Celebrate these unusual observances in 2013

Happy 2013. We certainly hope it will be a lucky year for you. We know that many of you probably got a calendar for the holidays. It has become a New Year's tradition in KidsPost to highlight some holidays and other special days that kids might be interested in but that probably didn't make the cut as an "official" holiday on your calendar.

JANUARY

7: Old Rock Day. Perhaps today you could start (or add to) a rock collection.

20: Inauguration Day. President Barack Obama will be sworn in to a second term as president. Because the 20th falls on a Sunday, the public ceremony will take place on the 21st on the steps of the Capitol.

23: Measure Your Feet Day. Are both your feet the same size? Bet you never thought to find out!

FEBRUARY

10: Chinese New Year welcomes in the Year of the Snake.

13: Get a Different Name Day. So if you really hate that Mom and Dad named you Buford T. Rex III, today's the day to do something about it.

23: International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. We suspect this is mostly celebrated by dogs.

MARCH

6: Oreo cookies were sold for the first time in 1912. Have a Double Stuf to celebrate.

14: It's Pi Day. Not as in apple or cherry. As in the number: 3.14!

APRIL

3: The first ice cream sundae was invented in New York 120 years ago today.

25: World Penguin Day. It's also Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. We just don't think we should take penguins to work.

30: National Honesty Day. If we're lying, we're dying!

MAY

12: Mother's Day. Yes, this appears on the calendar you received, but we wanted to remind you because it would be really, really bad to forget!

18: It's International Museum Day.
