Frank Zappa Day. Sadly, I think the nuance (like most things) is lost on Jesse.
While those two get out the aluminum foil, Daria will instead be celebrating Book Lover's Day by--what else?--reading a book. I might recommend Thoreau's Walden, which was published on this day in 1854. Did you know he was Jane Fonda's father in real life, too?
