Today we celebrate:

National Sing Out Day - This is a day for everyone to participate in.  Sing out!  Sing out whatever you want to sing.  Do you have kids?  Sing some kid songs with them.  Do you like the Blues? Gospel? Rock? Country? Something else? Go ahead and belt out as many songs as you can.

American Diabetes Association Alert Day – Celebrated on the 4th Tuesday in March, this is a day for everyone to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if you are at risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes. This is something that I take seriously because of the high rate of diabetes in my family. I encourage you to take it seriously as well.

Holy Tuesday - This is always celebrated on the Tuesday of Holy Week which is the week before we commemorate the death of Jesus Christ. There will be church services that talk about the Parable of the Ten Virgins from Matthew 25:1-13.

World Water Day – This is a United Nations sponsored day, that began in 1993, to bring attention to the danger our freshwater supply is in because of  pollution. This year the theme for the day is “Better Water, Better Jobs”. The UN says that, “Nearly all jobs are related to water and those that ensure its safe delivery.But they are concerned that not all of these jobs are protected by basic rights that should be the rights of every worker.

As Young As You Feel Day – This day goes well with National Goof Off Day. You are as young as you feel, so do things that make you feel younger. Play with some kids, run outside, go for a hike, play some video games, take a nap. Whatever it is that you like to do that makes you feel younger than your age.

International Day Of The Seal – Created by Congress in 1982, there are some who believe it is celebrated on different days, but the most reliable looking information I could find says it is today. This is a day to bring attention to the problem of seal hunting. If people keep killing these beautiful creatures for sport, there won't be any left which would be very sad for people but will cause even bigger problems for the animals that hunt seals for food.

National Goof Off Day – This is a day to relax and do absolutely nothing, otherwise known as goofing off.  I’m sure you don’t need any advice on how to accomplish that.  We all have a need to goof off now and then so feel free to indulge yourself today.
