Angela had to be at school at 6:45 am and was not happy about it. This week is AMI...it's earlier this year than last year. The kids have to practice marching and drilling to make sure they're ready for Thursday. I'm helping with the luncheon and will hopefully get a few photos.
So...what are we celebrating today....
1). National Popcorn Day: Yum!!! I will have to celebrate this one. Strangely, National Popcorn Day is in January, yet National Popcorn Month is October. According to tradition, it is celebrated on January 19th each year, and there is some suggestion that Popcorn Day may, at one point, have been tied to the Superbowl. Make a bowl (with LOTS of butter) today!
2). Tin Can Day: This holiday celebrates the birth of the tin can. According to Wikipedia, The tin can was patented in 1810 by British merchant Peter Durand, based on experimental food preservation work in glass containers by the French inventor Nicholas Appert the year before. Durand did not pursue food canning himself, but, in 1812, sold his patent to two Englishmen, Bryan Donkin and John Hall, who set up a commercial canning factory, and by 1813 were producing their first canned goods for the British Army.
It's a light holiday day, and celebrating these should be easy. My family thinks popcorn is lunch or dinner. If you do find something else to celebrate, just post it below. Have a great Saturday!
