Today we celebrate:

National Raspberry Cake Day – I have never had a raspberry cake before but now I can't think why. I'll have to change that today.

Cotton Candy Day – Is celebrated on this day and on December 7th. Since cotton candy is really a summertime treat, I assume (but was not able to confirm) that the reason is that in the northern hemisphere it is summer today and in the southern hemisphere, December 7th is summer weather.

Jump for Jelly Beans Day – This is a day to enjoy the many varieties of flavors of jelly beans. I'm not sure why jumping is included unless it is because we jump for joy when we get to eat them.

Uncommon Instruments Awareness Day – This is a day to celebrate musical instruments. But not your every day, ordinary flutes, violins, pianos and guitars. This is a day to celebrate the ones you don't see every day like the dulcimer or clackamore, handpan, clapsticks, marimba, and nose flute.

Mutt's Day – Not to be confused with National Mutt Day on December 2nd. This is, however, a day to celebrate a much maligned canine. Many people disparage the mutt and look for a purebred dog. However, it has been proven that mutts can be a blend of traits from different kinds of dogs that may suit your family better than a purebred. Plus, they usually have fewer health problems than purebreds do so don't discount a mutt before you get to know him/her better.

To celebrate today, find some uncommon instruments and play them for your mutt, or your neighbor's mutt if you don't have one. Then prepare for a sugar rush because you will be eating raspberry cake, cotton candy and jelly beans for dessert tonight.
