It was a great day! Hubs and I both had the day off together!

Which is always awesome!

And it’s Beltane!! And it’s my three month salon day- yep every three months or so- I go and get the hair touched up. Well today I was also able to use my points and so I got the Naked on the Run palette: Eyeshadow, blush, shimmer, mascara, eye liner and lip gloss. Small enough to carry in my purse!

Can’t wait to try it tomorrow. 😉 And finally another Killer Queen fragrance from Katy Perry, this is the Spring/Summer Floral scent and mmmm it smells really pretty! I spritzed some on earlier and eight hours later you can still smell it.

Friday, the 1st of May, 2015 is the 121th day in 2015 and in the 18th calendar week.

ALS Awareness Month
May 1 – 31, 2015 in the USA

In May 2015 ALS Awareness Month is celebrated. In the United States, the campaign is observed every year in the month of May. During this month, the ALS Association sponsors the National ALS Advocacy Day and Public Policy Conference and leads a delegation of people with ALS, their caregivers and other advocates to Capitol Hill to urge legislators to support measures to help find treatments and a cure.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease in the United States-is a neurodegenerative disease with various causes. It is characterised by rapidly progressive weakness due to muscle atrophy and muscle spasticity, difficulty in speaking, swallowing, and breathing.

The disorder causes muscle weakness and atrophy throughout the body due to the degeneration of the upper and lower motor neurons. Unable to function, the muscles weaken and atrophy. Individuals affected by the disorder may ultimately lose the ability to initiate and control all voluntary movement, although bladder and bowel sphincters and the muscles responsible for eye movement are usually, but not always, spared until the final stages of the disease.

Asthma Awareness Month
May 1 – 31, 2015 in the USA

May 2015 is Asthma Awareness Month. Asthma is a common chronic inflammatory disease of the airways characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction and bronchospasm. Common symptoms include wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath.

Asthma is characterized by recurrent episodes of wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing. Sputum may be produced from the lung by coughing but is often hard to bring up. During recovery from an attack it may appear pus like due to high levels of white blood cells called eosinophils.

Use of antibiotics in early life has been linked to the development of asthma. Also, delivery via caesarean section is associated with an increased risk of asthma-this increased risk is attributed to the lack of healthy bacterial colonization that the newborn would have acquired from passage through the birth canal.

Jewish American Heritage Month
May 1 – 31, 2015 in the USA

Jewish American Heritage Month is observed in May 2015. Jewish American Heritage Month is an annual recognition and celebration of Jewish American achievements in and contributions to the United States of America. It is observed annually in the U.S. during the month of May.

Depending on religious definitions and varying population data, the United States is home to the largest or second largest Jewish community in the world. In 2012, the American Jewish population was estimated at between 5.5-8 million, depending on the definition of the term.

President George W. Bush announced that May would be Jewish American Heritage Month in April 2006. The announcement was an achievement in the effort of the Jewish Museum of Florida and South Florida Jewish Community leaders for a celebration of Jewish Americans and Jewish American Heritage.

South Asian Heritage Month
May 1 – 31, 2015 in Canada

May 2015 is South Asian Heritage Month. South Asian Heritage Month is the name given to the month long celebration in Canada, each May, of the presence and heritage of people with roots in the South Asian countries of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Maldives, and Afghanistan.

South Asian immigrants began arriving in Ontario at the start of the 20th century. Working primarily in the sawmill industry, South Asian immigrants settled in various parts of the province. For South Asians, the month of May has been a time of celebration and commemoration of their arrival from the Indian subcontinent to the Americas beginning on May 5, 1838.

When Indian Arrival and Heritage Month was launched at the Scarborough Civic Centre in 2001, the keynote speaker was Raminder Gill, at the time the South Asian Member of the Ontario Parliament. Gill said he would introduce a bill in the legislature to legitimize the event, and he did so later that same year.

May Day 2015
May 1, 2015 in the World

May Day occurs on May 1st and refers to several public holidays. In many countries, May Day is synonymous with International Workers’ Day, or Labour Day, a day of political demonstrations and celebrations organised by unions and other groups. May Day is also a traditional holiday in many cultures.

May Day can refer to various labour celebrations conducted on May 1st that commemorate the fight for the eight-hour day. May Day in this regard is called International Workers’ Day, or Labour Day. The idea for a “workers holiday” began in Australia in 1856; after a Stonemason’s victory, April 22nd was “Eight-Hour Day”, a public holiday. With the idea having spread around the world, the choice of May 1st became a commemoration by the Second International for the people involved in the 1886 Haymarket affair.

May Day is related to the Celtic festival of Beltane and the Germanic festival of Walpurgis Night. May Day falls exactly half a year from November 1, another cross-quarter day which is also associated with various northern European pagan and neopagan festivals such as Samhain. May Day marks the end of the winter half of the year in the Northern hemisphere, and it has traditionally been an occasion for popular and often raucous celebrations.

