Today we celebrate:

World Beard Day – Always on the first Saturday in September, this is a day to celebrate facial hair. Do you have a beard? If you don't have one, and you are male, don't shave today. Maybe by the end of the day you'll have the start of one.

Franchise Appreciation Day – Celebrated on the Saturday before Labor Day, this is a day to support local franchises. Franchises make up quite a number of small businesses in your area and some of them might have some celebratory activities today.

International Bacon Day - Celebrated on the Saturday before Labor Day in the USA, this is a day to eat bacon all day long.  You can include bacon in all kinds of recipes from bacon pancakes for breakfast (or bacon and eggs for the traditionalists among us), to bacon on your salad for lunch, to bacon wrapped scallops for dinner.  There are innumerable recipes that you can find to incorporate this delicious but oh, so bad for you deliciousness. This picture shows a good option that I might have to try.

National Cheese Pizza Day – Who doesn't love pizza? I like to have sausage on mine, but most kids seem to prefer cheese pizza which is okay in a pinch, in my opinion.  I am definitely not one of those “everything but the kitchen sink on my pizza” people and I don’t even want to be in the same room as an anchovy.

Be Late For Something Day – We all have schedules to follow and we seem to live by the clock. Today is a day to be late for something. If you can, just throw out your schedule completely. If that won't work for you, then try just being late for one thing.

National Shrink Day - This is a day to be thankful for the psychiatrists and psychologists who keep our mental state on an even keel.  It is celebrated today because on this day in 1929, Bob Newhart was born in Chicago, Illinois.  The young people are confused by this now, but people closer to my age and older will remember that Bob Newhart is an actor who is known for portraying a shrink on the Bob Newhart Show way back in the day.

To celebrate today, don’t shave and be late for a dinner of cheese pizza with a side of bacon purchased from a local franchise.  Then call up your shrink and discuss the underlying issues that prompted you to do such a thing.
