Today we celebrate:

National Lollipop Day – Everybody loves a lollipop. It doesn't seem to matter how old you are, they make you feel young again.

Moon Day – This is the fifth annual celebration of space exploration. Find an observatory or museum near you and see if they have any special events, exhibits, and activities today.

Toss Away the “Could Haves” and “Should Haves” Day – Celebrated on the third Saturday in July, this is a day to write down your “could haves” and “should haves” on a piece of paper and throw it away into the garbage. Make a resolution to never live in the past and wallow in your regrets. You can't change anything that has happened, you can only chose to make life better today.

National Woodie Wagon Day – Back in the 1940's and until 1951, car makers used wood to accent the outside of automobiles. Today we celebrate this American symbol of a casual lifestyle. I'm not too certain why this sort of decoration on your vehicle indicates a casual lifestyle so perhaps someone out there can enlighten me on this.

Ugly Truck Day – Although there is some disagreement about whether this day is celebrated today or June 20th, it seemed that the most reliable looking information I found put it on this day. If you have an ugly, old truck sitting in your yard rusting slowly into nothingness, this is the day for you. If it will run, take it out for a drive and show it off today. If it won't run, take a picture of it and show it off to everyone you meet. Maybe you can join an ugly truck competition today. You won't have to look too hard in order to find one.

To celebrate today, take a picture of your ugly truck, make a bunch of copies, grab a bag of lollipops, decorate your car to look like a woodie wagon and drive around town handing out lollipops and truck pictures to everyone you meet. When you run out of lollipops and pictures, head to an observatory to join in the Moon Day celebrations. When you get tired of that, go home and write down all of your “could haves” and “should haves” and throw it into the trash. There don't you feel like a big weight has lifted off your shoulders?
