Today is Squirrel Appreciation Day! Did you know there's only about 140,000 red squirrels left, most of them in Scotland? It sounds like a lot until you realize how many die from disease or get eaten. Also, it is Hugging Day! So go hug that person who hates hugs! Granola Bar Day and Get to Know Your Customers Day is today, as well, so... Go hug a cashier while buying granola bars and a book on squirrels.
Welcome to the first of five straight days of date digit palindromes! A date that can be read the same forward and backward. 1.20.21 starts us off! 1.20.2021 is a seven-digit palindrome. Fun fact, today is the first time an inauguration has ever been held on a palindrome date. The next one won't be for one thousand years!
Happy Popcorn Day and World Quark Day! Popcorn Day is easy, but what is "quark?" I had to look it up. It sounds like a food that is stuck halfway between yogurt and cheese and is theoretically very good for you. If any of you know what it's like, let me know if it's any good!
Today is the best day ever. Not because it is Michigan Day, or Peking Duck Day, or Thesaurus Day though those are all very good Days. No, not even because it is MLKJ Day (which is its own category of brilliance). No, it is the best day because it is Winnie the Pooh Day!! I happen to own one of the very original Winnie the Pooh teddy bears as well as an original painting of the little boy the book is based on.
