Today we celebrate:

National Old Stuff Day – I can't quite figure out what you're supposed to do today. We seem to have some choices. We can revel in the old stuff we have, find all our old stuff and get rid of it, or forsake the old stuff and try something new this year. I plan to do a little bit of all of that.

National Banana Cream Pie Day – My kids are not fans of this kind of pie, but I am. Try out this recipe and let me know how you like it.

Namesake Day – This day kicks off a whole week of name related days. It might have something to do with the fact that it's Celebrate Your Name Week this week. This week was created by Jerry Hill, a man whose hobby is onomatology (the study of names). Today you can start the week off right by giving some thought to your name. Who named you? Why did that person give you the name you have? Are you named after someone? Who else is using your name? Many things to ponder today.

Dr. Seuss Day – Born on this day in 1904, Dr. Seuss was the pen name of Theodor Seuss Geisel, a wonderful author, poet and cartoonist. He began publishing cartoons when he was at Dartmouth College. That was the first time he used the alias “Seuss”.

NEA's Read Across America Day – This day is officially celebrated today since this is Dr. Seuss's birthday. However, most schools and other organizations will be celebrating on March 3rd since that is a school/work day. Like last year, this year will be focusing on the connection between oral health and literacy. Apparently, poor oral health is a major reason that children miss school and miss out on lots of reading education. 

To celebrate today, discuss your name and read Dr. Seuss books with your children, or by yourself if you don't have any children, then enjoy some banana cream pie while you contemplate what to do with all of your old stuff.
