-- The date of this unofficial holiday commemorates the day in 1964 when Mariner 4, a robotic interplanetary probe was launched by NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). In the 8 months it was on its mission, the Mariner 4 became the first spacecraft to successfully fly by Mars. It also gave the world the first close-up images of Mars. Since then several exploratory missions have been sent to Mars to gather data about the planet. Source

Mars Papercrafts |

Make Your Own Head Day
-- Get out your pens, pencils, and other art supplies and let your imagination run wild. It can look as much or as little like your own head as you choose. Paper mache, plasticine, mashed potatoes, jello - make it out of whatever you have on hand! It could also mean make up your own mind, take some time for self-reflection, or just be yourself.

Red Planet Day
-- You can see the planet, weather permitting, as Mars is one of the five planets that can be viewed without an optical aid during November, according to EarthSky. Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn will also be visible.

French Toast Day
-- Also called Nun's toast, Poor Knights of Windsor and Pain Perdu, French toast has Roman origins. The original recipe was also called Pain a la Romaine, French for Roman bread. In ancient and medieval times, it was made with expensive white bread after the crusts were removed. Instead of syrup, the ancient Romans used honey.
