Strange Music Day, Peach Pie Day, more

August 24th, 2013, is International Strange Music Day, Vesuvius Day, Can Opener Day, National Knife Day, Flag Day (Liberia), Independence Day (Ukraine), National Waffle Day, and National Peach Pie Day.

What's your concept of strange music? I think of Richard Cheese, Frank Zappa, and some contemporary jazz. Happy International Strange Music Day!

Vesuvius Day commemorates the date in 79 A.D. when Mount Vesuvius erupted, killing many, preserving some in the midst of their daily activities in Pompeii, Italy.

Do you buy canned goods anymore? Some of us have cut back, preferring to reduce sodium intake and appreciate the goodness of fresh food. Nonetheless, sometimes it's irresistably convenient to zip open a can of veggies or soup. August 24th is Can-Opener Day.

Let's focus on cooking, not stabbing, in honor of National Knife Day.

Liberia celebrates Flag Day on August 24th.

Ukraine celebrates Independence Day on August 24th.

Today, the anniversary of the first U.S. patent on a waffle iron, is National Waffle Day

As summer winds down, enjoy a sweet, juicy summer fruit. Celebrate nature's bounty on National Peach Pie Day.
