To celebrate today,

National Bagelfest – All bagels, all day long today. Have as many as you can stand. Mix it up a little since bagels come in all kinds of flavors. You might even want to try your hand at making your own. I've done it and they've come out pretty good.

One Voice – On this day, the people of the world will unite and recite the Universal Peace Covenant in one voice. This is a day to unite spiritually as well as vocally in order to proclaim your dedication to achieving world peace.

All Or Nothing Day – This is a day to risk it all, this could be your last day on this planet, after all. You never know what the future will bring so live life like it's your last chance to do whatever it is you have been really wanting to do. Do not, however, be tempted to break any laws today because you could have quite a few years left in this life and you really don't want to spend them in jail.

Aunt And Uncle Day – This is a day to honor your parent's siblings. It is not an official day yet, but there is a movement in the works to try to make it one.

Lumberjack Day – created in 2005 by Marianne Ways and Colleen AF Venable, this is a day to behave like a lumberjack if you know what that type of behavior consists of. Apparently lumberjacks eat a lot of pancakes, talk differently and carry an ax wherever they go.

National Talk In An Elevator Day – This is a day to gather your courage, take a deep breath, in an elevator. Normally, people riding in an elevator with strangers will stay silent which can sometimes feel awkward. So break the silence today.

System Administrator Appreciation Day – System Administrators make our working lives possible these days. You would be hard pressed to find any job that does not in some way rely on a computer system somewhere in order to function and system administrators are the ones who set up the systems, make sure they work properly, back up anything that needs to be backed up and upgrade anything that becomes out of date. Make sure you find one and thank him/her today.

To celebrate today, have a bagel and a bunch of pancakes for breakfast, then call all of your Aunts and Uncles and wish them a great day today in your best lumberjack voice. Then recite the Universal Peace Covenant before you call up all the system administrators you know and thank them for their hard work. Find a building with an elevator and ride up and down until you have company and be brave and talk to them. Don't worry if they act nervous about it, that's normal. Finally, risk everything to do something you have always wanted to do today like talking to that really cute man/woman who lives down the road (as long as you are both single).
