Today we celebrate:

National Granola Bar Day – Granola bars were developed in the 1970's when an inventor, possibly Stanley Mason, figured out that by compressing granola with something sticky, like honey, and baking it so it stays together, one can create a portable breakfast.

National Hugging Day – There are lots of different kinds of hugs: the Bear Hug, The Side to Side Hug, the Cheek Hug, the Back to Front Hug and the Heart Centered Hug. Pick the hug that suits the situation and the person and have at it today. Just don't get arrested for hugging the wrong person.

Squirrel Appreciation Day – Today is a day to appreciate those creatures that many of us consider to be pests. Instead of shooing them off your bird feeders, throw a few nuts out for them. Hey! I said out FOR them, not AT them! Come on, if you look at them the right way, they are kind of cute. Yes, they are! If you don't see it, try squinting. The black ones are the cutest, you don't see those too often.

National New England Clam Chowder Day – What a great lunch that would be. Isn't it great when I solve your dilemma about what to eat for lunch today!

Rid The World Of Fad Diets And Gimmicks Day – The Tuesday of the third full week of January is the day to realize the uselessness of fad diets that don't work long term, and sometimes not even short term, along with the gimmicks you can spend tons of money on that don't reduce the weight of anything but your wallet.

To celebrate today, share your granola bar with the neighborhood squirrels, then hug them when they get close. For lunch, ditch the fad diet and have some New England Clam Chowder.
