Game Day

November 12
Imagine it is family game night, and you gather the family around, but WAIT!! It is also Pizza with the works (excepting anchovies) Day......Okay, who wants Pizza Pie??
I have to say, my favorite is either the works, OR Sausage, onion, olive with extra cheese. OR (Im a bit on the strange side if you havent figured that out yet, lol) Buffalo Chicken, Blue cheese with pineapple (and the only sauce on it is some hot sauce and the cheese).
What is your favorite pizza?

Technically today is Gaming at the Library Day, but does that mean you cant turn it into family game night? Alot of libraries around the country participate, they do board games, physical games (Red Rover, Role Playing, Charades, etc) video games, and tons of others!
Does your library do this? Would you be interested in finding out more about it?

Those two sites should give you some helps and hints.
It is also Domino Day, play dominoes! I had a roommate a few years ago, her parents taught me to play Train Dominoes, LOVED that variation!

National Donor Sabbath Day
Each November, Gift of Hope Organ & Tissue Donor Network joins clergy and healthcare professionals across the country in celebrating National Donor Sabbath—an annual observance to raise awareness of the urgent need for organ and tissue donation among religious communities.
If you are a donor, or havent marked it on your ID/license yet, please do so. And thank you.

Chicken Soup for Soul Day
These books are a wonderful heartwarming series of books that have been popular for going on 20 years now. I am a CNA (Certified Nurses Aide) and a few years ago I found a book called Chicken Soup for the Nurses Soul. I just love that book, tear jerking, heartwarming, and just is awesome.
