and honor newspaper carriers, teddy bears, grandparents, elephants, Uncle Sam, and skyscrapers on their days. National days are commemorated for cream-filled donuts, butterscotch pudding, cheeseburgers, comic books, chocolate milk shakes, good neighbors, and apple dumplings. And who doesn't want to party on International Talk like a Pirate Day?! Most importantly, say 'thank you' on the 21st, World Gratitude Day. This year I think I'll celebrate Chinese MidAutumn Festival, also called the Moon Festival on the 28th.
