December 14 is Monkey Day

If you have been following Creative Bug on the Loose, you will see that Lisa from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles has been keeping us informed of all the Celebrations taking place around the world. Well, apparently today is Monkey Day. What?*! Well, I love Monkeys, so of course I had to investigate this further.

It is said that this holiday was started in 2000 by art student, Casey Sorrow, over at Michigan State University. It became popular when he and a fellow student Eric Millikin began to use Monkey Day in their Artwork and Fetus-X comic strips. It is now celebrated in countries like the U.S., Canada, Germany and the U.K.

The day is described by Hallmark as the "one day when monkey business is actually encouraged." Some of the activities encouraged are going on shopping sprees, eating Ben & Jerry's  Chunky Monkey ice cream and spending the day at the zoo.

Well, in honor of Monkey Day, I have created a special card. If you recall, CBD has sock monkey digitals, so of course I had to use one of those.

Lets Monkey Around

This would be a great Valentine's Day card! If you would like to see my other cards featuring the Sock Monkeys here are the links:  Monkey Jumpin on the Bed and Manfred the Circus Monkey.

So enjoy your Monkey Day!
