Notable July Holidays Other than Independence Day!


In the US if someone is asked what holidays are in July they will most likely will say Independence Day. But what about the other recognized holidays? We thought we would share a list of many of the holidays coming up in July, so you can continue the celebrations all month long!


July 3rd Compliment Your Mirror Day


Ok, so here’s what you do…Stand in front of your mirror, with your eyes closed. Now open them, and tell yourself, “You look marvelous.”



July 10th Teddy Bear Picnic Day

Why not pack up your picnic basket, grab a blanket and spend a lovely couple of hours in the shade with your favorite teddy bear. I’m sure no one will look at you funny. Pro tip: Guys this probably isn’t a great way to find a lady.



July 15th Cow Appreciation Day


The cow. It gives us such wonderful things; milk, cheese, ice cream, hamburgers and so much more. Why not celebrate July 15th by giving your local cow a hug and maybe…just maybe eating some chicken.



July 20th Ugly Truck Day

Great news! If you happen to own one, this day is the day for it to shine. Unless it’s not shiny anymore, and that’s ok…it’s Ugly Truck Day.



July 21st National Junk Food Day

What can we say other than this could quite possibly be the best holiday of them all.



July 23rd Parent’s Day


Falling on the third Sunday in July, this holiday is similar to Mother’s and Father’s Day. But let’s be honest, we don’t celebrate parents enough. So take the 23rd and give them all call and a word of thanks.

Pioneer day is an official holiday in Utah! This day is to celebrate Mormon Pioneers at Brigham Young and their entry into the Salt Lake Valley. It is similar to Fourth of July and people often shoot off fireworks.

Beginning in 2016 this day was proclaimed in remembrance of all the men and women who fought in the Korean war. This is the day the armistice was signed ending the Korean war and will continue to be celebrated in honor of the strength and resilience of our veterans.



July 28th National Milk Chocolate Day

As far as we’re concerned every day could be milk chocolate day. But we feel it’s our duty as an Americans to eat some milk chocolate to celebrate on the 28th. If you’re lactose intolerant, you are excused.



July 31st National Mutt Day


Don’t have a purebred pup? That’s ok. Mutts deserve their own day in the spotlight as much as a pure breed. Give your pup an extra (we’re going to spell the word that must never be spoken out loud unless you mean to use it) T-R-E-A-T and lots of belly rubs for all their love and loyalty.


July, it’s not only for fireworks anymore. We hope you enjoy each and every day this month!
