Today we celebrate:

Data Innovation Day – This day is to celebrate information and make you aware of the benefits that will come to you if you increase your use of information and your efficiency in getting the information that you need. The day will be full of panel discussions, webinars and something called “hackathons”.

National Pie Day – According to some sources, this is to be celebrated on December 1st. I cannot determine which date is the correct one but the majority of the sites seem to consider it to be today. Whether it is today or not, you really can't go wrong by having a nice piece of pie today anyway.

National Rhubarb Pie Day – Well, if you're going to have to have pie today, you might as well have rhubarb pie and celebrate two days in one. Rhubarb is delicious in a pie especially if you mix it into a custard pie or with strawberries. I never really think of buying it in January, it's more of a June food here in the northeast.

National Handwriting Day – Celebrated on John Hancock's 276th birthday, this is a day to focus on your writing skills and how readable they are. Do you write sloppily so that no one can read it or do you write so tiny that people need a magnifying glass? Maybe you write with big loopy letters? What does your handwriting say about you? Today is the day to find out.

Measure Your Feet Day – Do any of us really know how big our feet are? I know that mine are larger than they were before I had children. I've heard that our feet continue to grow after the rest of us has stopped so I'd always assumed that old people have really big feet. But now that I'm approaching old age (according to my children), I've noticed that my feet are not as huge as I figured they would be so maybe feet don't keep growing after all.

Snowplow Mailbox Hockey Day – This is a day for snowplow drivers to have some fun. Plowing roads is a lot of hard work with long hours during snowstorms and we depend upon them to keep our roads clear so that we can use them whenever we want or need to. So for all the snowplow drivers out there, today is a day for you to see how many mailboxes you can whack today.

Women's Healthy Weight Day – Celebrated on the Thursday of the third full week of January, this is a day to celebrate the fact that there is a different healthy weight for everyone. So today we honor women of all shapes and sizes who strive to be a healthy weight no matter what that number on the scale happens to be.

To celebrate today, measure your feet and write down your size in your best handwriting so you don't forget when you go shopping for shoes. Then use the internet data available to find out what your healthy weight should be and toast the information with a piece of rhubarb pie. Finally, if it's snowing, watch the snowplow people play hockey with your mailbox.
