Persons Day
- A day to commemorate the anniversary of the 1929 ruling that declared women to be persons in Canada. Prior to this ruling English common law prevailed (Women are persons in matters of pains and penalties, but are not persons in matters of rights and privileges).

No Beard Day
- Today is the day those with beards shave it off for a nice smooth clean shave. Let your family and friends see what you really look like underneath all that face hair.

Scary Black Cat Day
- A black cat is associated with evil. The Celts would sometimes sacrifice a cat in a bonfire during their festival. Witches were believed to be shape shifters and would most often take the form of cats. Sometimes they believed that cats were reincarnated witches.

Alaska Day

Support Your Local Chamber of Commerce

Roseanne TV Premiere
- This comedy showed the blue-collar Conner family trying to make ends meet. Rosanne played wise-cracking Roseanne Conner, John Goodman played her husband, Dan, and Laurie Metcalf played her sister, Jackie.

World Menopause Day
- calls on every nation to make menopausal health a principal issue in their research and public health agendas in order to help women prevent unpleasant symptoms that can affect productivity and quality of life, as well as reduce rates of osteoporosis, heart disease, colon cancer and other aging- and hormone-related diseases.

Missouri Day
