Carpe Diem Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always on February 26
"Seize the day, every day." That's the slogan of Carpe Diem Day. It's straight and to the point. The message is: Live today like there will be no tomorrow. Don't take anything for granted.
Carpe Diem comes from the Roman poet Horace. Literally translated, it
means "Pluck the day". Over the years, this saying has morphed into "Seize
the day", making the meaning much clearer. The intention of this expression
is indeed quite clear. It means you
have today, so make the best of it and enjoy life while you can. You have
today, don't hold back until a tomorrow that is not guaranteed to come. While
you're at it, encourage others in your life to make the most of the present.

History and Origin of Carpe Diem Day:
This holiday was created in 2020 by the friends and family of Yvette Francino, who lives in Superior, Colorado. Yvette lost a good friend, Craig Dunham, to ALS. Her inspiration came from him. He taught her the importance of living each day fully. Yvette has done much since then to promote the importance of living each day to the fullest. Yvette says the goal of this day is to "serve as reminder to live fully despite the many challenges that life throws at you." She also encourages all of us to "not put off to tomorrow doing the things you love - with the people you love - when you can do it today." Her children stated that this day honors both Yvette Francino and her good friend Craig Dunham.
The date was selected as February 26 is Yvette's birthday.
A few websites call this a "National" day. This is incorrect, as the creator calls it "Carpe Diem Day " on her website. We found no presidential proclamation or act of Congress making this a true national day.
