NATIONAL MAY RAY DAY
On May 19th, if your name is Ray (or Rae) give everyone permission to call you…well…Ray. It is National May Ray Day.
The idea is, everyone may call you Ray on this day instead of “Hey you!” Or maybe Rays sometimes get called “Sweetheart” or not so nice things. The holiday is all about getting out into the sunshine and saying, “You can call me Ray.”
There are many ways to enjoy the outdoors and the warmer days as summer approaches. Whether your place under the sun is at the park, a rooftop or your own back yard find a way to enjoy the nicer weather. If mother nature isn’t cooperating, there are several days in May remaining. National May Ray Day can be used to plan a day outside.

NATIONAL MAY RAY DAY HISTORY
The Broadway Fun Spot (a nickname for a residence on Broadway) of St. Joseph, Michigan founded this celebration in 1977. Richard Ankli, also the creator of You’re Welcomegiving Day in November, came up with the idea in honor of his brother Ray who was born on May 19th.
