Today we celebrate:

Whole Grain Sampling Day – Sponsored by the Whole Grain Council, the goal is to have numerous opportunities all day for people to try different whole grains they may have never tried before. Experiment and see what is out there that you can add to your diet.

Education And Sharing Day – Established by presidential proclamation in 1978 and renewed each year since, this day celebrates the birthday of Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson. The Rabbi was an advocate for youth and for education.

National Chocolate Mousse Day – Rich and creamy, sweet and chocolatey, what could be a better dessert?

Don't Go To Work Unless It's Fun Day – If work is a drag, don't go today. Take a fun day off. If, on the other hand, you have fun at your job or your boss has fun activities planned for today, you don't want to miss out on that.

Tweed Day – You appear to have a choice today. You can either celebrate the fabric called tweed by wearing tweed clothing, or you can celebrate the Senator-turned-crook William “Boss” Tweed who was born on this day in 1823. This famous evil-doer stole up to $200 million from the public, which back in the 1800's was a lot more than it is now.

Find A Rainbow Day – If you can find a real rainbow, all the better, but if it's not the right kind of day for that, make your own. There are a multitude of rainbow crafts that you can do with your kids. Be creative!

Pony Express Day – On this day in 1860, the Pony Express began operations. And a braver set of mailmen has never existed in my opinion. The hazards these men endured just to deliver mail were incredible.

Weed Out Hate: Sow The Seeds Of Greatness Day – There is far too much hate going around, we need to get rid of it and spread positive feelings and tolerance for our fellow man.

World Party Day – Begun in 1996, this day is focused on a world wide synchronized celebration hoping to bring about improved social conditions. The idea being that the opposite of war must be a great, big, humongous party.

National Day Of Hope – This is a day to remember children who have been victims of child abuse and neglect.

National Walking Day – Lace up your shoes and step out people, it's exercise and it's environmentally friendly. What more could you ask for?

Paraprofessional Appreciation Day – A paraprofessional is a person trained to assist a professional. You find them in lots of different organizations like schools, lawyer's offices, doctor's offices, etc. Today, all of you paraprofessionals out there, we appreciate you.

To celebrate today, keep the car in the garage because you're wearing tweed and moving with foot power. You're not going to work anyway because that's no fun so you don't need the car. Take a walk into town and find the nearest business that might have a paraprofessional in it so you can tell them how much you appreciate them. Then head to the grocery store for party supplies because you're going to have a party. While you're there, make sure you educate all the people you see about the prevalence of child abuse and the need to rid themselves of their inner hatred and spread love instead, especially towards children. When you get home, have fun decorating your house with rainbows and pony express horse pictures. Then when your guests arrive, serve them whole grains and chocolate mousse.
