National Days/Weeks

It's taken a month for me to be back to almost-normal, and I'm a little creativity-challenged right now, so I've decided to combine two previous ideas.  Each week on Monday I'll post two photos which represent a "national day" or "national week" for the coming week [through the following Sunday].  Your job is to figure out which national day or week is depicted in each photo.  For example, if it's Monday December 20 and I post a photo of a Christmas tree, it's likely that the day represented is Christmas Day.  But there are a LOT of little-known national days and weeks.  For example, February 2 is Ground Hog Day and February 5 is Ice Cream for Breakfast Day.  So I could have used one of those this week but I didn't.

Here are the photos for this week.  What national day or week does each represent?  Even if you aren't 100% sure, make your best guess!  Come back next week to see if you're right.,_Harbin_International_Ice_and_Snow_Sculpture_Festival_(3238491776).jpg

  1. Ice-cream for breakfast day. Seriously, it should be ice cream for breakfast decade (I think the 20s are a write off, we need this decade over, lol).

    Hmm, I have no idea what days and week there are, so I am going to make things up. A (snow?) statue and a (parcel delivery?) person.I'm going to say "snow cone week" and "pinstripe day".

    1. Those are great guesses! And I agree, I think we need a new decade now =)

  2. Snow Sculpting and Postal Carrier appreciation?

    Hey, I'm in PA, we're a big fan of Phil around these parts. Or maybe slightly less so when he says 6 more weeks... ha ha.

    I was under the weather earlier this week (not the C👾vid, don't worry), but I'm much improved now.
    Over at the a-to-z challenge, plans are hatching for April 2022, including a big event this month (starts Feb 4).
    Plus, WEP has the "All You Need is Love" flash fiction challenge on February 16 - 18.

    1. Great guesses! And I'm glad you're feeling better now.

  3. If you find a new normal that has the key to creativity, please let me know. I have been looking for it for a few years.

    Glad you are on a road to recovery, missed you.

    1) I heard about this from a sand sculptor on Clearwater Beach. Harbin International Snow and Ice Sculpting Festival

    2) Postal Carrier Appreciation Day; Dad was one of them.

    1. If you've been looking for it for a few years, I've got a long way to go to catch up. And these "guesses" are great!
