There will be none of that "he loves me, he loves me not..." self-deprecating flower picking on Love Note Day. Today, he loves you. Or she loves you. I guess it depends. Either way, it's legitimate once it's in document form.
Send a love note to somebody today. Traditionally, recipients of said notes have been spouses, boyfriends, girlfriends, or the secretly admired. However, with a little reworking and censorship, the love note could be an exchange of kind words between friends, family members, everyone, etc.
If you're trying, and you can't think of the right words, say it right with promotional heart-shaped products.

You've probably been one at some point or another. Those "I (heart) NY" vendors depend on them for business. Yes. The Tourist: Clad in cargo shorts, visors, cameras, and fanny packs. Today, we recognize those who dare to trot around the globe. A special shout out to those people who really stand out in their foreign destination. Good for you. That takes guts.
Seriously though, this day is all about spreading the love. Social, cultural, economic, and political love. And also food. It's really all about the food. Paella, kabobs, and dumplings, oh my!
Next time you travel, don't forget to gear up in your tourist garb. Don't leave town without a promotional fanny pack and promotional camera. Style and function unite!

Remember all of those catchy songs you've heard over the years but cannot for the life of you name the anonymous artist behind the "hit" or any of thier follow-up attempts at Billboard Top 40 Glory? I remember. The songs. Not the artists or the rest of their "music careers."
Celebrate those songs that we hate to remember from artists that we love to forget. Belt out "Oh Mickey you're so fine!" after dancing around to "Mambo No. 5" while you're "Turning Japanese."
Warning: Unearthing of some of these particularly infectious songs may cause unhealthy levels of stress. Have some promotional trebel clef music stress balls handy to squeeze just in case you get urge to hurt someone.

They say that Virginia is for lovers. I guess Virginia's parenthetical object of affection is peanuts: Virginia is for lovers (of peanuts).
For such a small nut, the peanut inspires quite a festival which glorifies the nut…and the art of peanut harvesting. The 45th annual celebrations include (but are not limited to): Marching bands, arts and crafts, pony rides, and a commemorative civil war exhibit!??!!
Whether or not you're a Lover from Virginia, nuts are pretty yummy. Forgot to buy your plane ticket to Virginia? Celebrate the nuttiness wherever you may be with promotional nuts. Yum.
If you have any nutty stories, feel free to leave a comment!

The people in Texas really seem to love their hummingbirds. The citizens in the towns of Rockport and Fulton kick off their three day Hummer/Bird Celebration today. The avian festival honors the 500 mile fall migration of the ruby-throated hummingbird from their nesting grounds in the north to their winter lodgings down in Mexico. With a variety of concessions, workshops, booths, boat tours, and other activities, the event attracts roughly 10,000 people every single year.
If you're similarly inclined to bird-loving, then look into getting some branded binoculars to help out with your bird-watching.
Share with us any stories you might have that involve birds. We'd like to read something uplifting. (No pun)

Ready the champagne and get your list of resolutions ready, it's New Year's kiddies!
...Well, in Ethiopia anyway.
Today is New Year's Day on the Ethiopean Orthodox calendar. While not exactly zany, it is pretty random. So I decided i'ts worth a mention. If anything, it's a good excuse for a party or a time warp, since it's the year 2001 on the Ethiopean orthodox calendar, and the year 1724 on the Coptic Orthodox calendar.
While you're out partying like its 1725, pick up some promotional confetti, kazooes, and champagne items.
Do you want to share a story about a New Year's promotion gone horribly awry? Do you want to share a story about an effective one? Do you want to talk at all? Contact us.

So boys and girls, today's zany holiday is "Neither Snow Nor Rain" Day. Does it ring any bells?
I'll give you a clue....mailman.
Yes, "Neither Snow Nor Rain" are the words that begin what is usually thought of as the motto for the U.S. Post Office. In actuality, the department has no motto. Those words actually appeared scrawled on the front of the New York Post Office Building when it opened in 1914. With time, the whole saying, which goes...
"Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from completion of their appointed rounds"
...became synonymous with mail carriers all over the country.
Celebrate today by getting yourself a nice letter opener, and make sure to thank your mail man (or woman) when you see them today.
We're looking for stories about mailmen, letter openers, and mail in general. Help us out.
