Today we celebrate poetry, picnics and pina coladas:

National Pina Colada Day – Coconut, pineapple and rum...a delicious combination. Indulge yourself with one of these today.

National Clerihew Day – Edmund Clerihew Bentley, born on this day in 1875, was a journalist and the author of a detective novel, Trent's Last Case. He is best known for a verse he created in a form that is now known as the Clerihew. Two rhyming couplets of differing lengths:
Edmund's middle name was Clerihew
A name possessed by very few,
But verses by Mr. Bentley
Succeeded eminently.

Teddy Bears' Picnic Day – This is a day to have a picnic with your teddy bear. Feel free to borrow one from your kids but better yet, make this a family event and bring all the kids and all of their teddy bears. I bet even the older kids will enjoy a fun family day like this.

To celebrate today, take your teddy bear for a picnic and write a Clerihew while you drink a refreshing pina colada.
