Today we celebrate:
National English Toffee Day – did you know that toffee is mostly sugar and water, so it must be easy to make. Here's a recipe if you want to give it a try today.

Bubble Bath Day – I haven't had a bubble bath in years but today is a great day to relax in a warm tub full of bubbles with a glass of wine on the sitting next to you. Maybe play a little music and burn a little incense if you like. Just make sure you don't fall asleep.

National Male Watcher's Day – Today the women have permission to turn the tables on the men and publicly admire any man you find to be attractive. So ogle to your hearts content.

Show And Tell At Work Day – Why should Kindergarteners have all the fun? Find something interesting that you have done and show and tell your boss and/or coworkers today.

Argyle Day – Argyle, for those who are not aware, is a pattern of colored diamond shaped blocks on clothing. Don't feel bad, I had to look up the explanation, too. Fashion is not my forte. But today is the day to find something argyle hiding in your closet and wear it for all to see.

Earth's Rotation Day – Obviously the earth rotates every day, but for some reason, whoever created this day decided we needed to be reminded of that fact.

Midwife's Day or Women's Day – This is a Greek holiday, but I like it and I think it should be celebrated here too! On this day, women in Greece stop doing housework and instead spend time in cafe's socializing while their husbands do the housework and take care of the kids. The web site I found said that in some villages, men that are found outside are drenched with cold water.

War On Poverty Day – On this day in 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson declared war on poverty during his State of the Union address. His policies resulted in increasing support for Roosevelt's policies from decades before as well as starting new welfare programs.

Well, to consolidate celebrations today, clearly you need to wear something in an Argyle pattern, be aware of the rotation of the earth and not complain about welfare. That's easy for some of us, hard for others. Then we can do a little show and tell presentation at work (if you work at home, show and tell with your spouse and/or children and/or animals) using the toffee that you made that morning as your exhibit, make sure you go out for lunch so you can ogle the men in the area. If you're Greek, you can come home to a clean house with happy and well cared for children, courtesy of your husband, and you can wrap it all up with a luxurious soak in a relaxing bubble bath. Have fun!
