Read Across America Day is observed every year on March 2nd, the birth date of the incredible Dr. Seuss, Theodor Geisel. Read with your kids today. Enjoy a book during your lunch hour. Download some new titles for your e-reader. Find ways to incorporate reading time into your busy schedule. This holiday is also known as  Dr. Seuss Day and Cat in the Hat Day.

The first Friday in March is Employee Appreciation Day. IF you're fortunate enough to be the boss, think back to your days as an employee. What gesture could your boss have made, to make your workday a little brighter? Nothing beats a raise, of course.

Texas Independence Day commemorates Texas' independence from Mexico, back in the 19th century. Some celebrate this holiday as Texas Flag Day or Sam Houston Day. Sam Houston was elected President of the Republic of Texas in 1836.

The first Friday in March is the World Day of Prayer.

Ethiopia observes Adwa Day on March 2nd.

How's your potassium level these days? Bananas are loaded with potassium, so use that fact as an excuse to enjoy a decadent dessert. Celebrate National Banana Cream Pie Day with zero guilt!
