Intersex Awareness Day
October 26, 2014 in the World

Intersex Awareness Day is observed on October 26, 2014. Intersex Awareness Day (also spelled as Inter Sex Awareness Day or abbreviated as IAD) is an internationally observed civil awareness day designed to highlight the challenges faced by intersex individuals. IAD is an international day of grass-roots action to end shame, secrecy and unwanted genital cosmetic surgeries on intersex children.

On October 26, 1996, intersex activists from Intersex Society of North America and allies from Transexual Menace held the first public intersex demonstration in Boston, where American Academy of Pediatrics was holding its annual conference. Intersex is a variation in sex characteristics including chromosomes, gonads, and/or genitals that do not allow an individual to be distinctly identified as male or female.

Intersex infants with ambiguous outer genitalia may be surgically ‘corrected’ to more easily fit into a socially accepted sex category. Others may opt, in adulthood, for surgical procedures in order to align their physical sex characteristics with their gender identity or the sex category to which they were assigned at birth. Others will not become aware that they are intersex – unless they receive genetic testing – because it does not manifest in their phenotype.

Mother-In-Law Day
October 26, 2014 in the World

Mother-In-Law Day is celebrated on October 26, 2014. It is celebrated each year on the fourth Sunday in October. A mother-in-law is the mother of a person’s spouse. Two women who are mothers-in-law to each other’s children may be called co-mothers-in-law.

In comedies, the mother-in-law is sometimes shown as the bane of the husband, who is married to the mother-in-law’s daughter. Mothers-in-law are often stereotyped in mother-in-law jokes.

A parent-in-law is a person who has a legal affinity with another by being the parent of the other’s spouse. Many cultures and legal systems impose duties and responsibilities on persons connected by this relationship.

Angam Day 2014
October 26, 2014 in Republic of Nauru

Angam Day is celebrated on October 26, 2014. Angam Day is a holiday recognized in the Republic of Nauru. Angam Day is a day of celebration and a time of reflection for the Nauruan people. Twice in its history, the Nauruan population fell below 1,500, and the Nauruan ethnic group have been considered in danger of extinction. On both occasions the Nauruan population recovered. Upon eclipsing a population of 1,500, a number considered to be the minimum required for the survival of a race, Angam Day was declared. The first Angam was in 1932 and the second occasion in 1949.

National Mincemeat Day
October 26, 2014 in the USA

National Mincemeat Day takes place on October 26, 2014. Mincemeat is a mixture of chopped dried fruit, distilled spirits and spices, and sometimes beef suet, beef, or venison. Originally, mincemeat always contained meat.

Many modern recipes contain beef suet, though vegetable shortening is sometimes used in its place. Variants of mincemeat are found in Australia, Brittany, Canada, northern Europe, Ireland, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States. In some countries the term mincemeat refers to minced or ground meat.

Mincemeat is frequently consumed during the Christmas holiday season when mince pies or mincemeat tarts are served. In the northeast United States, mincemeat pies are also a traditional part of the Thanksgiving holiday, sometimes served with a piece of Cheddar cheese.
