Not what you think in this thread, unless you were thinking of dates on the calendar.

Every Feb. 13th, I fondly recall the first day of one of the best times in my life: what I call The Sojourn, a 16,000+ mile venture across the USA (well, half the country, that is). I have several dates I either look forward to or dread their approaching times over the calendar year (anybody have cool memories of Feb. 29th events :everyfouryears: ?), aside from the standard holidays or birthdays...

Jan. 28th (anniversary of the shuttle Challenger disaster, a dozen years later my own event too)
Feb. 1st (another shuttle explosion :cry: )
Feb. 13th (see above)
Mar. 15th (Ides of March references)
Apr. 4th (U2's song "Pride" reminds me of why)
Apr. 30th (:dead: )
Jun. 6th (anniversary of D-Day, also my paternal grandma's birthdate)
Jul. 20th ("that's one small step..." )
Sep. 1st (another World War began)
Sep. 11th (I think we all know this one :sad: )
Oct. 23rd (several famous birthdates :rolleyes: )
Nov. 11th ("the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month..." )
Dec. 7th ("a day which will live in infamy..." )

Anyone else have such days, without getting too personal?
