Today we celebrate:

Love Your Pet Day – Today is an easy day to celebrate. I think most of us already love our pets, but today give them a little extra love. It doesn't matter if you have a dog or cat or fish or hermit crab or snake or elephant or even (shudder) a rat. Make sure they know how much you care about them today.

Northern Hemisphere Hoodie Hoo Day – This is a made up holiday from the people at Wellcat Holiday's. You are supposed to go outside at noon (local time) and yell “Hoodie Hoo” in order to chase away winter. This could make for some fun times if your neighbors are watching. Maybe you can get them to join in.

World Day Of Social Justice – A new holiday established by the United Nations in 2007 and begun in 2009. Today we need to recognize the need to work on issues like poverty and unemployment among others. I think we already recognize the need, we just don't know what to do to make meaningful progress on these overwhelming issues.

National Cherry Pie Day – Cherry pies have been around for a long, long time. So maybe you should make or buy a fresh one for dessert tonight.

To celebrate today, give your pet an extra treat and some extra attention today. Even if you don't have a cuddly pet, you can at least talk to it a little bit more than you normally would. At noontime run outside and yell "HOODIE HOO" because that is sure to work to chase away the cold weather.  Then, donate some of your time to a local charity that is involved with social issues that need to be solved. Finish up the day with a nice, warm, melt in your mouth, cherry pie.
