The Titanic Sinks (1912)
- Shortly before midnight on April 14, 1912, the ship collided with an iceberg causing the ship to sink at 2:20 AM on April 15th.

Ex Spouse Day
- While some might scoff at celebrating a failed marriage, some ex-spouses continue to play an integral role in each others lives. This is the perfect opportunity to finally let go of all the hurt and anger and forgive your ex once and for all. Everyone benefits when parents can work together and get along.

International Moment of Laughter Day
- When was the last time you gave yourself permission to laugh out loud in public? Well, get ready to do it again, because April 14th has been set aside to do just that, according to America's Humorologist Izzy Gesell. To encourage more people to laugh, Izzy invites America and the whole world to join in the fun on April 14th, the planet's International Moment of Laughter Day.

National Reach as High as You Can Day
- Today's the day to stretch for the stars, go for your goals and let you and your family's imagination soar. The sky's the limit!

National Pecan Day (1775)
- We celebrate the day in 1775 when George Washington planted pecan trees in Mount Vernon given to him by Thomas Jefferson. The pecan is really a national treasure since it is the only major tree nut which grows naturally in North America.

Abraham Lincoln Assassinated (1865)
- The assassination of United States President Abraham Lincoln took place on Good Friday, April 14, 1865, as the American Civil War was drawing to a close.

Webster's Dictionary Published (1828)
- On April 14, 1828, Noah Webster published his magnum opus, An American Dictionary of the English Language. Building on his previous effort, A Compendious Dictionary of the English Language, his first truly American dictionary, his newer publication was a complete effort, tracing the origins of some 70,000 of entries across more than 26 languages, including the dead ones of Anglo-Saxon and Sanscrit.

National Look Up At The Sky Day
- A great day to check out what's up in the sky. You never know what might be going on up there in the sky. An asteroid or meteor could be on its way. A solar eclipse could be on display. A flock of geese or birds may be overhead (you may need to duck for cover). Or, clouds may be forming into interesting characters and patterns. Take a few minutes out of your busy day to look up at the sky today.
