An interesting booklet from the United States Department of Commerce reveals there will be more than 380 special days, weeks and months in 1951. Many of them are of national significance because of historical developments. Others are founded on religious activities. Still others, however, are simply the result of enthusiastic business promoters. April and May seem to be the busiest months, with 48 such events scheduled for each. March is the next busiest, and June, strangely, rates only fourth place. What are a few of the more unusual? Odorless Decoration Week and Large Size Week in January; National Kraut and Frankfurter, Peanut, Table Tennis, Smile, Sew and Save weeks and Pancake Day. In March is Honey for Breakfast Week; in April, National Laugh, Perfect Shipping, National Trimmed-Dress and Large Size weeks; in June, Expectant Fathers Day and National Bow Tie Week, and in October, Save the Horse Week, Sweetest Day
