Today we celebrate:

Brownielocks Day - This is a day to celebrate being a brunette. Celebrate by showing off your hair, the bigger your ‘do’ the better. If you don’t have brown hair, compliment all those who do. This day was chosen because it was when the brownielocks people bought their domain name.

Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day – Do you have a unique, odd and/or gross talent? I think if you think about it hard enough you'll come up with something. Well, this is the day to figure it out and share it with others.

D.B. Cooper Day – This is the name given to an unidentified criminal who hijacked a Boeing 727 flying between Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington on this day in 1971. He received $200,000 in ransom money before parachuting out of the plane. He had boarded the plane with the alias Dan Cooper, which the media messed up causing him to be called D. B. Cooper. Neither he nor all the money has ever been found, and the FBI believes that he didn't survive the jump. A small amount of money was found and some believe it is part of the ransome. All passengers and crew members of the airplane survived the incident.

National Sardines Day - I never really understood the appeal of sardines. Tiny fish in a tin can that you eat, bones and all. I would love to say “yum”, but I can’t.

National Use Even If Seal Is Broken Day - This is a day that I cannot, in good conscience, recommend.  I guess it just depends on what it is that you are going to use. Food products that have a seal, have it there to protect you from tampering. Please do not consume anything that has a broken seal unless you broke it yourself. If you find something that is relatively unimportant but has a seal anyway, feel free to use it if the seal is broken. Heaven knows that sometimes we are just too careful about a lot of things in today’s society.

National Day of Mourning – This is a day of protest for the Native American people. They remember how their ancestors were murdered, lied to, poisoned, demonized and displaced by the people who came to this country after them beginning with the Pilgrims. Not the finest chapter of our Nation’s history, but one that needs to be acknowledged.

Thanksgiving Day – This is a day for Americans to give thanks. We stuff ourselves to the bursting point with a feast and we thank God for a bountiful harvest and our ability to spend time with the ones we love.

Turkey-free Thanksgiving – And for the vegans, vegetarians, and the turkey dislikers among us, you absolutely do NOT have to have turkey today. Have a pork roast or steak or delicious vegetarian or vegan meal instead.
