Today we celebrate:

Campfire Girls Day – Founded in 1910 by Dr. Luther Gulick, and his wife, Charlotte Gulick, Campfire Girls of America was incorporated as a national agency on this day in 1912. Its' mission was to do for girls what the boy scouts did for boys. As you can tell from the name it involved lots of camping and outdoor activities. In 1975 it began allowing boys to become members and changed its name to Campfire Boys and Girls. In 2001 it became Campfire USA and in 2012 it became simply, Campfire.

National Wellderly Day – Created by Dr. Dale Anderson, and celebrated on the third Monday in March, this is a day for people of all ages to stay young and healthy by starting each morning with a 15 second belly laugh while looking in a mirror. It sets up your day to be positive and successful.

National Act Happy Day – Also created by Dr. Dale Anderson and celebrated along with Wellderly Day, this is a day to behave in a happy way all day long. According to Dr. Anderson, this will help your health in dramatic ways by elevating endorphin levels.

Saint Patrick's Day – St. Patrick was the patron saint of Ireland and is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. For centuries, the Irish have been celebrating his life on this date, which is believed to be the date of his death in the year 460, with a great feast. The festivities have spread over the years to the extent that on this day, everyone is a little bit Irish. There is usually a St. Patrick's Day parade at some point on a weekend leading up to this day.

To celebrate today, start out with a great, big laugh and then carry that through the whole day by being happy no matter what happens. Wear something green to honor St. Patrick while you go camping.
