Do you have your bikini ready? That's good because today is:

Bikini Day – On this day in 1946, the first very revealing two-piece bathing suit, created by French designer Louis Reard, was worn by Parisian showgirl Micheline Bernardini. It created quite a stir and Reard had some trouble finding a model who would wear something this scandalous for his fashion show. It took off in Europe fairly quickly, but didn't find a market in America until the 1960's because American's were a little more conservative. Something you wouldn't necessarily believe if you ever visited an average public high school today.

National Apple Turnover Day – A delectable, apple stuffed pastry. Flaky, and fruity deliciousness.

International Chicken Wing Day – You cannot enjoy chicken wings unless you are having a party. I'm pretty sure it's an unwritten rule. Since it's an international day, why not have an international party?

Hop A Park Day – July is National Parks and Recreation Month so there will likely be special events going on in the National Parks all over the country.  This is a day for you to visit each of the parks in your area to see what special events they have planned.

International Day Of Cooperatives – Celebrated on the first Saturday of July, this is a United Nations day that has the goal of increasing awareness of cooperatives. The United Nations wants to strengthen the partnerships among cooperatives, as well as between cooperatives and their supporting governments.

International Cherry Pit Spitting Day – On this day, compete with your family and friends from all around the world to see who can spit their cherry pits the farthest. I'll set the bar right here. You have to at least beat a distance of 2 inches because that's how far I can spit my pit. I know, it's pretty sad.

Workaholics Day – Do you eat, breathe and sleep work? Well, then this is the day for you. This is a day that is always celebrated on the 5th of July to honor those dedicated workers who show up to work on time on the day after July 4th.

To celebrate today, work in the morning, then change into a bikini to go park hopping with some cooperative partners.  Then have a dinner of chicken wings and apple turnovers before finishing up the day with a neighborhood cherry pit spitting contest.
