Today we celebrate:

Dinosaurs Day - Today we celebrate and learn more about the dinosaurs that walked the earth before we were created. There were dinosaurs of all sizes, shapes, and probably colors. Some of them still live today in forms we are familiar with such as birds, alligators and crocodiles. With all that has been discovered over the last couple hundred years, I’m sure you can find out something new that you didn’t know before such as the fact that the smallest known dinosaur was about the size of a Tyrannosaurus Rex’s tooth.

National Coloring Book Day - Coloring books are not just for kids. Sitting and coloring a picture in a coloring book is really pretty cathartic. But if you just can’t get yourself to do it on your own, find a child and color some pictures together. A lot of adults are jumping on this and it is much easier to find coloring books geared for adults these days. There are a number of libraries that have coloring activities for adults as well, call your local library to see if they have one you can join. If not, maybe they would arrange one.

National Ice Cream Sandwich Day – I love ice cream sandwiches!!! There is an amazing variety of flavors for the ice cream portion and for the cookie portion so I'm sure you can find one you like too.

National Night Out - Celebrated on the first Tuesday in August, this is a day to keep the crime out of your neighborhood. It was begun in 1984 by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), a non-profit that supports several different crime prevention programs, as an effort to promote citizen involvement in keeping the criminals out of our neighborhoods.
