Today we celebrate:

National Cashew Day – One of my favorite kinds of nuts, get ready for a nutty day today.

International Survivors of Suicide Day – Celebrated on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, this is a day for the friends and family members of those who have died by suicide to join together and share a healing spirit. There will be events happening all over the world for the purpose of uniting these survivors. This day was begun by Senator Harry Reid in 1999 and started out as a National Day but when other countries began celebrating it as well it was changed to an International Day.

Dr. Who Day – Today is the 50th Anniversary of the first time Doctor Who was aired on television on this day in 1963. And, if I am not mistaken, I believe a new Doctor Who airs this afternoon sometime. Check your televisions.

Family Volunteer Day
– Celebrated on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, this is a day to get your whole family involved in volunteering. Pick your favorite activity whether it's helping your local food pantry, helping at a local homeless shelter, picking up the garbage at your local park or any other worthy cause and get the family working on it today. My daughter and I are volunteering at a pancake breakfast this morning.

Fibonacci Day –
This day celebrates Leonardo of Pisa, AKA Fibonacci, who created the Fibonacci Sequence which is a pattern where every number in the sequence is the sum of the previous two numbers. Fibonacci was a very important contributor to the field of mathematics.

International Aura Awareness Day – Celebrated on the fourth Saturday in November, this is a day to become more aware of our human energy, also known as our auras. See if you can figure out what your aura says about you.

National Adoption Day – This is a day to raise awareness of the thousands upon thousands of children who are waiting for forever families to come and claim them. If you are thinking about having another child, please consider adoption.

Eat a Cranberry Day – I believe that cranberries are considered to be a Super Food because they are loaded with antioxidants and fiber. Thanksgiving is coming up so test out a recipe using cranberries today so you can decide if it is Thanksgiving worthy.

To celebrate today, have some cashews while you watch Doctor Who. Then head out with the family for a day of volunteering. While you are working tell your kids about how the Fibonacci Sequence works and see if you can see anyone's aura. Then send a message of support to a survivor of someone who committed suicide and think about whether adoption would be a good option for your family. For dessert tonight make some cranberry muffins.
