Today we celebrate:

National Cherry Tart Day – If you can find a cherry tree, all the better to get fresh cherries.  If not, the canned variety will do just fine.  Hopefully it’s not too hot to run the oven where you are.

International Panic Day – Back in March we had National Panic Day, but this is a day to take that feeling to a whole new level. World wide panic is on tap for today. Play up your fears big today, and encourage all of your friends all over the world to do the same. Panic about everything. Be afraid, be very afraid!

National Splurge Day – Normally I preach a frugal lifestyle as much as possible. But today is a day to let loose and buy that special thing you have been wanting soooooo bad but you haven't been able to come up with a good enough reason other than that to spend the money. Now you have it. Go get it.

National Go Fishing Day – Make sure your fishing license is up to date and find out what the fishing rules are in your area because today is a day to break out the rod and reel and head for the water. Fishing is a great way to relax, spend time with the kids and think deep thoughts.

International Sushi Day – Sushi is more than food, it is art. Sushi isn't all about raw fish, it's about the vinegar seasoned rice used in the dish. There are many different variations of this dish in this country with a wide variety of ingredients. I'm sure that even if you are not a fan of sushi, you can find some variation that you will enjoy.

Dump The Pump Day – Celebrated annually for the last 9 years on the third Thursday in June, the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) and public transportation systems all across the country celebrate this day. The idea is to save money on gas by riding public transportation instead of driving on this day. Another good way would be to invent a car that runs on garbage which we certainly produce plenty of.

Recess At Work Day – Also celebrated on the third Thursday in June, this is a day when recess is serious business. It's an opportunity to increase creativity in the workplace, increase morale at your office, improve the health of the employees, create the spirit of everyone being on the same team, and share the fun side of you that the people you work with rarely have a chance to see. These people are so serious about it that they have a Recess At Work Training System that you can learn about here:

To celebrate today, go fishing for something you can turn into sushi.  Then, splurge on some top notch cherries to make a cherry tart to have with the sushi.  Finally, call up all of your personal fears and indulge in a good panic attack before you take the bus to work to have some serious recess time.
