Today we celebrate:

Global Hug Your Kid Day – This is a day that urges every parent all around the world to hug their children today and every day. This day is celebrated on the third Monday in July since 2008 when it was created by Michelle Nichols. Her son, Mark, died suddenly and tragically from brain cancer in 1998 at the very young age of 8 ½ years old. Do not miss one single opportunity to hug your child because with the fragile nature of life, you just never know when it will be the last hug you get or give.

National Creme Brulee Day – It appears that the British invented this dish at the University of Cambridge. Probably not all of the British, probably just a few of them, but I don't know which ones. So to make sure I don't miss whichever ones are responsible, I'll just thank everyone in this world that lays claim to even a drop of British blood. This is delicious.

National Get Out Of The Doghouse Day – I'm not sure why the doghouse is the designated spot for people in trouble with their family members, but for whatever reason it is. The goal today is for the whole country to get out of the doghouse. Say something nice, do something nice, beg for forgiveness, whatever you need to do, do it and resume your happy life.  This day is celebrated on the third Monday in July.

National Junk Food Day – Normally we try to avoid junk food because we are trying to set a good example for our children. However, today feel free to have all the junk food you want for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Tomorrow, it's back to eating healthy.

Legal Drinking Age Day – This day is a celebration of the establishment of the legal drinking age of 21 years old that was signed into law on July 17, 1984. If you are 21 years old or older, you may celebrate with an alcoholic beverage of your choice. However, I implore you to keep in mind that you do not have the right to risk your life or anyone else's life by driving while you are impaired by alcohol.

To celebrate everything in one day, get out of your doghouse by sharing creme brulee and an alcoholic beverage with whoever is mad at you.  Then hug your kids and feed them junk food.
