Tuesday, the 28th of October, 2014 is the 301th day in 2014 and in the 44th calendar week.
General Events:
Ohi Day 2014
October 28, 2014 in Greece and Cyprus
Ohi Day is observed on October 28, 2014. Ohi Day (also spelled Ochi Day) is celebrated throughout Greece, Cyprus and the Greek communities around the world each year, to commemorate the rejection by Greek Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas (in power from August 4, 1936, until January 29, 1941) of the ultimatum made by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini on October 28, 1940. This ultimatum, which was presented to Metaxas by the Italian ambassador in Greece, Emanuele Grazzi, on October 28, 1940, after a party in the German embassy in Athens, demanded that Greece allow Axis forces to enter Greek territory and occupy certain unspecified “strategic locations” or otherwise face war. It was allegedly answered with a single laconic word: No! However, his actual reply was: Then it is war. In response to Metaxas’s refusal, Italian troops stationed in Albania, then an Italian protectorate, attacked the Greek border – the beginning of Greece’s participation in World War II. On the morning of October 28 the Greek population took to the streets, irrespective of political affiliation, shouting ‘ochi’. From 1942, it was celebrated as Ohi Day.

Plush Animal Lover’s Day
October 28, 2014 in the World
Plush Animal Lover’s Day is observed on October 28, 2014. You are supposed to love your stuffed animals on this day. A plush animal is a toy sewn from a textile, and stuffed with a soft material. They are also known as plush toys, plushies, or stuffed animals (U.S. & Canadian English), and soft toys or cuddly toys (British English).
Textiles commonly used include plain cloth and pile bodys like oranges plush or terrycloth. Common stuffing materials are synthetic fiber batting, cotton, straw, wood wool, plastic pellets or beans. The first commercial concern to create stuffed toys was the German Steiff company in 1880. Steiff used new technology developed for upholstery to make their stuffed toys.
Stuffed toys are made in many different forms, often resembling animals, legendary creatures, cartoon characters or inanimate objects. They are often used as comfort objects, for display or collecting and given as gifts, such as for graduation, Valentine’s Day or birthdays.

National Chocolates Day
October 28, 2014 in the USA
National Chocolates Day is celebrated annually on October 28.  While there are many chocolate related holidays throughout the year, National Chocolates Day is a day to celebrate all things chocolate.  As America’s favorite flavor, chocolate is well deserving of it’s own day of honor and celebration.  ( Some sources designater July 7 or December 28 as “Chocolate Day” or “International Chocolate Day”)
Chocolate comes from the seed of the tropical Theobroma cacao tree.  Cacao, which has been cultivated for at least three millennia, is grown in Mexico, Central America and Northern South America.  The earliest known documentation of use, of cacao seeds, is around 1100 BC.  The cacao tree seed have a very intense bitter taste that must be fermented to develop the flavor.
