The 2023 Un-Dead Your Life Calendar

Now that the seriousness of “The New Year” has settled (is it just me or does every new year come laden with pressure to radically change your currently crap life for the better?), we can get onto what really matters:

National Fish Taco Day is just a couple of weeks away (1/25 to be exact).

National Chocolate Cake DayYou know what else is on the horizon?

National Chocolate Cake Day (1/27, friends; be prepared).

And for those of you less obsessed with food (WHO ARE YOU?), there are exciting things in store for you this year, too. Here’s a random sampling:

  • World Kindness DayViagra Day (3/27)
  • National Creativity Day (5/30)
  • World Kindness Day (11/13)
  • National Stay at Home Because You’re Well Day (11/30)
  • The list goes on (359 things, to be exact) but you have a life to live and I must let you get on with it

Is it ridiculous that I doodled you a calendar this ridiculous? A calendar that heralds occasions as auspicious as National Toasted Marshmallow Day (8/30; don’t miss out)? Absolutely!

It’s even more ridiculous that this is the third year in a row I’ve doodled and published this calendar, and that it’s “back by popular demand,” which means that others are interested in National Pina Colada Day, too (7/10).

I believe in the power of this calendar for these reasons:

  • We need to widen our lives with vitality, and when we’re sucked into the vortex of work and more work and even more work, it’s easy to just . . . keep working. We need inspiration to silly it up a bit, and having a calendar with 365 ways to add fun into life provides a handy resource. Look no further than the calendar to know what you’ll be up to on 3/30 (Take a Walk in the Park Day).
  • Relieved ChickenWe sometimes take life too seriously, and think that it only “counts” when we’re doing something epic or profound. As I’ve said before, it pays to revel in our mundane, everyday existence, because life it what happens when we’re thinking about the life we should be living. Planning to celebrate National Nachos Day on 11/6 (WHY IS THIS NOT A NATIONAL HOLIDAY?) is a cheap and cheerful way to spice life up on a Monday night.
  • I want an excuse to draw crazy things (like relieved chickens on World Vegan Day; 11/1). Pure selfishness.

Guys, we get 52 Mondays this year. We can squander them, we can make them average, or we can make them memorable and meaningful . . . astonishing, even! With the help of this goofy calendar, maybe you can add a wee bit of vitality into your life in 2023. Don’t be surprised if meaning sneaks its way in, too. How could it not on 12/11 with the Holiday Food Drive for the Needy Animals Day?

This week is International Thank You Day (on 1/11). Thank you for using and sharing this calendar . . . for living as though you’ve been warned you will not live forever. Let’s get on with enjoying things like National Strawberry Ice Cream Day (1/15). Life’s too short to NOT eat the ice cream.
