Shopping Reminder Day
November 26, 2014 in the World

Shopping Reminder Day takes place on November 26, 2014. It’s less than a month until Christmas – don’t forget to buy all of your gifts! Shopping Reminder Day is a stark reminder that you’re running out of time!

Internet sites are almost evenly split, as to the date of this special day. Almost one half list it on the 25th. With the other half recording it on the 26th. A very slight majority have it on the 26th. Therefore, without any insight from the creator of this day, we go with the majority on the 26th.

Shopping is an activity in which a customer browses the available goods or services presented by one or more retailers with the intent to purchase a suitable selection of them. In some contexts it may be considered a leisure activity as well as an economic one.

The shopping experience can range from delightful to terrible, based on a variety of factors including how the customer is treated, convenience, and mood.

National Tie One on Day
November 26, 2014 in the USA

National Tie One on Day might confuse people with it’s name however it is not at all about going out, getting crazy and drinking to much while others are at home, working hard preparing for tomorrow’s big Thanksgiving Day meal.

National Tie One on Day, an “unofficial” national holiday, was created by best-selling author Ellyn Anne Geisel. National Tie One on Day celebrates the apron as well as the past generations of women who wore them and it was also created as a day to bring joy to the life of someone in need and celebrate the spirit of giving.

“Women clad in aprons have traditionally prepared the Thanksgiving meal, and it is within our historical linkage to share our bounty.” EllynAnne Geisel

As part of National Tie One on Day, Buy an apron, bake something, tuck a note of encouragement in the pocket of the apron (or pin it on it), wrap the baked good in the apron and give it to someone in need on Thanksgiving Eve.
