April's ALSO National Kite Flying Month! (Tuesday's Truths Week 80)
It's already the third Tuesday in April, and so for this week's Tuesday's Truths, I'm calling on the figurine featured in the image atop this entry to help me remind peeps that the month of April is National Kite Month. It is also known to be National Gardening and Lawn Month (which I wrote about in a prior entry here on Blogger) as well as being known to be National Poetry Month (which I also discussed in a previous posting here on Blogger).
In any event, according to a web-page, "Every year in April Kite enthusiasts across North America celebrate the history and the future of the world’s favorite pastime by letting their kites fly. It is a month to celebrate the joy and happiness that comes from letting out the line, letting your kite catch the wind, and letting that kite soar high into the sky."
Of course if you are like Charlie Brown, your joy and happiness can turn into frustration, as evidenced in the Peanuts comic strip (which was evidently published on April 12, 1956) that is posted directly below.