As Europe became Christianized, the pagan holidays either lost their religious character and became popular secular celebrations, as with May Day, or they were merged with or replaced by new Christian holidays such as Christmas, Easter and All Saints’ Day. In the 20th Century many neopagans began reconstructing the old traditions and celebrating May Day as a pagan religious festival again.

International Workers’ Day
May 1, 2015 in the World

International Workers’ Day (also known as May Day) is a celebration of the international labour movement and left-wing movements. It commonly sees organized street demonstrations and marches by working people and their labour unions throughout most of the world. May 1 is a national holiday in more than 80 countries. It is also celebrated unofficially in many other countries.

International Workers’ Day is the commemoration of the 1886 Haymarket Massacre in Chicago, when Chicago police fired on workers during a general strike for the eight hour workday, killing several demonstrators and resulting in the deaths of several police officers, largely from friendly fire. In 1889, the first congress of the Second International, meeting in Paris for the centennial of the French Revolution and the Exposition Universelle, following a proposal by Raymond Lavigne, called for international demonstrations on the 1890 anniversary of the Chicago protests. May Day was formally recognized as an annual event at the International’s second congress in 1891.

In many countries, the working classes sought to make May Day an official holiday, and their efforts largely succeeded. May Day has long been a focal point for demonstrations by various socialist, communist and anarchist groups. In some circles, bonfires are lit in commemoration of the Haymarket martyrs, usually at dawn. May Day has been an important official holiday in Communist countries such as the People’s Republic of China, Cuba and the former Soviet Union. May Day celebrations typically feature elaborate popular and military parades in these countries.

Save the Rhino Day
May 1, 2015 in the World

Save the Rhino Day is celebrated on May 01, 2015. The day serves to draw attention to the plight of the Rhinoceros in the wild. It is the fifth largest land animal. The genus contains two species, the Indian Rhinoceros and the Javan Rhinoceros. Although both members are endangered, the Javan Rhinoceros is one of the most endangered large mammals in the world with only 60 individuals surviving in Java. The Indian rhinoceros once ranged throughout the entire stretch of the Indo-Gangetic Plain but excessive hunting reduced the natural habitat drastically. Today, about 3,000 rhinos live in the wild, 2,000 of which are found in India’s Assam alone.

Space Day 2015
May 1, 2015 in the World

Space Day takes place on May 01, 2015. Space Day is an educational event held on the first Friday in May. It’s goal is “to promote math, science, technology and engineering education by nurturing young peoples’ enthusiasm for the wonders of the universe and inspiring them to continue the stellar work of today’s space explorers” (according to spaceday.org). Space Day was created by Lockheed Martin Corporation in 1997.

Space or outer space describes the vast empty regions between planets and stars. The study of these, and other, astronomical objects is called astronomy, one of the oldest sciences. It is often said that space exploration began with the launch of Sputnik 1, the first man-made object to orbit the Earth. Then, in an almost unbelievable feat of human achievement, in 1969 Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin travelled to the Moon and set foot on the surface during the Apollo 11 mission.

Recently, it has become clear that the possibility of space colonization may no longer be exclusively reserved for science-fiction stories, and many controversial issues surrounding space have come to light, including commercial spaceflight, space laws and space weapons.

Mother Goose Day
May 1, 2015 in the World

Mother Goose Day is observed on May 01, 2015. Mother Goose Day was founded in 1987 by Gloria T. Delamar in tandem with the publication of her book, “Mother Goose; From Nursery to Literature”. It is a day to appreciate nursery rhymes and stories. The familiar figure of Mother Goose is an imaginary author of a collection of fairy tales and nursery rhymes which are often published as Mother Goose Rhymes. As a character, she appears in one “nursery rhyme”. Mother Goose is generally depicted in literature and book illustration as an elderly country woman in a tall hat and shawl, a costume identical to the peasant costume worn in Wales in the early 20th century, but is sometimes depicted as a goose, usually wearing a bonnet.

International Tuba Day
May 1, 2015 in the World

International Tuba Day is observed on May 01, 2015. International Tuba Day was created to recognize tubists in musical organizations around the world who have to go through the hassle of handling a tuba.

The tuba is the largest and lowest-pitched brass instrument. Sound is produced by vibrating or “buzzing” the lips into a large cupped mouthpiece. It is one of the most recent additions to the modern symphony orchestra, first appearing in the mid-19th century, when it largely replaced the ophicleide.

A person who plays the tuba is known as a tubaist or tubist. In the United Kingdom a person who plays the tuba in an orchestra is known simply as a tuba player; in a brass band or military band they are known as a bass player.
