AprilNational Walk to Work Day
- held the first Friday of April in the USA, beginning in 2004. The day is promoted by Prevention magazine and endorsed by the US Department of Health and Human Services and the American Podiatric Medical Association. Source

Plan Your Epitaph Day
- Dedicated to the proposition that a forgettable gravestone is a fate worse than death. Because, if you do nothing, someone else will put your name and dates on your gravestone, period. If you are terribly unlucky, they'll add something like "Dearly missed" or "Beloved Cousin" or maybe even worse. Source

Sorry Charlie Day

- a day to reflect on all the times we have been rejected in our lives and how we have survived. It happens to everyone. The important thing to remember is how you have "bounced" back and what you have learned from all those rejections. If you know someone who has recently been rejected, you can help them with your wisdom and experience. Source
