Magic Day, Crowded Nest Awareness Day, Loving Day, Red Rose Day, more

June 12th, 2011 is a busy day for celebrations: Magic Day, Crowded Nest Awareness Day, Loving Day, Red Rose Day, International Cachaca Day, Multicultural American Child Awareness Day, World Day Against Child Labour, Abused Women and Children's Awareness Day, Pentecost, Whitsunday, National Children's Day, Independence Day (Philippines), Independence Day (Russia), Chaco Armistice Day, and National Peanut Butter Cookie Day.

June 12th is Magic Day. Celebrate the wonder of magic - literal tricks and elusive magical moments.

Crowded Nest Awareness Day is a sign of the times. More adult children are either returning home after time away, or never leaving in the first place. Not to mention the children of those children. Maybe Murphy beds will come back in vogue.

Do something special with the ones you love - it's Loving Day!

Conveniently, Loving Day coincides with Red Rose Day. Is that inspiration enough for you?

International Cachaca Day honors a Brazilian spirit - the third most-consumed spirit in the world - made from fermented sugar cane. Cachaca is used to create Brazil's national drink, the Caipirinha.

Multicultural American Child Awareness Day is a time to recognize and appreciate the diversity of children in the United States. We are, after all, the melting pot of the world.

World Day Against Child Labour was first launched in 2002 by the International Labor Organization, to increase awareness of the plight of children forced into child labor.

On Abused Women and Children's Awareness Day people come together in prayer and in action to end violence against women and children.

Pentecost is always celebrated seven weeks after Easter. "Pentecost" means "fiftieth day" in Ancient Greek. It is one of the three most important days on the Christian calendar - honoring the Holy Spirit, one-third of the Trinity. The day is also known as Whitsunday in the UK, because of the white robes worn by newly-baptized church members.

National Children's Day, always celebrated on the second Sunday in June, is a time to offer "faith, hope, love, and commitment" to our children.

Filipinos celebrate Independence Day on June 12th each year. The Philippines gained independence from Spain in 1898.

Russians celebrate Independence Day on June 12th each year, remembering many struggles of generations past.

Paraguay celebrates Chaco Armistice Day, commemorating their victory over Bolivia in the 1930s. Paraguay won control over much of the Chaco Boreal.

Celebrate National Peanut Butter Cookie Day by whipping up a batch. If it's too hot for baking where you are, just grab some plain cookies, a jar of peanut butter, and a knife. Voila - instant peanut butter cookie sandwiches!
