   When you think of July holidays, Independence Day is probably the first that comes to mind. There are a lot of holidays in July; here is a list of observances to celebrate each day this month - and, of course, ideas for clebrating them.

July 1: Zip Code Day - Honor this holiday by memorizing the zip codes for all the neighboring cities.
July 2: I Forgot Day - Today you don't need an excuse; just say, "Sorry - I forgot."

July 3: Compliment Your Mirror Day - Take a good look in the mirror and compliment the person you see on the other side.

July 4: Independence from Meat Day - No, it's not just Independence Day on the 4th of July; it's also Independence from Meat Day!

July 7: Chocolate Day - Finally, it's here! You can eat all the chocolate you want - for the whole day - without the guilt.

July 8: SCUD Day (Savor the Comic, Unplug the Drama) - Sounds like a scuddy holiday.

July 9: Martyrdom of the Bab - I was curious who the Bab was, so I looked it up. No wonder I didn't know what it was; Martyrdom of the Bab is a Baha'i holiday. Silly me.

July 10: Don't Step on a Bee Day - Every day should be don't step on a bee day. I've done it. It hurts.
