No, it’s not an official national or international holiday but it developed from an art student who drew a monkey on his friend’s calendar. Enjoy and celebrate monkeys – the animal kind, not the human kind. There are 260 species of monkeys from which to choose. It might be a great day to make banana nut bread and read Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed by Eileen Christelow with your children.
It is also National Bouillabaisse Day. For those who are unfamiliar with this – it is a tasty Mediterranean fish stew or soup. There are no official records that make this a national holiday but don’t let that stop you from making the soup!
