You're probably still reeling from National Peanut Butter Cookie Day. And you're just now getting over National Fly A Kite Day (which, btw, is apparently completely different from Kite Day). And don't even start in on International Picnic Day.

I mean, look: It's either this or National Go Skateboarding Day.
