Last weekend of the month and days before Independence Day.  What lesser-known holidays can guide your actions?

Saturday, June 29th:

Hug Holiday

Hug people and pets and trees to your heart's content!  Good for your health and spirit, hugs should be a recommended daily requirement.

National Guy Day

Hug those special guys in your life.

International Mud Day

Here's a novel way to hug that special guy.  In the Mud!  Is mud still good for the skin?  Is Mud Wrestling still a sport?

National Camera Day

As long as you are hugging a guy in the mud, snap a pic.  With smartphones these days, everybody's a photographer and everybody's a filmmaker.  But if a muddy mess is not a good photo subject, how about...

International Day of the Tropics

Now we're talking.  Sun, sand and fruity drinks.  Throw on your Hawaiian shirt or bikini.

Sunday, June 30th:

National Meteor Watch Day

International Asteroid Day

Hmm, y'know, maybe staying in the tropical frame of mind is not a good idea.  Suddenly I'm hearing the song by R.E.M.: "It's the End of the World as We Know It (and I Feel Fine)"

Maybe we need to get away.  Here's a good way to do it...

National Corvette Day

If you have to flee, go in style.  What is the top speed in a Vette?  140 MPH?  And where should you drive?  Here's a suggestion...

Log Cabin Day

The tropics will only be washed out anyway by the tidal waves caused by the asteroid impact.  You want elevation, and a lot of it.  Way to go, Prepper.

Social Media Day

Post pictures of the scenic, rustic beauty with the caption "Wish you were here."

Well, maybe not.  If you share it, they will come.

QUIZ: Can You Identify the Iconic '80s Film From Just a Single Freeze-Frame?

Embark on a journey through '80s nostalgia with kids (and aliens) on bikes, and teens dodging principles (and responsibilities). We've put the proverbial pause on some of the decade's most iconic flicks, and now it's your mission to name them all.
