I didn't know that spring had 2 starting dates. I may not be winning anything from here, but at least I'm learning some things.

Old Stuff Day http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreh...ldstuffday.htm

We are supposed to get out of our boring daily routine and do something exciting. Anyone have some suggestions?

My research suggests that we should enjoy some Banana Cream Pie today.

That's not my favorite pie, but I think I would enjoy some anyway.

Thanks for the video link - Besides it being I Want You To Be Happy Day, it is also

If Pets Had Thumbs Day http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreh...tthumbsday.htm

National Anthem Day (as already referenced )

Peach Blossom Day http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreh...blossomday.htm

Regarding "If Pets Had Thumbs Day", I wonder if psychedelic drugs were involved when someone thought up this holiday?
