AprilDon't Go to Work Unless it's Fun Day
-- a holiday birthed from dreamers, free spirits and entrepreneurs. Or maybe it's a bit of spring fever making the responsible worker reconsider sitting at a desk all day and tapping away on a keyboard. If you're truly unhappy with your job, explore why. It may be time to start considering a more satisfying career. Source

Tweed Day
-- Day to consider the cost of political corruption. Birthday of William March Tweed, New York City political boss, whose “Tweed Ring” is said to have stolen $30 million to $200 million from the city. Born at New York, NY, Apr 3, 1823, he died in his cell at New York’s Ludlow Street Jail, Apr 12, 1878. Cartoonist Thomas Nast deserves much credit for Tweed’s arrests and convictions. Source

National Chocolate Mousse Day
-- There is nothing more decadent than to sit back with a dish of chocolate mousse just waiting for our enjoyment. Its light yet delicious character is something to behold and everything to long for. This is a day to indulge in the sinfully wonderful food and thank the French for their creativity. Source

Pony Express Established
-- The early coaches of Wells Fargo consumed twenty days to cross from St. Joseph, Missouri, long considered a great outpost of civilization, to Sacramento. But twenty days to the merchants and bankers of the West Coast seemed an eternity, and so a short time before the beginning of the Civil War, the Pony Express came into existence. Source

National Find-A-Rainbow Day
-- Rainbows are a gift from nature that enthralls all ages and all nationalities. We stare at the wonder of the almost magical colors that rise up from the ground and arch throughout the sky. No wonder we are fascinated with them and chase rainbows. Source

Isle Royale National Park Established
-- Isle Royale National Park was established on 03 April 1940 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The park was designated part of the National Wilderness Preservation System in 1976, under the Wilderness Act, and remains today as an example of primitive America. In fact, over 98% of the land in Isle Royale is designated wilderness. Source

World Party Day
-- World Party Day began as a grassroots effort in 1996 and was one of the first global efforts in a growing number of movements of synchronized human celebration to bring about improved social conditions.World Party Day (also P-Day) is observed yearly on (April 3) through personal and public observances of party-like atmosphere. A basic premises is that the opposite of war is not passive action or peace, but party. Source
