Sunday, October 10, 2010, is one of the three remaining "Bodacious Bonza Bottler Days" we will see in our life time, and so it is fitting that I should do a special, albeit short, blog post about it. Bonza Bottler Day is when the number of the month and the day of the month are the same — for instance January 1 (1-1), February 2 (2-2), and so on. February 2, Groundhog Day in the USA, gives the monthly holiday its mascot and logo. If you want to know more about the history and purpose of the holiday, you can read more on the official website . A Bodacious Bonza Bottler Day is when the number of the month, day, and year are the same. Tomorrow is 10-10-10, next year November 11 will be 11-11-11, and then in 2012, December 12 will be the final Bodacious Bottler Day of this century. Since my lifetime friend Scott will be 59 on that day, I hope it will be a great celebration for him and his family. (Start planning, Cathy!)
If you do anything special to celebrate on 10-10-10, please let us know in the comments.
