Cellophane Tape Day, Old-Time Player Piano Day, Don't Fry Day, more

May 27th, 2011 is Cellophane Tape Day, Old-Time Player Piano Day, National Grape Popsicle Day, Don't Fry Day, Heat Safety Awareness Day, and Sun Screen Day. Today used to be National Wig Out Day as well.

Why should duct tape get all the attention? Tape together a gift, a collage, or a hem with good old cellophane tape today, in honor of Cellophane Tape Day.

Many readers of The Holiday Whiz are too young to remember player pianos, which used paper music rolls to tell the piano which notes to play. They're the mp3 players of 100 years ago! Enjoy this video  in honor of Old-Time Player Piano Day:

Don't bother with lipstick today, ladies. Just grab a grape popsicle and rock that purple smile! May 27th is National Grape Popsicle Day.

If it's hot where you are, take proper precautions. If it's not hot, just wait - unless you live way up north, you'll get your turn. Learn ways to protect yourself from heat stroke on Heat Safety Awareness Day.

An excellent companion to Heat Safety Awareness Day is Don't Fry Day, also known as Sun Screen Day. Yes, wearing sun screen can be a sticky hassle - but your alternative could be skin cancer.

National Wig Out Day was traditionally celebrated on this date, but the founder is moving the holiday to September.
