Today we celebrate:

Easter – A very important Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

National Pineapple Upside-down Cake Day – This is a fun cake to make but somehow I never manage to make it without it breaking somehow when I flip it over to get it out of the pan.

Look Alike Day – Did you know that you look just like Shakira? Really, I swear! I think everyone looks like someone else. I found someone in Texas years ago that looked just like my sister. No one else thought so, but she really did!

Volunteer Recognition Day – This is a day to honor the thousands and thousands of volunteers who spend so much of their time helping others in a myriad of ways every day.  They go out of their way with no financial incentive for their work whether they are building houses, walking dogs, delivering meals, or any other of the endless ways there are to volunteer.

Auctioneers Day – A day to reflect on one of the oldest professions in history and to celebrate its’ future. Today we have online and in person auctions to participate in, maybe in a hundred or so years we will be able to participate holographically.

UN Chinese Language Day - This is one of the major languages used by the members of the United Nations.  It is celebrated today because this is the day the Chinese honor Cang Jie.  Legend has it that Cang Jie created the Chinese characters around 5,000 years ago and when he did, the Gods and ghosts cried and it came down as millet instead of rain.

Lima Bean Respect Day - People have been eating lima beans for the last 8,000 or so years.  I’m not a fan but my husband loves them and they are really healthy for you so maybe I should give them another chance.  Scientists are even studying them in cancer research because they contain something that seems to inhibit the growth of cancer cells.

To celebrate today, go to an Easter sunrise service where you should keep your eye out for your look alike.  Then thank all volunteers you meet over the course of the day while you go to a Chinese auction.  Then it’s lima beans and pineapple upside-down cake for dinner.
