Earmuffs Day, Railroad Day, Popcorn Lovers Day, more

March 13th, 2014, is Earmuffs Day, Jewel Day, National Open an Umbrella Indoors Day, Good Samaritan Involvement Day, K9 Veterans Day, Ta'anit Esther, Railroad Day, World Kidney Day, Popcorn Lovers Day, and National Coconut Torte Day.

On this date in 1877, Chester Greenwood patented the Greenwood Champion Ear Protector. If your local weather is cold enough, rock your fuzzy earmuffs on Earmuffs Day.

Jewel Day is the perfect time to flaunt your jewels or give jewels to someone you love. Your favorite blogger likes rubies!

National Open an Umbrella Indoors Day is a holiday to celebrate at your own risk. Many people believe that it's bad luck to open an umbrella indoors. Of course, if you need to open an umbrella inside your house, bad luck is already in your midst.

Good Samaritan Involvement Day mourns the death of Catherine "Kitty" Genovese, who was stabbed to death while thirty-eight people stood by, not wanting to get involved. In the memory of Ms. Genovese, get involved if you can help! At the very least, dial 911.

K9 Veterans Day commemorates the founding of the United States K9 Corps in 1942.

Purim begins on the evening of March 15th, celebrating the survival of the Jews despite Haman's plot to destroy them in a single day. Ta'anit Esther, the Fast of Esther, begins today and continues through the hours leading up to Purim.

Railroad Day is a day to impress upon the United State Congress the role the railroad industry plays in "restoring America's economy, improving America's environment, and connecting America in the global marketplace."

The theme for World Kidney Day 2014 is "Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and Aging."

If you're in the mood for a movie and a snack, you're in luck. The second Thursday in March is Popcorn Lovers Day.
