July 25th is Lumberjack Day

Monty Python famously sang the Lumberjack Song and a rendition of this would be appropriate for Lumberjack Day. The history of this celebration dates back to the mid-2000s when Marianne Ways and Colleen AF Venable decided it was time to honor this venerable profession. Venable herself worked as a lumberjack although she has admitted that the original idea for the day was conceived as an excuse to go out and eat pancakes and waffles with friends.

Lumberjack Day has caught on though and is now celebrated by many. Anyone that wants to join in can organize a party for friends and family where the idea is for everyone to dress up in the clichΓ© lumberjack style of plaid shirts, boots, suspenders, and beards. Other ideas for how to enjoy the day can be found on the official website, where you can also learn about lumberjack jargon, jokes, drinks, and recipes

July 25th is Video Games Day

The U.S. National Video Game Team was founded on July 25, 1983 in Ottumwa, Iowa, USA by Walter Day and the Twin Galaxies Intergalactic Scoreboard.

July 25th is System Administrator Appreciation Day

System Administrator Appreciation Day, also known as Sysadmin Day, SysAdminDay, SAD or SAAD, is an annual event created by system administrator Ted Kekatos. The event exists to show appreciation for the work of sysadmins and other IT workers. It is celebrated on the last Friday in July.

The first System Administrator Appreciation Day was celebrated on July 28, 2000. Kekatos was inspired to create the special day by a Hewlett-Packard magazine advertisement in which a system administrator is presented with flowers and fruit-baskets by grateful co-workers as thanks for installing new printers. Kekatos had just installed several of the same model printer at his workplace.[1]

The official SysAdmin Day website includes many suggestions for the proper observation of the holiday. Most common is cake and ice cream.

Many geek and Internet culture businesses, such as ThinkGeek and CafePress, also honor the holiday with special product offerings and contests. Various filk songs have been written to commemorate the day.[2][3][4] The songs have reached a level of popularity where they are also covered by other performers.

Attempts to have Hallmark Cards recognize the holiday as a Hallmark Holiday have yet to be realized. Many e-card websites already have special SysAdminDay cards available. 

The holiday has been recognized and promoted by many IT professional organizations, the League of Professional System Administrators and SAGE/USENIX.

Swans and tigers and bears, oh my! Animals, and not just horses, are a popular theme for merry-go-rounds and carousels. More than simple child's play, the carousel is part of our cultural history. Some carousels are considered National Historic Landmarks. National Merry-Go-Round Day is a day to celebrate the simple carousel, found on boardwalks, museums and fairs around the United States. William Schneider of Davenport, Iowa patented the modern carousel on July 25, 1871.
