Forget New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day…

This is the most important day of the year. No, really! After all, milk is a true superfood that contains a whole variety of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that your body needs. Milk is a great source of protein, too. What do those other days give you? A headache and sugar shock, that’s what. Nope, Jan. 11 is the day to really celebrate.

February 11 is National Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk Day!

February 11 is National Dont Cry Over Spilled Milk Day

Okay, so this is really a thing, apparently.

At first it seems, well, silly. National Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk Day? Really? But when you delve into the proverb we all know so well, it starts to make a little more sense. After all, a modern version of it would be something akin to “don’t sweat the small stuff.” And whose life wouldn’t be made just a little bit better with that little attitude adjustment, right?
