-- Positive Postcard Day was created to remind you to join the Positive Postcard Project which affirms your most positive traits. Here's how Positive Postcards work... First, write down seven positive traits about yourself. Next, obtain seven postcards. Write a note to yourself about each trait on a different postcard. When you are done, you will have seven postcards, each with a note to yourself about one of the positive traits you listed.

💌 What is Positive Postcard Day?



Run up the Flagpole and See if Anyone Salutes Day
- Be creative today. Use this day to try and test new ideas and concepts. Don't limit the ideas to business applications. In your personal life, try out a new dress or clothing style, perhaps a different haircut. Or, maybe buy a new house flag and run it up the flagpole to see if anyone salutes... or even notices.

National Cream Puff Day (1540)
- Cream puffs are rich desserts around since 1880 in the United States. However, the first cream puff originated sometime during the 1540s in Europe when Catherine de Medici's pastry chef created the baked puffed shells for her husband, France's Henry II.

Science Fiction Day
- Celebrated by enjoying a day of science fiction fun - such as watching science fiction movies, watching history on UFO's and even having some classroom fun by having a science fiction day at school. We are encouraged on this day to make ourselves aware of the possibilities of space, our universe and the idea of aliens.

Happy Mew Year for Cats Day
- Felines have a day for themselves to celebrate the mewness of a new time.

National Motivation and Inspiration Day (2001)
- Kevin L. McCrudden founded National Motivation and Inspiration Day as January 2nd of every year and had H. Res 308 passed by The United States Congress on December 18, 2001. It is intended as a day for people to create reasonable goals they can establish for the year, like New Year's Resolutions and make a plan to complete them.

55-MPH Speed Limit Day (1974)
- Today marks the anniversary of the 55 MPH speed limit on highways, made law by President Nixon on January 2, 1974. This caused a bit of controversy back then, but Nixon ultimately signed the bill to conserve energy during the oil crisis in the '70s. The idea behind the law was to improve driving efficiency.

Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy Day (1941)
- Recorded on January 2nd, 1941, a major hit for The Andrews Sisters and an iconic World War II tune. This song can be considered an early jump blues recording. The song is ranked #6 on Songs of the Century.

Working Women in the White House Day (1890)
- President Benjamin Harrison welcomes Alice Sanger as the first female White House staffer on this day in 1890. Alice Sanger's appointment may have been an olive branch to the growing women's suffrage movement gathering momentum during Harrison's presidency.
