From Mardi Gras to Ferris Bueller's Day Off, this optimistic, life-affirming diary of the year has good news for every day
Every day newspapers report misery, bad times, death, destruction, meltdown, and recession, and there’s always some grump on the television constantly reporting about all the evil things going in the world. And they’re right. But don’t let that get you down. Look on the bright side of life! Hilarious, uplifting, and fun-spirited, this diary is full of fun facts, good-news trivia, and such memorable dates as July 5th (The day the bikini was introduced), October 15th (the Mexican Wave was invented), and December 31st (Hogmanay). This is a celebration of the good days throughout history, and a nice pick-me-up in these worrying and troubled times. There are so many reasons to be happy!
