It’s October 15th, and you know what that means: It’s National I Love Lucy Day! Wait, you didn’t know? Now you do. You’re welcome.
That fiery and funny redhead certainly deserves a day all her own. The Hallmark Channel plays reruns nearly every morning so my days always start with the sounds of Lucy talking her way out of trouble and Ricky singing Babalu in the background. It’s one of those shows that never gets old, no matter how many times you watch it.
“I Love Lucy” was declared the greatest television show of all time according to a survey from ABC News and People Magazine. And rightly so. Apart from a few major misses (remember that episode where Lucy “goes” to Scotland and Fred and Ethel are a two-headed dragon?), every episode is classic hijinx with a happy ending.
But it’s also chock-full of life lessons. Nearly everything I know about life today has come from an episode of I Love Lucy.
Do you have a favorite I Love Lucy episode? I’d love to hear!
