Today we celebrate:

Gallbladder Good Health Day - This is a day to focus on eating healthy foods that your gallbladder likes and avoiding fatty foods that make your gallbladder work hard.  So no fried foods today, instead eat fruit and vegetables and lean meats and enjoy your healthy gallbladder.

National Bluebird of Happiness Day - This is a day for going out of your way to spread happiness.  Bluebirds have been linked to happiness for thousands of years.  This was reaffirmed in the lyrics of the song Bluebird of Happiness from 1934.  You don’t actually need to have a bluebird in order to accomplish the act of spreading happiness, but if you happen to see one today, whistle so it knows you are just as happy as it is.

Rosh Hashanah – This is the Jewish New Year. It begins at today at sundown. Happy New Year everyone!

National Cherries Jubilee Day – A dessert that consists of cherries over vanilla ice cream. Sometimes brandy or some other kind of liqueur is warmed and poured over the top. I've never tried it because I’m not a big fan of cherries, although I do like cherry flavoring so maybe I can find a compromise.

National Women's Health & Fitness Day – This day is considered to be “the nation's largest annual health promotion event for women of all ages.” It is held on the last Wednesday in September with a goal of highlighting the importance of health awareness. Physical activity on a regular basis is an important component of being healthy so look into joining a local fitness center or working on your own to increase your level of physical activity. Many fitness based organizations all over the country will be having special events today.

World School Milk Day – Celebrated for the last 14 years, this is a Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations created day for the purpose of establishing school milk programs all over the world. Milk is a good way to get calcium which is important for growing strong bones for children.  This makes milk an important part of a child's diet and far too many children in the world do not have access to it.

Punctuation Day – I better proofread my work carefully today because this day is all about proper punctuation. Make sure you use your commas, colons, periods, apostrophes, etc., properly.

To celebrate today, have an apple and some milk to feed your healthy gallbladder and head outside to look for bluebirds.  Give everyone you see an hand made card wishing them a happy Rosh Hashanah, being extra careful of your punctuation, and then go to the gym for some physical fitness work.  Finish out the day with Cherries Jubilee for dessert.
