Card Reading Day, Mother Language Day, more

February 21st, 2013, is Card Reading Day, International Mother Language Day, In Memory of Father of Independence (Vanuatu), and National Sticky Bun Day. 

Today is Card Reading Day. Brew some tea and go through your stash of romantic and charming greeting cards, send ecards to your friends, or visit a tarot card reader for advice.

The United Nations supports International Mother Language Day on February 21st. Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO, writes, "In this age of new technologies, books remain precious instruments, easy to handle, sturdy and practical for sharing knowledge, mutual understanding and opening the world to all. Books are the pillars of knowledge societies and essential for promoting freedom of expression and education for all."

Vanuatu observes In Memory of Father of Independence, honoring Father Walter Lini.

National Sticky Bun Day has nothing to do with sitting on honey-coated chairs (in case you wondered). Bake up a batch of caramelly, sticky, gooey buns and enjoy.
