Today we celebrate:

National French Toast Day – If you were wondering what on earth you were going to have for breakfast today, fear not for I have your solution right here. Who doesn't love French Toast?

National Day of Mourning – This is a day of protest for the Native American people. They remember how their ancestors were murdered, lied to, poisoned, demonized and displaced by the people who came to this country after them beginning with the Pilgrims.

Thanksgiving Day – This is a day for Americans to give thanks. We stuff ourselves to the bursting point with a feast and we thank God for a bountiful harvest and our ability to spend time with the ones we love.

Turkey-free Thanksgiving
– This is a day for the vegans, vegetarians, and the turkey dislikers among us. You absolutely do NOT have to have Turkey today. Have a pork roast or steak or delicious vegetarian meal instead.

Make Your Own Head Day – This is a day to get creative and artistic. Use whatever materials you have on hand and make your own head today. Make it however you would like it to be, it doesn't have to look anything like you.

Red Planet Day – On this day in 1964, Mariner 4 was launched. Mariner 4 was an unmanned spacecraft that passed within 9,844 kilometers of Mars and took many up close pictures of the red planet that it sent back to scientists here on Earth.

To celebrate today, have some french toast for breakfast and make sure your kids know the truth about what happened with the Native Americans in this country. Then get your kids busy making their own heads while you are preparing a wonderful Thanksgiving meal. Make sure you have options for the non-turkey lovers. This evening, see if you can see Mars through your telescope.
