Today we celebrate:

UN Spanish Language Day - Established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, this is a day to honor Spanish, one of the six official languages of the organization.

Clergy Appreciation Day – Celebrated on the second Sunday in October, this is a day to appreciate your Pastor. Whatever religion you are a part of, thank your clergy person for their work on your behalf.

Freethought Day – This day is observed by freethinkers as the anniversary of the “effective” end of the Salem Witch Trials. This was basically when rational thought finally began to overcome the hysteria of the times and the people in power began to demand more concrete evidence before condemning an accused person.

Old Farmer’s Day – This day honors the hard work of past and present farmers in America. Farmers are the backbone of this country. Without them, our cities could not exist because everyone would need to spread out and own enough land to farm enough to feed their own families.

National Gumbo Day – I'm not sure where this dish was first created, but it's a pretty sure thing that the folks down in Louisiana have perfected it. This dish has a variety of ingredients including okra, some kind of meat and shellfish.

To celebrate today, speak Spanish when you go to church to appreciate your Clergy.  Then take some gumbo to a local farmer and have a free thought discussion on the hardships of farming.
