April is especially known for its spring showers, so it’s no coincidence that National Find a Rainbow Day falls during the year’s most rainy month.

If you’d rather stay warm and dry, April also has multiple homey holidays to keep you entertained indoors. Stay warm and cozy on National Self Care Day, National Pajama Day, and National Tea Day, or tackle some crafts and spring cleaning projects on National DIY Day, National Handmade Day, National Laundry Day, and National Get Organized Day.

(For those less skilled in the kitchen, National Hostess Twinkie Day offers a convenient store-bought alternative.)
