Cariloha Friday! plus Columbus Day weekend. Not too shabby. I know Columbus Day is typically not a work day off for most people in the United States, but it’s still a memorable, significant holiday. Every October, it gets a prominent spot on the calendar – maybe not since 1492, but ever since I can remember. So why not enjoy it and make your own Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria boats to race in the bath tub or swimming pool. Have a good time with old Christopher Columbus – he would’ve wanted it that way, I’m sure.
As you venture out this autumn weekend, be sure to get your Cariloha style on, letting it inspire your unique talents to do something new for a change. Show your gratitude for friends, neighbors and family.
Smile wide and do something nice for a friend or a teacher – maybe swing by McDonald’s as well (today), then, try to be as frugal as possible and speak with a German accent over a delicious plate of bratwurst with a touch of garlic (tomorrow), next, take time to smell the roses and make your own frappe (Sunday), finally, discover Columbus Day anew and play a few games of tag (Monday). Happy Columbus Day Weekend!
However you choose to approach your weekend, make it a memorable time and don’t forget to wrap up in your Cariloha bamboo-soft clothing, sheets or towels every day.
