Ex-Spouse's Day, Pan American Day, Baisakhi, Tamil New Year, more

Telescope. Image: Idea go;
April 14th, 2011, is Ex-Spouse's Day, Pan American Day, Baisakhi, Tamil New Year, National Look Up At The Sky Day, Reach As High As You Can Day, International Moment Of Laughter Day, Support Teen Literature Day, and Children With Alopecia Day.

I'm so happy to be exempt from celebrating this holiday, Ex-Spouse's Day. If the day has meaning for you, please try to find some peace and common ground, especially if you have children with your ex.

Pan American Day is meant to be a "commemorative symbol of the American nations and the voluntary union of all in one continental community."

Baisakhi is usually celebrated on April 13th, but every thirty-six years the date is April 14th. 2011 is one such year. Based on the Hindu solar calendar, Baisakhi is the new year celebration in northern India.

According to Hindu mythology, on this date Lord Brahma began the creation of the world. Thus begins the Tamil New Year. The Tamils are native to Tamil Nadu, India, and Sri Lanka.

On National Look Up At The Sky Day, take time to appreciate the wonders of the heavens. Which do you find more awe-inspiring - clouds, sunsets, or stars?

Dream big - today is Reach As High As You Can Day.

I've advised my daughter to marry someone who can make her laugh, because laughter makes the tough times easier. Find many, many moments to laugh today, in honor of International Moment Of Laughter Day.

Thursday of Library Week is always Support Teen Literature Day. Remember, an e-book is still a book!

Alopecia is an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss on the head and body. Learn how you can help on Children With Alopecia Day.
