Today we celebrate:

National Kissing Day - This began as a United Kingdom holiday, but we have joined in on the fun. It has been celebrated in the United Kingdom for about the last eleven years, according to the website. It is a day for kissing so pucker up and get the lip balm ready because you’ll need it.

Celebration of the Senses Day - This is a day to celebrate all of your senses: sight, touch, taste, smell and sound. How you choose to celebrate is left up to you so do whatever is most pleasing to these senses. It doesn’t need to be all at the same time, although if you can, it would certainly save time.

Museum Comes to Life Day - This day has been celebrated since 2006 and is a day to go to a museum and imagine what it would be like if everything in it came to life. Take your kids with you and see what scenarios their amazing imaginations come up with. I don't know for sure but I imagine that this day has some connection with the movie, Night at the Museum.

National Pralines Day – A sweet pecan treat that is very popular in New Orleans. It originally came from France and used almonds but when those Frenchmen and women arrived in New Orleans way back when, almonds were hard to come by, so they switched to pecans and now no one even thinks of using almonds in this delectable dessert.

International Fairy Day – This is a day that celebrates those tiny, winged, little people who are born on the laugh of a baby. I couldn't find out where this day came from or why we should celebrate it, but if you have children, particularly the little girl variety, you probably already celebrate this day every day.

Swim a Lap Day – This is a day to get a little exercise. Put on your bathing suit, (go ahead, I won’t look) and hop in the pool to swim a lap. Although since you went to all that trouble to get your suit on and find a pool, I don't know why you would stop at one lap. Go ahead and swim as many laps as you can.

Take Your Dog To Work Day – This is a day to celebrate dogs and encourage people to adopt them. There are so many wonderful dogs out there that would make perfect pets for you. We adopted our dog from a rescue organization and I cannot now imagine how we got along without him. He even melted my not-a-dog-person husband's heart. This day began to be celebrated in 1999 and was created by Pet Sitters International.  It is always on the Friday after Father’s Day.

Drive Your Corvette To Work Day - On June 30, 1953, the first Corvette was produced in Flint, Michigan. So this day is celebrated on the Friday before June 30th. If you have a Corvette, drive it to work today. If you don’t have one, you can either pretend and dress up your Civic as a Corvette, or you can rent one for the day.
