Do you know what Friday August 25th 2017 is in South Australia? It is FruChocs Appreciation Day. Now, some of you reading this won't even know what FruChocs are. They are a delicious treat consisting of dried apricot coated in chocolate, yum. In other states of Australia they are sold under the name Menz Choc Apricot Balls.

Whilst FruChoc Appreciation Day is a bit of fun and the opportunity to do some commercial promotion for this iconic chocolate treat, there are many other special days, weeks and even months throughout the year which highlight more serious health or social issues. Some are observed in a particular state or country and others are world wide events.

We have-
Kidney Health Week
World Diabetes Day
World Sight Day
Neighbour Day
Mental Health Week
Carers' Week
Adult Learners Week
Seniors Week
Children's Week
National Asthma Week

There is-
Universal Children's Day
White Ribbon Day
International Friendship Day
Red Nose Day
Jeans for Genes Day
Odd Socks Day
Harmony Day
World Stroke Day
Daffodil Day
Purple Day (which is connected to Epilepsy Awareness Month)

Overseas there is Clear Your Clutter Day (I wonder how long it will be before Australia also sees a need to highlight the problems of clutter by devoting a day to decluttering?)

The list of days/weeks/months which are given a special name and events or fundraisers are organised gets longer each year. Sometimes these events result in increased awareness and other times they don't seem to make much difference. And occasionally they are just for fun. Could I have a FruChoc please?

I was in Rundle Mall on FruChocs Appreciation day and met the FruChocs Man, a cheery chap who was happy to pose for photos.
