Inconvenience Yourself Day, No Brainer Day, more

February 27th, 2013, is Inconvenience Yourself Day, No Brainer Day, International Polar Bear Day, Independence Day (Dominican Republic), National Strawberry Day, and National Kahlua Day. 

The fourth Wednesday in February is Inconvenience Yourself Day. The website dedicated to this holiday features the following explanation: "Inconvenience Yourself is a way of living. It includes not only how you behave, but also recognizing and acknowledging the actions of others." In other words: take time to hold a door for someone, yield to someone in traffic, consider the needs of others.

No Brainer Day is the perfect opportunity to coast through items that must be done, that don't require much brain-power. Crank up the tunes and gather your tax receipts. Turn on your favorite TV show and hem that pair of pants. Brew a cup of tea and make those phone calls. You get the idea.

Polar Bears International asks each of us to help reduce CO2 in the environment, to help preserve the habitat of the polar bear. For example, turn your thermostat down five degrees or add weather stripping to your doors. Do your part on International Polar Bear Day.

The Dominican Republic observes Independence Day on February 27th.
National Strawberry Day is a great time to enjoy some strawberry shortcake, a strawberry smoothie, chocolate-covered strawberries, or just plain old fresh strawberries. Delicious!

After a long day of performing no-brainer tasks, saving polar bears, and eating strawberries, it's time to relax. Luckily, today is National Kahlua Day. Straight up or combined with other ingredients, Kahlua goes down smooth.
