According to the Chase Calendar of Events, today is "Happiness Happens Day." We can all use a little more happiness. Take a break from the serious news and find something beautiful or fun to ease your mind. Pay attention to the good things that happen around you.

Alas, it's also "Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbors’ Porch Night." Have you had coworkers haul in a bushel of zucchini and try to get everyone to take some? Problem is, everyone else has been growing it, too.

So if you find zucchini on your porch tomorrow morning, bake zucchini bread. When you take it to work, just about everyone will be think happiness happened.
