Today is International Pipe-Smoking Day! You can read all about it here.
To quote their purpose:
On this day we will take a breather and celebrate the noble art of pipe-smoking and the noble spirit which pervades the brother/sisterhood of the briar. We will put into practice the time-honored and ancestral traditions of raising our pipes in toast to each other in the evening in unison and, thus, share a bowl together.So, of your so inclined, stop for a few moments this evening and join us in sharing a bowl!
