Saturday the 15th of June is the very first "Good Day" in Finland - billed by organizers as a "revolution of caring". The idea is to have some fun and promote both physical and mental well-being.

The core of the concept revolves around volunteer activities and just being good neighbours. The idea is to lower the threshold to getting out and enjoying life with others, on a jog or an impromptu picnic, any activity whatsoever.

A recent street survey in central Ostrobothnia asked people what they think would make this "Good Day" particularly good. Many said seeing friends, visiting the sick and elderly, or just cooking a meal with someone.

Also high on the list were very simple ways to brighten the day - asking "how are you?”, sharing a hug, or giving someone a smile.

We all have something to give. You can organize a brisk walk or give 5-minute shoulder rubs. Or simply walk around your city with a stupid grin on your face that says HEI, have a Good Day!

is good friday off the hook now ?


cause that was getting no where .

same with Easter , outside of chicken farmers

no one liked Easter

Christmas was alright
if you could afford to SHOP

Black Tuesday was a Bitch

and Blue Monday not any better

Hump day is awesome if you have someone to hump

Earth Day would have worked
if we would have gotten started before
we turned the Earth into a Sewer

Memorial day sucks
makes us think of dead soldiers who died for the Machine .

Fathers day bites for me


Do they have a " Children's Day " yet ?

Birth day is creepy , once you get passed 18

you don't want another one

National stop the farting Day would be sweet

" Good Doggy Day " ?

" Silent Revolution Day "

where we refuse to celebrate any day that heretofore had a special event celebration
attached to it .
