National Cranky Co-Workers Day!
October 27, 2014 in the USA
On October 27th, make sure to have a Snickers bar and a double shot of espresso drink in hand. It’s Cranky Co-Workers Day!

Tell a Story Day
October 27, 2014 in Scotland and U.K.
National Tell a Story Day is observed in Scotland and U.K. on October 27, 2014. It celebrates story-telling of all kinds. Libraries celebrate this day with story telling hours for kids. Storytelling is the conveying of events in words, and images, often by improvisation or embellishment.
Stories or narratives have been shared in every culture as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation, and instilling moral values. Crucial elements of stories and storytelling include plot, characters, and narrative point of view.
Modern storytelling has a broad purview. In addition to its traditional forms (fairytales, folktales, mythology, legends, fables etc.), it has extended itself to representing history, personal narrative, political commentary, and evolving cultural norms. Contemporary storytelling is also widely used to address educational objectives.

Navy Day 2014
October 27, 2014 in the USA
Navy Day takes place on October 27, 2014. In the United States, the Navy League of the United States organized the first Navy Day in 1922, holding it on October 27 because it was the birthday of President Theodore Roosevelt, who was a naval enthusiast.
Although meeting with mixed reviews the first year, in 1923 over 50 major cities participated, and the United States Navy sent a number of its ships to various port cities for the occasion. The 1945 Navy Day was an especially large celebration, with President Harry S. Truman reviewing the fleet in New York Harbor.
In the 1970s, the “birthday” of the Continental Navy was found to be October 13, 1775, and so CNO Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt worked with the Navy League to define October 13 as the new date of Navy Day. However, Navy Day in the United States is still largely recognized as October 27.
