Plush Animal Lover's Day, Chocolate Day, more

October 28th, 2013, is International School Library Day, La Saoire i mi Dheireadh Fomhair, Labour Day (New Zealand), Plush Animal Lover's Day, Gone-ta-Pott Day, Feast Day of Saint Jude, Ochi Day, Independence Day (Czech Republic), Wild Foods Day, and National Chocolate Day.

The fourth Monday in October is International School Library Day. Return those overdue books, kidlets!

The last Monday in October is celebrated in Ireland as a bank holiday - La Saoire i mi Dheireadh Fomhair. Festivities include music, food, a marathon, and Halloween-themed events.

New Zealand celebrates Labour Day on the fourth Monday in October.

Children and kids at heart, gather your animal friends. No, not the real ones. Gather your beloved plush critters and celebrate Plush Animal Lover's Day.

The 28th of every month is Gone-ta-Pott Day, as declared on the holiday website bearing the same name.

Today is the Feast Day of Saint Jude, patron saint of desperate cases and namesake of the incredible St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Greece observes Ochi Day (or Oxi Day), remembering when Greece said "ochi" (or "no") to Italian forces which wanted to invade the country in 1940. Greece then joined the Allied Forces against Hitler.

The Czech Republic observes Independence Day on this date.

October 28th is Wild Foods Day. Harvest some if you know what you're doing; visit a reputable health food store if you don't. At the very least, incorporate some fresh produce into your diet.

As if the upcoming Halloween doesn't offer enough sweet temptation, today we are tempted to indulge because it's National Chocolate Day.
