December 12, 2012: Bodacious Bonza Bottler Day

Today is Bonza Bottler Day. In fact, it is what we like to call a Bodacious Bonza Bottler Day. You see today's date is 12/12/12. A Bonza Bottler day is any day where the number of the day is the same as the number of the month: January 1st, February 2nd, March 3rd, etc. A Bodacious Bonza Bottler day throws in the year for good measure, 12/12/12. We won't have another one of those until 01/01/2101, 89 years from now. That would make me 140 years old. Hey, if you're going to dream, dream big.

There is an official Bonza Bottler day site (Bonza Bottler Day) and here is a quote from that site:

     August 8, 2010 marked the 25th year anniversary of the first official celebration of Bonza      Bottler Day, which was created by Elaine Fremont in 1985 when she realized there were no special occasions to celebrate one month. She decided to give herself a   reason to have a party and some fun with this special day every month. Ms. Fremont held a contest to name the day, which a student from Australia won.  When Australians like something, they might exclaim, "Bonza !" which means "super," "great,"   or "fantastic." "Bottler" is slang for "something excellent."  Thus, the celebration each month is now known as Bonza Bottler Day, which was first officially celebrated on August 8, 1985 in Greenville, South Carolina, where Elaine Fremont was born and lived.

I am a Bonza Bottler Baby born 7/7/1961. I've had a couple of notable birthdays including, 7/7/77 and 7/7/7. So take advantage of a Bodacious Bonza Bottler day, it's call to have a party and party on at Walt Disney World. Woo Hoo!
