Day of the Dead began yesterday for some, with festivities continuing today. It is a time of rejoicing, not of mourning.
All Souls' Day is observed by Catholics, to remember friends and loved ones who have passed.
Plan Your Epitaph Day is deliberately set to coincide with the Day of the Dead. Stop and consider - how do you want to be remembered? Should the grand sum of your life be reduced to a pair of dates and your name on a stone?
Celebrate Name Your Car Day with care. The only car I ever named was a yellow Maverick; I affectionately dubbed it "The Lemon." The car had its revenge when it spontaneously combusted.
Today is Look for Circles Day. You can look for literal circles, such as the rim of your coffee cup or the pupil of your eye, or metaphorical circles, such as pretzel logic or workplace chaos.
The first Friday in November is National Medical Science Liaison Awareness and Appreciation Day, to educate the public about the role of medical science liaisons.
You've probably got a stockpile of candy left over from Halloween, but do you have any cookies? The lovable blue monster from Sesame Street would love some, in honor of Cookie Monster Day. Oh - and Cookie Monster loves Look for Circles Day, because most cookies are round!
On National Breadstix Day, HotBox Pizza gives away free stix between 2:00 and 5:00 pm. One catch - you've got to be in the vicinity of West Lafayette, Indiana, USA.
Seems an odd coincidence that the Day of the Dead is also National Deviled Egg Day. Hmmm.
