You Lost Me At Pixel-Peasant

You’ll never guess what today is. Seriously, you’ll never guess. It’s International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day! Too wacky? Do an experiment, for World Laboratory Day. Too much work? Go see a movie, for Movie Theater Day. Don’t worry if the movie got bad reviews, because it’s also Take A Chance Day!

Please Don’t Celebrate Around Me

You can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friend’s nose. Except maybe it’s ok just for today, since it’s International Nose Picking Day, haha! Yuck! Always remember, the mucous in your nose traps bacteria, before it gets in your lungs, so don’t eat your bacteria-filled boogers.

Shakespearean Bedtime Stories

Today is English Language Day. Celebrate by making sure you know the difference between Y-O-U-R and Y-O-U-apostrophe-R-E! You can also use old English words, like thee and thou. Dost thou know that it’s Talk Like Shakespeare Day as well? Wherefore art thou Romeo? He’s probably reading by candlelight, because it’s also World Book Night!

Interesting Picnic Foods

Going out to eat, doesn’t have to be expensive. Just have a picnic outside! Pack a lunch and eat in the park, your yard, or your porch, for Picnic Day. Your living room floor works too. It’s also Asparagus Day, and Cherry Cheesecake Day, so be sure to pack those foods, along with sandwiches!

Table Tennis Is Tops

Today is World Table Tennis Day. It’s a lot easier to fit a ping-pong table in your house, than a tennis court. Table tennis began as a parlour game in Victorian England, and became an Olympic Sport in 19 88. If you don’t have a ping-pong table in your house, use your dining room table instead!

2,013 Explosions of Confetti

Saint Stephen’s School, in Western Australia, wanted to celebrate their 40th anniversary, with a bang. They decided to set a world record, for the most people firing confetti cannons at once. The moment was a success, as 2,013 tubes launched colorful paper into the air simultaneously. I’m sure the cleanup took much longer!

Why Would Anyone Cover That Up?

A couple renting a home in England, were surprised to find someone lurking behind a panel, in their bathroom. It was a stone gargoyle, or grotesque, from medieval times. The carved face was likely part of a 14th century drainage system. The couple is excited to explore the house, for other hidden features.

Showers Passing Over

April showers bring May flowers. But what do May flowers bring? Pilgrims, haha. Celebrate April Showers Day, by playing in the rain. Tonight is also the beginning of Passover, celebrated this week by Jews. The Feast of Unleavened Bread commemorates when the Israelites were freed from slavery, more than 3000 years ago.

Be Nice to Mother Earth

54 years ago, on April 22nd 1970, Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson created Earth Day. He wanted people to focus on the environment, air and water pollution. It grew into a global movement, bringing the world together to try and keep the Earth clean, prevent global warming, and preserve nature for future generations. Happy Earth Day!
