8. Cook Something Bold and Pungent Day: With my expertise in cooking, it won’t be hard to come up with something pungent.
Dunce Day: This honors the death of Duns Scotus. He was a medieval scholar and we have him to thank for the dunce cap. I can think of a lot of people who should wear the dance cap on this day.

12. Chicken Soup for the Soul Day: The creators of the popular Chicken Soup series say that this day is “…. a celebration of who you are, where you’ve been, where you’re going, and who you will be thankful to when you get there!”
13. National Indian Pudding Day: This mush-like pudding is made from molasses, cornmeal, milk, butter, eggs, spices, and sometimes apples. Colonists accidentally made this pudding when they craved plum pudding but didn’t have the correct ingredients. Instead they mixed the ingredients they did have and came up with “Indian” pudding.
World Kindness Day: This was the the first day of the first World Kindness Conference. The conference was held in Tokyo in 1998. This day focuses on everyone looking past themselves and reaching out to others. This is also on a bigger scale, including countries.
