Limerick Day
A limerick is a five line poem popularized by Edward Lear. On this his birthday, take some time to write your own limerick today. Here is an example to get you started. . .

There once were some rhymes they called limericks
Repeated by smart men and dimwits
They’re easy to make
A real piece of cake
Until you get to the last line

And many limericks can be quite colorful. Remember – There once was a man from Nantucket. . . ??

National Third Shift Workers Day / National Nightshift Workers Day
A day of appreciation for those who are still slaving away while the rest of us are snuggled up tight in our beds, while visions of sugarplums dance in our heads!

Gonna be some sweet sounds coming down
On the nightshift
I bet you’re singing proud
Oh, I bet you’ll pull a crowd
Gonna be a long night, it’s gonna be all right
On the nightshift
Oh you found another home, I know you’re not alone
On the nightshift*
