Hug Your Cat Day
Um, I can't - I'm allergic.  But go ahead and hug yours and someone else's!

Tailors Day
Two things that immediately come to mind when I hear the word tailor.
Here's the first one, for a laugh...

The second one is more serious.  While they aren't called tailors I think of the thousands of people working for next to nothing and in some cases by force to make clothes for developed countries to purchase and wear.  These factories are called sweatshops, a slang term for the kind of environment these people work in. While the majority of underdeveloped countries have the largest number of sweatshops there are still ones in existence in developed nations like the U.S.
Here are 11 facts about sweatshops you and I need to be aware of

Frozen Yogurt Day - or the more popular word for it these days - FroYo Day
How did we get frozen yogurt? 
Back in the day my friend, Elena, and I would go after school and walk around a local middle school track for a few laps and then go to the TCBY shop by our house and eat frozen yogurt.  It's one of my most favorite memories!
