Perfect Family Day, World Listening Day, more

July 18th, 2013, is Get to Know Your Customer Day, Global Hug Your Kids Day, Hug a Fat Bald Person Day, Perfect Family Day, World Listening Day, Nelson Mandela International Day, Uruguay Constitution Day, and National Caviar Day.

The third Thursday of every quarter is Get to Know Your Customer Day. That's good advice for anyone in business.

Today is Hug a Fat Bald Person Day. Trouble is, if you tell the person you're hugging about the holiday, you're calling them fat and bald. Good luck with that.

July 18th is Perfect Family Day. What is a perfect family? Who's to say? Sometimes the family that looks perfect is hiding a different reality behind closed doors. Make the most of your family, however crazy they may seem sometimes, and love each other.

July 18th is the fourth annual World Listening Day. The date commemorates the birth of composer R. Murray Schafer, who established the World Soundscape Project. World Listening Day is meant to raise awareness of our sonic environment and acoustic ecology. Have you ever participated in a soundwalk?

Nelson Mandela International Day takes place on the birthday of the former South African President and human rights advocate. The Nelson Mandela Foundation and the United Nations ask everyone to devote 67 minutes of time today to helping others, in honor of the 67 years Nelson Mandela has given to serving humanity.

Uruguay observes Constitution Day on July 18th with parades, rallies, and marathons.

Do you enjoy caviar? Salted fish eggs are considered a delicacy by many, disgusting by others. Almas caviar is the most expensive caviar in the world, at $25,000 for a kilo in a 24-carat gold tin. Order several tins today, in honor of National Caviar Day.
