Have you ever wondered how many impossibilities you can make into possibilities? You wake up every day and start afresh. It is a clean slate on which you can write the sagas of your doings. We celebrate each day for what it is worth. Moreover, every single day is an opportunity for you to spend time with your family and friends. ‘Impossible’ has the word ‘possible’ hidden in it. So, let’s take a moment to address these good times. We commemorate two very unusual days. Firstly, on January 10 we celebrate ‘Houseplant Appreciation Day’. We also appreciate the quirky people in our lives by celebrating ‘Peculiar People Day’.
Houseplant Appreciation Day:
We are almost 10 days into the New Year and it is time to say goodbye to our Christmas decorations. However, we can take a look at some of our houseplants today. January 10 is celebrated as Houseplant Appreciation Day. Small and big plants always insinuate so much happiness and vibrancy. Moreover, they also remind us of how every day is a new beginning and we should be super fresh when we wake up. But we do not only appreciate them for that. They perform a greater noble deed. Houseplants convert the carbon dioxide in the house into pure oxygen. They also release moisture into the air. Read on to see why and how we can celebrate this day in full zest.
Back in 500 B.C, the rich families owned houseplants. In those times, it was considered a privilege. Moving on, in 1652, the idea of conservatories greenhouses was propagated in the minds of the people. Sir Hugh wrote about it in his book ‘The Garden of Eden’. Fast forward to 1836, people started exporting plants across countries. They were being sent through by the ocean. In later years people even started hosting fake plants in their houses. It was a great way to enlighten the house.
How to Celebrate:
There are multiple ways we can celebrate this day. Firstly, go to your nearest nursery and buy yourself a houseplant. Appreciate it, water it daily. Unless it’s a cactus! You could even decorate it with lights. You can bundle all your plants in a corner and create a beautiful section in your house. Furthermore, read about the multiple types of plants available near you. This can be an educative experience.
Peculiar People Day:
We all have our quirks and weird habits. They help us stand out in the crowd. You can be strange and peculiar. This is your day. People who hold the power to shine in the public usually are seen in a different light. Although, peculiar people are fun. They notoriously have the ability to keep you entertained. Having said that, let’s see how you can educate yourself about its history and how you can commemorate it.
People with little quirks have always set the world in motion. All the geniuses in the world usually transformed the global standing. Additionally, all great scientists were peculiar. They had their share of weirdness. January 10 is for people with maybe a different style of speaking. Or maybe with a different dressing style. They could even play unknown instruments. Today is their day to shine.
How to celebrate:
Firstly, recognize all your peculiar friends and family members. Look for all the people who make your life more interesting. Spend your day with them. Be appreciative of them. Moreover, you could also look into all your weird habits. Like we mentioned before everyone has some weird qualities. Today is the day you should be extremely proud of it. Go out there and enjoy your freedom to be quirky.
