Great American Wicnic, Chocolate Eclair Day, more

June 22nd, 2013, is Great American Wicnic, Great American Backyard Campout, Midsummer Eve, American Radio Relay League Field Day, Take Your Dog to Work Day, Stupid Guy Thing Day, Anti-Fascist Resistance Day, and National Chocolate Eclair Day.

The Great American Wicnic takes place today in many U.S. cities - tomorrow in the event of rain. Wikipedia is the organizer of this techy event, featuring blankets and picnic fare. Wikipedia describes the event as "the picnic anyone can edit!"

The annual Great American Backyard Campout, sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation, takes place on the fourth Saturday in June. Register your team or donate to raise funds, benefiting NWF programs that "get American kids outside."

Scandinavia celebrates the longest day of the year on the Saturday between June 20th and June 26th. Traditional Midsummer Eve festivals feature rituals related to fertility and the harvest.

American Radio Relay League Field Day, "the largest on-air Amatuer Radio activity under the sun," takes place today. The objectives are to operate as many stations as possible on eligible bands and to learn to operate in abnormal, less than optimal conditions.

If you're a guy, what's the stupidest thing you've ever done? Ladies, how about that guy of yours? Be careful out there - today is Stupid Guy Thing Day.

During World War II, Croatia fought against the Axis powers, mostly fascist states. Croatia remembers that struggle by celebrating Anti-Fascist Resistance Day on June 22nd each year.
