Hungry? Then you've come to the right month! National celebrations in May are dedicated to salsa, salad and barbeque (and we do love our Kansas City barbeque) --- plus grapefruit and kiwi, carrots and cauliflower and even sweet Vidalia onions!
If that doesn't satisfy your cravings, then mark your calendar for May 16, which is National Pizza Party Day, May 22 for National Vanilla Pudding Day or end the month on May 27th with National Grape Popsicle Day. Still hungry? You can also celebrate raisins, vinegar or our favorite day, May 11, which is National Eat What You Want Day!
If you'd like less calorie-enhanced events to celebrate this month, try saluting the men (and women) in blue during National Police Appreciation Week from May 11-17 or members of the military on Armed Forces Day on May 17.
One week with a very serious nature to it is National Hurricane Preparedness Week, May 25-31. That's the time to carefully inspect your roof --- one of four of the most vulnerable aspects of your home --- to make sure it can withstand severe weather. See National Hurricane Preparedness Week for a roof checkup list from DaVinci Roofscapes to help you out.
Finally, here are a few extra dates we know you'll want to mark on your calendar ... just because they're so unusual!
- May 3 - Lumpy Rug Day
- May 4 - International Respect for Chickens Day
- May 8 - No Socks Day
- May 23 - World Turtle Day
