International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day
- a day for the dogs. And, that's because there is no one else who can really appreciate the true value of a dog biscuit. They say "Every dog has his day". And, it will definitely be his day,when you give him some tasty dog biscuits. You might appreciate their value in pleasing your dog, as a reward for behavior, or enticing them to do a trick. But, the dog is the recipient of the treat. Celebrate today by giving your dog a few dog biscuits.
National Banana Bread Day
- Banana bread first became a standard feature of American cookbooks with the popularization of baking soda and baking powder in the 1930s (and appears in Pillsbury's 1933 Balanced Recipes cookbook). The first banana bread recipe was thought to have been created by William Swanson. The home baking revival of the 1960s and the simplicity of its recipe led to an explosion in banana bread's popularity. The cookbooks of the 1960s added to its popularity because they commonly listed multiple variations of bread that added fruits and nuts.
- Millions of Americans enjoy playing tennis. In addition to being a good sport, its good exercise, too. If the weather in your area keeps you from playing tennis today, then watching or reading about tennis is a great backup activity.
Curling Is Cool Day
- a day to celebrate, learn, and to play a sport that began in Scotland in the 1500's. Curling is a team sport in which players slide heavy granite stones down a sheet of ice at a circular target area. A curling tournament is known as a bonspiel. Curling has been an official sport in the Winter Olympic Games since 1998, but curling was included in the the inaugural Winter Olympic Games in 1924, but the results were not made official until 2006. Today celebrate this holiday by playing the game or learning about the history and scoring of the game.
National Rationalization Day
- In sociology, rationalization (or rationalisation) is the process where an increasing number of social actions become based on considerations of teleological efficiency or calculation rather than on motivations derived from morality, emotion, custom, or tradition. It is regarded as a central aspect of modernity, manifested especially in Western society; as a behaviour of the capitalist market; of rational administration in the state and bureaucracy; of the extension of modern science; and of the expansion of modern technology.
Tootsie Roll Birthday
- The Tootsie Roll story began in 1896, when Austrian-born Leo Hirshfield opened a tiny candy shop in New York City. Taking full advantage of his confectioner’s background, Hirshfield personally blended, cooked, and peddled a variety of products, including an individually wrapped, oblong, chewy, chocolate candy that quickly became a customer favorite. Sold at a penny apiece and affectionately named after Hirshfield’s five-year old daughter, Clara, whose nickname was “Tootsie,” Tootsie Rolls propelled Hirshfield’s modest corner store into a burgeoning candy enterprise that has evolved in little more than a century into the multinational corporation, Tootsie Roll Industries.
Iwo Jima Day
- Anniversary of the day that the US flag was raised on the Pacific island of Iwo Jima by US Marines. Almost 20,000 American soldiers lost their lives before the island was finally taken from the Japanese on Mar 16, 1945.
