Today we celebrate:

Teddy Day - This is the fourth day of Valentine’s week and is a day to give your loved ones an adorable teddy bear.  Who doesn’t love a cuddly and cute teddy bear?  Well, who besides my husband who really wouldn’t appreciate the gift as much as I would...hint, hint.

Ash Wednesday - The first day of the season of Lent, which is a time when Christians prepare for the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday.  It falls 46 days before Easter and is a day for fasting and avoiding meat.

Plimsoll Day – Samuel Plimsoll was born on this day in 1824 in Bristol, England. He was a British politician, but is mostly known for devising the Plimsoll Line. It's a line drawn on a ship that indicates the maximum load a ship can bear. Once it's loaded so that the line is at the water's edge, the ship is full.

National Cream Cheese Brownie Day – Oh boy, who can resist rich, fudgy chocolate mixed with cream cheese.

Umbrella Day – Umbrellas (or parasols as they used to be called in upper class circles) can be used to shield you from rain or snow, or shade you from the heat of the sun and the dangers of UV rays. You can get them in just about any size from tiny ones that fit in your purse to humongous ones like beach or table umbrellas.
