Each month is known for certain popular holidays. Valentine’s Day is in February, Memorial Day in May, and Halloween in October. April does have its share of holidays as well, but most of us only know April for Easter and Earth Day. So, I did a little bit of research and found 5 new and not-so-common April holidays that we can start celebrating and add to our FAB Fives list!
April 3rd – Don’t Go to Work Unless it’s Fun Day
We can probably already guess what you’re thinking… But when you work for for a company that celebrates beauty and diversity, every day is fun!
April 6th – California Poppy Day
There might be a little bias regarding why we chose this holiday to highlight. We are located in California, so by default our favorite flower is the golden poppy! This time of year, they are blooming in beautiful fields at Lake Clementine and in the Antelope Valley, along with a few other spots. If you are planning a trip to one of these beautiful golden fields, do so soon! They are apparently only going to be in full bloom for just another week.
April 8th – All is Ours Day
There should be more holidays like this! Seize the day! Keep an open mind and stay optimistic. Imagine the possibilities. They are endless. What a great day this will be. Or not… that is left up to you.
April 22nd – Girl Scout Leader Day
This day honors the thousands of volunteers who help to make the Girl Scout program a success. They are helping make these scouts true girl bosses, one by one. And we think that is awesome!
April 30th – Hairstyle Appreciation Day
Just like beautiful bodies come in all shapes and skin tones, beautiful hair also comes in all textures, colors, and shapes! So embrace your curls, love your relaxed texture, and appreciate all of the other fabulous hairstyles that you see on the fierce women around you!
This list isn’t meant to be exhaustive of all that April has to offer… if you know of any fun ones that we’ve missed, please let us know in the comments. Happy April!
