Ides of March, Dumbstruck Day, Pears Helene Day, more

March 15th, 2014, is National Quilting Day, Everything You Think Is Wrong Day, True Confessions Day, Purim, Ides of March, Brutus Day, Dumbstruck Day, Buzzards Day, World Consumer Rights Day, National Peanut Lovers' Day, and National Pears Helene Day. 

The third Saturday in March is National Quilting Day. Happy quilting!

If you think today is Everything You Think Is Wrong Day, you're wrong. No, wait - now I'm confused.

All right, I confess. Today is Everything You Think Is Wrong Day. Today is also True Confessions Day. And that's all I'm gonna say about that.

Purim, the most festive of Jewish traditions, begins on the evening of March 15th and ends on the evening of March 16th. Celebrants exchange gifts, drink wine, and wear masks and costumes.

Beware the Ides of March, also known as Brutus Day. The Ides of March is the Roman way of saying March 15th, and on this date Julius Caesar realized that Brutus had betrayed him. "Et tu, Brute?"

Perhaps you're shocked that everything you think is wrong, or perhaps you're stunned by someone's true confessions, or perhaps you're dismayed that Brutus betrayed Caesar. That's perfect, because today is Dumbstruck Day.

Hinckley, Ohio, USA, observes Buzzards Day each year on this date, celebrating the birds' springtime arrival.

The theme for World Consumer Rights Day 2014 is: "Fix Our Phone Rights." Hear, hear!

Ballgame or no ballgame, enjoy some peanuts today in honor of National Peanut Lovers' Day.

Try a truly elegant French dessert tonight - pears dressed to impress! Poach some pears, then serve with ice cream and chocolate sauce. National Pears Helene Day - ooh la la!
