Badger Day, Hollerin' Contest Day, Go Fishing Day, Splurge Day, more

June 18th, 2011 is Badger Day, National Hollerin' Contest Day, Go Fishing Day, International Picnic Day, National Splurge Day, World Jugglers Day, Queen's Birthday (Cambodia), Eid el-Galaa, National Day (Seychelles), National Martini Day, and International Sushi Day.

Badger Day is always celebrated on the third Saturday in June. The NFBG (National Federation of Badger Groups) raises money to help save badgers.

Also on the third Saturday in June, Spivey's Corner, North Carolina hosts the National Hollerin' Contest. Yaaaaahhh!

After everyone stops hollerin', it's time to catch a big mess of fish. Gotta stay quiet. Now keep your eye on that bobber. Today is Go Fishing Day.

How's the weather where you are? How's the family? Gather your loved ones, some yummy food, and a blanket, then celebrate International Picnic Day indoors or out.

Today is National Splurge Day. Maybe in our current economy we should put this holiday on hiatus. Or we could splurge on something non-monetary, like an extra scoop of ice cream or an extra hour of gaming. Be creative!

The IJA (International Jugglers' Association) presents World Jugglers Day, "to help spread the fun of juggling and to bring jugglers together all over the world." We have three bowling balls, but, sadly, only one chain saw.

On June 18th Cambodians celebrate Queen's Birthday, honoring the birth of Her Royal Highness (HRH) Queen Mother Norodom Monineath Sihanouk.

Eid el-Galaa or Evacuation Day is an annual celebration in Egypt, remembering the day in 1954 when foreign troops evacuated the country.

National Day is celebrated on June 18th in the Seychelles, commemorating the formation of their constitutional democracy in 1993.

"Shaken, not stirred." Oh, and with an extra olive. Cheers - happy National Martini Day.

Today is the time to honor a food that is half work of art, half tasty bite. You eat first with your eyes, you know. Enjoy International Sushi Day.
