It's Friday the 13th. In fact, it is the only Friday the 13th in 2008. That means today is also Blame Someone Else Day, which is celebrated on the first Friday the 13th of each calendar year. Forget about superstitions related to the dreaded 13th day of a month, which happens to fall on a Friday. Just blame everyone else for your problems. (Hey, some people make a habit of doing that EVERY day!!)
Ever had a rag doll? Those two favorites - Raggedy Ann and Andy - are celebrated today. Created by cartoonist and author Johnny Gruelle, these two were more than dolls - they were characters that sprang to life in his stories. A celebration honoring the author and his two creations is held in Gruelle's home town each summer. Separate myth from reality at RaggedyLand.
Those dads who work from the confines of their homes - today is your day. Celebrate Work @ Home Father's Day.
