Many foods have their own special day, and the humble peanut is no exception. Peanut Cluster Day celebrates all that is delicious and unique about the peanut. Strictly speaking not a nut but in fact a variety of bean, peanuts were originally cultivated from plants native to Paraguay, and have been enjoyed as an addition to cooking or as a tasty snack for centuries.
Whether you prefer your peanut based dishes savoury or sweet, there are plenty of ways to celebrate Peanut Cluster Day. For those with a sweet tooth, try the traditional combination of peanuts smothered in chocolate. These crunchy clusters are perfect as a treat, or try creating small clusters to use when decorating cupcakes and desserts, especially yummy when sprinkled in vanilla ice cream. For something more savoury, salted peanut clusters can’t be beaten for a simple taste sensation that is ideal as a protein rich snack.

Date When Celebrated : Always March 8th
It's Be Nasty Day!
There's naughty days, and nice days, and all sorts of goodie gumdrop days. So, it stands to reason that there will be a few negative type of days. This is one of them.
We hope you do not celebrate this day, and that it is not popular. If you do, please recognize that there is a big difference between being nasty and being cruel. Sending a few harmless Ecards may be a way to celebrate today.

Home offices are more commonplace by the year, and today one in four American households have one. You don’t have to be self-employed or work from home to have a home office; it can be used simply for sorting through bills, finances, documents and all those other fun things that we love saving for a rainy day, and having a designated workspace can make everything run faster and smoother.
Still, as with the kitchen, lounge and pretty much every other room under the roof, the home office can become messy, dusty, cluttered, disorganised and, as a result of this combination, a hindrance to its very purpose. Organize Your Home Office Day counters this chaos by providing the motivation to throw away the trash and shred the unwanted paperwork; recycle those drinks cans and polish the desk; clean the windows, alphabetise your filing system, fill up your stationery reserves, and maybe even get a potted plant to help energise the room even further. You can even have fun while you do it: set yourself a time limit, put on your favourite album and see just how beautiful and work-conducive you can make that room in an hour or two!
And remember, the more organised your home office, the less time you’ll need to spend in there in the long run. What more incentive do you need?

Do you have any friends who have unique names? Take a moment on Unique Names Day to consider the fact that they have to go through life without ever sharing a name with a famous celebrity, being presented with personalised merchandise at fares, zoos and events, and to probably have to spell their name to everybody they ever meet.
Then again, having a unique name is pretty cool, and a great talking point!
