Fanny Pack Day, Mario Day, Day of Awesomeness, more

March 10th, 2012, is International Fanny Pack Day, Descendants Day, Mario Day, International Day of Awesomeness, Harriet Tubman Day, National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, and National Blueberry Popover Day. 

International Fanny Pack Day is observed on the second Saturday in March. We can argue about the fashion merits of the fanny pack, but there's no disputing the convenience factor!

Descendants Day takes place on the final day of Celebrate Your Name Week. If you have older relatives, ask them for info about your family tree before it's too late. Take good notes! You'll be glad you did.

Mario Day honors Mario the plumber, of Nintendo game fame. Know why this holiday always takes place on the 10th of March? Mar 10. Mario. Get it now? Everybody sing along with Mario's theme song:

On the International Day of Awesomeness, celebrate the awesomeness in yourself, in others, and in the world. By the way, you're awesome for reading this blog. You're awesomely awesome if you share it with your friends!

Harriet Tubman Day honors a great woman in United States history. She escaped from slavery and became a "conductor" on the Underground Railroad, helping others to escape.

National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day offers an opportunity to support medical research, find out how you can help people around the world impacted by HIV/AIDS, and talk to your family about ways to avoid infection.

Enjoy a pastry treat that's delicious and full of antioxidants on National Blueberry Popover Day.
