Today we celebrate:

Have a Party with your Bear Day - Everyone loves a party, even bears.  Send out invitations to include all of your friend’s bears, plan the menu and dress up your bear.  Then have some fun!

National Button Day - This is a day for old buttons.  I love old buttons.  There are an absolutely endless number of different styles and sizes and colors.  I could look through tins of old buttons for hours.  I’ve started my own collection but it takes time to build up a big enough one to be interesting.

National Fast Food Day - Some people live on fast food, others avoid it like it’s the plague.  We tend to live a happy medium,  I do try to choose items on fast food menus that are as healthy as possible such as a salad but frankly sometimes either dinner is fast or there is no dinner.  The first fast food restaurant that I am aware of was a hot dog stand on Coney Island that opened in 1867.

World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims – Observed on the third Sunday in November every year, this is a day to remember all those who have died or been injured as a result of a traffic accident. This day was created by the United Nations in 2005 to support the victims and their families and communities all around the world.

International Day for Tolerance – In 1996, the United Nations General Assembly invited its' Member States to observe this day every year with activities geared toward educating their populations about how important tolerance of others is to world peace.

To celebrate today, say a prayer for road traffic victims and their families while you teach your children about being tolerant of others over a fast food dinner.  Then throw a party for a bear with buttons for eyes.
