Stress Awareness Day

We have another tax-related microminiholidayette for you on Tuesday, April 16, namely, Stress Awareness Day, established on the theory that you may be just a teensy bit stressed out after you've finished rendering unto Caesar.

Usual Suspect suggests that Tuesday will be National Wear Your Pajamas To Work Day, although that sounded to us at first a little like someone trying to talk someone into something. On the other hand, Usual Suspect suggests that this microminiholidayette "was created to help relieve stress after income taxes are due." So there is a possible connection between Stress Awareness Day and Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day. And there is a National Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day website. However, if you do decide to wear your PJ's to work Tuesday, The Blog of Days will not be responsible for any job-related consequences.

The American Library Association would like you to remember that we are in the midst of American Library Week. Depending on who you talk to, Tuesday may even be American Library Day, but we could not confirm that on the ALA website.

And there's another baseball anniversary Tuesday, and not a happy one for those of us who live and die with the Chicago White Sox: On April 16, 1940, Future Hall of Famer Bob Feller pitched an Opening Day no hitter against the Pale Hose, the only Opening Day no-no ever. Feller's Cleveland Indians did not give him a whole heck of a lot of run support either: The final was 1 - 0.

Tuesday will also be National Eggs Benedict Day, and that's nice if you like that sort of thing.

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI (born Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger on April 16, 1927 in Marktl, Germany) turns 86 on April 16.

The Blog of Days knows of no possible connection between these last two items.
