Get Your Happiness on in June!
At Isle Casino Hotel® Black Hawk, we believe that life should be an adventure. If you've been stuck in a rut and you’re ready to let loose and find happiness, there's no better time than sun-soaked June. As part of our "Play More. Be Happy" mantra, we invite you to join in and get happy by participating in these holidays.
June 1st: Say Something Nice Day
The first day of June is National Say Something Nice Day, which originated in Charleston to fight bullying and encourage common courtesy, something today's modern and busy world seems to lack.
Participating in this unofficial holiday is as easy as it sounds. Everywhere you go today, make the effort to say something nice. Give your cashier a compliment, thank your co-worker for the help, or call up a friend to let them know you were thinking about them.
While Say Something Nice Day comes just once a year, you can keep the Play More. Be Happy® spirit alive all year long to help make the world a happier place!
June 8th: National Best Friends Day
Your best friend is someone you count on; share your secrets, hopes and sorrows with; and someone who you can be yourself with. Celebrate National Best Friends Day by letting your best friend know just how much they mean to you!
If your best friend is miles away, make a phone call to catch up. If you're lucky enough to have a best friend in town, come up with a fun way to celebrate together. Take them out for a fun night of gaming and entertainment, followed by a delectable dinner at one of our dining options. Whatever you do, make sure you thank your best friend for all of the past memories, and the ones yet to come!
June 14th: National Strawberry Shortcake Day
Strawberry Shortcake is a great summer snack, whether it's served on delicious sponge cake or a shortcake biscuit. With strawberry season in full swing, it's the perfect time for this sweet treat. If you feel up to making your own strawberry shortcake at home, swing by the bakery at Tradewinds Marketplace® to see the daily special!
June 15th: National Smile Power Day
"Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy." -Thich Nhat Hanh
June 15th is a day for you to share the power of a smile, whether it's offered to a stranger you pass on the street or a friend who could use one. A smile is a powerful thing that can actually uplift your mood and change your actions. Smiles are universal, with the same meaning around the world. They're also contagious! It's hard to frown when you see someone else smiling.
Spend today spreading a little joy and improving your own spirit to see what a difference a smile can make.
June 18th: National Splurge Day
This is a day all about doing something special for yourself to ditch stress and remedy a busy schedule. Your splurge may be treating yourself to a vacation or a day of pampering, or it may be something as simple as enjoying a slice of pie.
You don't need to go big for National Splurge Day, nor do you need to make it about money or empty out your savings. Instead, think of it as a day to treat yourself to something you normally wouldn't, however big or small!
June 21st: First Day of Summer
Summer's finally here! Kick off the start of the season today by spending some time out in the sunshine. June 21st is also National Daylight Appreciation Day, which recognizes the summer solstice, the longest day of daylight in North America.
Daylight boosts mental health and improves energy levels. The sunlight also lets you soak up Vitamin D. Just be sure to wear sunscreen to prevent sunburn as you're soaking up the rays.
Celebrate this day by having a picnic outside, playing a game of softball with friends, or throwing a summer party in the backyard. If you're planning to stay indoors, be sure to open your windows to let in the light!
Don’t forget, we’ll have lots of promotions going on during June as well! Stop by any day for an instant boost of happiness, and follow us on Facebook® and Twitter® for promotion updates.
