Sense of Smell Day, Morse Code Day, Prime Rib Day, more

April 27th, 2013, is Eeyore's Birthday Party, Sense of Smell Day, Doo Dah Parade Day, National Rebuilding Day, World Veterinary Day, World Tai Chi and Oigong Day, World Healing Day, World Aboriginal and Native Sacred Ceremony and Dance Day, World Yoga Day, World Meditation Day, World Prayer Day, World Reiki Day, Write an Old Friend Day, National Tell a Story Day, Mantanzas Mule Day, Morse Code Day, Babe Ruth Day, Lazarus Saturday, Independence Day (Sierra Leone), Independence Day (Togo), and Prime Rib Day. 

On the last Saturday in April, the people of Austin, Texas, celebrate Eeyore's Birthday Party. Just for once, maybe that sad mule of Winnie the Pooh fame will crack a smile.

Do you smell something? If so, may it be something pleasant. Spritz some cologne, gather some fresh flowers, bake a loaf of bread. Today is Sense of Smell Day.

Doo Dah Parade Day is Pasadena, California's laid-back parade. Apparently, last-minute registrations are welcome.

National Rebuilding Day honors Rebuilding Together, an organization that promotes affordable home ownership and community revitalization.

The theme of World Veterinary Day in 2013 is, "Vaccination to prevent and protect."

World Tai Chi and Qigong Day is celebrated in cities all over the globe. At 10:00 a.m., your local time, come together and breathe together "to provide the world a healing image of our planet and our people." The event is known by many names, including World Healing Day, World Aboriginal and Native Sacred Ceremony and Dance Day, World Yoga Day, World Meditation Day, World Prayer Day, and World Reiki Day.

Dear Reader,
Even though we have never met, we are connected by our love of holidays, both serious and strange. Thank you for taking a few moments each day to visit this blog.
All my best,  
The Holiday Whiz.  

There! I've just celebrated Write an Old Friend Day!

National Tell a Story Day is a chance to let loose with your best tale, whether true or fantastic.

During the Spanish-American War, the only casualty of one battle in the village of Mantanzas was a mule. The mule was buried with pomp and circumstance, and thus we have Mantanzas Mule Day.

Morse Code Day honors the birth date of Samuel Morse, creator of Morse Code.

Babe Ruth Day honors one of the greatest baseball players ever, the Great Bambino, whose batting stats are legendary.

Lazarus Saturday is observed by the Greek Orthodox Church on the Saturday before Holy Week.

Togo and Sierra Leone celebrate Independence Day on April 27th.

Wouldn't you enjoy a nice thick hunk of beef with a side of horseradish sauce? Of course! Celebrate  Prime Rib Day.
