Today we celebrate:

National Croissant Day – Okay, now I'm drooling. I haven't even thought about croissants since the last Croissant Day a whole year ago and now I want one. Too bad I haven't found a gluten free version yet.

School Day of Non-Violence and Peace – This day was founded in 1964 and is celebrated on this day, which is the anniversary of the death of Mahatma Gandhi. In the Southern Hemisphere, it is commonly celebrated on or around March 30th. The message of this day is, “Universal Love, Non-violence and Peace. Universal Love is better than egoism, Non-violence is better than violence, and Peace is better than war.” Celebrations are encouraged in schools, which are free to decide how they want to participate.

National Inane Answering Message Day – I think this is a made up day as I couldn't find any source for it. What information I could find suggests that it is a day to get rid of the inane messages left on your answering machine, but I think it would be more fun to call all your friends and leave inane messages on their answering machines so they will be sure to have something to delete.

National Escape Day – This is a day to take a little, well-deserved mini vacation from the stress of your hectic life. It doesn't matter if you go far away or just lock yourself in your room for a little while. Find a way to pamper yourself and relax.

To celebrate today, have a croissant, call up some friends and leave them some crazy messages and then spend the rest of the day away from everything by locking yourself in your room. Soak up the non-violent peacefulness of your escape.
