Just Because Day–August 27

I needed a blog topic: Just Because Day provided both topic and a reason to celebrate.

Just Because Day should not be confused with Operation Just Cause– the US invasion of Panama Dec 20, 1989 – Jan 31, 1990.

In the late 1950s, Joseph J. Goodwin of Los Gatos, California created Just Because Day. It began as a family holiday and grew into an annual celebration across the United States.


Here is what I’m going to do today

  1. Go  to the Barnes and Noble Cafe to buy and eat a salted caramel cookie
  2. Take a bag of clothes and books to Good Will
  3. Follow a country road I have never driven before
  4. Spend at least an hour reading or listening to one of the three library books I have checked out
  5. Do something nice for my husband
  6. Go shopping for something other than groceries or necessities–maybe even buy something.

What are you going to do today, just because?
