I was just looking at a list of National Months, and I can tell you the list is nowhere near exhaustive. I don’t know if there is a national birding month anywhere else, but we don’t seem to have one in the U.S. There is however, a national bird-feeding month, but I’m not sure I’ll have much luck with that in my tiny courtyard and balcony. I doubt I would get many feathered visitors here. So I promise you, my beautiful non-feathered followers that come February you do not need to worry about my filling your inbox with photos or videos of a different bird every day for 28 days. Anyway, I might still be recovering from 2012’s national poetry month by then.
Seriously though, did you know that this is also national soft pretzel month? That’s crazy because when I lived in Indiana 20 years ago I couldn’t find a German soft pretzel anywhere. Perhaps times have changed, or else marketing has improved. In any case, I really think I should commit to eating one soft pretzel per day for the next 15 days to round out the month. Maybe there’s a good poem in this… Or not.
If worse comes to worst I should be able to bounce back soon because May is national fitness and sports month!
