Silver Star Day honors wounded U.S. service men and women. Some states recognize this holiday, and momentum is growing to declare Silver Star Day a national holiday.

International Bereaved Mother's Day honors women who have experienced the worst pain imaginable - the loss of a child. National Infertility Survival Day recognizes women who have trouble conceiving. These holidays are meant to offer support to women who find this time of year especially difficult, with so much focus on Mother's Day.

The fifth annual Keep Kids Alive! Drive 25 Day is a plea to all drivers to slow down on residential streets.

"World peace through laughter" - what a wonderful idea. Celebrate World Laughter Day.

Loyalty Day is a time for U.S. citizens to reaffirm their loyalty to the United States and the heritage of American freedom.

On Mother Goose Day, remember and relive the joy of childhood nursery rhymes. Share with the little ones in your life!

The theme of Law Day 2011 is "The Legacy of John Adams: from Boston to Guantanamo."

Today is National Chocolate Parfait Day. Now you have the perfect excuse to indulge.
