to gather lots of candies, besides the kids are always willing to give up the candy they don’t like. Candy is candy, and candy is always delicious.
