Today we celebrate:

National Fresh Squeezed Juice Day - I’m not sure who created this day or why, but I have to assume that whoever it was really likes fresh squeezed juice.  So if you have a juicer, you’re all set.  If not, I hope your hands are up for the challenge.  What can you squeeze juice out of besides oranges and grapefruits?  

National Strawberry Ice Cream Day – My son's favorite ice cream! I guess I'll just have to get him some.

National Hat Day – This is a day to celebrate hats of all kinds. Get your favorite hat out of the closet and show it off today, although you might want to brush off the cobwebs first, it's not Spooky Hat Day after all.

Humanitarian Day – Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday and the first of three Emancipation Days of Respect which honor the memory of Martin Luther King by promoting respect, unity and remembrance.

Lee-Jackson Day – Celebrated on the Friday before Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, this is a day to celebrate the birthdays of Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson. This day is usually celebrated with military ceremonies, a parade and a ball in Virginia.

Wikipedia Day - On this day in 2001, Wikipedia went public.  It went from zero to 20,000 English articles in just one year.  The next year they added almost 80,000 more.  Many people thought it wouldn’t last because of the fact that anyone can go in and update information.  But they are even more popular today and show no sign of slowing down.
