Hurray! It is National Pink Day!

Pink Day Musings by Hunter (Hunter1)

I’m tickled pink to announce that June 23rd is National Pink Day.

Who knew? How did I miss that memo? I did do a bit of research and

couldn’t find the origination of this fabulous day, but who cares?

I think we should all just celebrate this delightful day while basking in pink splendor! It’s easy to enjoy and celebrate this holiday. Think pink clothes, pink lipstick, pink toenails, pink lemonade, pink jello, Pink Floyd and of course, pink books!

So while sipping on that pink lady, here’s a few books for all ages that might whet your pink appetite!

Pink by Lili Wilkinson

Ava has a secret. She is tired of her ultracool attitude, ultra-radical politics, and ultrablack clothing. She’s ready to try something new—she’s even ready to be someone new. Someone who fits in, someone with a gorgeous boyfriend, someone who wears pink.

One hot summer day, Pinkalicious gets an idea that is simply pinkerrific—a pink lemonade stand!

Pink Boots and a Machete: My Journey From NFL Cheerleader to National Geographic Explorer by Mireya Mayor

Against all odds, this self-professed former “girly girl” daughter of overprotective Cuban immigrants blossomed from NFL cheerleader to Fulbright Scholar to field scientist and ultimately, quintessential adventurer.

Shrimp: The Endless Quest for Pink Gold by Jack and Anne Rudloe

A deep and expert look not only at an important human food source, but also of the fragile complexity of the ecosystem in which it is created.

The crystal ball will give you answers about love and life… but at what price?

So how will you be celebrating Pink Day?

    Wonderful list of the many manifestations of Pinkishness, Hunter. As I’m not nearly so fashionable to own any pink clothing (and certainly not worthy of anything quite so fabulous as Pink Boots!), I think I’ll spend my Pink day immersed in the various manifestations of Pink Floyd. Pink Day – Rock On!!!

    Hunter – what a Diva worthy tribute to PINK.
    I’d wear a pink tutu if I had one.
    I think I’ll just wear a pink hat and pink shoes and maybe a pink scarf.
    That is if. . . I don’t forget all this by tomorrow morning!
