9780800722012This charming book offers party planning ideas for year-round celebrations. It covers the traditional holidays such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day and others. But it also highlights unique holidays, special days and events that can be turned into celebrations. Among the non-traditional celebrations are Backwards Day (Jan. 31), Tell a Story Day (April 27) and Book Lover’s Day (Aug. 9) to name a few.

There’s even a Name Day where you can celebrate your birthday a second time. According to an old European tradition, names are assigned to each day of the year. Discover the date of your name and celebrate a second birthday.

Another fun way to celebrate is to create a ‘family honor plate.’ It’s a special plate (of your design) that can only be used by the family member who makes an achievement, does an act of kindness or whatever accomplishment you decide.

With each celebration there are activity suggestions and numerous easy recipes. Each occasion gives hints, along with personal accounts of how they celebrated the special day. The book is written in an easy format with the holidays separated into seasons for year-round entertainment.

FTC Full Disclosure - I requested this book as part of a blog tour and it was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.

Thanks for stopping by today. Do you enjoy planning celebrations for your family? Do you have a unique family celebration you’d like to share with us?


  1. Mason - I really like the title of that book. There's pretty much a reason to celebrate nearly every day and it's good to remember that. And I didn't even know there was such a thing as Backwards Day. Interesting! Thanks for sharing.

  2. This sounds like a book I need. Seems to be party central at this house lately. :)

  3. Sounds like a great book for someone (like me) who loves to plan get togethers!


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
