Today we celebrate:

National Pina Colada Day – Coconut, pineapple and rum...a delicious combination.

Clerihew Day – Edmund Clerihew Bentley, born on this day in 1875, was a journalist and the author of a detective novel, Trent's Last Case. He is best known for a verse he created in a form that is now known as the clerihew. Two rhyming couplets of differing lengths:

Edmund's middle name was Clerihew
A name possessed by very few,
But verses by Mr. Bentley
Succeeded eminently.

Terry Bears' Picnic Day – This is a day to have a picnic with your teddy bear. Feel free to borrow one from your kids but better yet, make this a family event and bring all the kids and all of their teddy bears. I bet even the older kids will enjoy a fun family day like this.

To celebrate today, create some clerihew verses with your kids and feel free to get silly with it. Then plan a picnic with your kids and their teddy bears. Make sure you pack some pina coladas for yourself and your significant other to enjoy as long as you are over 21.
