Fossil Day, Feral Cat Day, Boss' Day, more

October 16th, 2013, is National Fossil Day, National Support Your Local Chamber of Commerce Day, Dictionary Day, Feral Cat Day, National Boss' Day, World Food Day, and National Liqueur Day.

The third Wednesday in October is National Fossil Day, not to be confused with October 12th's plain Fossil Day.

The third Wednesday in October is National Support Your Local Chamber of Commerce Day.
Dictionary Day commemorates the birth date of Noah Webster, author of A Compendious Dictionary of the English Language, considered to be the first American dictionary. Make a list of words you're unsure of - perhaps starting with "compendious" - then look them up!

Feral Cat Day is meant to prevent unnecessary killing of outdoor cats, via spay/neuter programs and educational outreach.

On National Boss' Day, show your boss some appreciation. Jobs are valuable commodities these days.

The theme for World Food Day 2013 is "Sustainable Food Systems for Food Security and Nutrition."

Raise a glass or two in celebration of National Liqueur Day. Just make sure someone else drives you home.
