Be an Angel Day, Eat a Peach Day, more

August 22nd, 2013, is Be an Angel Day, National Tooth Fairy Day, Punctuation Day, Hoodie Hoo Day (Southern Hemisphere), National Pecan Torte Day, and Eat a Peach Day.

On Be an Angel Day, celebrated every year since 1993, everyone is asked to "do one small act of service for someone." What will you do?

Moving from angel to fairy, today is also National Tooth Fairy Day. She works hard every night!

Attention! Are, you, sure??? Shall I continue; abusing -- these: punctuation marks? Of course not, because today is "*-National Punctuation Day. -*"

The Southern Hemisphere celebrates Hoodie Hoo Day on August 22nd. Step outside at noon, wave your arms in the air, then shout, "Hoodie-hoo!" If you're lucky, your efforts will help usher in spring.

National Pecan Torte Day celebrates a special layered concoction. A torte is a cake made from eggs, sugar, and ground nuts instead of flour.

If you crave something simpler, more natural than pecan torte, take heart. Today is also Eat a Peach Day. Nothing tastes better than a sweet, juicy peach.
