Running of the Bulls Festival, Fried Chicken Day, more

July 6th, 2013, is International Cherry Pit Spitting Championship, International Day of Cooperatives, Take Your Webmaster to Lunch Day, Running of the Bulls Festival, Day of Statehood (Lithuania), Independence Day (Comoros), Republic Day (Malawi), and National Fried Chicken Day.

Don't miss the 39th annual International Cherry Pit Spitting Championship - they say it's "Spit-tacular!"

International Day of Cooperatives is observed on the first Saturday in July. "The development of small enterprise groups can benefit rural economies because they help promote growth in rural areas."

Do you have a webmaster? If so, do the right thing for your tech guru - celebrate Take Your Webmaster to Lunch Day. Today is Saturday, but any day in the upcoming work week will suffice.

The Running of the Bulls Festival takes place in Pamplona, Spain from July 6th to July 14th each year. Today's opening ceremonies feature fireworks and celebration.

Lithuania celebrates the Day of Statehood on July 6th, honoring their one and only king, Mindaugas. King Mindaugas was crowned in 1253. Modern-day festivities feature knights, old-time crafts, and music.

Comoros celebrates Independence Day on July 6th. The country gained independence from France in 1975.

Malawi celebrates Republic Day or National Day, commemorating their independence from Britain in 1966.

Perhaps you've had enough barbecue in recent days. If so, you'll be glad to know that today is National Fried Chicken Day.
