About Renewal Day
When is Renewal Day? This holiday is always celebrated on May 4
As spring brings a rejuvenation of nature, so too does Renewal Day for many facets of your life. It’s a day of new and old beginnings. This May 4 holiday is a time of rebirth and regeneration, and to mend and renew relationships with family and friends. It is a re-start, an opportunity to rejuvenate and restore things. Today can be a positive force in making your life better and more complete.
Things get old and out of sorts. We lose touch with friends, loved ones, and relationships. For whatever reason, we “let “it” go. Well, whatever “it” is, today is the day to renew it, rejuvenate it, and bring the spark back into it.
When we think of “renewal”, we often think of relationships. We vow our marriage will never get old. But, it does. We swear we will remain close to our parents and siblings. But over the years, we don’t. With a hug and a tear, we tell our college roommate we will call and write. All too quickly, the demands of everyday life keep us from calling or writing. …get the picture?
Renewal Day is not limited to renewing relationships and social issues. You can also renew:
- Your nails
- Hair color and/or style.
- Your figure
- Hardwood floors
- The shine on your car
- Your driver’s license
- A favorite magazine subscription
Get the picture? Good. Now, get into Renewal Day!

“I saw a study that said speaking in front of a crowd is considered the number one fear of the average person. Number two was death. This means to the average person, if you have to be at a funeral, you would rather be in the casket than doing the eulogy.” – – Jerry Seinfeld
