June 22: Onion Rings Day – Of course, a summer break isn’t complete without some crunchies to snack with. With onion rings, you are sure to make your day better.

(Ready some napkins though, you might cry with these onions.)
June 23: National Pink Day – We’ve had International Day of Pink already, but we celebrated it again, this time highlighting the color pink. Then again, who says pinks are for girls?
