NUD is the international day when all Facebook users shall protect the sacred nature of friendship by cutting out any friend fat on their pages occupied by people who are not truly their friends. Get ready to unfriend!

National Baklava Day
- for enjoying the sickly sweet dessert called Baklava. A popular sweet pastry found in many cuisines of the Middle East and the Balkans, made of chopped nuts layered with phyllo pastry. So call up all your friends and family and get ready to share this treat with everyone.

Homemade Bread Day
- A day for the family to remember and enjoy the making, baking, and eating of nutritious homemade bread.

National Take A Hike Day
- Walking, and hiking is an excellent way to get exercise and get into shape. Hikes are distinguished from walks, since they are taken in the woods, hills, mountains, or somewhere else in a natural setting. Hikes not only give you exercise, but they also provide scenic sites and vistas, good for relaxation of the mind and soul.

International Student Day (1939)
- The date commemorates the anniversary of the 1939 Nazi storming of the University of Prague after demonstrations against the killing of Jan Opletal and worker VÑclav SedlÑček as well as against the occupation of Czechoslovakia, and the execution of nine student leaders, over 1,200 students sent to concentration camps, and the closure of all Czech universities and colleges. Due to this, 17 November was chosen as International Students' Day.

World Peace Day/International Day of Peace (1997)
- encourages us to be kind to others, and teach others to be peaceful. Please do your part to promote peace on this day. If we all act on this issue, we theoretically could make war and strife obsolete.

National Farm Joke Day
- A great day to tell farmer jokes, relating to those who work on the farm, those living near farms, and jokes about the daily routines that come with farming.
