Napping Day, Johnny Appleseed Day, more

March 11th, 2013, is National Napping Day, Palindrome Day, Johnny Appleseed Day, Worship of Tools Day, Commonwealth Day, and Oatmeal Nut Waffle Day.

The Monday after Daylight Savings Time is National Napping Day. No explanation needed, right?

Today is Palindrome Day once again! A palindrome is a word, phrase, or sentence that's spelled the same way forward or backward - "A man, a plan, a canal - Panama," for example. Today's date is a numerical palindrome - 3-11-13. This is a special day for wordsmiths and math geeks.

Johnny Appleseed Day is observed on March 11th and September 26th, the dates of his death and his birth, respectively. Plant a tree or at least eat an apple in his honor.

Today may be Sunday Monday, but there's another form of worship going on. March 11th is Worship of Tools Day. If some of you would like to worship your tools by making repairs at my house, please let me know.

Commonwealth Day is observed by the Commonwealth of Nations, all of which used to be part of the British Empire.

Oatmeal Nut Waffle Day narrows your breakfast options. Feel free to go crazy with the nuts, though - pecan, walnut, almond, pistachio - the holiday doesn't discriminate.

  1. Absolutely love this blog, but I'm fairly certain (you even said yourself :p) today is Monday. :)

  2. Ooops! I guess I spent too much time napping, not enough time editing. Thanks for the heads-up!
