Today we celebrate:

National Frozen Yogurt Day - I can’t always tell the difference between frozen yogurt and ice cream because it is all so delicious, so I’m very excited about this day.

Pay-a-Compliment Day - Another day created by Adrienne Koopersmith quite a few years ago. Maybe somewhere around 1995? You’ll have to ask Ms. Koopersmith to be sure about the date. But the idea here is to go through your day looking for opportunities to compliment others. Then act on it. You lift moods and bring joy to the lives of everyone around you and it will make you feel pretty good too.

Ronald Reagan Day - Ronald Reagan was born on this day in 1911. He was Governor of California from 1967 to 1975 and President of the United States from 1981 to 1989. Californian Governors have proclaimed this day every year since 2002.

International Day of Zero Tolerance to Female Genital Mutilation – The United Nations sponsors this day to make the world aware of the fact that female genital mutilation happens in many countries of this world and we need to do whatever we can to make it stop. The first step is to get into those areas where it happens and educate parents who believe it's the right thing to do to their daughters. I can’t comprehend the mentality that allows them to hurt their children like this, but clearly tradition is a very strong force to overcome.  Even when that tradition is just plain wrong.

Working Naked Day – Begun in 2010 and celebrated on the first Friday in February, I must stress that this day is for those of us fortunate enough to WORK FROM HOME today! In fact, that is apparently the point of the day. If you work from home, you can work naked or in your pj’s if you want to. Well, as long as you don’t do a lot of video chatting or skyping.  

Lame Duck Day – Elected officials who are nearing the end of their terms are considered lame ducks. This is a day to reflect upon the contributions of these ducks, I mean people, to society at large before they go off to obscurity. If you don't like the official leaving office, give them a break today. After all, they will be out of office very shortly.
