Today we celebrate:

National Eggs Benedict Day – To make this delectable dish you need warm, crispy bacon, a toasted and buttered English muffin, poached eggs and a warm and creamy Hollandaise sauce.  Put them all together and you have a delicious breakfast.  I couldn't determine which Benedict these eggs were named after, every Benedict in history seems to have some sort of story attached to them whereby they claim credit.

National Baked Ham With Pineapple Day – This must be a week for ham so I hope you’re not sick of it yet.  Although this ham is different from yesterday’s because today you can add pineapple.

National Healthcare Decisions Day – This is a day to educate and inspire you to make your health care decisions BEFORE you are in dire need because of an emergency. Plan ahead because no one leaves their house in the morning thinking that this is the day I'm going to have an accident and end up in the hospital before nightfall. Plan ahead people!

World Voice Day – As a species, humans depend on their voices to communicate with each other.  It is a tool for conveying emotion, as well as information.  We depend on our voices when we educate each other.  We also depend on our voices for entertainment in the form of singing, as well as for getting the attention of others when needed.  This is a day to get excited about voice science, and the vocal arts.

National Bookmobile Day – Begun in 2010, this is a day to celebrate the contributions of the nation's bookmobiles and the people who make them possible.  In case you don’t have any in your area, bookmobiles are libraries on wheels that bring the books to people who can’t come to the libraries.

National Wear Your Pajamas To Work Day – Celebrated on the day after taxes are due so you can have a day to decompress after all the stress of doing your taxes. So don't worry about picking out just the right outfit today and just stay in your pajamas. As long as you are decently covered. Just saying, I know how some of you dress to go to bed.

National Stress Awareness Day - This is a day to spread awareness of the fact that stress affects us in ways we don’t think about on a regular basis.  It can have a ripple effect throughout our bodies and show up in many ways such as heart disease, loss of hair, lines on the face and innumerable others.

To celebrate today, have some eggs benedict for breakfast and then head off to work in your pajamas where you will use your voice all day to communicate with your co-workers and customers.  At lunch, relieve your stress by spending some time at the bookmobile looking for a wonderful book about health care decisions which you can read tonight while you eat baked ham with pineapple.
