June Happenings: 2021

Updated: Jun 23

Even as an adult, I enjoy children’s literature. So, June is a good time to celebrate Maurice Sendak’s birthday, June 10th. This author and illustrator provided children and adults worldwide with books like ``Where the Wild Things Are,” “Outside Over There,” and “In the Night Kitchen.” Reading these books make for fun family times. Reread them to your children or share with a friend!

Father’s Day is June 20th this year! If you are fortunate enough to have or to have had a steady and loving father figure in your life, celebrate him. Take him to a picnic or dinner, cook him a meal, get him a tool he’ll love, and just plain let him know you love him! There are so many ways to celebrate.

Juneteenth: June 19th is celebrated this month. We are waiting on the federal holiday! On this date in 1865 the remaining slaves in Texas were finally informed of their freedom.

Juneteenth combines the words June and nineteenth. Many African Americans celebrate the end of slavery in the United States on this day with a variety of ceremonies like poetry readings, singing, and a variety or remembrances and showcases. This day is also called Emancipation Day, Black Independence Day, and America’s Second Independence Day. Use #juneteenth.

June 21st is International Yoga Day. Focus on full breathing, flexibility, strength and helping others. Millions across the world will practice and enjoy the physical and spiritual practice. Use #hastaginternationalyogaday and #yogaeveryday.
