Let It Go Day, Pecan Sandies Day, more

June 23rd, 2013, is National Let It Go Day, National Columnists' Day, Public Service Day, National Pink Day, Voidupuha, St. John's Eve, and Pecan Sandies Day.

National Let It Go Day is a time to stop beating yourself up for past mistakes. Don't forget about them, don't repeat them, but do let them go. Oh, and vow to do better in the future.

Celebrate your favorite columnists on National Columnists' Day. Some of my favorites from the past include Erma Bombeck, Ann Landers, Mike Royko, Elaine Viets, and Bob Greene.

Public Service Day, created by the United Nations, is observed on June 23rd each year to recognize the value and virtue of public service.

On National Pink Day, dress from head to toe in pink or just wear an accent piece. The origin of this day is unclear, but some groups are choosing to highlight the campaign to fight breast cancer.

Estonians observe Voidupuha or Victory Day on June 23rd, celebrating their independence since 1992.

St. John's Eve takes place on the day before the traditional Midsummer's Day. No matter that the date doesn't line up with the actual Summer Solstice, June 21st in 2013. Bonfires are lit on St. John'e Eve to ward off evil spirits.

National Pecan Sandies Day honors a simple sugar cookie, upgraded with chopped pecans. Delicious!
