Be Heard Day, Read Aloud Day, Purim, more

March 7th, 2012, is Discover What Your Name Means Day, National Be Heard Day, World Read Aloud Day, Purim, Ta'anit Esther, Holi, Dolyatra, Makha Bucha, National Cereal Day, and National Crown Roast of Pork Day.

National Be Heard Day celebrates the efforts of small businesses to outshine their larger competitors. Of course, the Internet levels that playing field a bit!
On World Read Aloud Day, read aloud to your kids. Better yet - if they're able, let your kids read aloud to you! Oh, and when they do, give them your undivided attention. No TV, no gadgets.

Purim begins on the evening of March 7th and continues through the evening of March 8th. Purim celebrates the survival of the Jews, despite Haman's plot to destroy them in a single day. Ta'anit Esther, the Fast of Esther, takes place in the hours leading up to Purim.

Holi and Dolyatra are festivals celebrated in India in conjunction with the March full moon.

Buddhists celebrate Makha Bucha during the March full moon.

Grab your bowl, your spoon, your milk, and your favorite cereal concoction in honor of National Cereal Day. Cereal is not only good for you (sans too much sugar, of course), but it's also convenient and easy to store. Add fresh fruit for even more health benefits and deliciousness.

If you're confident and ambitious in the kitchen, make the most of National Crown Roast of Pork Day. Oh, and please feel free to invite me over for dinner!
