Equal Pay Day, Draw a Picture of a Bird Day, more

April 8th, 2014, is Equal Pay Day, Free Cone Day, Be Kind to Lawyers Day, Draw a Picture of a Bird Day, All Is Ours Day, Hanamatsuri Flower Festival, and National Empanada Day. 

Wear red on Equal Pay Day, to promote equal pay for equal work.

Today only, from noon until 8:00 in the evening, visit your local Ben and Jerry's for free ice cream or Greek Frozen Yogurt! Celebrate Free Cone Day!

You either like lawyers or you don't. Today is Be Kind to Lawyers Day. How will you celebrate?

Gather your art supplies - today is Draw a Picture of a Bird Day.

All Is Ours Day may take on a spiritual tone for some people today, but really, if all is ours, where will we keep it? Consider this great line by comedian Steven Wright: "I have the world's largest collection of seashells. I keep it on all the beaches of the world... perhaps you've seen it."

Japan celebrates the Hanamatsuri Flower Festival to honor Sakyamuni Buddha on his birthday.

Visit your favorite Mexican restaurant or concoct your own filled pastries on National Empanada Day. Lavesta at Months of Edible Celebrations recommends filling them with leftovers - brilliant!
