Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

AUGUST 27, 2018 | NATIONAL JUST BECAUSE DAY | NATIONAL POTS DE CREME DAY

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, on National Just Because Day, that does not apply.   This day 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!
Make something up…just because!
Or maybe, just maybe, do something just because Mom said so.  

HOW TO OBSERVE

Do something just because.  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 dessert is a loose French custard dating back to the 17th century.  Its name means “pot of custard” or “pot of creme” which also refers to the white porcelain cups in which the dessert is traditionally served.

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.
