There seems to be a day for everything. There’s a Valentine’s Day, there’s a Sweetheart Day, there’s a Father’s Day and a Mother’s Day; I bet there’s even a Peanut Butter Day or a Love Your Cat Day. I wasn’t aware of this, but there’s actually a National Michigan Day and it happened yesterday on January 18th. Some days seem frivolous, but Michigan Day actually makes sense. Why? Because Michigan is a fun place to live!
You get all four seasons here. The one we’re in now, you get cross country skiing, downhill skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and some hunting seasons are still open. And then the Spring comes and some people start anticipating going to up north cottages and enjoying time on our great lakes. We live in one of the greatest states with water. In the summer people can be out boating and even in the winter you’ll find Michiganders out running, walking, and fishing on the frozen ice.
We’ve got great carnivals from summer to winter and with each season we can find something to celebrate in this great mitten of ours.
I don’t want to disparage any other state specifically, especially a certain one right south of us that I won’t even mention by name, but you drive through other states and they’re rather boring! But, the state of Michigan – with the water, the wildlife and the dunes, the snow and the beauty of each season – is a great state to live in! So, if you’ve heard those commercials with Tim Allen as the spokesperson, it is pure Michigan, and it’s a great state to live in.
If you’re lucky enough to be able to point out where you live on your hand, then get out there and enjoy our great state!
