Today we celebrate:

Frog Jumping Day – I'm not sure where this day came from although I did find speculation that the idea originated from Mark Twain, if not the day itself. It is a day to either jump like a frog, or partake in frog jumping races.

Leprechaun Day – This is a day dedicated to these wonderful, Irish elves. See if you can find one today. If you do, don't let him go until he leads you to his pot of gold.

National Apple Pie Day – Celebrated today and on December 3rd, this is a day to revel in that delicious apple filling and that tender, flaky crust. Hmmmm, I can smell it now. It has consistently ranked at the top of the list on surveys asking people what their favorite dessert is. It is a dish that is older than the Pilgrims who colonized America so it is not really an American dish, but it has become one that is associated with all things American.

National Women's Check-up Day – This is a day for women to make sure they are healthy by going to the doctor for a checkup. I know, you don't have time for that. But you also don't have time for a serious, and possibly avoidable, health issue like diabetes or heart disease. Keep on top of your health and you will have a better chance of catching problems, and fixing them, before they are real problems.

To celebrate today, jump like a frog everywhere you go, while you keep your eyes open and watch for those slippery, tricky leprechauns. If you find one and can keep a hold of it long enough, you'll be rich. If you're a woman, head to the doctor for a checkup, and then indulge in a dessert of apple pie, of course. Enjoy!
