Pecan Day (would have been good in that cobbler yesterday)

Pan American Day (the airline? Are they still around?)

Tax Day (so I am a little late posting today. In related disasters...)

Titanic Remembrance Day (hold on Jack)

Glazed Spiral Ham Day (personally, I think the spiral cut is less than essential in a ham)

Rubber Eraser Day (also important at Tax Time)

And...

For some reason, I read that as Glazed SPATIAL Ham Day.

A spatial ham is a good thing.

Not holidays but today also marks...

Da Vinci's Birthday
The day Abraham Lincoln died
The day FDR was buried.
The day the Titanic struck the iceberg.
The day Notre Dame burned.

Montaigne windows appear to withstand mass destruction.

On to business.

Easter (but you probably knew that. Go maul a chocolate bunny already)

Kindergarten Day (school on a Sunday!??? Preposterous!)

Yellow winged mouse Day (it's a symbol for an Army Unit that served in Vietnam qhicheams at some point in my life time, there were army trucks, Jeep's and helicopters painted with winged mouse symbols which would explain the most recent Batmobile)

And...

Chocolate Covered Cashews Day (seems like a bit obscure for a full day but if you have a chocolate bunny and some cashews, you may as well melt part of it down and coat those nuts)

Earth Day (Earth is important, all my stuff is there)

Girl Scout Leaders Day (the hell with the rank and file, today is for the illuminati that control the cookies)

Dyngus Day (a Polish holiday celebrating the end of Lent and return to reckless behavior. It's like Mardi Gras with peirogi and accordions instead of king cake and beads)

Take a Chance Day (or leave a chance in the plate for someone else)

Picnic Day (bound to be a food on the list you can bring to that soggy ground picnic today)
