Oh, For Pete's Sake

One of the less known holidays to celebrate is the special day set aside for the day For Pets Sakes day.

For Pete's Sake Day celebrates one example where an offensive word or phrase is substituted by something more acceptable in society. Other popular terms used include For Crying Out Loud , Sugar and Fudge. Why exactly it is Pete who has been singled out is possibly due to St. Peter.

IT is also a special day to inconvenience yourself. It is simple to inconvenience yourself simply:
  • Encouragement
  • Common courtesy
  • Good manners
  • Acts of kindness (they don’t have to be random)
  • Doing the right thing
  • Acknowledging the positive actions of others
  • Smiling
  • Taking responsibility for yourself
  • Setting a good example
  • Helping others
  • Volunteering for a cause in which you believe
  • Recycling and doing other things which minimize your impact on the environment
  • Driving courteously
  • Making a positive impact with your words and actions
  • Making someone laugh
  • Holding a door open for someone
  • Spending time with your family or significant other
  • Talking on your cell phone only where it won’t disturb others

“The best index to a person’s character is (a) how he treats people who can’t do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can’t fight back.”
