Today we celebrate:

Roswell UFO Days – The first day of a three day festival. On this day, the City of Roswell tells the Universe that if they are looking for a place to crash, Roswell is ready to receive them. UFO experts, enthusiasts and skeptics are invited to Roswell to celebrate “one of the most debated incidents in history.”

Comic Sans Day - Comic Sans is a typeface style that was created around 1994 by Vincent Connare.  It was based on the lettering style of some comic books he had.  It took off and became pretty popular among a lot of people, but not everyone. Many people felt it was being used inappropriately and when it was used for serious messages, those messages appeared to be not so serious and even inspired contempt.  So it became very controversial.  But in the Netherlands, in 2009, radio DJs Coen Swijnenberg and Sander Lantinga decided it needed a celebration day so they choose the first Friday in July.  Some Dutch companies change their websites to Comic Sans on this day.

National Chocolate Wafer Day – A crispy, waffley kind of cookie layered with a sweet, creamy, chocolatey filling. I'm making myself hungry again.

Compliment Your Mirror Day – On this day your job is to look into your mirror and compliment it for having such an amazing, talented, and beautiful/handsome owner. In addition, you must look at every mirror you encounter today and make sure it smiles at you.

National Eat Beans Day - This is a day to explore the many varieties of beans that are available to add protein to our meals.  They are especially important to vegetarians because they are a great source of protein but we can probably all benefit from their health benefits.

Stay Out Of The Sun Day - This is a day to protect yourself from the damaging rays of the sun by simply staying out of it.  Enjoy whatever shade you find because it goes a long way to keeping us cool when air conditioning is not available.

Disobedience Day – There are times when disobedience is necessary to right something that is very wrong. A good example would be the Civil Disobedience protests led by Martin Luther King, Jr. Without them, we might still be living in a segregated society where people of color are openly and actively persecuted with no legal recourse. Peaceful disobedience is an excellent way to fight against unjust laws/rules and create change in your society.

To celebrate today, use comic sans for your typeface today and stay out of the sun while you look in your mirror and compliment it for showing you  such a beautiful picture.  Then have some beans and chocolate  wafers on the plane to Roswell for the festival while you contemplate what rules you can disobey in a civil way.
