Sticky celebration

wed_english-300x108There’s egg on my face, but for the very best of reasons —

It’s World Egg Day!

Here at the Egg, we’re laying low to avoid the paparazzi, but there are celebrations of some import across the globe.

If you live in Bangladesh, grab one of the more than 5000 free boiled eggs being distributed, and attend “EGG FEST 2016.”

The Philippines is holding a charity Family Fun Run event in honor of eggs, and Canada is focusing their celebrations on the EFC — Egg Farmers of Canada — who apparently are very active in their communities, volunteering and donating eggs.

The American EGG Board has a video about an ‘Adventure Egg’ who travels the globe looking for great recipes, but I think the United Kingdom has the right idea. Their theme?

“Put an Egg on It” — to encourage folks to eat eggs in unusual ways.

Gasp — I just realized my sister is British.

It’s National Lazy Day!

lazyruleNot surprisingly, I can’t find too many festivities planned in celebration.

Of course, I didn’t really look all that hard.

It would be unseemly.

I may already be in trouble for using an exclamation point in my first sentence.

Wheelie, Dad

Today people across the US celebrate those who fathered them (and deservedly so).

But did you know today is also Go Skate Day?

The holiday was started by the IASC (International Association of Skating Companies) to promote skateboarding around the world.

So, clearly you need to get the dads in your life skateboarding as part of the festivities.  Seriously — get a mental imagine.

It will be brilliant.

Happy Skating Father’s Day everyone!
