Tasha Tudor Day Turns Fourteen

About fourteen years ago, Tasha Tudor admirer Clarice Fox-Hughes of the Storybook Woods blog, dubbed Tasha Tudor’s August 28th birthday Tasha Tudor Day. She said “Really I would love it if the whole world would stop and remember her. This could simply be sitting in your garden with a cup of tea, reading her books, doing a sketch or just stopping to smell the roses. On Tasha Tudor’s birthday, let us all remember her and how she has inspired us to live.” Her idea caught on and people the world over began celebrating Tasha’s birthday.

This year, on what would have been Tasha Tudor’s 107th birthday, we encourage you to reflect on what Tasha’s life meant to you. You may wish to pull out her books, whether you have one title or a large pile, and sink into their pages once again. Perhaps make a pot of tea and take a moment to look upon all the good in your life with Tasha’s example of ‘taking joy.’

Or if you prefer a more lively celebration, gather friends and loved ones to make a craft, enjoy cake, ice tea and watch the documentary Take Joy

If you are fortunate to live near one of our existing Chapters, you are invited to join in the festivities. Remember, you do not need to be a member to participate.
