Today we celebrate:

International Peach Day – We had lots of peach days in August, but this is a day that is for just plain old peaches. Nothing fancy. You don't need to cook them into anything, just bite into a juicy one and enjoy it.

National Pecan Cookie Day – If you like pecans, you'll like these cookies.

Big Whopper Liar Day – Celebrated on the third Saturday in September, this is a day to lie and lie big. Little fibs will just not do today, you need to come up with some big whoppers.

Boys' and Girls' Club Day for Kids – Boys and Girls Clubs all over America are celebrating this Day for Kids in a variety of ways. Check with your local club today.

International Day of Peace – Created by the United Nations General Assembly in 1981, this is a day that is celebrated all over the world with festivals, concerts and a moment of silence at noon in every time zone creating “a global Peace Wave”.

International Eat An Apple Day – Celebrated on the third Saturday in September, this is a day to celebrate the beginning of fall by eating an apple, the most popular seasonal fruit.

International Coastal Cleanup Day –
This is a day that is also celebrated on the third Saturday in September. We honor the day by reducing the amount of trash we throw out and by cleaning up the trash lining our coasts. We need to keep our oceans clean.

World's Alzheimer's Day
– This is a day to raise awareness of Alzheimer's disease and dementia all around the world. Alzheimer's disease is a form of dementia and someone develops the disease every 68 seconds. It is extremely devastating in so many ways for the family of the patient to watch the slow decline of their loved one.

Wife Appreciation Day – Some say this is celebrated on the third Saturday of September, others say it's is on the third Sunday. Since I didn't see it in time to post it on the third Sunday (which was the 15th), I'm going with the Saturday people. Show your wife how much you appreciate her today.

To celebrate today, have an apple to keep up your energy when you get to the nearest coast to help clean it up. While you are there, have a moment of peaceful silence, when you are done with that, offer up a prayer for the families of Alzheimer's patients. Then head to the nearest Boys' and Girls' Club to share some peaches and pecan cookies with the kids while you entertain them with the biggest whoppers you can think of.
