I have to work again today. The time goes very quickly though, as I have kids nonstop for 4 1/2 hours. Their are good kids but a few are just off in their own world. This week will be busy, as I'm getting ready to go to German Convention with Angela's German Class/Club. I'm hoping to take lots of photos, but I'll probably be out of touch all day Friday and Saturday.
So...what are we celebrating....
1). Thomas Crapper Day: Yes, that's right....we are celebrating the man behind the porcelain throne. It has often been claimed in popular culture that the slang term for human bodily waste, "crap", originated with Thomas Crapper because of his association with lavatories. The most common version of this story is that American servicemen stationed in England during World War I saw his name on cisterns and used it as army slang, i.e. "I'm going to the crapper". Sounds good to me! The reason this date was chosen, is it's the Thomas Crapper died on Jan 27, 1910.
2). Chocolate Cake Day: This holiday isÂ a chocolate lover's delight, and a day to eat cake. Why this a day to "bake your chocolate cake....and eat it, too!" Oh, I'll definitely celebrate this one, as I do love chocolate cake....I'll hopefully make some gluten free chocolate cupcakes. So, go bake a chocolate cake.....decorate a chocolate cake....and of coarse, go EAT chocolate cake....then pass me a piece, please.
3). Punch the Clock Day: Hmmm...not many people will be doing that today. I have no idea why someone would want that holiday. This holiday celebrates the system of calculating employee work hours though the punch clock invention....I guess have a good one, as I'll skip it.
4). World Leprosy Day: This holiday is to increase the public awareness of the leprosy or Hansen's Disease. This day was chosen in commemoration of the death of Gandhi, the leader of India who understood the importance of leprosy. Leprosy is one of the oldest recorded diseases in the world. It is an infectious chronic disease that targets the nervous system, especially the nerves in the cooler parts of the body - the hands, feet, and face.
5). International Holocaust Remembrance Day: he UN General Assembly designated January 27â€”the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenauâ€”as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. On this annual day of commemoration, every member state of the UN has an obligation to honor the victims of the Nazi era and to develop educational programs to help prevent future genocides. This yearâ€™s theme is Rescue during the Holocaust: The Courage to Care. This is a holiday we do need to remember, as so many people died in the holocaust...such a terrible time in our world's history.
I hope you have a great Sunday!!! If you find anything else, just post it below.
