This week starts with one of the most significant dates on our Australian calendar – ANZAC Day. This day also holds significance for other countries as we remember those who have served our country. After such an important day, it’s nice that Hug An Australian Day follows. We hope to receive lots of hugs from our friends all around the world! We’re a little nervous about Saturday – World Honesty Day. What truth will be revealed?

Let’s have a look at this week’s themes…

Expanded Daily Themes & Creativity Prompts

25 POPPY :: Today is one of Australia’s most important national occasions, it is ANZAC Day – a day dedicated to those Australians who have lost their lives at war and military service to the country. The Flander’s Poppy is the flower of remembrance and is symbolic on ANZAC Day. Wear your red poppy with pride as we pay respects to the fallen. And if a poppy is hard for you to find the Rosemary herb is another symbolic tribute.

26 STRAYA :: Slang for Australian! And, today is Hug an Australian Day. Nope, we didn’t make that up. Show some love for your Aussie mates today.

27 MOBILITY:: Dogs play an important role in providing independence and mobility to the blind and vision impaired. Today, celebrate your freedom, independence and mobility and, if you can, support your local Guide Dog Institute on International Guide Dogs Day.

28 KINDNESS :: the smallest act of kindness can make a big difference. It’s Pay it Forward Day and time to do a little something, something for somepawdy else.

29 WISH :: Make a wish, on World Wish Day. After being so kind yesterday, you deserve something special – what are you wishing for?

30 TRUTH :: Are you brave enough to share a truth on World Honesty Day?
