Curling Is Cool Day, Banana Bread Day, Chili Day, more

Febryary 23rd, 2012, is Tennis Day, Curling Is Cool Day, Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, World Peace and Understanding Day, International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day, Banana Bread Day, and National Chili Day.

Tennis Day celebrates a game that was patented in 1874 by Major Walter Clopton Wingfield.

On Curling Is Cool Day, show some respect for a much-maligned sport. Curling is included in the Winter Olympics, after all.

Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day is designed to show girls that engineering is creative and collaborative. Engineers are changing the world!

World Peace and Understanding Day is a holiday created by Rotary International. According to the Rotary District 9200 website, "This day provides an opportunity for Rotary to reflect and build on its partnerships with various organisations and also inform the world on its diversity and internationality in addition to its activities."

On International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day, buy some fancy dog biscuits for your canine companions. Or, if you're truly ambitious, bake your own. (Personally, I don't find the need to bake special treats for someone who's happy to eat from a garbage can, but to each his own.)

If you have no dogs to bake for, bake some banana bread for yourself and your family today. This is an especially great idea if you have some bananas on the verge of blackness. Soft bananas make the best banana bread ever. Have a wonderful and happy Banana Bread Day!

The last Thursday in February is National Chili Day. Now, this is a holiday I can fully embrace. So many options - beans or no beans? beef, chicken, or pork? spicy or mild? Whatever you choose, save a little for tomorrow, then mix it with sour cream for a fabulous dip. Ole!
