Today we celebrate:

Easter – A very important Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. We also have fun with Easter Bunnies, colored eggs (No, bunnies do not lay eggs, but they do hide them.), baskets, flowers and lots and lots of candy.

National Raisin & Spice Bar Day – This appears to be a southern dessert so perhaps my southern friends could weigh in on whether this would be a good recipe.

Go For Broke Day – This was the motto of the 443rd Regimental Combat Team, a segregated Japanese-American unit serving in World War II, and one of the most decorated units in the army. The day specifically highlights one of the members of that unit, Sadao S. Munemori, who died on this day in 1945 in the process of saving two men in his unit. His actions that day are also credited with contributing a great deal to the ultimate success of his unit's mission.

National Deep Dish Pizza Day – Originated in Chicago in 1943, the purpose of this day is to spread awareness of this delicious alternative to the junk food classic.

International Pillow Fight Day – This day is celebrated all over the world with humongous pillow fights.  Check out the website for a list of locations hosting pillow fighting events: Better yet, don’t tell your kids about this day, just launch a sneak attack!

To celebrate today, head to church for the Sunrise Service near you to learn about the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Then, feed your children raisin & spice bars and deep dish pizza for lunch.  While you have their attention and adoration, tell them about the 443rd Regimental Combat Team and Sadao S. Munemori.  Finally, before bedtime launch a sneak pillow attack on your children, spouse or neighbors, whoever presents a handy target.
