Celebrate these unusual observances in 2013

(Continued)

23: Margaret Wise Brown was born on this day in 1910. Not sure who that is? We're pretty sure you know one of her books, "Goodnight Moon."

JUNE

6: National Yo-Yo Day.

16: Father's Day (see entry for Mother's Day!)

25: It's Leon Day. "Leon" is "Noel" spelled backward. It means that it's only six months till Christmas.

JULY

8: The Liberty Bell cracked while being rung on this day in 1835.

19: Stick Out Your Tongue Day. Just make sure you explain this to whomever you're sticking it out at!

20: Moon Day, marking the 44th anniversary of Neil Armstrong becoming the first person to land on the moon.

AUGUST

1: Respect for Parents Day. This really should be every day, but we know you know that.

11: Play in the Sand Day.

20: World Mosquito Day. We're not sure if this means you should love one or swat one!

SEPTEMBER

5: National Cheese Pizza Day.

19: Talk Like a Pirate Day. Ahoy, matey!

23: Nintendo was founded on this date in 1889. Their first product wasn't the Wii; it was playing cards.

OCTOBER

1: It's Homemade Cookies Day and World Vegetarian Day, so why not make (and eat) oatmeal raisin cookies in honor of both!

15: National Grouch Day. But that doesn't mean you have to be one!

28: The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on this day in 1886.

NOVEMBER

15: Pack Your Mom Lunch Day. Be sure to include something sweet!

17: It's Homemade Bread Day and Take a Hike Day, so pack some sandwiches and hit the trail.

25: Marc Brown was born on this day in 1946, and aardvarks named Arthur everywhere celebrate!

DECEMBER

1: Eat a Red Apple Day. If you prefer yellow apples, we think that's OK.

13: National Cocoa Day. We feel warm and toasty just thinking about it.

31: New Year's Eve. We've made it through another year.
