February 23 is International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. Celebrate accordingly. They say every dog has his day... today, they all get that day at once. Just imagine: dog biscuits without having to do tricks. We should all be so lucky. Who invented International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day? Most likely a human, though I suppose it could have been a very smart dog!
If you're into doggy DIY, you can make your own dog biscuits.
We like Pizza shaped ones :)

Today is National Battery Day
My research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
Most likely, this day was created by a national association or a battery manufacturer.
This is referred to as a "National" day. However, I did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.
Several site have suggested that this day is in honor of Alessandro Volta, Italian physicist and inventor of electric battery, who was born on this day in 1745.

Valentine's day isn't all about roses, candy, and expensive dinners.
It has a historical background too.
Contrary to what some may believe, Valentine's Day wasn't created by greetings card companies just to sell cards and candies. It's actually a church sanctioned holiday, as Pope Gelasius deemed February 14 St. Valentine's Day near 498 A.D.
Shrouded in mystery, the exact origins of the celebration of St. Valentine are somewhat unclear, according to History.com. While the holiday's history is well documented through the years, the saint (or saints) it's named after is up in the air.
It's still unclear exactly who the celebrated saint of love really was, as the Catholic Church acknowledges 3 separate saints named Valentine or Valentinus. All of them were martyrs.

Today is National White Tee-Shirt Day, not to be confused with National Wet Tee-Shirt day :)
Origin of this Holiday
According to the UAW's website, the traditions of the original White Shirt Day is as follows: 1) Everyone must wear a white shirt or blouse 2)Your white shirt must not get dirtier than your boss's shirt 3) Safety and work rules must be followed.
This holiday is referred to as a "National" day- However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate. So enjoy the day and have fun with it.
