April 26th, 2013, is Arbor Day, National Kids and Pets Day, Hairball Awareness Day, Poem in Your Pocket Day, Hug a Friend Day, Shuffleboard Day, Richter Scale Day, World Intellectual Property Day, Global Youth Service Day,, and Pretzel Day.

Do something nice for Mother Nature today, in honor of Arbor Day.

Shimmer the Blog Dog.
National Kids and Pets Day - because the two naturally go together.

The last Friday in April is Hairball Awareness Day. If you have a strong sense of style and a strong stomach, check out this hairball jewelry.

Who could argue with a concept so friendly as Hug a Friend Day?

Even if you're not on a cruise ship or at a resort, take a mini vacation by playing shuffleboard. Wear flip-flops and drink lemonade to enhance the mood. Today is Shuffleboard Day.

Richter Scale Day honors the birth date of Charles Richter, inventor of the scale that measures the intensity of earthquakes.

World Intellectual Property Day is meant to raise awareness about the ins and outs of intellectual property, including copyright protection and fair use.

Global Youth Service Day gives young people a chance to learn the value of helping others. The event actually runs from April 26th to April 28th. Young people from the ages of five to twenty-five the world over participate.

Nab a bag of pretzels in honor of National Pretzel Day. My favorite are Snyder's Honey Mustard and Onion - Yum!
