Today we celebrate fairies, angels, doctors, bosses and, of course, food.  We always celebrate food!

National Pecan Torte Day – Although torte means cake in some languages, torte is actually more dense than a traditional cake. In a pecan torte you use ground up pecans instead of flour. Try making one today to see how different it is from the pecan pie you made two days ago.

Hug Your Boss Day – This is a day to increase motivation and morale by loosening up a little and giving your boss a hug. Unless you think that it would not be welcome, in which case, don't do anything to jeopardize your job.

National Eat A Peach Day – Today is a day to eat a peach. If you have access to a peach tree, they are best right off the tree. Otherwise, a farmer's market is your next best option. If you can get a few and make them into a dessert, that is better still.  Peach cobbler anyone?

National Take Your Cat To The Vet Day – This is the day to take your cat to the vet for a visit. It doesn't matter if you have an appointment, they'll be happy to see you just to say hello to your wonderful cat and your cat will appreciate not having to have any shots or unpleasantness like that. Of course, if your cat needs an appointment, then it's the perfect day to make one.

National Tooth Fairy Day – Also celebrated on February 28th, this is a day to honor that magical person who comes to your house in the middle of the night when everyone is asleep, sneaks into your children's bedrooms, and steals their teeth from under their pillows. If you think about it too much, it becomes creepy and you will want to upgrade your home security system. So don't think about it, just thank him/her for keeping your children happy with his/her little gifts.

Be An Angel Day – On this day we need to do our best to be an angel for somebody or even many somebodies if you are ambitious. Random acts of kindness; helpfulness in all things; going out of your way to make someone feel special; these are only some of the ways you can be an angel today.

To celebrate today, give some peaches to your boss along with your hug.  Then, after work of course, take your cat to go visit the vet before you mow your neighbors lawn like the angel you are.  Next, write a nice thank you note to your local tooth fairy while you enjoy a lovely pecan torte.
