Boston Marathon, Stress Awareness Day, Day of the Mushroom, more

April 16th, 2012, is The Boston Marathon, National Librarian Day, National Stress Awareness Day, Emancipation Day, Sechselauten, Orthodox Easter Monday, Day of the Mushroom, and National Eggs Benedict Day.

The 116th Boston Marathon takes place today. $806,000 will be distributed among top finishers, along with up to $220,000 in bonuses if records are broken.

National Librarian Day is a time to appreciate the professionals who always know how to find books about kangaroos, the history of Italy, or knitting.

Taxes got you stressed? Stress Awareness Day is celebrated both today and November 2nd, in case you're super-stressed.

Emancipation Day commemorates the date in 1862 when President Abraham Lincoln signed the Compensated Emancipation Act.

They're blowing up the Boogg! Switzerland celebrates Sechselauten, in which the Boogg - a snowman - is blown up to welcome spring.

Orthodox Easter Monday takes place on the Monday following Orthodox Easter.

Serve up some delicious mushrooms in honor of Day of the Mushroom. Just be sure you know what you're doing if you hunt mushrooms in the wild, because some bite back.

On National Eggs Benedict Day, enjoy this classic dish featuring an English muffin topped with ham, poached egg, and hollandaise sauce.
