Today we celebrate:

National Lollipop Day – Everybody loves a lollipop. It doesn't seem to matter how old you are, they make you feel young again.

Moon Day – This is the sixth annual celebration of space exploration. Find an observatory or museum near you and see if they have any special events, exhibits, and activities today.  This day honors the first time man walked on the moon way back in 1969.

Ugly Truck Day – Although there is some disagreement about whether this day is celebrated today or June 20th, it seemed that the most reliable looking information I found put it on this day. If you have an ugly, old truck sitting in your yard rusting slowly into nothingness, this is the day for you. If it will run, take it out for a drive and show it off today. If it won't run, take a picture of it and show it to everyone you meet. Maybe you can join an ugly truck competition today. Depending on where you live you probably won't have to look too hard in order to find one.

Global Hug Your Kid Day – This is a day that urges every parent all around the world to hug their children today and every day. This day is celebrated on the third Monday in July since 2008 when it was created by Michelle Nichols. Her son, Mark, died suddenly and tragically from brain cancer in 1998 at the very young age of 8 ½ years old. Do not miss one single opportunity to hug your child because with the fragile nature of life, you just never know when it will be the last hug you get or give.

National Get Out Of The Doghouse Day – I'm not sure why the doghouse is the designated spot for people in trouble with their family members, but for whatever reason, it is. The goal today is for the whole country to get out of the doghouse. Say something nice, do something nice, beg for forgiveness, whatever you need to do, do it and resume your happy life.  This day is celebrated on the third Monday in July.

To celebrate today, hug your kids and make up with your entire family so you can get out of the doghouse, then hop into your ugly truck with them, hand out lollipops and head to the observatory.
