- The Great Chicago fire sparked major efforts in fire prevention. Forty years later, the Fire Marshall's Association of North America (FMANA) held the first Fire Prevention Day. In 1920, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Fire Prevention Week, noting in the previous year some 15,000 lives were lost to fire in the United States. In Canada, the first National Fire Prevention Day proclamation was issued by the Governor-General in 1919.

Leif Erikson Day
- honoring Leif Ericson, who brought the first Europeans known to have set foot on North American soil, and the contributions of Scandinavian peoples to American society.

National Pro-Life Cupcake Day
- one in three children will never celebrate their first birthday due to abortion. We simply don't think it's fair so many children don't ever get to have a birthday party. So we thought we would schedule a day to remember the children, who never get to blow out the candles, unwrap their gifts and eat some cake.
