Day of the Dead, Plan Your Epitaph Day, Deviled Egg Day, more

November 2nd, 2013, is Day of the Dead, All Souls' Day, Plan Your Epitaph Day, Look for Circles Day, Cookie Monster Day, and National Deviled Egg Day.

Day of the Dead began yesterday for some, with festivities continuing today. It is a time of rejoicing, not of mourning.

All Souls' Day is observed by Catholics, to remember friends and loved ones who have passed.

In Sweden, All Saints' Day is observed on the Saturday between October 31st and November 6th. Lighted candles are placed on the graves of loved ones.

Plan Your Epitaph Day is deliberately set to coincide with the Day of the Dead. Stop and consider - how do you want to be remembered? Should the grand sum of your life be reduced to a pair of dates and your name on a stone?

Today is Look for Circles Day. You can look for literal circles, such as the rim of your coffee cup or the pupil of your eye, or metaphorical circles, such as pretzel logic or workplace chaos.

You've probably got a stockpile of candy left over from Halloween, but do you have any cookies? The lovable blue monster from Sesame Street would love some, in honor of Cookie Monster Day. Oh - and Cookie Monster loves Look for Circles Day, because most cookies are round!

Seems an odd coincidence that the Day of the Dead is also National Deviled Egg Day. Hmmm.
