Today we celebrate:

Victory over Japan Day – On this day in 1945, Japan's surrender became official with the signing of the surrender document. There was a formal ceremony in Tokyo Bay, Japan aboard the USS Missouri.

National Beheading Day – Okay, who came up with this one. If you can find out, please let me know. All I could find out is that this is a day to celebrate all the beheadings that have occurred throughout history whether they happened to regular people or royalty. Kind of gruesome, if you ask me.

Bison-Ten-Yell Day – This is a day to celebrate the bicentennial of the invention of the Bison-Ten-Yell. Yes, I know. That information didn't make me any less confused either. Well, maybe it will help if I tell you that it has something to do with a set of 10 battle yells that were used as signals during battle. And this was incorporated into football in order to help the players remember the plays.

Labor Day – Celebrated on the first Monday in September, this is a day to celebrate workers of all kinds. Most businesses have this day off except for vital services such as hospitals, police and shopping malls. The rest of us celebrate the contributions of workers on an economic and social level.

To celebrate today, take the day off from your labors and practice your bison-ten-yelling instead. Then read about all the famous people in history that have been beheaded and finally, stage a re-enactment of the signing of the surrender document aboard a battleship. Any battleship that you have access to will be fine, you can always paint over the name to make it the USS Missouri.
