Most of us think of holidays as one of those few days our employer actually pays us to stay home. We all know the big ones: New Year's, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas. And yes, some employers are a little more generous but most likely you'll have no more than 7 days a year that you consider a holiday. Depending on your religious beliefs you may add a few more to that annual list, and find that you're up to a dozen or so.
For a day to be considered a "National Holiday" it needs to be declared so by Congress. And then of course we have the "commercial holidays" that we all love, which in effect are simply days that have become popular over the years. We all love them, but for some of us that just isn't enough. Organizations, corporation, and even loosely connected groups of people can "declare" a day for any reason they choose. Some of these days catch on and become popular with the general population, some remain only recognized by their creator, and some fizzle out and become a mere memory after only a year or two.
The point is - Every day, somewhere someone is celebrating something.

Happy National Cherry Pie Day ~ February 20

I suspect the reason for Cherry Pie Day at this time of year has something to do with the old story about George Washington chopping down a cherry tree. 

If you do decide to make a home made cherry pie today don't forget the apron and this sweet gadget I found at - Buy Best Electronic Gadgets, Laptop Parts, Computer Components, Cell Phone Accessories!

Pulling out that oven rack will never worry you again. And they are so unique looking people will wonder what they are.  You can't see it, but there is a magnet on the back so they'll stay handy attached right to the stove.

Need a good recipe now? is celebrating "National Cherry Month" so pop over there for some great recipes using cherries.

And it you want the pie but not the work...
