Today we celebrate:

National English Toffee Day – did you know that toffee is mostly sugar and water, so it must be easy to make. Here's a recipe if you want to give it a try today.

Bubble Bath Day – I haven't had a bubble bath in years but today is a great day to relax in a warm tub full of bubbles with a glass of wine. Maybe play a little music and burn a little incense if you like. Just make sure you don't fall asleep.

National Male Watcher's Day – This is a day to celebrate a handsome man. Any handsome man you would like to look at. Instead of women being watched today, it's time to turn the tables and watch the men.

Show And Tell At Work Day – Why should Kindergarteners have all the fun? Find something interesting that you have done and show and tell your boss and/or coworkers today.

Argyle Day – This is a day to celebrate that pattern of colored diamond shaped blocks on clothing. Fashion is not my forte so I'm not sure if I even have anything in the house that could be considered argyle, but I'll look because today is the day to find something argyle hiding in your closet and wear it for all to see.

Earth's Rotation Day – Obviously the earth rotates every day, but for some reason, whoever created this day decided we needed to be reminded of that fact.

Midwife's Day or Women's Day – On this day, women in Greece stop doing housework and instead spend time in cafe's socializing while their husbands do the housework and take care of the kids. The web site I found said that in some villages, men that are found outside are drenched with cold water. I think this is a celebration that needs to come to America so I am starting a movement by telling you all about it.

War On Poverty Day – On this day in 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson declared war on poverty during his State of the Union address. His policies resulted in increased support for Roosevelt's policies from decades before as well as starting new welfare programs.

To celebrate today, wear something argyle to work and pass out English toffee to your boss to munch on while you do your show and tell presentation about the rotation of the earth and its' effects on poverty. Then go out to lunch and ogle the good looking men who pass by. Finally, have a bubble bath while your husband does the household chores.
