Today we celebrate:

Eat Your Vegetables Day – Yesterday we celebrated Fresh Veggies Day.  Well, today you have to actually eat them, not just have them available. Vegetables are very good for you, but only if you eat them so your body get take advantage of the minerals, vitamins and nutrients that they have in abundance.

National Apple Strudel Day – Apple filling wrapped in a flaky, delicious pastry. Days like this make me sad that I have to be gluten-free. It is pretty much impossible to find a good, flaky, gluten free pastry for something like mouth-watering apple strudel.

Stewarts Root Beer Day – If you are a fan of root beer, which I am not, you may share the opinion of my husband that Stewarts brand is one of the best since it is based on the root beer fountain sodas of old. Have some today and enjoy the feelings of the Good Old Days that they bring to you.

World Day To Combat Desertification and Drought – This day was declared in 1994 by the United Nations General Assembly. The first celebration day was in 1995. This is a day to focus on the serious problems of drought and desertification that many countries, particularly in Africa, face today. Solutions are possible if we work together, and of course, with the climate changing there may many other places experiencing the same problems.

National Hollerin’ Contest Day - Celebrated on the third Saturday in June, this is a great opportunity for you to yell all you want to. Spivey’s Corner in North Carolina, a dinky town with a population of less than 500, holds a Hollerin’ Contest that is famous and draws thousands of visitors every year. Be as loud as you can today and maybe stage your own contest.

World Juggling Day – Celebrated on the Saturday closest to June 17th, this is a day that is sponsored by the International Juggler's Association (IJA). The goal of today is to spread the fun that juggling provides and bring jugglers everywhere together. I know a juggler personally and he never ceases to amaze me with his skills whenever I see him perform. Events will be held all over the world.
