how important are these dates?

It seems that the latest trend is to allocate a whole month to raising awareness of issues. It began with ‘Movember’, which I believe started in Australia where men were encouraged to grow a moustache (a ‘mo’) to raise awareness of testicular cancer. We are now in ‘Stoptober’ where people are encouraged to stop smoking. Where will it lead? Well…

Teasember – not a month of drinking hot leaf-based beverages but a month to raise awareness of those who are constantly teased.

Januwary – a month to raise awareness of those who are cautious.

Fibruary – a month to raise awareness of compulsive lying.

Parch – a month to raise awareness of the need to quench thirst.

Haypril – a month to raise awareness of hayfever suffering (could be extended to include all allergies).

Nay – a month to raise awareness of gainsaying (or horse speech).

Chewne – a month to raise awareness of the impact of nibbling one’s fingernails.

D’youlie – (linked to Fibruary) – a month to raise awareness of those who suspect everyone else of being a compulsive fibber.

Rawgust – a month to raise awareness of the benefits of eating raw vegetables (and the flatulent side effects).

Septumber – a month to raise awareness of those who have had their nose broken and suffered a displaced septum.

I hope that some of these will become nationally or even internationally observed months of awareness-raising. At the same time, perhaps we could also raise awareness God’s love for everyone. But of course we don’t need a special month for that, you can start now.

Be blessed, be a blessing
