Mourn for Your Money Day, Black Cow Day, more

June 10th, 2012, is Mourn for Your Money Day, Ballpoint Pen Day, National Children's Day, Multicultural American Child Awareness Day, Abused Women and Children's Awareness Day, National Iced Tea Day, and National Black Cow Day.

Today is the day to let off steam about the money withheld from your paychecks for taxes. Commemorate Mourn for your Money Day by asking for a raise or by sending an e-card. Hope you get a tax refund next year, at least.

On June 10th, 1943, the Biro brothers filed for a patent on their ballpoint pen design. Take your hand off that mouse, drop the iPad (carefully), turn away from the keyboard. Just for today, experience the simplicity of pen and paper in honor of Ballpoint Pen Day.

National Children's Day, always celebrated on the second Sunday in June, is a time to offer "faith, hope, love, and commitment" to our children.

Multicultural American Child Awareness Day is a time to recognize and appreciate the diversity of children in the United States. We are, after all, the melting pot of the world.

On Abused Women and Children's Awareness Day people come together in prayer and in action to end violence against women and children.

Iced Tea Month is one month-long celebration in June. In addition, June 10th is National Iced Tea Day. With or without lemon? Sweet tea or green? Maybe each flavor should have its own day in June.

Ever heard of a (non-bovine) black cow? Me neither, before stumbling upon this holiday. Turns out, it's simply an ice cream float made with vanilla ice cream and dark soda - cola or root beer. In honor of National Black Cow Day, guess I'll have to make one. It's research, right?
