In today’s world of social media and endless celebrations, it seems everything you can imagine has a designated day or week or month.  And this month is no exception–it turns out it is “Make a Will Month.”

Curious as to its origins, I did some research to learn more about “Make a Will Month.”  Surprisingly, there’s not much out there explaining how this joyous month came to pass.  There also seems to be a healthy debate as to which month is the official month for wills. Nevertheless, we love a good reason to celebrate and are passionate everyone should have their affairs in order.

Sure, we get it; National “Make a Will Month” may not be as enticing as National Doughnut Day.  But, we promise you will feel much better once you have an estate plan in place.
