On this day, the sky is carefully watched by those who are expecting or wishing to be abducted by an alien life form. If that's too strange for you, you can celebrate this holiday instead by watching movies about UFOs and aliens.

Atheist Pride Day

It’s a simple and powerful way to show your atheist pride.

All you have to do is change your Facebook profile picture to the following:

scarletletter_out

And change your status to something like “I am an atheist” (or whatever).

That’s it!

For most of us, it’s a chance to show some atheist pride. For others, maybe it’s a way to come out to your friends.

It’s certainly not about antagonism. Here’s what Neil Moakley — an organizer of the event — writes about the event in an email:

… we hold the hope that some of the Facebook users out there with ill-informed impressions of the atheist community will see their friends list colored scarlet for one day, and maybe begin to realize that atheists are more diverse than our stereotype, and that we are often in fact productive, caring, ethical people that believers already interact with every day.

Bed-in For Peace Day

Those old enough to remember may recall this is the day in 1969 that John & Yoko (if you need last names, you are too young) started their honeymoon promoting world peace from the bedroom in Amsterdam

International Astrology Day

International Astrology Day was founded by the Association For Astrological Networking (AFAN) in 1993, an outgrowth of the "Astrology Awareness Weekends" which AFAN had sponsored for several years previously. The goals of the new holiday were to expand networking opportunities among the astrological community, to direct media attention to positive aspects of astrology, and to help raise funds for local astrological groups and for AFAN's legal, media, and other networking projects.

International Astrology Day (IAD) is an annual observance/holiday celebrated by astrologers and astrology enthusiasts. It is held on the spring equinox, the day the Sun enters Aries, which is the first sign of the Tropical Zodiac, and has long been considered the astrological new year. This date was selected by a vote of AFAN Networkers when declaring the new holiday. In observance of IAD AFAN co-ordinates astrological lectures and events around the world. Local astrology groups also participate, often in co-ordination with AFAN. For anyone wanting to publicize their International Astrology Day event, or to find out about local events there is also a frequently updated, online list of IAD Events for 2013.

Kick Butts Day

Thank you for making this year’s Kick Butts Day the biggest in history! There are over 1,200 events happening across the country and on military bases around the world, which means THOUSANDS of youth are standing out, speaking up and seizing control against Big Tobacco. Our work doesn’t end today. Big Tobacco spends nearly $1 million an hour marketing its products. Take a stand every day and be a year-round tobacco control advocate

National Jump Out! Day

the first day of spring – is the day for all to jump-start their way into a more active lifestyle by gathering friends and family and seeing how many times in a row each person can jump without stopping. Any kind of jump will do, from a simple hop to a Double Dutch or Criss-Cross step. Or, they can jump into another activity that pumps up the heart, like biking, skating, or playing tag – the idea is to get off the couch and on the road to good health.

Ostara

 

The word Ostara is just one of the names applied to the celebration of the spring equinox on March 21. The Venerable Bede said the origin of the word is actually from Eostre, a Germanic goddess of spring. Of course, it's also the same time as the Christian Easter celebration, and in the Jewish faith, Passover takes place as well. For early Pagans in the Germanic countries, this was a time to celebrate planting and the new crop season. Typically, the Celtic peoples did not celebrate Ostara as a holiday, although they were in tune with the changing of the seasons.
