According to this list of Bizarre American Holidays...

I was born on Penny Day.

What'd you get?

...... granted, I'm really starting to doubt the authenticity of the list after seeing "National Pizza With The Works Except Anchovies Day", " Festival Of Extraterrestrial Abductions Day" and "More Herbs, Less Salt Day"

Sea Serpent Day for me.

[Jess]: I'm really starting to doubt the authenticity of the list

Party pooper. You're just jealous you didn't get one of the cool days.

Mine is on "Lame Duck Day". Given that, I wonder if it's a coincidence that I share my birthday with Ronald Reagan ...

I get International Panic Day. Other than that, I share with Father's Day every so often.

National Pink Day for me ... I wonder if it refers to the colour or the Singer?
If the former, it's quite appropriate for me as Pink is one of my favourite colours.

Penny Day.

Did not find anything about "Penny Day" on Wiki?
- but did find this: "Java 1.0a was made available for download in 1994, but the first public release of Java and the HotJava web browser came on May 23, 1995, at the SunWorld conference."

International Tuba Day, Paste Up Day, and (as if these aren't enough) National Roast Leg of Lamb Day!
