What am I celebrating today?

August 1, 2017

Today is Lammas, or “loaf mass.”  Traditionally, it is the first harvest festival of the season, marking the beginning of the wheat harvest and is celebrated, naturally, by baking bread.  On this day in the Anglo-Saxon tradition, it was customary to bring to church a loaf of bread made from wheat from the new crop.

So, it is August 1 – go bake some bread and don’t forget to say “rabbit, rabbit.”

It is also tattoo Tuesday:

Today is National Nude Day (I know someone who celebrated a little early).

The origins of this holiday have yet to be uncovered.

However if you want to have a little skin in the game, forget the laundry, but not your sunscreen.  Bottoms up!

What am I celebrating on tattoo Tuesday?

This is a huckleberry milkshake recently acquired at the travel center, gas station, restaurant, gift shop, casino and espresso bar in St. Regis, Montana.

Today is Soda Jerk Day

The term ‘soda jerk’ was a pun on ‘soda clerk’, the formal job title of the drugstore assistants who operated soda fountains, and was inspired by the “jerking” action the server would use to swing the soda fountain handle back and forth when adding the soda water. The soda fountain spigot itself typically was a sturdy, shiny fixture on the end of a metal pipe or other similar structure sticking out of the counter by several feet and curving towards where the glasses would be filled. The unflavored carbonated water was used to make all of the drinks. Consequently, the tap handle was typically large, as a busy shop would have the soda jerker using it frequently. This made the mixing of drinks a center of activity at the soda fountain counter. – Wikipedia

Today is National Tartan Day, which makes note of the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath in 1320.  This document declared Scotland to be an independent and sovereign country – my, how things have changed.

March 28 is Something on a Stick Day

When I was a Girl Scout and we went camping, sometimes we took twigs, took off the bark, wrapped the end in biscuit dough and baked them over a campfire.  When they were done, we pulled them off the twigs and stuffed them with jam.  I remember them being one of the best things I had ever tasted.

I am not sure I would have the same response now.

These look good, though.

And then there are corn dogs.
