Today we celebrate:

Victory over Japan Day – On this day in 1945, Japan's surrender became official with the signing of the surrender document. There was a formal ceremony in Tokyo Bay, Japan aboard the USS Missouri.

National Beheading Day – Okay, who came up with this one? If you can find out, please let me know. All I could find out is that this is a day to celebrate all the beheadings that have occurred throughout history whether they happened to regular people or royalty. Kind of gruesome, if you ask me.

Another Look Unlimited Day  – Celebrated on the day after Labor Day, this is a day to examine your possessions and donate what you don't need to charity or reuse them in some other way.

Bison-Ten-Yell Day – This is a day to celebrate the bicentennial of the invention of the Bison-Ten-Yell. Yes, I know. That information didn't make me any less confused either. Well, maybe it will help if I tell you that it has something to do with a set of 10 battle yells that were used as signals during battle. And this was incorporated into football in order to help the players remember the plays.

To celebrate everything in one day, watch a documentary on World War II and make up your own battle yell as you stage a reenactment of your favorite battle with your family.  Then look over all the stuff in your house and decide what can go and what can be used differently.  Finally, read a biography on someone famous who had been beheaded way back when that used to happen.
