6 April holidays we should celebrate

I hate April Fool's Day. Absolutely hate it. It's not that I'm so uptight I can't take a joke; I just don't understand the idea of a day totally devoted to tricking people. Maybe it's because I'm very trusting or maybe it's because I still haven't totally gotten over the year my sister hid all the toilet paper in our shared bathroom but I seriously dread April Fool's. If I didn't have to go to work today I'd stay locked in my bedroom so I didn't have to even worry about someone trying to trick me. I don't really know the history on April Fool's Day, why or who or when we started to celebrate it, but I wouldn't be sad one bit if we adopted some other random April holiday to celebrate. Here are a few of my top suggestions

April 2:  National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day - I mean seriously what's more American than a good PB&J sandwich
April 6:  Plan your Epitaph Day - Yes, maybe a little morbid, but wouldn't you rather have control over what people remember you for than someone else
April 10:  National Siblings Day - Because there had to be someone to blame when the last cookie was missing from the cookie jar or Coke stains were discovered on the carpet
April 16:  National Eggs Benedict Day - Basically national brunch day as if we needed a reminder that brunch is the best meal ever
April 22:  National Jelly Bean Day - Really it should be National Jelly Bean Day every day because I'm pretty sure there are at least 365 different flavors
April 30:  National Honesty Day - I think we can all agree that a little more honesty would be nothing but good

Long story short, unless you're Ashton Kutcher and you get paid to prank people, please don't celebrate this day

I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
