National Stress Awareness Day – April 16

Everyone gets too stressed out every now and again. It’s hard not to in a society that’s hyper-connected and on-the-go: our work emails are hooked up to our phones in our pockets and our timelines are full of distressing news. If you need an excuse or a reminder to slow down and relax, get ready to celebrate National Stress Awareness Day! This lesser-known of the spring holidays is a good reason to send your stressed-out friends some flowers to remind them to slow down and smell the roses!

Brothers and Sisters Day – May 2

Siblings: you can’t live with them, you can’t live without them. While they may have annoyed you at any given chance growing up, they’re probably a good friend of yours now as an adult.
