Today we celebrate:

National Sardines Day - I never really understood the appeal of sardines. Tiny fish in a tin can that you eat, bones and all. I would love to say “yum”, but I can’t.

Brownielocks Day - This is a day to celebrate being a brunette.  Celebrate by showing off your hair, the bigger your ‘do’ the better.  If you don’t have brown hair, compliment all those who do.  This day was chosen because it was when the brownielocks people bought their domain name.

Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day – Do you have a unique, odd and/or gross talent? I think if you think about it hard enough you'll come up with something. Well, this is the day to figure it out and share it with others.

D.B. Cooper Day – This is the name given to an unidentified criminal who hijacked a Boeing 727 flying between Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington on this day in 1971. He received $200,000 in ransom money before parachuting out of the plane. He had boarded the plane with the alias Dan Cooper, which the media messed up causing him to be called D. B. Cooper. Neither he nor all the money has ever been found, and the FBI believes that he didn't survive the jump. A small amount of money was found and some believe it is part of the ransome. All passengers and crew members of the airplane survived the incident.

National Use Even If Seal Is Broken Day - This is a day that I cannot, in good conscience, recommend.  I guess it just depends on what it is that you are going to use.  Food products that have a seal, have it there to protect you from tampering.  Please do not consume anything that has a broken seal unless you broke it yourself.  If you find something that is relatively unimportant but has a seal anyway, feel free to use it if the seal is broken.  Heaven knows that sometimes we are just too careful about a lot of things in today’s society.

To celebrate today, find something that has a broken seal and use it anyway today while you read a book about D.B. Cooper.  Then you can entertain your family with your unique talent while they enjoy sardines and styling their brown hair.
