National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day

National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day is celebrated every year on March 24th. Chocolate covered raisins are a fairly "good for you" snack. Raisins are a good source of fiber, potassium, iron, calcium, and certain B vitamins. They are also low in fat and cholesterol and contain antioxidants. If you were to eat raisins covered in dark chocolate they'd be even better for you since research has found that eating a small amount of dark chocolate each day is good for your heart.

Just for fun, why don't we watch a gecko lizard licking a chocolate covered raisin?

It doesn't get much better than that!

Act Happy Week

Today is the first day of Act Happy Week which is observed the week beginning with the third Monday in March. During Act Happy Week we are challenged to consciously put on the face of happiness even if we may not be feeling too happy, and in doing so we will likely become more happy.

What makes you happy? Here are a few things that made me happy when I was a kid:
  • Kittens
  • Puppies
  • Ice Cream
  • Barbie Dolls
  • Paper Dolls
  • Playing hide and seek with my friends.
  • Swinging as high as my legs could pump me.
  • Getting tickled by my dad.
So what about you? My challenge for you this week is to write down 3 things every day that make you happy. Will you do it? I hope so.
