Ridvan, Maundy Thursday, High Five Day, Kindergarten Day, more

April 21st, 2011, is the Festival of Ridvan, Maundy Thursday, National High Five Day, Kindergarten Day, San Jacinto Day, and National Chocolate-Covered Cashews Day.

The Festival of Ridvan begins at sunset on April 21st and continues until sunset on May 2nd in the Bahai faith. The festival commemorates the period of time spent by Baha'u'llah in the Ridvan Garden.

Maundy Thursday or Holy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper of Jesus.

On the tenth annual National High Five Day, consider donating to their scholarship fund. Or just give someone a high five for a job well done.

Kindergarten Day is celebrated on the birth date of Friedrich Froebel, the man who started the first kindergarten in Germany in 1837. "Kindergarten" translates literally from German as "children's garden."

San Jacinto Day commemorates a battle in 1836 between Texas and Mexico, in Texas' fight for independence from Mexico.

Nothing beats a perfect blend of sweet and savory. Celebrate National Chocolate-Covered Cashews Day!
