Celebrate Today is a guided journal that provides a reason to revel every day of the year. It is inspired by the National Day Calendar, a compilation of appreciation days for everything from pizza to popsicles. Beginning in January and ending in December, each page is dedicated to trying something new, enjoying the little things, and feeling a sense of accomplishment by marking the passage of time in a journal. For example, March 5 is “Learn What Your Name Means Day,” so do a little research into your moniker and then write an acrostic poem based on its letters. Some days involve performing good deeds, others require eating a donut, and a few recommend a little soul searching. Illustrated by Hello!Lucky, a trendsetting design studio, the entire Celebrate Today collection includes a dot-gridded journal, a paperback notebook, and a book of stickers designed for decorating a planner.
