Backgammon Day, Mustard Day, Chocolate Chip Day, more

August 4th, 2012, is  Backgammon Day, Coast Guard Day, National Mustard Day, and National Chocolate Chip Day.

On Backgammon Day, enjoy this two-player classic that dates back to Mesopotamia. Do you remember the rules?

Coast Guard Day honors the U.S. Coast Guard, who guard our shores and waterways. These days they also assist with Homeland Security.

The National Mustard Museum in Middleton, Wisconsin, USA, celebrates the 21st annual National Mustard Day today. Activities include mustard bowling, fishing for mustard, painting with mustard, the spinning wheel of mustard fortune, mustard tasting, and more. Don't miss the frozen mustard custard!

Today is National Chocolate Chip Day - not the cookie, just the chip. Do whatever you want with those chips, including eating 'em straight out of the bag!
