Today we celebrate:

Alascattalo Day - An alascattalo is a cross between a moose and a walrus. This is an Alaskan holiday. Bear with them people, it’s very dark for a long time up there. They need something to hang onto to keep from going a little batty. So what if they want to invent new creatures and pass them off as real. Buy a shirt with a walrus or a moose or both on it and make them feel good.

National Stuffing Day - Today, just a few days before Thanksgiving, is a good day to try a new stuffing recipe so you know before the big day whether or not it’s going to taste good. It’s up to you whether or not you actually stuff it into a turkey since you’re going to be eating a whole bunch of turkey very shortly so we will understand if you don’t want to overdo it now.

Pumpkin Pie Day - This is a day to make and eat pumpkin pie. It’s better if you make it from scratch with a real pumpkin, because that gives you bragging rights. But we’ll accept it if you used canned pumpkin because that tastes good too.

National Gingerbread Day - This is the time of year for gingerbread. Gingerbread cookies, gingerbread houses, gingerbread bicycles, gingerbread meatloaf, whatever you think of that can be made with gingerbread, go to it today.

World Hello DayThis is a day that was begun in 1973 because of the problems between Israel and Egypt. Yes, I know, I didn't remember what was up with that either. I had to look it up. I found out that it was called the Yom Kippur War, Ramadan War or the October War. Several Arab countries led by Egypt and Syria launched a surprise attack on Israel on Yom Kippur. It also happened to be during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, hence one of the names. The war lasted 20 days before a ceasefire was arranged. One hundred and eighty countries have celebrated this day ever since. The goal is to greet ten people today to spread a message to world leaders and encourage them to talk about their problems instead of fighting.

World Television Day – Declared by the United Nations General Assembly in 1996, this is a day that commemorates the anniversary of the World Television Forum that year.

False Confession Day – This is a day to make a false confession to some transgression that you didn't commit. Why, you ask? I haven't the slightest idea. But I do have some advice: If you’re going to do it, do it up big, just don’t do it in front of a judge or jury!
