11th April: National Pet Day – I’M Isola Marras Resort 2020

National Pet Day began in 2006 to celebrate the companionship of pets, and remember those that have been abandoned. It encourages people to adopt from shelters. Here’s some bags that will remind you of your pets every time you use them. (Also I’ve been wanting to post this Anya Hindmarch goldfish clutch bag for ages, and I finally have the perfect opportunity!)

12th April: International Day of Human Space Flight - Coach AW2014

12th April: International Day of Human Space Flight – Coach AW2014

This date commemorates the first human space flight, which took place on 12th April 1961, flown by Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin in the Vostok 1 capsule. The above sweater by Stuart Vevers for Coach was inspired by the sweater worn by Danny Torrance in the 1980 film The Shining – there’s plenty of patterns available online if you’d like to try knitting your own.

14th April: National Dolphin Day – Staud Pre-Fall 2023

National Dolphin Day is dedicated to dolphins, an animal associated with the Gemini star sign. I have no idea how or why that connection was made, I’m just passing on the message.
