Swap Ideas Day

Septermber 10th is Swap Ideas Day

The idea to swap ideas is helpful to anyone that has an open mind, but not everyone has an open mind to swap ideas with.

Have you heard the expression, “Two heads are better than one?”

In researching this holiday, my other head which was the internet looked to see who created this unusual holiday.

The creator of this useful holiday was started by Robert Louis Birch.
