Plan Your Epitaph Day
- Dedicated to the proposition that a forgettable gravestone is a fate worse than death. Because, if you do nothing, someone else will put your name and dates on your gravestone, period. If you are terribly unlucky, they'll add something like "Dearly missed" or "Beloved Cousin" or maybe even worse. Source
Sorry Charlie Day
- a day to reflect on all the times we have been rejected in our lives and how we have survived. It happens to everyone. The important thing to remember is how you have "bounced" back and what you have learned from all those rejections. If you know someone who has recently been rejected, you can help them with your wisdom and experience. Source
