April 5, 2014: Hooray for tasty food holidays! Today is National Deep Dish Pizza Day, so go out and get yourself a huge, gooey chunk of ‘za. (I personally grew up in a much thinner pizza territory, although not as paper-thin and floppy as some. My preferred pizza is a moderate one.) This is also the 2nd annual International Tabletop Day, so get out there and play a board game, card game, dice game, or any other multi-player tabletop game. There’s probably an event near you!
Today is also International Pillow Fight Day, which is one of my favorite kinds of holidays — it’s not tied to a specific date, but instead to the first Saturday of April. So it’ll constantly bump up against other holidays. Last year, the Pony Express ponies had a pillow fight. Next year, who knows? (Who am I kidding? I know. I looked it up; the first Saturday of April in 2015 is the 4th, so perhaps the pillow fighters will be rats. Or citrus fruits. Or school librarians. I have 364 days to think about it.)
