Today we celebrate:

National Lasagna Day – Delicious layers of pasta and cheese and whatever else you like to put in your lasagna. I prefer a meat filled lasagna but vegetables are good too.

Rain Day – The history of Rain Day is too involved for me to get into here so I will post a site where you can read all about it. I will simply say that it involves rain, betting, hats, celebrities and a Rain Day Prophet.

National Chicken Wing Day – Proclaimed in 1977 by Mayor Stan Makowski of Buffalo, NY, this day has been celebrated with enthusiasm every year since. Apparently the people in Buffalo REALLY love their chicken wings and eat thousands of them every week. That is why they are sometimes called Buffalo wings.

Cheese Sacrifice Purchase Day – It looks like your goal today is to catch some mice so you need to sacrifice some cheese for bait. I don't have an mouse to catch, thank goodness. If you do, better get some good cheese so they are very tempted.

Anniversary of the Army Chaplain Corps – Celebrating it's 238th year of supporting the faith of the armed forces with an incredibly diverse group. There are a little less than 3,000 chaplains from about 130 different faith groups including a Hindu chaplain and two Buddhist chaplains who signed on a couple of years ago. I had no idea they supported that many different faiths. They also have Muslims, Orthodox, Jewish, as well as the standard Catholic and Christian denominations.

To celebrate today, bet someone a hat that it will rain today, then get some chicken wings and take them to the nearest Army base to share with the local Chaplain. Lasagna is for dinner tonight and don't forget to bait your mouse traps with cheese before you go to bed.
