Eh. Anyway, check out the always enlightening Wikipedia for more information about this stellar day. It's how I discovered that the famed American poet Ogden Nash actually composed verse about today's date. The poem is titled, oddly enough, "Lines in Praise of a Date Made Praiseworthy Solely By Something Very Nice That Happened to It:"
Lines in Praise of a Date Made Praiseworthy Solely by Something Very Nice That Happened to It
As through the calendar I delve
I pause to rejoice in April twelve.
Yea, be I in sickness or be I in health
My favorite date is April twealth.
It comes upon us, as a rule,
Eleven days after April fool,
And eighteen days ahead of May Day
When spring is generally in its heyday.
Down in New Mexico the chapparal
Is doing nicely by the twelfth of Apparal,
And Bay State towns such as Lowell and Pepperell
Begin to bloom on the twelfth of Epperell.
But regardless of the matter of weather,
There isn't any question whether.
Shall we have such a day as the twelfth of Abriel.
