On August 27, you have the perfect opportunity to set aside all your obligations and to do whatever you please. This is the spirit behind “Just Because Day”, a whimsical observance which was the brainchild of Joseph J. Goodwin from California. Goodwin created the holiday approximately 50 years ago, with the intent having a day to really enjoy life and family. He marked the first Just Because Day by giving his wife a transistor radio, and the tradition of spontaneous gifts "just because" not only caught on with his family, but with others who heard about the carefree custom.
There are no rules to the day - simply follow your impulse. Sing in the shower, or sing on a street corner. Sleep all day, or go for a hike in the mountains. Or perhaps you can send some beautiful flowers to someone for no reason at all. Read More about Floral Arrangements for Just Because Day »
