Blah Blah Blah Day, Poetry and the Creative Mind Day, more

April 17th, 2013, is National Blah Blah Blah Day, Poetry and the Creative Mind Day, National Bookmobile Day, Nothing like a Dame Day, World Hemophilia Day, Independence Day (Syria), Ellis Island Family History Day, and National Cheeseball Day.  

National Blah Blah Blah Day is a day to actually listen to - and follow through on - the stuff people say that usually goes in one ear and out the other. Just don't talk on and on about it.

Let your imagination soar on Poetry and the Creative Mind Day. Feel free to share your work in the Comments section below!

National Bookmobile Day is always celebrated on Wednesday of Library Week. Bookmobiles are a great supplement to school libraries.

Nothing like a Dame Day celebrates women. "Dame" is an old-fashioned term, but it implies a certain boldness and confidence.

World Hemophilia Day is a time to learn more about this bleeding disorder and how you can help.

Syria observes Independence Day on this date.

Did your ancestors pass through Ellis Island in search of a new life? April 17th marks the date, in 1907, when a record number of people entered the U.S. via Ellis Island. Today is Ellis Island Family History Day.

Have you ever made and/or served a cheese ball when you were not having a party? Live on the edge and do it today, in honor of National Cheeseball Day.
