If you like pies and ducks and interesting diseases, this is the day for you:

Donald Duck Day - Some consider this to be Donald Duck’s birthday because it was on this day, in 1934, that he first appeared in cartoons.  Namely the Silly Symphony cartoon called “The Wise Little Hen”.  However, it was on March 13th that Donald’s nephews were trying to figure out what to get him for his birthday so I think that is his birthday.  But we can celebrate his anniversary of cartoon fame today.

National Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie Day – It's strawberry and rhubarb season so it's the perfect time to make this pie for your family. My son would devour the whole thing himself if I let him and then finish it up by eating the leftover raw rhubarb. Yes, I know, he is very odd.  Well, fortunately for my whole family, I happen to have a wonderful mother-in-law who made a strawberry-rhubarb pie for us yesterday.  She didn’t even know this day was coming up.  If you don’t have a mother-in-law like mine, I’m sorry, but you’ll just have to make your own pie.

World APS Day – On this day in 2005, the APSFA (Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome Foundation of America) was created. Therefore, this is the day that was chosen in 2007 to have World APS Day. You are encouraged to wear burgundy ribbons to help spread awareness of this autoimmune disease and to demonstrate encouragement to those who live with this disease in some way either as a patient, friend, family member or caretaker. To find out more about this disease see this website:

To celebrate today, give some strawberry-rhubarb pie and some Donald Duck comics to a family that suffers from APS.
