After the year we’ve all had, now is the perfect time to bring some fun back into our lives. There are plenty of holidays happening in April that you could easily celebrate now that the weather is getting nicer. Gather outside with your friends or family and celebrate these five fun holidays!
April Fool’s Day
April Fool’s Day is always a classic. This is the perfect way to pull some innocent pranks on your friends or family to bring some laughter into your life. This is also a great way to tap into your creative side and have fun with the ones you love.
National Deep Dish Pizza Day
April 5 is the day to celebrate deep dish pizza. If you’re in the Chicagoland area on this day, make sure to pick up your favorite deep dish for dinner. Some of the classics include Lou Malnati’s, Giordanos, and Gino’s East. However, if you’re stuck in Champaign for the day, check out Papa Del’s for a local deep dish option.
National Pet Day
If we didn’t have reason enough to celebrate our beloved pets, April 11 is the perfect excuse to give them some extra special attention. Give them their favorite treats and maybe even do a fun activity with them to celebrate them!
April 22 is the ideal time to show the Earth how much you care. This day is dedicated to preserving our home and is a time for everyone to come together for a good cause. Turn off your lights, and enjoy nature with friends or family!
International Dance Day
April 29 is the day to put on your favorite music and dance like no one’s watching. Whether you dance alone or with friends, there is no better opportunity to let your hair down and have some fun!
