Wikipedia: A bog is a mire that accumulates peat, a deposit of dead plant material—often mosses. It is one of the four main types of wetlands. Other names for bogs include mire, quagmire and muskeg; alkaline mires are called fens.
International Bog Day is celebrated the 4th Sunday of July. Established in Scotland in 1991, Bog Day is celebrated throughout Canada, USA and northern Europe, including Soomaa National Park of Estonia
