All is Ours Day
April 8, 2014 in the World
All is Ours Day is is bound to be a spectacular day for…… us.
Think of the concept. Imagine the possibilities. The creator of this day was absolutely brilliant. What a great day this will be.
The creator of this day was absolutely brilliant. Let’s dissect the meaning and intent of this great day. We will do so by examining the title of this day, word for word. It begins with the word “all”. For such a little word, it’s all-inclusive. From a possessive standpoint, therefore, we are talking about anything and everything we want.. The verb “is” is sort, sweet and definite. It leaves no room for doubt or question.
Finally, the creator chose the word “our” rather than the word “mine” This is a vital decision allowing us to completely enjoy today. The greatest events, and the best things in life, are those that are shared. The only thing the creator left out is the definition of who “Ours” represents. That is left up to you.
The day wants to highlight all the wonderful things in the world. Be aware of our surroundings and what exists in them. Think about the fact, that a lot of these things belong to everyone and that they should be shared with all people in the world.

National Empanada Day
April 8, 2014 in the USA
An empanada is a delicious Spanish and Portuguese type of stuffed bread, also known as “delicioco.” Empanadas can be served hot or cold as the main course or as a side dish.
Empanadas are made by folding dough around a premade stuffing of chicken, cod, or pork loin. Other ingredients include tomatoes, garlic, and onion sauce.
Though this delectable dish originated in Europe, immigrants brought the recipe to various countries around the world where it was adopted and slightly altered to fit the tastes of that particular country. In Argentina, for example, empanadas are sometimes made with a fruit filling and served as dessert. In Jamaica, empanadas are referred to as “Jamaican patties” and are made with crispy pastry dough.
Empanadas were first served in the U.S. at Taco Bell, however they are now found on menus at Latin American restaurants around the world. To celebrate National Empanada Day, try making your own empanadas for dinner!
