Electric Light Birthday 1879
- Contrary to popular belief, Thomas Edison didn't "invent" the lightbulb, but rather he improved upon a 50-year-old idea. In 1879, using lower current electricity, a small carbonized filament, and an improved vacuum inside the globe, he was able to produce a reliable, long-lasting source of light.

Garbanzo Bean Day
- This is the perfect day for us to celebrate the wonderful benefits of the Garbanzo bean.

Babbling Day
- This isn't a day to remain silent. Tell everyone you know about this special day.
You know them when you hear them. They're talking gibberish. They never stop talking. They babble on and on. They can turn a simple one-sentence statement into an endless dissertation.

National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day
- Celebrates a delicious Fall dessert. In October, pumpkins are literally glowing. So, why not put two of your favorites together.....pumpkins and cheesecake!? They make a great dessert. They are both nutritious and healthy.

Vietnam War Protesters Storm Pentagon
- Some 250 protesters were arrested when thousands of the 50,000 participants in a rally against the Vietnam War at Washington, DC, crossed the Potomac River and stormed the Pentagon. No shots were fired, but many demonstrators were struck with nightsticks and rifle butts.

Toy Camera Day
- Once upon a time, not too long ago, Tomy (yes, an actual toy manufacturer) made a toy camera - the Tolne. Because of the small production run, they became a bit of a legend, and extremely difficult to find.

Woolly Worm Festival
- Wooly bear caterpillars race up three-foot-long strings. The overall winner has the honor of predicting the severity of the coming winter.
