Today we celebrate:
National Apricot Day – Apricots are one of my daughter's favorite fruits. Full of Vitamin A and beta-carotene, they are a delicious and nutritious option if you get tired of peaches. Of course, my other daughter wouldn't touch them if you paid her.

Play God Day – This is meant to be a day where you are inspired to do something good for someone else, but people on the web seem to be wary of well meaning interference that causes more problems than it solves so be cautious of your choice of good deed.

National Static Electricity Day – We've all experienced static electricity. Well today you can show your kids how static electricity will make balloons stick to walls. This Bill Nye the Science Guy video will help.

Balloon Ascension Day – Dig out that hot air balloon you've been keeping in the closet. Today is the day to blow it up and take a ride. This day in 1793 was apparently the first recorded trip in a hot air balloon by Jean Pierre Blanchard and was witnessed by General George Washington.

So after playing by charging small balloons with static electricity and sticking them to the walls, get out that big balloon and go for a ride. You can fly low and toss apricots to all the cheering kids for your good deed.
