Today we celebrate:

Invite an Alien to Live with You Day - Robin Williams was born on this day in 1952. He was, of course, the famous alien in “Mork and Mindy” whom Mindy invited to live with her. That worked out so well that “The Life of the Party”, creators of the day, decided that everyone should do the same thing. So find an alien, and invite him or her (let’s not be sexist) to live with you. Let me know how it works for you.

Take A Monkey to Lunch Day - This day was also created by The Life of the Party and celebrates the anniversary of the conviction of John Scopes for the crime of teaching evolution in 1925. These days it’s hard to find a school that does not teach evolution or at least the existence of the theory.

Get To Know Your Customers Day – Celebrated on the third Thursday of each fiscal quarter, this is the day for the third quarter for all business owners to get to know their customers.

National Creme Brulee Day – It appears that the British invented this dish at the University of Cambridge. Probably not all of the British, probably just a few of them, but I don't know which ones. So to make sure I don't miss whichever ones are responsible, I'll just thank everyone in this world that lays claim to even a drop of British blood. This is delicious.

National Junk Food Day – Normally we try to avoid junk food because we are trying to set a good example for our children. However, today feel free to have all the junk food you want for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Tomorrow, it's back to eating healthy.

Legal Drinking Age Day – This day is a celebration of the establishment of the legal drinking age of 21 years old that was signed into law on July 17, 1984. If you are 21 years old or older, you may celebrate with an alcoholic beverage of your choice. However, I implore you to keep in mind that while you may have the right to drink, you do not have the right to risk your life or anyone else's life by driving while you are impaired by alcohol.

National Tug-Of-War Tournament Day - Make your teams, get your rope, find some mud or water to play over and get to pulling. There are some official rules you can look up and should definitely follow. But the most important rule is to have fun.
