Today we celebrate:

World Egg Day – Created by the International Egg Commission at the IEC Vienna 1996 conference (Who knew there was an International Egg Commission? I certainly didn't.). This is a day to generate media interest about eggs and encourage people to eat more of them. It is celebrated on the second Friday in October every year.

World Standards Day - Standards in many aspects of our society are very important to a well ordered country. Standards are what makes our lives run smoothly. Standards in manufacturing are what makes the same words mean the same thing through the entire industry. For example, women who wear a size 12 dress in one store can be reasonably certain that a size 12 dress in a different store would also be likely to fit. That is because of sizing standards. In the automotive industry, while there are many small differences, standards are the reason that each car has the same basic components like brakes, windshield wipers, and airbags (the ones installed in the cars, not the ones driving the cars). This is a day to honor the thousands of people over the years who have developed standards such as these for the advancement and welfare of societies all over the world.

National FRUMP (Frugal, Responsible, Unpretentious, Mature Persons) Day - If any of the words in the acronym fit you, this is your day. If not, well….we are all a work in progress to some degree.

Bald and Free Day - This is a day to take off your hat or scarf and flaunt whatever you have, or don’t have, on top of your head. Don’t let thinning or missing hair make you feel uncomfortable. You are beautiful just the way you are.

National Dessert Day – This is a good day that I think everyone will enjoy. We celebrate it by having some kind of dessert today. Which dessert you have is totally up to you. So many could take me all day to decide.

National Chocolate Covered Insects Day – OK, I'll just say this right out front. I will not be celebrating this one because I am disgusted just thinking about it. If you are a brave soul, go ahead and cover some insects with chocolate and chow down....without me.

national lowercase day - this is a day to ignore the rules about capitalizing names, places, the first letter of a sentence…and all the other capitalization rules that are occasionally hard to remember. just skip it all today and see who notices. in this day of texting odd combinations of numbers and letters and lack of punctuation, maybe no one will notice at all.
