Every Day Is A Celebration

Loving & Business (Part 10)


Every day and every month has something to celebrate, whether it is within your company, family or circle of friends. Each is a reason, sometimes a little on the whimsical side, to take the time to reach out and contact someone. Perhaps you will make them smile or give them a bit of a boost in their day.

According to the site Holiday Insights, not only is February 21 Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) but also the date of a more obscure holiday – National Card Reading Day. The description from their site is as follows:

“Card Reading Day is a fun day. It's a day to read cards..... no more, no less. Beyond a doubt, the stationery and Ecard companies love this day. It encourages you to send cards. They like that. As we did our research, we thought we'd find some history that suggests it is a day for Tarot card readings. It very well could be. But, we found no written evidence to support our theory. What we can tell you, is that it’s very popular to send and receive cards today. In order to read a card, someone has to send one. So, get the ball rolling and send out some cards today. Chances are you will get a few back.”

So let’s just imagine that you are looking for creative ways to grow your business, whether it is in product sales, new prospective clients, recruiting or touching your sphere of influence – new reasons for contact with a something a little light-hearted mixed in can really help you engage the other person in conversation. You might want to tap into a holiday such as National Card Reading Day and send cards or eCards in celebration of the day, even to those people who are a little bit difficult to reach.

February 22, you might want to celebrate George’s Birthday – George Washington that is and maybe even leverage off some of his well-documented leadership skills. If you are looking for humor – the same date will give you choices such as Be Humble Day, Walking the Dog Day and World Thinking Day. I can imagine hundreds of ways to use celebrations to motivate, honor, build spirit and give back to the community I serve. To assist you, you will find a document compiled with something to celebrate every day on our download page.

If you do not find what you are looking for there, birthdays, anniversaries, milestones and reasons for recognition abound in your company, just waiting to be noticed. There are also fun things that you can create to build toward a celebration – whether it is work related or just for fun. There are also many service and support oriented celebrations that bring a great reflection as a community citizen. No matter what, all of these touch people and give recognition.



Everyone likes to take part in fun, especially when, perhaps, it reduces a moment of tension. Everyone likes to be recognized for not just the big things but the little ones as well. It doesn’t mean that you need to spend money as much as you need to make a personal investment to positively touch someone else.

What will you celebrate today? Who will you touch with the celebration? How many smiles will you create? Most likely, you will find that using celebrations, holidays and recognition return far more than most other investments you can make and ties loving and business together. As the old adage goes: “No one cares until they know how much you care.”
