Worship of Tools Day, World's Largest Rattlesnake Roundup, more

March 11th, 2011, is Worship of Tools Day, the first day of the World's Largest Rattlesnake Roundup, Johnny Appleseed Day, Middle Name Pride Day, Dream Day, and Oatmeal Nut Waffle Day.

Attention, handy people - today is Worship of Tools Day. Feel free to use our house as your place of worship. Let's could start in the kitchen or in the basement....

The World's Largest Rattlesnake Roundup, which begins today, happens on the second weekend in March each year in Sweetwater, TX. Buyers bid for skins, meat, and venom, while snake hunters do their best to meet the demand. The event also includes family-oriented activities.

Johnny Appleseed Day is celebrated twice a year: March 11th, the presumed date of his death; and September 26th, the date of his birth.

Friday of Celebrate Your Name Week is Middle Name Pride Day. Some people hide their middle names; some use their middle names in lieu of less-desirable first names. I took my maiden name as a new middle name on my wedding day.

Dream Day is elusive, like a dream, regarding info about its origin. However, it's such a sweet idea for a celebration I can't leave it out.

Oatmeal Nut Waffle Day is today - some of these food holidays are so specific! The author of this recipe is less than encouraging, but indulge if you so choose.

The Holiday Whiz advice mashup: Whip up some oatmeal nut waffles; add apples for extra flavor and nutrition; scatter the apple seeds in your yard. Dream about adopting a rattlesnake, falling in love with it, building it a homey display case, and naming it based on your middle name.
