On July 3, Charlie Gilbert would have celebrated her 51st birthday. I am sure it would have been filled with lots of good food and drinks. Probably some Facetime calls and Zoom birthday wishes as we all deal with this pandemic.
To celebrate Charlie’s birthday virtually, Brian Gilbert has declared July 3rd an official holiday known as Lemon Cupcake Day. Here’s what Brian posted in the event page on Facebook:
“July 3rd would’ve been Charlie’s 51st bday. I’m officially renaming that day to Lemon Cupcake Day. You can celebrate wherever you are by eating a lemon cupcake with lemon icing. You can eat as many lemon cupcakes as you’d like. There are no limits. 😂😂😂”
The event will be held across the world, and is open to anyone who loves Charlie or lemon cupcakes. I am sure there is plenty of overlap because Charlie was beloved, and even though I have yet to have a lemon cupcake, they sound pretty good.
I will be away for the week, but we will be making lemon cupcakes in memory of Charlie to celebrate her birthday.
