Every Day Is A Holiday!

Diamond & Blue Topaz Heart Pendant

Every day is a holiday!  Did you know that today is Jewel Day AND Earmuff Day?  Jewel Day is a jewelry store’s favorite holiday, as it’s the day to give and receive jewelry.  Whether you’re bringing home a pair of diamond earrings for your girlfriend, or a rubber silly band for your daughter, as long as your passing along a piece of jewelry, you’re appropriately celebrating Jewel Day.  What’s your most prized piece of jewelry?

Today is also Ear Muff Day.  “Big-eared Chester Greenwood is the father of the Earmuff.  Greenwood patented the “Champion Ear Protector” on March 13, 1877.  It later became known as “ear mufflers”, and was eventually shortened to ‘earmuffs'” (holidayinsights.com).  To those of you living in the warmer climates, like in Florida, you’re probably not all familiar with the “earmuff” accessory, but I have to admit, there’s nothing like securing your winter-cold ears in a nice pair of warm, fleece earmuffs.  Ear muffs keep your ears warm, and protect you from ear infections and earaches resulting from icy cold wind and weather.  “Manufacturers have responded to their popularity with a variety of designs and colors, making one to fit almost anyone’s personality” (holidayinsights.com).  Want to celebrate Earmuff Day?  Simple – just wear your earmuffs!

Happy Holidays!
