Celebrating...Old Maids

This one is for all the single ladies...

Today is Old Maid's Day.  Yes, it the day dedicated to the single ladies.  Old Maid's Day exists to put the spotlight on all of the fair maidens who haven't yet found their Prince Charming.  Not exactly sure what you are supposed to do to call attention to yourself on this day, but I thought it was one of those quirky days that should be celebrated. 

A bit of history.  Old Maid's Day was created in sometime in the mid-1940's after WWII.  The GI's were coming home and there were ladies...and then dances and socials...and that all grew into this holiday.

I know, there are those of you who look at being an Old Maid as a negative thing, but if there is one thing that I have learned in my many years, it's that life is what you make it.  So you've got to find ways to make the best of everything.  As the cliche's go...make the best of everything...live life to the fullest...when life gives you lemons, make lemonade...and live each day as if it's your last, because tomorrow is not promised.

So celebrate the fact that your Prince Charming is on the way.  Happy Old Maid's Day!!

Luv Ya!!
