Bacon Day, Hummingbird Day, Chicken Boy Day, more

September 1st, 2012, is International Bacon Day, National Hummingbird Day, International Vulture Awareness Day, Chicken Boy Day, National No Rhyme (Nor Reason) Day, Toy Tips Executive Toy Test Day, Emma M. Nutt Day, Building and Code Staff Appreciation Day, Orthodox New Year, Independence Day (Uzbekistan), and National Cherry Popover Day.

The Saturday before the first Monday in September is International Bacon Day. With apologies to everyone not allowed to eat this porky delight, bacon is possibly nature's most delectable food. Check out this tribute to bacon from The Trend Police.

The first Saturday of September is National Hummingbird Day. Do the hummingbirds know this? I'll watch for them today, flittering near our butterfly bushes and honeysuckle vines.

Chicken Boy Day is a time for Los Angeles residents to remember an icon of yesteryear. Chicken Boy once stood atop a restaurant bearing the same name.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
Some poems rhyme,
But this one doesn't.

Play around with non-rhyming words on National No Rhyme (Nor Reason) Day.

Toy Tips Executive Toy Test Day is an annual event in which executives test out new office toys and explore ways to increase creativity in the workplace.

"Is this the party to whom I am speaking?" Ah, memories of Lily Tomlin and Laugh-In. I'm reminiscing about old-time phone operators because today is Emma M. Nutt Day, honoring the first woman telephone operator.

Hold on to your hard hats - everyone is geared up to celebrate Building and Code Staff Appreciation Day!

September 1st brings the Orthodox New Year.

Uzbekistan observes Independence Day on September 1st.

Hungry for something sweet and fun to eat? Celebrate National Cherry Popover Day.
