Today we celebrate:

Felt Hat Day – There was a time when anyone who was anyone had a felt hat. They are not so easy to find these days so if you find one, wear it today.

Make A Hat Day – This is a day to make your own hat of your own special design. The only catch is...after you make it, you have to wear it.

National Creme de Menthe Day – A sweet, minty alcoholic beverage. Day – On this day in 1997, Google registered it's domain name. And the rest is history.

Greenpeace Day – Founded on this day in 1971, Greenpeace has become the largest, independent environmental organization in the world. It was begun in Vancouver but has spread to 2.9 million members in over 41 countries.

International Day of Democracy – Created by the United Nations General Assembly in 2007, this is a day to uphold the principles of democracy and to spread awareness of the benefits of a government and culture based on the will of the people.

International Dot Day –
this is a day to connect the dots. The dots are people and we need to connect people all over the world to involve each of us in creative and celebratory activities designed to make the world a better place. 

National Neighborhood Day – Celebrated on the third Sunday in September, this is a day to make your neighborhood a caring community where everyone looks out for everyone else.

To celebrate today, find a felt hat to wear today, then make your own hat to wear on top of the felt hat. Next, call anyone you know who doesn't live in a democratic country (watch those time zone differences) and tell them all of the benefits they would have if they did live in such a country. While you have them on the phone, figure out a creative endeavor you could participate in together. Then make sure you meet all of your neighbors and invite them to your house for a recycling party.
