It’s here! It’s here!!! International Label Day!!!! If you are like me you were unaware of the existence of International Label Day but I suspect that some of my more savvy friends like Katybeth at Odd Loves Company were already aware of the existence long before me. I was given a heads up to it by Rara who writes over at Rarasaur. Last year she did a fabulous post about it and this year she will do the same. Since I am a member of Team Poblano she invited me to join in the fun this year and you can go see her post featuring all the “entries” this yearby clicking here..
According to The Urban Dictionary this day is all about the following:
International Label Day is celebrated November 21st. This holiday celebrates the beauty of the words we choose to let shape us, the subcultures that we are proud to be part of, and the surprising meaning of the labels we all choose for ourselves!
We all have many labels and unfortunately most often when we think of the word “label” we think of something negative. Labels can define someone in many ways and a negative label is something that sticks with you for life. It can be ugly. It can be hurtful and damaging.
But today I am celebrating labels that are beautiful! Labels that are positive and self affirming. Labels that empower. Labels that separate us from the crowd.
If you could have just one label for yourself on International Label Day—what would it be? Please leave it in the comments—-I really want to create a positive imagine today for International Label Day. Thanks, Rara, for such a great way to celebrate US!!!!
