Face Your Fears Day, Pierogi Day, more

October 8th, 2013, is National Face Your Fears Day, Octopus Day, Cosmopolite's Day, American Touch Tag Day, Alvin C. York Day, Navy Day (Peru), Constitutional Day (Uganda), National Pierogi Day, and National Fluffernutter Day.

What is your greatest fear? Fear of heights, fear of flying, fear of coming out of the closet, fear of failure, fear of public speaking? Begin the journey to self-improvement on National Face Your Fears Day.

Today is Octopus Day, the first in this year's series of Cephalopod Awareness Days.

Cosmopolite's Day is one time when you have permission to shop, shop, shop, assuming your bank account can withstand the hit.

Tag - you're it! Today is American Touch Tag Day.

October 8th is Alvin C. York Day, honoring a hero of World War I, the recipient of the U.S. Medal of Honor and French Croix de Guerre. While separated from his patrol, Sergeant York somehow killed 20 enemy troops and captured 132 German soldiers.

Peru observes Navy Day on October 8th.

Uganda observes Constitutional Day on this date.

National Pierogi Day honors an Eastern European treat. Semi-circular pockets may contain any variety of savory ingredients.

Here's my confession for the day: I've never had a fluffernutter. Sorry! It's simple enough to make, evidently. Just spread one slice of bread with marshmallow fluff, spread another slice of bread with peanut butter, then combine them to make a sandwich. Voila! Now you know how to celebrate National Fluffernutter Day.
