Today we celebrate:

National Sing Out Day - This is a day for everyone to participate in. Sing out! Sing out whatever you want to sing. Do you have kids? Sing some kid songs with them. Do you like the Blues? Gospel? Rock? Country? Something else? Go ahead and belt out as many songs as you can.

National Goof Off Day – This is a day to relax and do absolutely nothing, otherwise known as goofing off. I’m sure you don’t need any advice on how to accomplish that. We all have a need to goof off now and then so feel free to indulge yourself today.

World Water Day – This is a United Nations sponsored day, that began in 1993, to bring attention to the danger our freshwater supply is in because of  pollution. This year the theme for the day is “Wastewater”. The UN says that instead of wasting wastewater, we should reuse it in our homes. It is a potentially valuable resource that could make the water cycle work better if we use “greywater” on our gardens and lawns and green spaces in cities, as well as for things like cooling systems in industries and irrigation of farms.

As Young As You Feel Day – This day goes well with National Goof Off Day. You are as young as you feel, so do things that make you feel younger. Play with some kids, run outside, go for a hike, play some video games, take a nap. Whatever it is that you like to do that makes you feel younger than your age.

International Day Of The Seal – Created by Congress in 1982, there are some who believe it is celebrated on different days, but the most reliable looking information I could find says it is today. This is a day to bring attention to the problem of seal hunting. If people keep killing these beautiful creatures for sport, there won't be any left which would be very sad for people but will cause even bigger problems for the animals that hunt seals for food.

Brain Injury Awareness Day – On this day, as they do every year, Congress will participate in an awareness fair, briefing and reception. All focused on the effects of brain injuries which can be very traumatic and severe. It doesn't take much of an impact for your brain to be injured and it can have immense consequences that affect the victim for the remainder of his/her life. This day does not fall on the same day every year, it is always in March during Brain Injury Awareness Month, but the day depends on when the Congresspeople on the Congressional Brain Injury Task Force decide to make it.
