Husband Appreciation Day, Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Day, more

April 20th, 2013, is Look Alike Day, National Pot Smokers Day, Volunteer Recognition Day, LIma Bean Respect Day, and National Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Day.

The third Saturday in April is Husband Appreciation Day. Surprise him in some special way, perhaps with a vintage record album or some chocolate-covered cashews (see holidays below).

These days record stores don't actually sell many records, although there is some resurgence. Audiophiles rejoice, for today is Record Store Day.

The third Saturday in April is observed as International Marconi Day. 2013 is the 26th annual celebration, bringing radio enthusiasts together.

Do you resemble someone famous, or do you aspire to? If so, celebrate Look Alike Day!

4/20 is National Pot Smokers Day, a nod to the idea that people get ready to, uh, relax with a smoke, at around 4:20 in the afternoon. No comment - I'm just the messenger here.

Do you know someone who goes above and beyond, always ready to lend a hand to those in need? Let them know you've noticed! Thank them for their efforts on Volunteer Recognition Day.

Do you like lima beans? Sorry to say, I do not. They're okay in something like fifteen-bean soup, where their flavor is overpowered by others. Anyway, today is Lima Bean Respect Day, which only proves that a lot of people don't care much for them. Just consider - there's no need to create a Pizza Respect Day or Ice Cream Respect Day, am I right?

National Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Day celebrates a fun and delicious dessert. Nothing quite compares to the wonder of flipping the pan over to reveal an edible mosaic of pineapples and cherries.
