A very easy day to celebrate today:

Campfire Girls Day – Founded in 1910 by Dr. Luther Gulick, and his wife, Charlotte Gulick, Campfire Girls of America was incorporated as a national agency on this day in 1912. Its' mission was to do for girls what the boy scouts did for boys. As you can tell from the name it involved lots of camping and outdoor activities. In 1975 it began allowing boys to become members and changed its name to Campfire Boys and Girls. In 2001 it became Campfire USA and in 2012 it became simply, Campfire.  I prefer to camp in the summer when it’s warm, but to each his own.

Saint Patrick's Day – St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. For centuries, the Irish have been celebrating his life on this date, which is believed to be the date of his death in the year 460, with a great feast. The festivities have spread over the years to the extent that on this day, everyone is a little bit Irish. There is usually a St. Patrick's Day parade at some point on a weekend leading up to this day.

To celebrate today, wear green and have an Irish feast on your camping trip.
