Fanny Pack Day, Panic Day, Bang Clang Day, more

March 9th, 2013, is International Fanny Pack Day, Descendants Day, Panic Day, Bang Clang Day, Get Over It Day, Joe Franklin Day, and National Crabmeat Day.

International Fanny Pack Day is observed on the second Saturday in March. We can argue about the fashion merits of the fanny pack, but there's no disputing the convenience factor!

Descendants Day takes place on the final day of Celebrate Your Name Week. If you have older relatives, ask them for info about your family tree before it's too late. Take good notes! You'll be glad you did.

Does the thought of revealing your middle name make you panic? Perfect, because today is Panic Day. Just take a deep breath. Everything will be okay.

Bang Clang Day commemorates the first battle between armored ships, the Monitor and the Merrimac. The 1862 event is known as the Battle of Hampton Roads.

Get Over It Day is your opportunity to get over whatever has been bothering you lately. Write it down and throw it in the fire on the GetOverItDay website!

Joe Franklin Day honors the host of the longest-running television show. Between 1950 and 1993, over 28,000 episodes of The Joe Franklin Show were produced!

On National Crabmeat Day, enjoy crab salad, crab rangoon, or - best of all - a massive platter of steamed crab legs with drawn butter on the side.
