Dad's Treehouse Personalized --11 x 8.5 Print by sweetb

One thing I struggle with in my business is planning ahead for holidays and events. In our business it's important to be on top of things so we can plan new items, order supplies and remind our customers of deadlines.

I'm usually more of an "in the moment" girl. I know there are others like me out there so I'm trying to help us out by giving a little calendar reminder. I'm including Christian but also Jewish Holidays as they are relevant for Christian history (and I find them interesting). If I've forgotten any major holidays (and it's likely with so many countries represented on our team), please leave a comment.

Maybe I'll remember to order a Fathers Day card from Etsy this year on time . . .

I am what some call a "completed Jewish" person. I come from a long line of Jewish moms - Sophie-my great-grandma- Edith-my grandma and of course Sylvia-my mom. I love the Jewish Holidays.

It is nice that you have given these to us and if I was not one of those in the moment kind of people I would take full use of it. And I do have a little fascination with Jewish holidays too.
