Today we celebrate:

Eat A Hoagie Day - Back on May 5th, we had National Hoagie Day. But today is even better because today you can actually eat one of these delectable submarine sandwiches filled with your favorite meats, cheeses, sauces, vegetables and spices.

National Coloring Day - This was a day created by Jace Shoemaker-Galloway for the purpose of relaxing with what some consider to be a child’s activity. Add some color to your life and relax along with it. There are actually some very complex coloring books available for adults if they want to give it a try but find children’s books too easy. There have been several similar coloring oriented days in the year so far so if you have been tempted, but haven’t had time, you have another chance today.

The Exaltation of the Holy Cross - Sometimes called Holy Cross Day or Feast of the Glorious Cross, this day marks the date of the dedication of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in 335. Although the actual dedication was on September 13th, it was a two day event and on the 14th, a piece of the Holy Cross that Jesus Christ was crucified on, was brought out for all to see.

Star-Spangled Music Day - This day was created in 2014 by the Star Spangled Music Foundation along with the American Choral Directors Association, among others, for the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the United States National Anthem. The creators of the day would like Americans in general and school children in particular to sing the Star-Spangled Banner, along with other patriotic songs, and learn about the history and importance of the National Anthem. They encourage you all to post videos of your singing on various social media venues and mark them with the hashtag #AnthemBDay.

National Anthem Day - On this day in 1814, the Star Spangled Banner was written by Francis Scott Key after he watched the British bombard Fort McHenry during the Battle of Fort McHenry in the War of 1812.

National Cream-Filled Doughnut Day – This is my favorite kind of doughnut and since I drive by Dunkin' Donuts every day, I guess today I'll have to stop in and get some for the family.
