Today we celebrate:

Old Maid Day - I don’t like the terms “Old Maid” and “Spinster”.  They imply that life is only complete if a woman has a mate to share it with.  I don’t think that’s true.  I think it is perfectly possible and acceptable to live a happy and fulfilled life without one.  But regardless of the name issue, this is a day for unmarried women around the world to revel in their carefree, unencumbered, independent status.

National Cognac Day - This is a famous variety of brandy.  This beverage is named after Cognac, France and has traditionally been reserved for rich people because it is expensive.  
Audacity To Hope Day – This is a symbolic day. A salute, if you will, to all Americans who have (or had, if they are no longer with us) a dream. Almost all dreams are achievable if you have enough audacity to hope.

Do-Dah Day – This is another Do-Dah Day (same name as the day we celebrated on May 16th, but different intent for the day). This day is about being silly by singing silly songs such as Yankee Doodle. Have fun with it.

International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression – Created in 1982, this is a day that was created by the United Nations and is dedicated to protecting all children, regardless of their nationality. It acknowledges the pain of children all over the world who are victims of physical, mental or emotional abuse whether that abuse is created by wartime activities or not.

To celebrate today, get an old maid to go with you to a local shelter where there are abused children and sing silly songs with them and help them come up with some dreams to hope for.  Finish the day with a glass of cognac.
