Are you ready? March 4th, 2011, features nine unique holidays: National Grammar Day, Hug a G.I. Day, Employee Appreciation Day, Old Inauguration Day, Pound Cake Day, Benjamin Harrison Day, Holy Experiment Day, Toy Soldier Day, and World Day of Prayer.

Today bees National Grammar Day. You learnded good in school, you know?

For Hug a G.I. Day, do something special for someone in the U.S. Army, currently or in the past. If they're far away, send an ecard.

Employee Appreciation Day is always celebrated on the first Friday in March. Job satisfaction leads to productivity, right?

March 4th, Old Inauguration Day, used to be the date when U.S. Presidents took office. Since the date was changed in 1937, U.S. Presidents have taken office on January 20th.

Pound Cake Day offers a great excuse to eat cake. Pound cake is so named because many recipes call for a pound of flour, a pound of sugar, and a pound of butter.

Benjamin Harrison Day honors America's twenty-third president. He held the office from 1889 to 1893.

Holy Experiment Day is a time to try something new in the spirit of your religious beliefs, whatever they may be.

Get those toy soldiers out of the attic and play, in honor of Toy Soldier Day.

World Day of Prayer always takes place on the first Friday in March. Christian women are encouraged to "become aware of the whole world and no longer live in enriched by the faith experience of Christians of other countries and cultures...take up the burdens of other people and pray with and for them...[and] become aware of their talents and use them in the service of society."

The Holiday Whiz advice mashup: Based on the information above, determine the date on which Benjamin Harrison was inaugurated. Bake a pound cake, decorate it with toy soldiers, and present it to a G.I. Create a thank-you card for an employee, using impeccable grammar. Compose a unique, heartfelt prayer in honor of Holy Experiment Day and World Day of Prayer.
