Special occasions from the obscure to the bizarre With 365 days, 52 weeks and 12 months in a year, it would seem that any cause could have the opportunity to highlight its concerns. But with so many things to worry about, odd reasons to celebrate and obscure notions to become aware of, the calendar offers a dizzying array of occasions. Here are some of our faves for spicing up 2008.
