- Peaches & Paprika Winter Celebrations

- Peaches & Paprika Autumn Celebrations
Celebrating Cats in Spring
Spring Celebrations, covering the months of April, May and June was recently released, February 2021. This would make a delightful gift on Easter or Mother’s Day for the cat people in your life. And let’s not forget birthdays and Father’s Day for those cat loving dudes.
In April, the two calicos celebrate National Hairstylist Day where they try on some super cool hairdo’s. In May, the cat don nurses uniforms for Nurses’ Day.
In June, there’s National Kissing Day, and the two, who often are at odds with one another – as most siblings are – give one another a begrudging kiss.
Can you image what these two mischievous felines can do on Walk on the Wild Side Day, Love a Tree Day, May Day, Earth Day and National Pet Parents Day?
Check out Paws list of cat holidays, and while very thorough, we don’t have Celebration’s quirky holidays.
The Celebration series is a breath of fresh air, taking us to a world of humor and wild imagination, far away from the stresses and strains of our everyday lives. We can just imagine what it would be like to be having as much fun as these two kitties.
Celebrating Cats in Summer
In the Summer Celebrations, the two charming tiger calicos of Facebook fame celebrate some fun and unique summer holidays taking place in July, August and September. In July the cats celebrate National Hammock Day and Ice Cream Day.
August brings delicious holidays such as National Marshmallow Day and Kiss and Make Up Day.
Celebrating Cats in Autumn
September finds the two cats looking fierce on Meow Like a Pirate Day, a special cat holiday. Cats might have been pirates for all we know. After-all, they were employed as mousers on some of the earliest ocean voyagers, keeping the rodents away from the food needed to keep the sailors in sea worthy shape.
Traditional holidays such as Independence Day and Labor Day are observed as well.
Needless to say, these two cats get super excited to dress up for Halloween, and show their patriotism on Veteran’s Day. But did you know Nov. 12 is National Happy Hour Day? That’s one to put on the calendar.
Peaches & Paprika’s Winter Celebrations
In The Winter Celebrations, we find National Goof Off Day (March 22) and you can imaging these kitties leaning back, being silly and enjoying their leisure.
On March 16, Happy Worldwide Quilting Day pictures the mischievous cats with their kitties have their own quilt. Who would have guessed? Wonder who made it?
On National Jewel Day, March 13, we find these two capricious calicos dressed in very exotic jewels, fit for a queen. But then again, cats think they are goddesses, so why wouldn’t they dress up like royalty?
And on March 6, National Dentist’s Day, author Carol Lowbeer asks, ‘What if you looked up for your dentist’s chair, and noticed your dentists were cats?’ It would be quite a surprise to say the least.
Oh, so many cat celebrations
Of course, we have the traditional holidays, like St. Patrick’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and New Years Day, but did you know January 2 is National Hangover Day, and we find Peaches and Paprika recovering from too much Meowijuana. (They should have known better.)
There are also celebrations for National Button Day, Mitten Tree Day, Christmas Tree Day, and Poinsetta Day. We join the mischievous duo as they get all a twitter over shopping on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and get ready for an exciting holiday season as they wish everyone a Happy Catmus and Catukah!
There’s oh so many more holidays, and we suggest you get your copy of Peaches & Paprika’s Celebration series so you can be sure to observe all these fun holidays with your cats or your human friends. Your humans are bound to be impressed cause I’ll bet they never heard of some of these quirky celebrations.
All Celebration Books are delightfully illustrated as we find Peaches and Paprika going on a balloon ride. going camping, paddling a canoe, celebrating Popcorn Day.
Peaches absolutely relishes a couple of days named after her: Peaches & Cream Day and Peach Pie Day. She really thinks they were named after her.
This book makes a perfect small gift for an animal lover or for any seasonal occasion. It is part of a series which includes the other three seasons of the year.
