Etsy Treasury: Earmuffs Day (Every Day is a Holiday)

My first reaction when I came across Earmuffs Day was “Why is this holiday set in the middle of March?” After all, we’re only a week or so away from the official start of spring, and earmuffs are most handy in the dead of winter to keep our ears protected from the harsh cold. It was in the 60s three days ago for crying out loud! And then I remembered going outside to take the garbage out the previous morning. The temperature had plummeted to about 20 degrees with wind gusts that nearly knocked my off my front steps. (Not even joking about that last part. I was still holding the screen door handle when the wind blasted the door wide open with such force that it nearly pulled me right off the stoop.) Spring may be around the corner, but winter has not let up on the crazy firm grasp it’s held on us this season. So I guess celebrating Earmuffs Day in mid-March serves as a gentle reminder that you just might still need to bundle up. Spring will get here when she’s damn good and ready.

There are some adorable earmuffs to be found on Etsy! Some are crocheted, some are fur. Some are more like bands you wear around your head, some are designed more like classic headphones. Regardless of what kind you prefer or which color suits your fancy, take a look at what these Etsians have to offer your delicate ears! Perhaps you’ll find the pair that will keep you a little warmer next winter! Remember to see my other Every Day is a Holiday treasuries here!

“Every Day is a Holiday” is my Etsy Treasury project for 2014. I’m hoping to find unique and beautiful items that exemplify the holiday of the day—the sillier and weirder, the better! What’s better than finding something worth celebrating each and every day?

Etsy Treasury: Irish Coffee Day (Every Day is a Holiday)

When you were a kid, you probably sipped a nice cup of hot cocoa once you came inside after playing in the freshly fallen snow on a cold winter’s day. It would warm you from the inside out and make you smile, and successfully convince you that all was right with the world.

Flash forward to adulthood, when tons of snow outside often means shoveling the driveway, chipping the ice off your car, and hoping you don’t pull something in your back or slip on the icy front steps. After all that work in blindingly cold weather, does a hot cocoa really cut it? How about an Irish coffee instead? Yup, that’ll hit the spot!

Irish Coffee Day celebrates the original caffeine and alcohol combo (sorry Four Loko and Red Bull and vodka). Invented in the 1940s, Irish coffee blends fine Irish whiskey (like Jameson) with freshly brewed coffee and a dollop of whipped cream. Relaxation and invigoration all in one! And it tastes divine! Ahhhhh, mmmmmmm… Now I really want one… 🙂

My treasury is a collection of all sorts of things inspired by this soul-warming beverage. Candles, soaps, edibles, as well as mugs specially designed to hold this magical elixir. So take a look, visit the shops, favorite their wares, and have yourself an Irish coffee today! Remember, you can see my other Every Day is a Holiday treasuries on Etsy right here!
