NATIONAL ROSÉ DAY

National Rosé Day is observed annually on the second Saturday in June.  Rosé is probably the oldest known type of wine, dating back as far as 600 BC.  Rosé wines are generally made from red grapes and are very versatile wines that complement many types of food. Rosé is lighter than red wine and deeper than white wine.  The pink color of rosé wine depends on the time the grape skin stays in contact with the juice, also known as maceration.  There are rosé wines that are semi-sparkling or sparkling, with different intensities of sweetness levels and dryness.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Celebrate National Rosé Day by having a bottle of Rosé wine with dinner or simply invite friends over for h’orderves and enjoy each other’s company.  Share your special evening on Social Media on Facebook@NationalRoséDay and Instagram@nationalroseday using #NationalRoséDay.

NATIONAL UPSY DAISY DAY

Each year on June 8, National Upsy Daisy Day is set aside to encourage you to face the day positively and to get up ‘gloriously, gratefully and gleefully’ each morning.

Every day is a gift and if we remember that as we rise each morning, it will help us carry a good attitude throughout the day, whatever the day may bring us.  Life is full of challenges and bumps in the road, and it is our attitude that helps us over the bumps and through the challenges to move onward with a smile.

Give it a try.  Be grateful and thankful for what you do have such as a bed to sleep in, food to eat, friends and family. Try a smile and see how it feels.  It may surprise you that it feels good on the inside also and how other people will smile back.  You may just brighten up their day!   Upsy Daisy!

NATIONAL NAME YOUR POISON DAY

National Name Your Poison Day is observed each year on June 8.  Over the years, bartenders have been known to use the phrase, “name your poison,” when asking patrons what they would like to drink.  This observance celebrates that phrase and is a day to commemorates making a choice or a decision.

It may be a simple choice to make, or it might be a difficult decision that requires a lot of thought.

The origin of the phrase “name your poison” is unknown.  It is believed when it was first used, it referred to making a choice from a poor collection of options.  It suggests whichever selection was made would be a bad one. Hence, the word “poison” in the phrase.
