It’s generally believed that the humble pretzel is the oldest of all snack foods, with documented consumption of pretzelsÂ dating back as far as the 7th century AD, where French monks baked salted dough strips shaped like the arms ofÂ children in prayer.
Whether you like yours sweet, salty, covered in chocolate, or flavoredÂ with herbs and spices, Pretzel Day is all about enjoying the humble pretzel in all of its shapes, sizes, flavors and styles.

No horsing around – today is an opportunity for you to be a good ‘neeeiiigh-bor’ on Help a Horse Day!
Horses continue to be both a popular pet as well as serving as hard-working farm animals. In recent years, stories of their neglect and abandonment have continued to rise; as owners have found the cost of looking after them too prohibitive to cope with.
Help a Horse Day is your opportunity to send a donation to an equine care charity of your choice! Or share an apple or carrot with a local horse you know! Or sign your name to a petition demanding better care for these faithful, four-footed friends who have served us so well over the centuries. All they need is a hand (after all, most of them are at least 10 hands high!) to enjoy a better life.

Hug An Australian Day is an annual event that was founded by Thomas and Ruth Roy of the Wellcat.com website.
Though the origins of this event are unclear, Hug An Australian Day has quickly become popular over the last few years, and is celebrated by sending the likes of greeting cards and e-cards to Aussie friends.
Event ideas for Hug An Australian Day include listening to famous Aussie music artists, from The Seekers to Kylie all day long with a can of Foster’s or Castlemaine XXXX, or holding an Aussie movies day – beginning with ‘Crocodile Dundee‘, naturally enough.
Hug An Australian Day shouldn’t just stop with just a hug for Aussies living overseas. They’re bound to be appreciative of a present that reminds them of home, like a toy koala bear or kangaroo for instance – or a DVD of great Aussie cricket moments.
If you really want to celebrate Hug An Australian Day why not plan a trip around it? It is the perfect time to travel to the land down under, especially if you have friends or relatives there that need a good hugging. It could be Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, it doesn’t matter, there’s bound to be Australians to hug wherever you choose. With the timing right before the big holiday season beginning in May, most travel sites will even be offering discounts.
