So, I suppose since November 5 is both Love Your Red Hair Day and National Doughnut Day that you should indulge in eating a doughnut as you admire your red hair. Don’t worry if you’re not a natural ginger. It just means it’s as good a time as any to add that color to your lovely locks.
National Love Your Red Hair Day
Established by Adrienne & Stephanie Vendetti in 2015, National Love Your Red Hair Day is all about encouraging redheads to have more self-confidence. That may seem counter-intuitive considering how much gingers seem to be envied, but the Vendetti sisters explain on their site howtobearedhead.com and in their book How To Be A Redhead that the lack of beauty products that supported their red hair and fair complexion discouraged them as young girls. So, they have dedicated their site and other publications to sharing the secrets and products they’ve found that work the best for them as redheads.
Be sure to share a pic of yourself, a friend, or a famous celebrity rocking that red using the hashtag #LoveYourRedHairDay.
National Doughnut Day, Again
That’s right, it’s National Doughnut Day again. No, you’re not going crazy. Yes, we just celebrated National Doughnut Day June 1.
If you want to know why there are two National Doughnut Days, check out Mental Floss’ article on this controversy. You can also read more about the history of these two days on the Foodimentary website.
National Doughnut Day is usually celebrated by individuals consuming the delicious delicacy and by companies offering deals and freebies, but not all companies recognize both doughnut holidays. June 1 seems to be the preferred National Doughnut Day. However, Krispy Kreme still gives out free doughnuts on November 5, and Dunkin’ Doughnuts gives away a free doughnut with the purchase of a drink.
If you share your doughnut story or picture on social media, go ahead and reuse the hashtag #NationalDoughnutDay.
Other “National Days” celebrated this November 5 include, Color the World Orange Day, and Job Action Day. Established in 2014, Color the World Orange Day just so happens to fall on November 5 this year. It’s a holiday that was started as a way to increase awareness of Complex Regional Pain Syndrom and Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. In this way, wearing orange is akin to wearing pink to support breast cancer awareness. If posting on social media, use the initials of the syndrom in the hashtag #CRPSOrangeDay.
Just like Color the World Orange Day, Job Action Day is observed on the first Monday of November, not specifically November 5. Job Action Day is all about taking the opportunity to actively look for work and/or improving the job you already have. Good luck in your endeavors and be sure to use the hashtag #JobActionDay.
