February ends with multiple choices

Thursday, February 28 is marked, in some circles, as Rare Disease Day. Our crack research staff assures us that this is not a joke; rather, it is an opportunity for the less well-known diseases to have their moment in the sun -- and make their claims for scarce research dollars. (Here is the link to the Rare Disease USA website.)

But Thursday is also National Tooth Fairy Day. We're not sure why. Our research staff could find no evidence of any additional bounty paid to little kids who lose a tooth in time for this allegedly big day.

Thursday is also National Public Sleeping Day. Presumably if you're caught snoring during your boss's Powerpoint presentation Thursday, it will avail you not to claim that you were just celebrating this microminiholidayette -- but you're free to try.

At your own risk.

Several Arab states (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Bahrain, UAE, and Oman) will celebrate Teachers' Day on Thursday (Teachers' Day is celebrated in America in May; the UN observance is October 5).

There are an abundance of food microminiholidayettes on Thursday as well. By themselves, National Chili Day, National Chocolate Souffle Day, or National Pancake Day might be swell ideas -- but in combination?

And, no, Friday will not be National Bromo Day.
