Today we celebrate:

The Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi – The patron saint of animals, the environment and a co-patron saint of Italy. This is the day after the anniversary of his death in 1226. After growing up wealthy, and converting to a life of poverty and preaching, he began his own religious order which was eventually endorsed by Pope Innocent III in 1210.

National Taco Day – A taco is the Mexican version of a sandwich. A tortilla wrapped around a filling of beef pork or fish. There are countless variations on the taco or you can come up with your own.

Blessing of The Animals Day – This day coincides with the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi because of his love for all animals. So take your animals to a local Catholic church for their blessing today.

Improve Your Office Day –
On this day, office workers all around the world are required to clean up, organize and decorate in order to make their work environment clean and safe and it wouldn't hurt for it to be healthy either so make sure you use disinfectant on phones, keyboards, mice, desks and anything else people touch regularly.

Lee's National Denim Day –
Celebrated on the first Friday in October, this is a day for everyone to work together to fight against breast cancer by wearing jeans to work in exchange for a $5 contribution toward breast cancer research.

National Diversity Day –
Established in 2005 by the people at , this is a day to celebrate whoever you happen to be no matter what your race, gender, religion, disability, sexual orientation, age or nationality. Everyone is special and precious and should be accepted for who they are.

Ten-Four Day – This is the fourth day of the tenth month and is a day of recognition for those radio operators who use the code words “ten-four” instead of the word “yes” on the radio. Do not ask me why radio operators need these code words, I do not have the answer for that.

National Vodka Day – The word comes from the Russian word “voda” which means “water”. This was traditionally a European drink and didn't become popular in the United States until after World War II. It is a very potent drink with a high alcohol volume so be careful when you drink it.

World Smile Day – This day is celebrated on the first Friday of October every year. It was created in 1999 by Harvey Ball, the artist who created the smiley face in 1963. He felt that his smiley face symbol was over-commercialized and was losing its intended significance. So he decided that the world needed a reminder that we should smile more often. So today, you should smile at absolutely everyone.

National Frappe Day – This is a beverage that is chilled or frozen. We usually see it in a coffee beverage but it doesn't have to be. Frappe whatever you would like to drink today.

To celebrate today, bring your pets to Church to be blessed and plan a feast of tacos and frappes that you can share with them later on. Make sure you smile at everyone today while you wear your jeans to work. Since you'll be busy cleaning and improving your office, the jeans will work out well. Make sure you say ten-four to everyone today instead of yes and share a vodka with a diverse group of your co-workers.
