Today we celebrate:

Mean Girls Appreciation Day - This is a day to celebrate the movie, Mean Girls.  Do you have any good quotes from the movie you can share? How about this one…”That’s why her hair is so big.  It’s full of secrets.”

International Frugal Fun Day - Created by Shel Horowitz, the author of a book about doing things cheaply, this is a day to have fun doing things that are free or very inexpensive.  There are plenty of things you can do that don’t cost anything.  Ride bikes with your family, go for a hike, invite some neighbors over for a potluck, play games with the kids, and that’s just to start you off.

National Virus Appreciation Day – I'm not too sure about this one. Well, I’m sure that it exists, I’m just not sure why.  Perhaps someone can enlighten me about what there is to appreciate regarding viruses of any kind. There are living organisms that we call viruses that make us sick and there are computer viruses that make our computers sick. Either way, I don't appreciate them one little bit.

Butterfly and Hummingbird Day – Now this is a day I can appreciate. Who doesn't love butterflies and hummingbirds. I could watch them flit around all day.  Beautiful and graceful and only around at certain times of the year, see if you can spot one today.

National Caramel Custard Day – I never eat custard, although right now I can't think why. I absolutely love caramel so I'll have to give this a try today.  Here’s a recipe you can try that looks pretty easy

World Temperance Day – I haven’t found out anything about this day other than the fact that it exists and can be found on the calendars of several countries. I can only speculate that this is a day to avoid drinking alcoholic beverages. Many of us drink too much anyway, so drink some water instead.  

Look at the Leaves Day - Are the leaves changing near you?  You won’t know unless you look, so take some time to look at the leaves today.  Hopefully they are very colorful where you are and making the trees look beautiful instead of already all sitting on the ground waiting to be raked up.

National Family TV Show Day - This is a day to have some family time.  There are those who believe that it would be a good idea to have this particular day at least once a week.  Sit down with your family and watch a TV show together.  It might spark an important opening to talk about your values on a multitude of issues.

National Techies Day - A hundred years ago a techie would have had a hard time finding a job.  But these days, we can’t go a day without needing a techie to help us with at least one of the multitude of gadgets that we use every day.  Make sure you thank your favorite techie today.

Inter-American Water Day – Celebrated on the First Saturday of October, this is a day to raise awareness of how important water is for life. It was created in 1992 by the Pan American Health Organization, the Inter-American Association of Sanitary and Environmental Engineering and the Caribbean Water and Wastewater Association.

World Card Making Day – This day is also celebrated on the First Saturday in October. It began in 2006 as a national day but went worldwide shortly after. It is a day for anyone involved in card making, whether you make them at home or you are part of the card making industry, to celebrate the creativity involved.

To celebrate today, put away the alcohol and go for a frugal bike ride with your family while you look at the colorful leaves and try to find some butterflies and hummingbirds.  Then call a techie to come and clean viruses off your computer while you sit with your family, to watch a tv show about the waterways of the world.  Then make some caramel custard for dessert tonight to eat while you make some cards that have quotes from Mean Girls to give to people.
