Everything You Think Is Wrong Day, Ides of March, more

March 15th, 2012, is Everything You Think Is Wrong Day, True Confessions Day, Ides of March, Brutus Day, Dumbstruck Day, Absolutely Incredible Kid Day, Buzzards Day, World Consumer Rights Day, Companies that Care Day, National Peanut Lovers' Day, and National Pears Helene Day. 

If you think today is Everything You Think Is Wrong Day, you're wrong. No, wait - now I'm confused.

All right, I confess. Today is Everything You Think Is Wrong Day. Today is also True Confessions Day. And that's all I'm gonna say about that.

Beware the Ides of March, also known as Brutus Day. The Ides of March is the Roman way of saying March 15th, and on this date Julius Caesar realized that Brutus had betrayed him. "Et tu, Brute?"

Perhaps you're shocked that everything you think is wrong, or perhaps you're stunned by someone's true confessions, or perhaps you're dismayed that Brutus betrayed Caesar. That's perfect, because today is Dumbstruck Day.

The 16th annual Absolutely Incredible Kid Day is sponsored by Camp Fire USA. Adults are encouraged to write letters to kids, showing "support, love and encouragement." Nice!

Hinckley, Ohio, USA, observes Buzzards Day each year on this date, celebrating the birds' springtime arrival.

The theme for World Consumer Rights Day 2012 is: "Our money, our rights: campaigning for real choice in financial services." A worthy cause, indeed.

The third Thursday in March is Companies that Care Day. The philosophy behind the event is: "If we all do a little, we can truly accomplish a lot." Organizers promote the 10 Characteristics of Socially Responsible Employers.

Ballgame or no ballgame, enjoy some peanuts today in honor of National Peanut Lovers' Day.

Try a truly elegant French dessert tonight - pears dressed to impress! Poach some pears, then serve with ice cream and chocolate sauce. National Pears Helene Day - ooh la la!
