Lost Sock Memorial Day, Tear the Tags off the Mattresses Day, more

May 9th, 2011 is Lost Sock Memorial Day, Tear the Tags off the Mattresses Day, World Migratory Bird Day, Root Canal Appreciation Day, Accounting Day, Library Legislative Day, National Women's Check-Up Day, and National Butterscotch Brownie Day.

Lost Sock Memorial Day is a time to seek out your missing socks, match up as many as possible, and - if you're really brave - toss out the orphans once and for all. You can even get a special deal on replacements on this day only.

If you were brave enough to toss out those orphan socks, maybe you're ready to be really, truly daring - celebrate Tear the Tags off the Mattresses Day!

The theme of the UN-sponsored 2011 World Migratory Bird Day is "Land-Use Changes from a Bird's-Eye View."

If you're into the movie Little Shop of Horrors,  you'll appreciate Root Canal Appreciation Day. All joking aside, thank the dentist who is there when a root canal is the only option.

According to the Accounting Day website, Accounting Day 2011 promises to be the best of the decade. Interesting, since this decade has eight more celebrations to go. But maybe they're right - their logo is pretty great.

Library Legislative Day, sponsored by the American Library Association, Chief Officers of State Library Agencies, and the District of Columbia Library Association, is meant to encourage government to continue support of the nation's libraries.

The ninth annual National Women's Check-Up Day is part of National Women's Health Week. Women are encouraged to have regular check-ups, because many conditions are easier to treat with early detection.

Got a sweet tooth? Been humming Debbie Harry tunes lately? Have a blondie, otherwise known as a butterscotch brownie, on National Butterscotch Brownie Day.
