Global Smurfs Day

-- Global Smurfs Day was a worldwide event held on June 25, 2011 (which was Peyo's birthday) to celebrate the impending release of The Smurfs movie. On that day, people in various cities around the world showed their love for the Smurfs by dressing up in appearance like Smurfs, with blue shirts, white pants, white floppy Smurf hats, and faces all painted blue. One of its participants was Veronique Culliford, the daughter of the original Peyo. Source

National Log Cabin Day

-- remembers a quieter and simpler era, when life was more rugged. Historically most Log cabins were a simple one or 1½-story structures, somewhat impermanent, and less finished or less architecturally sophisticated. A log cabin was usually constructed with round rather than hewn, or hand-worked, logs, and often it was the first generation home building erected quickly for frontier shelter. Source
Read: How to Build and Furnish a Log Cabin, by W. Ben Hunt
-- W. Ben Hunt's classic has earned a reputation as the authentic handbook since it was first published in 1939. Updated in 1974, it remains the only step-by-step guide to building log cabins and log furniture -- pioneer style. There are other manuals on building cabins, but W. Ben Hunt's is the only one to show you how to build and furnish an authentic pioneer cabin-the easy, natural way, using only hand tools and the woods around you. Our ancestors used logs and hand tools to build durable, dry, windproof, and protective dwellings; and they fashioned chairs, tables, branches, and bushes. In this day of power saws, lumberyards, and high prices, it's good to know that you can build in the same way.
