6 Holidays To Celebrate In July​ BESIDES Independence Day

Canada Day and Independence Day are cool and all... But what about July 27th: Take Your Houseplant For A Walk Day?


July is a pretty wonderful month. The weather is perfect to go explore the outdoors or go for a dip in the pool. You have holidays like Canada Day and the Fourth of July. People celebrate with pride and great food... But there are some other holiday gems that are in the background just waiting to be recognized.

1. July 10th: Teddy Bear Picnic Day

The name of the holiday makes it pretty obvious how you're supposed to celebrate. There isn't a lot of information on this official holiday's origins, but there's speculation that it has to do with a TV show from the 1950s called "Teddy Bears' Picnic".

2. July 13th: Embrace Your Geekness Day

You can thank the good folks at Wellcat Holidays for this one! While this is something you should be doing every day (in my humble opinion), July 13th is the day to celebrate it to the max! Dress up like a Stormtrooper, tell everyone to live long and prosper, or let the world know that traveling through space and time is your shtick. Fly your geek flag with pride and remind everyone that you solemnly swear that you are up to no good.

3. July 13th: National French Fry Day

Maybe "embracing geekness" isn't your thing, but you know what probably is? French fries. Who doesn't love french fries? According to holidaysinsights.com, this holiday came to fruition around the early 2000s. Sure, it's not something that's widely recognized, but any day that gives you a reason to eat something delicious is something worth celebrating.

4. July 20th: Moon Day

Moon Day is meant to honor the day that man first stepped on the moon in 1969. Make this a day that you party under the light of the silvery moon! Unless, of course, you're behind the theory that the U.S. faked the moon landing. In which case, give a round of applause for great cinematography.

5. July 24th: National Tequila Day

This one is like National French Fry Day–tt's not officially recognized, but it's well-known. Grab a couple of friends and feel less guilty about taking shots one after the other in the spirit of celebration.

6. July 31st: National Mutt Day

Dogs deserve love every day, but this day is one that mutts can shine. If you have a mutt for a pup or know somebody with one, make sure to give them some extra love today!

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire.

One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
