Today we celebrate:

One Voice Day – On this day, the people of the world will unite at 6pm Universal Time (1pm EST) and recite the Universal Peace Covenant in one voice. This is a day to unite spiritually as well as vocally in order to proclaim your dedication to achieving world peace. You can find the Universal Peace Covenant here.

All Or Nothing Day – This is a day to risk it all.  This could be your last day on this planet, after all. You never know what the future will bring so live life like it's your last chance to do whatever it is you have been really wanting to do. Do not, however, be tempted to break any laws today because you could have quite a few years left in this life and you really don't want to spend them in jail.

National Bagelfest – All bagels, all day long today. Have as many as you can stand. Mix it up a little since bagels come in all kinds of flavors. You might even want to try your hand at making your own. I've done it and they've come out pretty good.

Aunt And Uncle Day – This is a day to honor your parent's siblings. It is not an official day yet, but there has been a movement in the works to try to make it one. What can you do today to make your aunts and uncles feel loved?

Auntie's Day – This is the seventh year celebrating this day that is just for Aunts. It is celebrated on the fourth Sunday in July and is a day to acknowledge the fact that unlike parents, aunts step in because they choose to.  They can play with their nieces and nephews when parents are too busy so they can give parents a break and occupy the kids for a while.  They spend money on the kids because they want to, not because they have to, and they have unlimited amounts of love and patience because they are not tested to the brink every day like parents are.  I couldn't find a reliable source for the origin of this day but most of us have at least one Aunt that we love dearly, or maybe you are one yourself. If you do have one, give her a call today and tell her how much you love her.

Parents' Day – This is a day to celebrate your parents or celebrate being a parent. We wouldn't be here without our parents so show them how much you appreciate their love and support over the years. And, just to be clear, it doesn't matter if your parents are biological or if you got them in some other manner. Biology doesn't make a parent, love does. This day was created in 1994 by President Bill Clinton and the U. S. Congress and is celebrated every 4th Sunday of July.  The National Parents’ Council says that this is a day for parents to honor their children and rededicate themselves to strengthen their families by demonstrating unconditional love.

To celebrate today, have a bagel for breakfast, then risk it all by doing something you have always wanted to do.  Then, take your parents, Aunts and Uncles out for dinner to show them how much you love and appreciate them.  At 1pm EST, recite the Universal Peace Covenant, which I am sure you have memorized.
