Today we celebrate:

National Peanut Butter Day – it is believed probable that the first people to crush peanuts into a paste were the Aztecs. Peanut paste was turned into more of a peanut buttery type substance similar to the peanut butter we know and love today in the 1890's with various patents. One of which was by Dr. John Harvey Kellogg who served it to his patients at his Battle Creek Sanitarium.

National Beer Can Appreciation Day – on this day in 1935, the first beers were served in cans and the rest is history.

National Compliment Day – one of the easiest days you will ever celebrate. Simply compliment everyone you can today.

National Eskimo Pie Patent Day – Christian Kent Nelson invented the I-Scream-Bar somewhere around 1920. His inspiration was supposedly seeing a child trying to decide between buying ice cream or candy because he didn't have enough money for both. It was renamed the Eskimo Pie shortly after he received his patent on this day in 1920 or 1921.

Global Belly Laugh Day - Small chuckles and little teehee's will not do today. Today is a day for big, from your stomach, belly laughs. Join the belly laugh bounced around the world today at 1:24pm here on the East Coast.

Talk Like A Grizzled Prospector Day – if you thought Talk Like A Pirate Day was fun, here's another one for you. First, ya gots ta figger out a name fer yerself. Sumthin grizzly like Cactus Pete. Today back there in '48, James Marshall found himself the first great big ol' nugget up there at Sutter's Mill.

Women's Healthy Weight Day – A healthy weight is different for everyone. So today we honor women of all shapes and sizes who strive to be a healthy weight no matter what that number on the scale happens to be.

You can celebrate today with a nice peanut butter and jelly sandwich, along with a can of beer to drink, and an eskimo pie for desert, then offer compliments to your chef while sharing a great big belly laugh (at 1:24pm). All of the above must be ordered as if you were a grizzled prospector and the rest of your day should be spent exercising and eating fruit and vegetables to maintain a healthy weight.
