Today we celebrate:

National Oatmeal Cookie Day – This is healthy, isn't it? It has oatmeal, after all. How bad could it be?

Hairstyle Appreciation Day – When you look great, you feel great. A fabulous hairstyle goes a long way to making you look great so have some mirrors around so you can appreciate how wonderful you look today.

National Honesty Day – Created by M. Hirsh Goldberg in the early 1990's to celebrate honesty. He chose the last day in April for this day because the first day in April celebrates falsehoods. The idea is that if anyone asks you a question today, you must answer it truthfully. And if you ask someone a question today, they must answer it truthfully (as long as you make sure they know what day it is today.) At the time, Mr. Goldberg was working on writing a book about lies told over the course of history so cynics believed this day was created to draw attention to his book.

Bugs Bunny Day – On this day in 1938, Bugs Bunny debuted in the cartoon short Porky's Hare Hunt. Bugs looked and sounded very different then but that was definitely him.

International Jazz Day – This years host city is Istanbul. Special Jazz events will be occurring all over the world today, but Istanbul will be the location of the biggest and best so if you are a true Jazz lover, that is where you need to be.

Dia De Los Ninos/ Dia De Los Libros Day – This is a day that recognizes the importance of literacy for all children from all walks of life. The goal is to connect children with books for the purpose of learning new things.

Spank Out Day – This is a day for spreading the word that spanking is not the best disciplinary option. A fact for some, an opinion for others, I'm not completely sold on it as I've seen lots of people who I feel really could benefit from a good whack on the rump.

Walpurgis Night – A traditional spring festival celebrated on this day or May 1st in large parts of Central and Northern Europe. It is celebrated with bonfires and dancing in honor of Saint Walpurga, an English missionary who lived in the 700's.

To celebrate today, get a new sexy hairstyle, then fly over to Istanbul to enjoy some jazz music before coming home to watch some Bugs Bunny cartoons and eat some oatmeal cookies with the kids. When your spouse asks you where you've been make sure you tell the truth. Then read some books to the kids and refrain from spanking them when they decide to dump apple juice all over your new couch.
