National Just Because Day – August 27
NATIONAL JUST BECAUSE DAY
Each year on August 27th it is National Just Because Day. Feel free to celebrate this day any way you choose, “just because” !
Every day we all do things that are expected or required of us or because we have to, well today that does not apply. Today is a chance to do something without rhyme or reason.
It could be that there is an outfit at the mall that you are admiring; buy it…. just because.
Maybe you want to use a vacation day just to go fishing; do it…… just because.
Perhaps you would like to pay the tab for the table next to you at your favorite restaurant; do it….. just because.
Possibly you want to sing really loud while you’re in your car, by yourself, with your windows rolled down; do it…… just because.
Surprise someone with flowers……. just because!
and etc………….. just because !
Do something different, out of the ordinary, something that you do not have to do but just want to do, that is what today is all about. Use #NationalJustBecauseDay to post on social media.

NATIONAL POTS DE CREME DAY
National Pots De Creme Day is observed annually on August 27th.
This delicious French desert is a loose french custard dating back to the 17th century. It’s name means “pot of custard” or “pot of creme” which is also referring to the white porcelain cups in which the dessert is traditionally served in.
Pot de creme is made by combining eggs, egg yolks, cream, milk and typically either vanilla or chocolate flavoring. The mixture is baked, in the porcelain cups, in a water bath at a low temperature.
