Image: The Good Good Pig: The Extraordinary Life of Christopher Hogwood | Paperback: 245 pages | by Sy Montgomery (Author). Publisher: Ballantine Books; Reprint edition (April 17, 2007)National Pig Day
-- Recognizes and gives thanks to domesticated pigs. For some unknown reason, big, pot-bellied pigs seen in zoos, are often the symbol of the day. Pigs are clever and intelligent animals. But, most people are unaware of this high level of intelligence. They can be taught to do tricks. Some people even keep them as pets. Today is a day to give pigs the respect they deserve.

Read: The Good Good Pig: The Extraordinary Life of Christopher Hogwood
-- A naturalist who spent months at a time living on her own among wild creatures in remote jungles, Sy Montgomery had always felt more comfortable with animals than with people. So she gladly opened her heart to a sick piglet who had been crowded away from nourishing meals by his stronger siblings. Yet Sy had no inkling this piglet, later named Christopher Hogwood, would not only survive but flourish – and she soon found herself engaged with her small-town community in ways she had never dreamed possible. Unexpectedly, Christopher provided this peripatetic traveler with something she had sought all her life: an anchor (eventually weighing 750 pounds) to family and home.

National Peanut Butter Lover's Day
- Not just about the love of peanut butter, but it's all about the people who love peanut butter too! If you are an American, you most likely love peanut butter because you most likely grew up eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as a kid. So for this holiday find as many recipes as you can using peanut butter and enjoy each and every peanut butter bite.

Beer Day (Iceland/1989)
- This event began on March 1, 1989, when a 75-year prohibition of beer was lifted. Features celebrations in pubs and restaurants all over Reykjavik.

Share a Smile Day
- No one needs a smile as much as a person who fails to give one. Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. Mother Teresa. Go smile at a stranger today!

Plan a Solo Vacation Day
- Traveling alone is a great way to explore a new city or town, take in some new sights and enjoy some new experiences. However, planning a solo vacation does require a little more work than a group or couples trip. Look beyond the regular scope of activities for options that really resonate with you and will help you make the most of your trip.

K-Mart's Birthday (1962)
- Under the leadership of executive Harry B. Cunningham, S.S. Kresge Corp. opened the first Kmart store on March 1, 1962, in Garden City, Michigan, just a few months before the first Wal-Mart opened. This store is still in operation to this day. A total of eighteen Kmart stores opened the same year. Kmart Foods, a now-defunct chain of Kmart supermarkets, opened in the same decade.

Refired, Not Retired Day
- Are you thinking about retiring, maybe in the next five years? Or, have you already retired? Are you a baby boomer or close to being one? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you definitely need to make yourself part of the ReFIRED, not retired, generation. What's more, you're a charter member of the ReFIRED generation.

Peace Corps Birthday (1961)
- President John F. Kennedy signed an executive order officially establishing the Peace Corps on this date in 1961. The Peace Corps has sent more than 170,000 volunteers to 136 countries to help people help themselves. The volunteers assist in projects such as health, education, water sanitation, agriculture, nutrition, and forestry.

Asiatic Fleet Memorial Day (1822)
- The United States Navy's presence in the Far East dates to 1822. The Asiatic Fleet was formed in 1902, reestablished in 1910, and continued to serve into 1942. Through years of unrest and disturbance, the Fleet protected American lives and interests along the China coast and the Yangtze River, bearing responsibilities which were as much diplomatic as Naval. The Fleet also assisted civilian areas devastated by the forces of nature and by internal warfare.

National Horse Protection Day
- A day to raise awareness through public education about the plight of horses in America — the abuse, neglect, homelessness, and slaughter. This day also encourages adoption events around the nation to help unwanted horses find a forever home.

Lindbergh Kidnapping (1932)
- Twenty-month-old Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr, the son of Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, was kidnapped from their home at Hopewell, NJ about 9:00 PM on March 1, 1932. Even though the Lindberghs paid a $50,000 ransom, their child's body was found in a wooded area less than five miles from the family home on May 12, 1932. Bruno Richard Hauptmann was charged with murder and kidnapping. He was executed in the electric chair on April 3, 1936. As a result of the kidnapping and murder, the Crime Control Act was passed on May 18, 1934, authorizing the death penalty for kidnappers who take their victims across state lines.
