Today's Holidays!!! Yes, An Odd Holiday Every Day!!! by Alexis

Hello, mi amigos!

Since Ash and I are odd, I decided to go with her random theme today, and looked up today's holidays... Did you know that every single day is a holiday? 'Tis true!!! Every single day, month, week, are all used to celebrate something or other. There's even a "Talk Like A Pirate" Day (September 19th), and my fave, "Mad Hatter" Day (October 16th).

So what shall you celebrate or honor today? It's all up to you! Here are the official holidays for today, April 7th, and tomorrow, April 8th (just in case it's too late for you to take the time today)...

April 7th:
  • ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) Day
  • International Beaver Day
  • National Day of Hope
  • International Pillow Fight Day
  • No Housework Day
  • Paraprofessional Appreciation Day
  • World Health Day
  • Caramel Popcorn Day
  • International Beaver Day
  • International Snailpapers Day
  • Metric System Day
  • Teapot Dome Scandal Begins
  • National Beer Day
  • National Coffee Cake Day
  • Public Television Day
  • Matches First for Sale, 1827
  • No Housework Day
  • HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day)
  • It's the end of the following weeks:
    • International Pooper-Scooper Week: 1-7
    • Laugh at Work Week: 1-7
    • Golden Rule Week: 1-7
    • Medication Safety Week: 1-7
    • Testicular Cancer Awareness Week: 1-7 (a.k.a. Get A Grip Day! lol)
    • Publicity Stunt Week: 1-7
So, for today, don't clean your house, but drink some beer, eat some junk food, be healthy, go to another country and smack people upside their heads with pillows, and, while you're there, buy a beaver. All while on camera.

April 8th:
  • 20 Days Till My Birthday (Yeah, not a holiday, but I'm going to include it here, lol)
  • Buddha Day
  • Zoo Lover's Day

  • National Empenada Day
  • All Ours Day
Claim everything is yours (scream "MINE!" like a toddler while yanking things away from people). Then draw a picture of a bird at the zoo on an index card and trade it with another adult for their bird drawing, but be very Zen about it all whilst eating an empenada.

Both are included in:
