Today we celebrate:

National Frozen Custard Day – A little bit different from ice cream, but just as delicious.

Eid-Al Fitr – This day is an important Muslim holiday that marks the end of the fasting of Ramadan. This is a day for the Muslims around the world to be united. This day does vary in different localities based on local religious authorities but most celebrate it today. Muslims celebrate with special ceremonies and prayers.

The Date to Create – This is a day to be creative. It seems to be celebrated on the eighth because “eight” rhymes with “create”. I couldn't find much more information about this day so I guess it means you can be creative in any manner you like whether it is in an artistic field or an inventive one or any other field you care to embark on.

Universal & International Infinity Day – Created by Jean-Pierre Ady Fenyo in 1987, a Philosopher and Science-Fiction author, also known as The Original New York City Free Advice Man. This day is to be celebrated with peaceful and non-violent demonstrations for freedom of expression, freedom of speech and ethics in society and philosophical inquiry. It is called Infinity Day because most philosophers agree that the idea of infinity is the ultimate idea that the human mind can conceive of. 

Happiness Happens Day –
This day was created by the Secret Society of Happy People. On this day in 1998, the Society signed up it's first member who was not related to the founder so they chose this day for their first Happiness Happens Day in 1999. It doesn't really say how this day should be celebrated on the web site, but I imagine the goal is to find happiness no matter what happens today. 

Odie Day –
Garfield fans will know right away that Odie is the dog that lives with Garfield. He's pretty goofy and is constantly slobbering all over everyone and everything. He first appeared in the comic on this day in 1978 and has been a fixture ever since.

National Zucchini Day – This is a day to cook with zucchini. If you have some growing in your garden, they are best when they are on the small side. But if they get away from you and get too big, you can always make delicious zucchini bread.

To celebrate today, start by reading the comics to see if Odie is featured today. Then read a book on Philosophy to see if it inspires you to be creative in some endeavor of your choice. Make sure whatever you choose makes you happy. If you are Muslim, make time for Eid-Al Fitr prayers today. Finish up the day with zucchini and frozen custard.
