Nice National Day-ly Double

Having been raised in an Italian family, I simply couldn't pass this one up.

NATIONAL MEATBALL DAY

On March 9th, we recognize one of the great American food holidays, National Meatball Day.

It is not clear how this day got started, but who can resist the idea of celebrating National Meatball Day? There are many different ways to celebrate meatballs:

  • Spaghetti and meatballs
  • Swedish Meatballs
  • Meatball Sub
  • Meatball Pizza
  • Turkey Meatballs
  • Lamb Meatballs
  • Porcupine Meatballs (made with rice)
  • and the list goes on and on.

We can’t put a number on the variety of meatballs in the world. Nor can we limit how many you put on your plate. One giant meatball will more than satisfy but a bowlful of smaller ones is easier to share. And as we’ve already pointed out, their variety is unquestionably a selling point. Not only do meatballs allow for variety, but did we mention how flexible they are? Meatballs move from appetizer to side dish to the main dish quite easily. Meatballs can be made the night before and put in the crockpot, or days before, and kept in the freezer.  

Used in a sentence: Have you ever wondered how meatball came to be a disparaging term ?

This next National Day seems perfectly suited for Alabama and Florida (and maybe UT) fans:

NATIONAL GET OVER IT DAY

Each year on the 9th of March, people across the country observe National Get Over It Day. Just as it implies, the day is to do exactly that, GET OVER IT.

“It” may be a variety of things. Sometimes we need to get over the small things like spilled milk or traffic. Even news such as being passed over for a promotion, poor grades, or an argument with a family member shouldn’t cause us to live our lives in a state of misery forever. 

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalGetOverItDay

  • Don’t fume over something minor any longer.
  • Settle the score with yourself and your burden will feel lighter.
  • Say goodbye to the worry of the “if onlys” and “what ifs” and look forward to days with a more positive attitude. 
  • Host an obstacle course race and see who gets over the objects in their path the fastest.
  • Get over that cold that’s been nagging you for weeks. 
  • Has something trivial been weighing on your mind? Get over it and use #NationalGetOverItDay to post on social media.

Used in a sentence: When will they ever get over it - UGA is the national champ.
