According to the National Day Calendar, there are more than 1500 national holidays every year – meaning that there is at least one holiday for every day in the calendar year. All you have to do is choose which holiday(s) you want to celebrate. 

Good morning prodigious password users. Today is Thursday, May 6, 2021. Today is the 126th day of the year, and 239 days remain.

World Password Day

World Password Day is celebrated annually on the first Thursday of May. You don’t need a secret entry code to ascertain seeks to spread awareness that taking care of and protecting your passwords is vital to guarding your internet security.
We use passwords to secure the most private parts of our lives and to help protect our finances, our health records, or maybe just our emails. World Password Day reminds us of the importance of these little crypto-keys and the role they play in making sure we keep track of our passwords. Identity thieves are everywhere, and these are your first digital line of defense.
Passwords have been around as long as people have kept secrets. Though most people today think of them as what we put into the box that follows Username and Email on all those websites, passwords served an important role in espionage and secret societies. When you wanted to make sure that the person you were speaking to was the person sent by your organization, you’d ask them for the password.
To celebrate Password Day, go through your passwords and try to make them stronger. Come up with nonsense phrases you can remember, add spaces, change letters to numbers, etc, to create your password and make it more difficult for hackers to decipher.

National Nurse’s Day

National Nurse’s Day, (aka National RN Recognition Day), is always celebrated annually on May 6th and opens National Nurses Week.  National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, the birth date of Florence Nightingale. This holiday recognizes the contributions and commitments nurses make and is geared toward educating the public about the significant work they perform. In 1981, a resolution was initiated by nurses in New Mexico to have May 6th declared “National Recognition Day for Nurses.”  This proposal was promoted by the ANA (American Nurses Association) Board of Directors and in 1982, with a joint resolution, Congress designated May 6th to be “National Recognition Day for Nurses.”

National No Homework Day

For all of you professional educators out there, National No Homework Day is celebrated annually on the last Friday in March and on May 6th. As you might suspect, this holiday provides an opportunity to give your students a brief reprieve from the normal drudgery of homework.
Most of your students have been working and studying hard all year and Finals are just around the corner, so, I’m sure they will appreciate the gesture. Cut them some slack today and let them enjoy a relaxing evening at home for once. Besides, you can always double down on them later if you feel you must.

International No Diet Day

International No Diet Day is celebrated annually on  May 6th. You don’t need to be a dietician to deduce that this holiday encourages us to appreciate the bodies we have – at least for this one day. This holiday is a good opportunity to reassess and evaluate your weight management goals and perspective and to make certain your efforts to be thin don’t come at a risk to your health.
People come in all shapes and sizes – that’s what makes us unique. Societal pressure often makes people believe that they are lacking in some way if they aren’t “model thin”. This can lead to anorexia, bulimia, and other unhealthy eating disorders.
If you decide that continuing your diet is right for you, then celebrate International No Diet Day by using today to take a one-day “cheat day” from your diet. You can restart your diet again tomorrow.

National Crepes Suzette Day 

National Crepes Suzette Day is celebrated annually on May 6th. You can logically infer from its name that it celebrates that classic dessert – crepes Suzette.
Crepes Suzette is a classic French dessert dish consisting of sweet crêpes and a sauce of butter, sugar, orange juice, orange zest, and an orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier. The dish is typically ignited tableside and, thanks to the flame-inducing liqueur, makes for a dramatic presentation.
You are probably wondering right now: “Who is Suzette, and why does she have a crepe dessert named after her?” Well, apparently, Suzette was a paramour to, then Prince of Wales, and future King Edward VII, son of Queen Victoria. In 1895, Henri Carpentier, Mâitre d’Hotel at the Café de Paris in Monte-Carlo, raised the common crêpe to haute cuisine when he prepared this special recipe at tableside for the aforementioned couple. The Prince liked them so much that he named them after his lady friend and dining companion, Suzette. [I wonder if Edward’s wife, Princess – then later – Queen Alexandra, ever ate them].

With that said, today’s holidays are listed below — so let the festivities begin.
