Today we celebrate:

National Bagelfest – All bagels, all day long today. Have as many as you can stand. Mix it up a little since bagels come in all kinds of flavors. You might even want to try your hand at making your own. I've done it and they've come out pretty good. This is something like what my bagels looked like. A little misshapen, but delicious nonetheless.

One Voice Day – On this day, the people of the world will unite and recite the Universal Peace Covenant in one voice. This is a day to unite spiritually as well as vocally in order to proclaim your dedication to achieving world peace. You can find the Universal Peace Covenant here:

All Or Nothing Day – This is a day to risk it all.  This could be your last day on this planet, after all. You never know what the future will bring so live life like it's your last chance to do whatever it is you have been really wanting to do. Do not, however, be tempted to break any laws today because you could have quite a few years left in this life and you really don't want to spend them in jail.

Paddle For Perthes Disease Awareness Day – Legg-Calve-Perthes disease is a disease that causes problems with the blood supply to the hips. Without enough blood, the bones break easily and do not heal well. So, to celebrate today, we don't use our legs much, hence the paddling. Paddle your canoe, or kayak or small boat or raft to show support for those who suffer from this disease. This day is always celebrated on the last Saturday of July.

Aunt And Uncle Day – This is a day to honor your parent's siblings. It is not an official day yet, but there is a movement in the works to try to make it one. What can you do today to make your aunts and uncles feel loved?

Lumberjack Day – Created in 2005 by Marianne Ways and Colleen AF Venable, this is a day to behave like a lumberjack if you know what that type of behavior consists of. Apparently lumberjacks eat a lot of pancakes, talk differently and carry an ax wherever they go.

National Dance Day – Begun by Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton in 2010, this is a day to celebrate dancing and other forms of physical fitness in order to have a healthy lifestyle.

National Day Of The Cowboy – Founded by the American Cowboy magazine in 2004, this is a day to promote our cowboy history and protect our Western heritage. This day is celebrated on the fourth Saturday of July.

To celebrate everything in one day, recite the Universal Peace Covenant, which I am sure you have memorized, before you have a bagel for breakfast.  Then risk it all (the "it" being your dignity) by pretending to be a lumberjack all day long, even while you are dancing a traditional cowboy dance for the enjoyment of your Aunts and Uncles.  Finish up the day by taking a kayak trip to support those with Perthes Disease.
