National Cheese Day - A Holiday Review

National Cheese Day is celebrated each year on June 4th.

They say that the art of cheese making is so ancient that it predates recorded history. It is such a popular food staple that it can still satisfy any craving even after thousands of years. 

Interesting Cheese Facts:

  • Among the healthiest cheeses (which are better for lactose intolerance) are feta and goat cheese.
  • Cottage cheese (including ricotta) contain a muscle-building protein ~ up to 11 grams in a single serving.
  • For people with hypertension, Swiss cheese is a good option as it is naturally lower in sodium.
  • Did you know that cheeses are more flavorful at room temperature?  Just let them stand for one-half hour before serving. 

  • There are seven types of cheese:  

    1.  Fresh
    2.  Aged fresh
    3.  Soft white rind
    4.  Semi-soft
    5.  Hard
    6.  Blue
    7.  Flavor added

The most popular cheese is mozzarella. And it is a good source of calcium. Try the tip below for a tasty and healthy snack when you are not enjoying it on your favorite pizza!

Tip: Melt some part-skim mozzarella on sliced tomatoes and basil to boost your calcium intake for the day.

*National Cheddar Day reminds me of a happy personal story:  My daughter has a very friendly neighborhood cat who regularly visits their home. He is an orange tabby named Cheddar! Cheddar recently got lost during a severe thunderstorm and the owners and my daughter posted descriptions and pictures of Cheddar on Facebook to locate him when he didn't come home. After 3 days, the postings resulted in locating Cheddar, who is back with his family and his favorite neighbors (my daughter & son-in-law). 


So, enjoy your favorite cheese in chunk, slice or dip form. Or baked in a favorite cheese dish (macaroni & cheese), added to grilled burgers to make a cheeseburger, or in dozens of different ways. Even a cat with a cheese name! :)

Mark June 4th on your calendar to be sure and celebrate National Cheese Day.

When is National Umbrella Month?

Celebrate National Umbrella Month!

When is National Umbrella Month? Learn more here.


March is National Umbrella Month. In my part of the world, you could not pick a better month to celebrate this very important invention. Ontario is not necessarily the rainiest part of Canada but we do receive plenty of rain in the springtime, which is not a bad thing for, as you know, rain showers bring spring flowers.

Umbrellas have a number of job duties that are not limited to protecting us from the rain though that is what they are most commonly associated with. People also use umbrellas as fashion accessories, for photography and to block out the strong rays of the sun.

National Umbrella Month is the time to celebrate one of the most useful yet underrated inventions so before we plan our celebration, let's take this striking striking blue umbrella for a walk in the rain with us now. It is Amazon's top rated sky-themed umbrella and is available by clicking right here.

Beautiful blue skies will shine when you open this umbrella!


  • Celebrate umbrella month with a new umbrella. Find one that will be sure to make you smile on a rainy day!
  • Celebrate by donating a new umbrella to a homeless shelter. It will help shelter someone else from the rain.
  • Celebrate umbrella month by promoting your business with one. Instead of using pens this year to promote your business, use umbrellas with your company business information and logo on them. You'll really stand out in a crowd!
  • Celebrate by hanging a decorative umbrella on your patio or by adding one to your patio table. Pick a colour or a pattern that you really love!
  • Celebrate umbrella month by donating all of your used ones to goodwill. If you are not using them and they are in good working condition, you can bet that someone else will.
  • Celebrate by donating ten new umbrellas to the Red Cross. Once again, you will help brighten someone's rainy days.
  • Celebrate umbrella month by reading an umbrella-themed storybook. Yes, there are beautiful children's books devoted to the wonderful umbrella.
Can you think of other ways to celebrate National Umbrella Month?

Don't let those raindrops
keep falling on your head!
