Cat in the Hat Day
- a day where you just want to snuggle up and read a good book or watch an old movie, drinking a cup of hot tea and having a bowl of soup for lunch. It’s a day to just be, not concerning yourself with fixing anything, a day without concern. I love days like that, lazy days, days where the mind can take a rest.
Old Stuff Day
- Today is not a day to do the same old stuff. Rather, it's a time to recognize the boring nature of your daily routine, and make some exciting changes. Find new and different activities, projects, and hobbies. Attend an event. Do something, anything, different. You will be glad that you did!
National Banana Cream Pie Day
- Banana cream pie is a rich dessert that is perfect for any occasion. Its custard filling is made from eggs, milk, cream, and flour. Another thing to love about banana cream pies is their graham cracker or pastry dough crust. In a 1951 survey conducted by the United States armed services, banana cream pie was ranked the soldier's favorite dessert!
Silly Putty Birthday
- The venerable goo is a company dream come true. With little advertising, manufacturer Binney & Smith has churned out more than 300 million units - roughly the equivalent of 4,500 tons of the stretchy stuff which would be enough to build a life-size replica of the Goodyear Blimp.
Highway Numbers Introduced
- A joint board of state and federal highway officials created the first system of interstate highway numbering in the US in 1925. Standardized road signs identifying the routes were also introduced. Later the system would be improved with the use of odd and even numbers that distinguish between north-south and east-west routes, respectively.
Dr. Seuss's Birthday
- Theodor Seuss Geisel, creator of The Cat in the Hat and How the Grinch Stole Christmas, was born at Springfield, MA. Known to children and parents as Dr. Seuss, his books have sold more than 200 million copies and have been translated into 20 languages. His career began with And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, which was turned down by 27 publishing houses before being published by Vanguard Press.
NEA's Read Across America Day
- a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2—Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books, and you can too!
