On the last Saturday in April, the people of Austin, Texas, celebrate Eeyore's Birthday Party. Just for once, maybe that sad mule of Winnie the Pooh fame will crack a smile.

Do you smell something? If so, may it be something pleasant. Spritz some cologne, gather some fresh flowers, bake a loaf of bread. Today is Sense of Smell Day.

Doo Dah Parade Day is Pasadena, California's laid-back parade. Apparently, last-minute registrations are welcome.

You shouldn't need instructions to celebrate Kiss Your Mate Day. Just pucker up!

Great Poetry Reading Day is a time to celebrate your favorite poet - Walt Whitman, Shakespeare, Maya Angelou, Emily Dickinson, or even yourself!

The people at the Gone-ta-Pott site have declared the 28th of every month to be Gone-ta-Pott Day. No matter how badly your day or month is going, take a moment to relax and have a laugh.

The theme of World Day for Safety and Health at Work in 2012 is, "Promoting health in a green economy."

The theme of World Veterinary Day in 2012 is, "The veterinary profession tackles Antimicrobial Resistance."

National Day of Mourning originated in Canada and has since spread to over eighty countries, honoring workers who lost their lives or were injured in the workplace. In the United States, the day is known as Workers Memorial Day.

World Tai Chi and Qigong Day is celebrated in cities all over the globe. At 10:00 a.m., your local time, come together and breathe together "to provide the world a healing image of our planet and our people." The event is known by many names, including  World Healing Day, World Aboriginal and Native Sacred Ceremony and Dance Day, World Yoga Day, World Meditation Day, World Prayer Day, and World Reiki Day.

Celebrate National Blueberry Pie Day because blueberries are good for you and just plain good.
