Look Up At The Sky Day
- a fun day to check out what's up there. 'Ya never know what might be going on up there. An asteroid or meteor may be on it's way. A solar eclipse could be on display. A flock of geese or birds may be over head (you may need to duck for cover). Or, the clouds may be forming into interesting characters and patterns. Take a few minutes out from your busy day to look up at the sky today. If nothing else, the break from the routine will be relaxing. Source
National Licorice Day
- Licorice comes from the root of the Glycyrrhiza glabra plant. The history of licorice dates back to ancient times.

Licorice was found in the tomb of King Tut, and Alexander the Great's army reportedly consumed licorice. Today, it is primarily used in candies and consumed for enjoyment. Source
