Do you sport a mohawk or a mullet? Did you like Kate Middleton's wedding do? Celebrate Hairstyle Appreciation Day!

It's important to be honest, but also wise to know when a harmless "white lie" is called for. Celebrate the spirit of Honesty Day.

Today is Beltane, a spring fertility festival for the Wiccans. Enjoy these selected songs for the occasion.

Spank Out Day spreads a message of "Raising responsible (good) kids without hitting."

Just Pray No! Worldwide Weekend of Prayer and Fasting, takes place from April 30th to May 1st. Christian participants pray for those who are addicted to drugs, as well as for their families.

National Rebuilding Day honors Rebuilding Together, an organization that promotes affordable home ownership and community revitalization.

Depending on your surroundings, Sense of Smell Day could be pleasant or unbearable. Wishing you a day full of cinnamon, roses, fresh air, and....bacon!

You're invited to attend Eeyore's Birthday Party in Austin, Texas, USA.

World Tai Chi and Qigong Day raises awareness of the benefits of Tai Chi and meditation - "One World ... One Breath." Also celebrated as World Healing Day.

Today is International Marconi Day, honoring Guglielmo Marconi, instrumental in the development of radio.

The theme of the 2011 World Veterinary Day is "Rabies."

Today is National Oatmeal Cookie Day, not to be confused with National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day, celebrated in March. But have whichever kind you like. I won't tell!
