Happy February 13


Happy February 13th to all! 
I want to focus my post not only on the holiday observances, but also how important happiness is in our life. 

Ecclesiastes 3:12 says... I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live;  :)  What wonderful words to live by. We have lots to celebrate today so lets get started spreading happiness by celebrating these holiday and observances.

Here's A Look At February 13th~

Shrove TuesdayThere are a number of names in the West for the last day before the long fast of Lent. The French call it Mardi Gras (meaning "Fat Tuesday"), because it was traditionally a time to use up all the milk, butter, and eggs left in the kitchen. These ingredients often went into pancakes, which is why the English call it Pancake Day.


International Pancake Day: Yes today is pancake day thank's to Shrove Tuesday. People everywhere will be happily eating all varieties of pancakes all day long. Even restaurants are serving up pancake specials too. Pancakes can be eaten at any meal so guys you have all day long to be able to serve them up. We all have our favorite way to eat them. Some enjoy them plain, some enjoy them with chocolate chips, and some enjoy them with fresh fruit. Don't forget the whipped cream!

What I want to say about this is... 
pancakes really do make people smile. We all love them and love is the key word here. It makes us happy. And when we cook pancakes for someone that we love it not only makes them happy but it makes us happy. So I say bring it on. Don't forget that the little things mean so much more than we could ever imagine.
