HOW I CELEBRATED
I simply walked down the street to the Walgreens on the corner of 8 Mile and Kelly Roads and wished the person working the pharmacy counter there a happy National Pharmacist Day.
HOW OTHERS MIGHT CELEBRATE
If you have to go to a pharmacy, leaving a tip, giving a card, or simply wishing the employees there a happy holiday would work. If you're a doctor, you might buy your pharmacy technicians a cake, same if you manage a store with a pharmacy. If you actually work at a pharmacy, bringing in cards for your co-workers seems like a good idea.
This is another one that seems to be just randomly made up. I checked briefly to see if there were a Saint with connection to medecine, apothecaries, or modern-day pharmacies observed on this day, but there isn't.
UNOFFICIAL THEME SONG
"I Feel Fantastic" by Jonathan Coulton is a song about the over-abundance of prescription drugs in our culture, so it seems like a nice ironic fit.
Other Holidays and observances on this date include:
-Zanzibar Revolution Day in Tanzania
-National Youth Day and Swami Vivekananda's Birthday in India
-Coming-of-Age Day in Japan (2nd Monday)
-Work Harder Day

-Catholic Feast Days for Benedict Biscop and St. Tatiana
