Today we celebrate:

Cliche Day - Today is a day for spouting off as many cliche’s as you can.  I’m sure you can think of at least a few such as some of these oldies but goodies:  Time will tell; I lost track of time; Weak as a kitten; Scared to death; Cat got your tongue; and my personal favorite - All that glitters is not gold.

Election Day – This is the day set aside for the general elections of public officials. It is the day after the first Monday in November. Federal elections only occur on even-numbered years but state and local elections happen for something every year.

National Sandwich Day – Born on this day 295 years ago, the Earl of Sandwich, John Montagu, is believed to be the first inventor of the sandwich. There are so many things that you can do with a sandwich and I, for one, am grateful to him for inventing this convenient way of eating.

Give Someone a Dollar Today Day - I couldn’t find much information about this day so I don’t know when it started or whose idea it was.  I can tell you that it is a day to share some of your fortune with someone less fortunate by giving them a dollar.  A dollar isn’t much, you might be saying right now.  To that I say that it is better than nothing and could be just the thing they need to turn their lives around because it’s not how much you give, it’s the good feelings behind it that will make the difference.

SOS Anniversary - On this day in 1906 the SOS as a distress signal became universal worldwide at the second International Radiotelegraphic Convention.  We all know what SOS means no matter where you are in the world so its effectiveness continues to this day.

National Housewife Day – This is a day to honor the over-worked and under-appreciated housewife. Not everyone is able to be a housewife, either because they don't want to be or because they have no choice but to work outside the home to support their families. Nothing wrong with either way, just make sure what whatever choices you make in your life, do not devalue the women who make different choices. Housewives work very hard, so take a well-deserved break today, put up your feet and do whatever you need to do to relax.

To celebrate today, get some cliches ready and make sandwiches for your family so the housewife in the family doesn’t have to.  If you are the housewife, have someone else make the sandwiches while you teach the children what SOS means.  Then go vote in your local election and give a dollar to a fellow voter.
