Who created this Day?

According to history, it was created by the Romans, Julius Ceasar who first initiated to flip a coin in order to make decisions which he could not settle with.

According to his statement, if the coin comes to rest facing up with HEADS, that determines the winner while TAILS indicates the loser.

 

 

Interesting Facts About Flip A Coin Day

  • Tossing up a coin into the air and catching it or letting it land on the ground until it stops spinning is the way you flip a coin.

When Do You Flip A Coin?

As for me, I usually opt for Flip A coin to make decision when we could not  decide to:

# where to eat during weekends

# who to start the board games on family night

# what to eat for dinner

# who to sit in the middle of the car seat since we have 6 family members  to fit into a 5 seater car

# who to use the computer first

# who to feed the darn annoying cat

# what time to sleep on weekends

=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

So, it is time for you to brush up your flipping coin skill with your thumbs and fingers!

My Favorite Book

Brer Rabbit

I am a huge fan of children story books. I love Enid Bylton  writings. She is very good at simple words, imaginative and creative to bring the whole story alive as if I am watching her story in a video.

Brer Rabbit Again is my favorite book besides Brer Rabbit a Rascal , Brer Rabbit Book and many more.

Cultivate the Reading Habit Early

Reading books is a great hobby to cultivate from early age.

You could start reading to your child as early as 6 months old.

Babies and toddler love to see beautiful colorful pages flipping over and over again.

Read the story lively with your creative tone, wild expression and move your limbs like Mr Bean.

I started to read story books when my English teacher had encouraged us to borrow assorted books in the school library.

Gradually, reading helps me to improve my vocabulary, making sentences and composition with good grades.

Book Lovers Day is a wonderful day to celebrate for young and old readers.

Just grab any interesting, fascinating book that you had not read a long time, a book that you had read half-way through and find a quiet , comfy chair to flip over the pages.

Some people prefer to read in a cozy hammock, a lazy chair, rocking arm-chair or under a shady tree. Just make sure there aren’t any ants crawling over the tree!

  1. The Library: Make a trip to the local library. You could either borrow a couple of books to read at home if the library is not comfy for you. Alternatively, you could adapt to any environment, invite your friends to join your book reading gig at the library. Usually, the library allows each person to borrow a book for 2 weeks.
  2. Read Again: yes, you had read that book, why not read again. I love to read Brer Rabbit books over and over again. When you are passionate of a story book, you will not get tired of it even you had read it over 20 times !

Humans created various festivals and events to remember special days in honor of a famous person or religion practices.

However, weird days are emerging over the years in order to celebrate weird practices too.

Believe it or not, 8th May is No Socks Day!

I happened to stumbled upon this holiday while searching for a Teacher’s Day craft in one of the craft website.

What is No Socks Day

No Socks Day was created by Wellcat, a website that promotes the usage of herbal products and provides information on medicinal uses of herbs, spices that encourages people to have use them in their daily life meals or body treatment.

  • No Socks Day is a day when everyone need not have to wear any socks or stockings for the whole day.
  • This is the day to celebrate for your weary feet and toes.
  • Allow your hardworking feet to relax, get ready your toes for pedicure and pamper your feet with a relaxing massage of baby oil or lotion.

What do you do on No Socks Day

  1. Do not wear closed up shoes for a day.
  2. Wear comfortable lazy sandals or slippers where you don’t have to wear socks at all.
  3. Bare your feet on the soft grass to feel the natural feeling of touching the ground.
  4. I found that No Socks Day is a good day to reduce my laundry, at least I need not have to wash those smelly, stinky socks for a day!
  5. In addition, I do not have to find mix match socks that happens every time when I had to fold the laundry.
  6. No socks, no smelly shoes and no smelly feet, what a day to feel free just for one day.
  7. Give your socks a break. Amend torn socks by sewing up the holes..
  8. Give your feet a break. Put them up of the chair or sofa and relax while exercising the toes

Are you ready for No Socks Day?

Get ready your nail polish, okay?
