SalmonAwareness events. There are a kazillion of these -- just go to this website, and you'll be taken aback by the sheer abundance.

California Dried Plum Digestive Health Month (that's January). National Boost Self-Esteem Month (that's February).

This month, you should be focusing your awareness on: adoption, AIDS, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, Indian heritage, aviation history, diabetic eye disease, epilepsy, family caregivers, family stories, gluten-free diets, inspirational role models, life-writing, long-term care, lung cancer, the military family, peanut butter, pet cancer, pomegranates, prematurity, roasting, scholarship, vegans. And pecans, if you're in Georgia. It's also national animal shelter appreciation week, radiologic technology week, Dear Santa letter week and national care week.

For next year, hooray, there's a new awareness event, just announced: International Omega-3 Awareness Day, the first of which will be held on March 3, 2010. Read all about it at (I'll tie a knot in my handkerchief.)
