Day of German Butterbrot
September 26, 2014 in Germany
Day of German Butterbrot is observed on September 26, 2014. The German word Butterbrot describes a slice of bread topped with butter. Russian adopted the term “Butterbrot” to refer to sandwiches in general. Although it is increasingly replaced by other foods, it remains a common staple food in Germany. Since 1999, the last Friday in the month of September was made the day of butterbrot by the Marketing Organization of German Agricultural Industries.
A butterbrot is commonly a single slice of bread and one “ingredient” on top of the butter or margarine. For breakfast, this ingredient tends to be sweet and can be marmalade, jam, honey, chocolate spread, hazelnut spread, peanut butter, sprinkles, vlokken, or muisjes. For dinner – German-speaking countries traditionally eat only one cooked meal per day – the butterbrot is eaten with something savory, usually a single slice of cold meat or cheese, or sometimes spreads etc.

Dominion Day 2014
September 26, 2014 in New Zealand
Dominion Day takes place on September 26, 2014. Dominion Day is the name given to 26 September, the anniversary of the day in 1907 when New Zealand was granted dominion status within the British Empire. No longer a statutory (bank) holiday, the only current official observance of the day is as a Provincial Anniversary Day in South Canterbury, and is celebrated on the fourth Monday of September. There is support in some quarters for the day to be revived as an alternative New Zealand Day, instead of renaming Waitangi Day, New Zealand’s current national day.

Johnny Appleseed Day
September 26, 2014 in the USA
Johnny Appleseed Day honors one of America’s great legends. Johnny Appleseed was a real person. John Chapman was among the American settlers who were captivated by the movement west across the continent. As Johnny Appleseed travelled west, he planted apple trees along the way, and sold trees to settlers. With every apple tree that was planted, the legend grew.
There is a lot of “legend” in stories written about Johny Appleseed. By it’s definition, over the years, legends grow bigger than life. It also appears that there is some link between Johny Appleseed and very early Arbor Day celebrations.
Celebrate today with an apple rich menu. Include fresh apples for snacks, and some applesauce or apple pie for dessert. And, make plans to plant an apple tree.
