Holidays for today

Listenting to the news I discovered that today was "No Diet Day" and "Crepe Suzette Day." Curious, I looked up holidays on google and discovered that today has some other themes:

Childhood Depression Awareness Day
National Teacher Day
No Homework Day
Birthday - Sigmund Freud (physician)
I'd like to thank Sigmund personally, not for p*nis envy, but for starting to think about the mind. And I'd like to thank all my teachers!

Crepes Suzette (from the Food Network)

Crepes Suzette
5 navel oranges, juiced (about 1 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier (optional)
6 navel oranges, peeled and sectioned
1 orange, zested
1/2 cup grenadine
Basic Dessert Crepes, recipe follows
Vanilla ice cream
In a large skillet over high heat, bring the orange juice to a boil. Add the sugar, reduce to medium heat and simmer for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and add the orange liqueur and orange sections. Set aside.
In a pot, combine the orange zest and grenadine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 2 minutes. Set aside.
Working in batches, gently place a crepe into the pan holding the orange juice and orange sections. Leave for 1 minute to absorb some juice.
Using a narrow spatula, remove the crepe to a warm serving plate. Roll the crepe into a cylinder. Spoon on some orange sections. Using a fork, pick some orange zest from the grenadine syrup and distribute it over the crepe. Top with vanilla ice cream and serve immediately
