With many businesses and restaurants temporarily (or permanently) closed, I have spent much of my spare time going outdoors with my family. We go on hikes and walks whenever we have the chance. Today is Play Outside Day, so take this as a sign to get out there and enjoy some fresh air. Take a deep breath and let your worries float away.
(And I would suggest taking one of these promotional Maglights with you in case it gets dark while you’re out!)
The best way to check off this list and hold yourself accountable? Have your family, friends, and coworkers be your support team. Share healthy recipes at work and have a cookoff competition! See who can log the most steps on your team walks! Get the whole group matching red Maglite flashlights so that you can all go on walks or runs no matter the time of day!
Whom do we rely on to protect our communities day and night? Our law enforcement officers are the dedicated people who put their lives at risk to keep our society safe. Today is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D.), a day that gives us the opportunity to thank our hard-working law enforcement officers by recognizing the sacrifices they make daily.
The day is here. Today is the winter solstice, the shortest, darkest day of the year. How are you going to find your keys at 5:00 tonight when you’re busy on your phone but need a flashlight? Don’t hang up your phone in order to use its flashlight- grab your trusty Maglite flashlight out of your purse or pocket. What about when you’re getting the mail or taking the dog for a walk tonight? Throw your American-made Maglite flashlight into your coat pocket and head on out- ready and capable to enjoy the rest of your evening.
It’s the Thursday before Christmas and you’re getting ready to wrap your gift for your Secret Santa holiday party. But wait, you got sidetracked this week and forgot to shop for it! Even Amazon Prime won’t deliver within an hour of ordering. So what should you do?? Here’s some advice- go through that lonely shelf in your closet.. there’s always a stash of unused gifts people have given you throughout the year that either you already have, don’t need… or don’t like. Regift one of those! As long as it’s unused, in new condition, and something you know that person will like! But trust me, the items that you won’t ever think of regifting are those shiny, reliable Maglite flashlights on your counter or in your purse. You’ll never want those trusty guys to ever leave your side.
Today marks the 79th anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Forever “a date which will live in infamy,” it was a day that caught our country by surprise and lit a fire that only the Allies would be able to extinguish.
This weekend you can honor those killed and injured in the attack by:
What is the bravest thing you’ve ever done? For a lot of us, that might be something as minute as killing that large spider in the corner of your bathroom. Or maybe you are a brave woman who has gone through childbirth (or you are the brave husband who stood beside her). Bravery has many faces. For a very special group of Americans, the bravest thing they’ve done is protect and defend our country in times of war.
Today is Veterans Day, a very special day in which Americans celebrate and honor all military veterans. The holiday originated as Armistice Day in 1919, as it honored the ending of WWI on the 11th hour of 11th day of 11th month in 1918. But in 1954, after the end of WWII, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day in order to honor American veterans of all wars, not just those who fought in WWI.
What better way to celebrate and thank our veterans than with an American flag mini Maglite flashlights. Handing them out at your company or town’s Veterans Day celebration will brighten up everyone’s day.
