Kick Butts Day, Swallows Return to Capistrano, more

March 19th, 2014, is Kick Butts Day, Let's Laugh Day, Tara Puja, St. Joseph's Day, Swallows Return to San Juan Capistrano Day, National Poultry Day, and National Chocolate Caramel Day.

Kick Butts Day isn't what you might think. It's about teaching kids not to smoke.

Let's Laugh Day is observed today, but please feel free to practice during the other 364 days of the year.

Buddhists observe Tara Puja, honoring Bodhisattva Goddess Tara.
St. Joseph's Day is a time to wear red, orange, or purple. The traditional feast includes meatless traditional Italian dishes.

Swallows Return to San Juan Capistrano Day is observed on St. Joseph's Day, but this year's parade will take place on March 22nd.

To celebrate National Poultry Day, cook up your favorite bird! The most decadent poultry dish I've ever had is turducken, which is a boneless chicken wrapped in a boneless duck, then wrapped in a turkey which is boneless except for the wings and drumsticks. There's stuffing between each layer, as well. Turducken is a Cajun poultry delight!

Good news to you lovers of sweets - today is National Chocolate Caramel Day. This flavor combination is all but irresistible!
