Working Naked Day, Spunky Old Broads Day, Ice Cream for Breakfast Day, more

February 1st, 2014, is Working Naked Day, Hula in the Coola Day, Serpent Day, Robinson Crusoe Day, Spunky Old Broads Day, National Freedom Day, Abolition of Slavery in Mauritius, Imbolc, St. Brigid's Day, National Baked Alaska Day, Ice Cream for Breakfast Day, and Pisco Sour Day..

People who work from home, setting their own rules (and dress code), celebrate Working Naked Day today. People who work outside the home should probably skip this holiday.

Hula in the Coola Day is a time to ignore winter and embrace summer, to shed the sweater and don a grass skirt, to replace winter comfort foods with a Hawaiian luau feast.

Are you afraid of snakes? If so, keep your guard up today, Serpent Day.

Robinson Crusoe Day is the anniversary of the rescue of Alexander Selkirk, a sailor whose adventures inspired Daniel Defoe's book, Robinson Crusoe. Embark upon an adventure of your own!

Have a blast on Spunky Old Broads Day, if you happen to be a spunky old broad. In fact, go wild the whole month of February, because it's Spunky Old Broads Month!

National Freedom Day commemorates the signing of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution on February 1st, 1865. With his signature, President Abraham Lincoln ended slavery in the United States. Lincoln had issued the Emancipation Proclamation one month prior.

The island of Mauritius celebrates Abolition of Slavery in Mauritius, the anniversary of the 1835 event.

Imbolc, also known as  St. Brigid's Day, is the Celtic celebration of the beginning of spring.

Have you ever baked ice cream in your oven? If that sounds just plain crazy to you, then you've never had the glorious dessert known as Baked Alaska. Top a cake with a mound of ice cream, then insulate the ice cream in a layer of meringue. Bake until the meringue is golden, then enjoy. The ice cream will still be cold, a small miracle for National Baked Alaska Day!

If you're keen on feeding your kids a healthy breakfast every morning, don't tell them today is Ice Cream for Breakfast Day. Ignore the carton of pistachio ice cream in the freezer!

Cheers - today is Pisco Sour Day.
