Today we celebrate:

Homemade Bread Day – This is a day to make some homemade bread. If you are baking challenged, don't worry. It doesn't say anything about making homemade bread from scratch so feel free to make something from a mix. You also don't need to use yeast if you don't want to, quick breads count, don't use yeast and are very easy to make.

National Unfriend Day –
Declared by Jimmy Kimmel in 2012, this is a day to clean out your Facebook friends list by weeding out or “unfriending” anyone you would really rather get rid of or maybe those that you just don't have anything in common with.

World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims
– Observed on the third Sunday in November every year, this is a day to remember all those who have died or been injured as a result of a traffic accident. This day was created by the United Nations in 2005 to support the victims and their families and communities all around the world.

World Prematurity Awareness Day – This a day to spread awareness of prematurity and the challenges that preemies and their families can face as they grow. Sometimes premature babies have significant health difficulties so more work is needed to spread the use of intervention strategies that decrease the risk of premature births.

World Peace Day – Created by Don Morris in the 1990's, this is a day that reminds us to be kind to everyone around us and to pray for peace. One thing you can do is drive with your headlights on so everyone will know that you are demonstrating for peace. Yes, I know that many cars have their headlights on all the time, let's not burst Mr. Morris' bubble, after all, he created this day back when that wasn't an automotive reality.

To celebrate today, while your bread is baking, get onto Facebook and start unfriending people. Then while your bread is cooling, say a prayer for those who have been killed or injured in a traffic accident. Next, call up all of your friends who are pregnant and make sure they are getting the proper prenatal care. Finally, go out and give slices of your bread to everyone you meet, wishing them a peaceful day.
