- You celebrate this day by lying, of course. Not that I encourage lying, so try to keep the lies small and comical. Get some lying out of your system now though, because in a few weeks it’s National Honesty Day.

International Day for Landmine Awareness and Assistance
- Twenty-one countries hosted special events to mark the International Day for Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action on or around April 4, resulting in press coverage in 34 countries and drawing attention to the plight of survivors and the gradual reduction in new casualties since the anti-personnel mine-ban treaty entered into force in 1999.

- Did you know? The average person will consume 10,866 carrots in a lifetime. Carrots are not always orange and can also be found in purple, white, red or yellow.
