Today we celebrate:

African American Coaches Day – Celebrated on the first Tuesday in February, this is a day to bring attention to the African American Community and the benefits of working with a coach, whether it's for personal or business interests. And just for a little clarification, this does not necessarily have anything to do with sports. There are many kinds of coaches and strong African-Americans can have a very positive influence over the lives of young people who just need someone to guide (or coach) them.

Rose Day - This is the beginning of love week, the week that culminates in Valentine’s Day. On this day you are encouraged to buy roses and give them to everyone you love.

Ballet Day – This is a day to celebrate ballet dancing. I know several girls who are beautiful ballet dancers but we need to remember that this art form is not just for girls. There have been some pretty famous male ballet dancers that you may have heard of. If you think about it, it is a very physically demanding activity. Definitely not for wimps or “sissies”. You have to be pretty flexible, and have very strong muscles in order to do it well.

e” Day – This is a math day. Basically, “e” is used to represent the number 2.7182818... which was discovered and named after Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler around 1727. It is an important mathematical constant that is the base of natural logarithms. If you are interested in learning more see this website.

Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day – There are HIV/AIDS awareness days sprinkled around throughout the year. It's a devastating disease that affects the entire world. Make sure you know how to keep yourself safe. This day is a day to focus on making the Black community aware of the importance of HIV testing and treatments which have come along way in the last few years.

Wave All Your Fingers At Your Neighbor's Day – Put aside your differences with your neighbors today and instead of saluting them with one finger, be a little friendlier and use all of them. After all, a friendly relationship has to start somewhere. Let it start with you.

National Fettuccine Alfredo Day – A meal that my husband will enjoy even if my children turn their noses up at it. If you were wondering what to have for dinner, wonder no more.

Send A Card To A Friend Day – You don't need a special reason to let a friend know that you're thinking about them. Put a card in the mail today because your friends just might need a reminder that they are being thought of and there is no time like the present.

Safer Internet Day - This is a day to promote making online technology and mobile phones safer for children and young people all around the world. The theme for this year is “Be the Change: Unite for a better internet!”
