National Alfred Hitchcock Day
- At the turn of the century when film was being born, so was one of the greatest directors of all time. Known by many as the Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock revolutionized film-making during his expansive fifty-year career. Sadly enough, although extremely influential, Hitchcock would never win a single Academy Award for his outstanding directing ability; however, Alfred Hitchcock's ideas and techniques changed film-making during its most pivotal years and for generations to come.

Girl Scout Day (1912)
- Girl Scout Day recognizes and celebrates the Girls Scouts of America. On March 12, 1912, Juliette Gordon Low started the first Girl Scout group in Savannah Georgia with 18 girls. The Girls Scouts became a national organization and was chartered by the U.S. Congress on March 16, 1950. Today, there are millions of girls involved with Girl Scouts.

National Baked Scallops Day
- Scallops are one of the most popular shellfish in the world. These meaty mollusks are low in fat and are delicious sauteed, deep-fried, or baked! Baking them leaves out a lot of the butter and fat which otherwise goes into cooking this lean, white seafood. Put scallops on the menu and in the oven for National Baked Scallops Day!.

National Plant a Flower Day
- A day to get a little dirt under your fingernails. Take a few minutes to plant a flower today. Gardening is a great hobby. It's enjoyed by millions of people, old and young alike. It is a hobby that virtually everyone can participate in, regardless of age, and health. Senior citizens love it, as they can garden long after they give up other hobbies and sports.
