Today we celebrate:

Autistic Pride Day - More and more people are being classified as Autistic these days, and the fact is that autistic people have challenges to overcome in their daily lives that people without autism don’t have to think about. But that doesn’t mean that they are not able to be fully functioning and contributing members to society like anyone else. There are all different levels of autism and sure, there are some who have much harder daily challenges than others, but they are all people and deserve the love and respect that you yourself would expect.

International Picnic Day - Being an international day, you can go wherever your little heart desires for your picnic today. You can stay local or even in your own backyard, or you can go to Besalu, Spain, if you want an out of the way but beautiful international picnic location. And that is only one of thousands or even millions of options.

National Hollerin’ Contest Day - Celebrated on the third Saturday in June, this is a great opportunity for you to yell all you want to. Spivey’s Corner in North Carolina, a dinky town with a population of less than 500, holds a Hollerin’ Contest that is famous and draws thousands of visitors every year. Be as loud as you can today and maybe stage your own contest.

Worldwide Knit In Public Day - Don’t be shy and keep your knitting to yourself. Let everyone see you do it. This is a day for knitting enthusiasts around the world. Men or women, adults or children, whoever likes to click those needles and make something amazing, get your yarn ready and your pattern, if you need it, and get to work.

World Juggling Day – Celebrated on the Saturday closest to June 17th, this is a day that is sponsored by the International Juggler's Association (IJA). The goal of today is to spread the fun that juggling provides and bring jugglers everywhere together. I know a juggler personally and he never ceases to amaze me with his skills whenever I see him perform. Events will be held all over the world.

National Cherry Tart Day – If you can find a cherry tree, all the better to get fresh cherries. If not, the canned variety will do just fine.  Hopefully it’s not too hot to run the oven where you are.

National Go Fishing Day – Make sure your fishing license is up to date and find out what the fishing rules are in your area because today is a day to break out the rod and reel and head for the water. Fishing is a great way to relax, spend time with the kids and think deep thoughts.

International Panic Day – Back in March we had National Panic Day, but this is a day to take that feeling to a whole new level. World wide panic is on tap for today. Play up your fears big today, and encourage all of your friends all over the world to do the same. Panic about everything. Be afraid, be very afraid!

National Splurge Day – Normally I preach a frugal lifestyle as much as possible. But today is a day to let loose and buy that special thing you have been wanting soooooo bad but you haven't been able to come up with a good enough reason other than that to spend the money. Now you have it. Go get it.

International Sushi Day – Sushi is more than food, it is art. Sushi isn't all about raw fish, it's about the vinegar seasoned rice used in the dish. There are many different variations of this dish in this country with a wide variety of ingredients. I'm sure that even if you are not a fan of sushi, you can find some variation that you will enjoy.
