Do Something Day, Hug a GI Day, Toy Soldier Day, more

March 4th, 2012, is Do Something Day, Hug a GI Day, Toy Soldier Day, Dance the Waltz Day, National Grammar Day, Courageous Followers Day, Benjamin Harrison Day, Old Inauguration Day, International Scrapbooking Industry Day, Holy Experiment Day, and Pound Cake Day.

On Do Something Day, the world is your oyster. Seems the only option unavailable is doing nothing - and even breathing is something.

On Hug a GI Day, take a few precious moments to celebrate the courageous men and women who fight or have fought for your freedom. A hug is the least you could give.

Gather your little green guys and your weapons, then transport yourself back in time to your childhood, when war was a glamorous game. Take the same trip in your mind with a battle-themed video game. March 4th is Toy Soldier Day.

Yet another option for something to do is dancing. Today is Dance the Waltz Day! One - two - three. One - two - three. One - two - three. Beautiful.

Please be doing you're goodest to day to talk right, cuz its National Grammar Day, you know?

Usually the leader gets most of the credit, but where would that leader be without followers? Just some crazy person talking to himself. Today is Courageous Followers Day, celebrating the loyalty and perseverance of the all-important follower.

Benjamin Harrison Day honors the only United States president from Indiana.

Prior to 1937, United States presidents were inaugurated on March 4th, now remembered as Old Inauguration Day. In modern times, presidents are inaugurated on January 20th.

International Scrapbooking Industry Day is apparently a day for celebrating the business of scrapbooking, but that doesn't preclude anyone from enjoying the hobby today.

On Holy Experiment Day, take a leap of faith and pray for something that matters to you. You have nothing to lose, really, and you might just find faith or a miracle!

Don't take a mallet to your cake just because today is Pound Cake Day. A pound cake is so named because recipes call for a pound each of flour, sugar, eggs, and butter. So basic, so delicious, so ready to take on an accompaniment of sliced strawberries, kiwi, or pineapple. Yum.
