I NEED TO BE HONEST with you!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No, not every single one of these 50 “holidays” are technically holidays. To me, some are more along the lines of special occasions, such as the start of summer or the football season opener.

One passage is actually a non-fiction about the importance of sunscreen. I included that topic because it hits very close to home for me. It’s wonderful to use during the time of year when things start warming up outside. The coming warmth and sunshine feel like a holiday to me!

Anyways…I believe in complete transparency so there’s never any question as to what you are spending your hard-earned money on. I’m confident that you and your students will enjoy my work.
