Earmuffs Day, Jewel Day, Good Samaritan Involvement Day, more

March 13th, 2013, is Earmuffs Day, Jewel Day, Palindrome Day, National Open an Umbrella Indoors Day, Good Samaritan Involvement Day, No Smoking Day, Registered Dietitian Day, K9 Veterans Day, and National Coconut Torte Day.

On this date in 1877, Chester Greenwood patented the Greenwood Champion Ear Protector. If your local weather is cold enough, rock your fuzzy earmuffs on Earmuffs Day.

Jewel Day is the perfect time to flaunt your jewels or give jewels to someone you love. Your favorite blogger likes rubies!

Number fanatics, rejoice! Today is yet another Palindrome Day, with an elegantly reversible date - 3/13/13.

National Open an Umbrella Indoors Day is a holiday to celebrate at your own risk. Many people believe that it's bad luck to open an umbrella indoors. Of course, if you need to open an umbrella inside your house, bad luck is already in your midst.

Good Samaritan Involvement Day mourns the death of Catherine "Kitty" Genovese, who was stabbed to death while thirty-eight people stood by, not wanting to get involved. In the memory of Ms. Genovese, get involved if you can help! At the very least, dial 911.

No Smoking Day is observed on the second Wednesday in March. Here's to all the smokers out there who want to kick the habit!

While trying to stop smoking, why not try to improve your diet as well? Today is Registered Dietitian Day.

K9 Veterans Day commemorates the founding of the United States K9 Corps in 1942.
