Today we celebrate:

Absolutely Incredible Kid Day – This day was created by Camp Fire USA, and is always celebrated on the third Thursday in March, to remind us that kids need positive encouragement in their lives so your job is to write a love letter to your kids or to kids that are important to your life whether they are yours or not. This is one of those goofy sounding things that your kids will scoff at, but will also, in all likelihood, treasure for the rest of their lives.

Companies That Care Day – Also celebrated on the third Thursday, this day encourages employers to recognize the people that help make their company successful and to find ways for the company to make a difference in their community.

Fragrance Day – Today is a day to celebrate smells. What sort of aroma are you giving off today?

International Day For The Elimination Of Racial Discrimination – Today is also a day to do something to promote diversity. How boring would life be if we were all the same? Celebrate differences instead of condemning them.

Memory Day – I think we all have days when our memory is not so good. So today, do something to try to improve your memory. Memory or brain games are a good option. If you can't remember to do that, try walking down memory lane with yourself and spend some time remembering some of the important events in your life.

World Down Syndrome Day – Created seven years ago, this is a day to celebrate the amazing abilities of people with down syndrome. Having a disability only means that you have to work a little harder to achieve what you want to achieve. It does not mean that it is impossible.

National Day Of Action On Syringe Exchange – This is a call to action. Many people are working hard to try to get Congress to reinstate their program of exchanging money for syringes. Apparently it's an attempt to get people to turn their syringes in to the government instead of using them for drugs. The state of the Federal Government right now tells me that this is not going to become a reality this year.

National French Bread Day – Who does not love baguettes. Fresh from the oven, it's a little piece of heaven to a bread lover. Just the thought is making my mouth water and making me want to make some for my family to enjoy.

Single Parent's Day – Being a single parent is a challenge I don't like to contemplate. It's hard enough to be a parent when you have a partner to help you. Today is a day to honor the single parents you know for the very hard work they do. This day was begun by Janice Moglen in 1984.

National Common Courtesy Day – Common courtesy is hard to find these days. Work on teaching your children about this subject today. Please and thank you and holding doors for people goes a long way toward making everyone's day more enjoyable.

Spring Fairy Fun Day – Today is a day for making crafts with your kids, namely anything to do with spring and fairies. Have fun.

To celebrate today, put on some perfume, find a petition to sign on the syringe exchange program and then go over the common courtesies you expect your kids to practice today. Next, if you are a single parent, congratulate yourself on a job well done so far and call up anyone else you know that is a single parent and do the same for them. Write your letters to your kids and leave them on their pillows where they can be found later on. See if you can get your boss to agree to do something that will benefit the community like start a food bank collection. If you know someone with down syndrome, call them up and encourage them to keep trying to reach their goals in life. Find some fun spring fairy crafts you can do with your kids and finally, finish up the day with some baguette and a trip down memory lane while you try to remember the first time you ever had french bread.
