General Events:

Global Belly Laugh Day
January 24, 2015 in the World

Today is Global Belly Laugh Day. Laughter causes the tissue lining our blood vessels to expand and increase blood flow. This makes us feel more positive, boosts our immune systems, increases pain tolerance and makes us feel good. It is appropriate to be celebrated this time of year as Victor Hugo said, ” Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.”

Global Belly Laugh Day, January 24 according to Belly Laugh Day Founder Elaine Helle is about celebrating with “the people in your life past and present, who laugh with you and help you laugh and smile… and remembering the strange, funny, ‘now I can laugh at it’ moments.”

Laughing Oath
“I do solemnly swear from this day forward
To grease my giggling gears each day
And to wear a grin on my face for no reason at all!
I promise to tap my funny bone often,
With children, family, friends, colleagues and clients,
And to laugh at least fifteen times per day.
I believe that frequent belly laughter
Cures terminal tightness, cerebral stiffness,
And hardening of the attitudes,
And that HA HA often leads to AHA!
Therefore, I vow, from this day forth,
To brighten the day of everyone I meet,
And to laugh long and prosper.”

Fancy Rat & Mouse Day
January 24, 2015 in the World

Fancy Rat & Mouse Day gives us the opportunity to celebrate these beautiful creatures. Not to be confused with wild (black) rats, the Fancy Rat is the domesticated brown rat; while the Fancy Mouse is the domesticated form of the house mouse. Both can be very smart and affectionate and make ideal pets, particularly for children (especially since there is much less looking after than with a dog, cat or rabbit!). But don’t let that make you think the members of the Fancy Rat And Mouse Association take their Fancy Rats and Mice less seriously than they would take any other pets! Fancy Rat and Mouse breeders and enthusiasts head to California several times a year, where professionally bred varieties are judged on a range of categories. It is, in reality, a serious business. Karen Robbins, AFRMA’s spokeswoman, makes a convincing argument for the pets, saying, “Rats are very intelligent and can be trained like dogs. They are clean like cats—always washing themselves—and are very personable. They know their owners and want to be out with them.”

Rats and mice have a bad rap with large parts of society, as they are often associated with dangerous germs and dirt. What’s more, rats and mice are often feared by people, especially children. Most of all, if you are not already a Fancy Rat or Mouse enthusiast, it is important to remember that these animals are not the same ones that you’re probably thinking of, the ones associated with the spread of various diseases such as the bubonic plague or other such widespread disasters to humanity. Fancy Rats and Mice have been kept as pets for years and are both clean and gentle, and definitely nothing to be afraid of. The Fancy Rat and Mouse show out on every year on Fancy Rat and Mouse Day by the AFRMA is not only open to rats and mice and their owners, but also to people who have no experience with these animals and are just curious, to the point that there is no entrance fee. This could be a great opportunity to become acquainted with the creatures and get more comfortable around them. You might also want to watch some of the competitions organized that rats and mice take part in, and watch them win medals and trophies. It’s truly an unforgettable experience! And if you find yourself becoming particularly interested in Fancy Rats and Mice and all of the things they are capable of, why not attend the display event that exhibits the rats and mice that AFRMA members have been breeding specificaly for the purpose of showing people just how adorable a purebred Fancy Rat or Mouse can be. This event can also be a great opportunity for all sorts of pet lovers to meet and bond over their experiences, exchange advice, etc.

Beer Can Appreciation Day
January 24, 2015 in the World

Beer Can Appreciation Day takes place on January 24, 2015. A beer can is a metal container designed to hold a fixed portion of beer. Beer cans are made of aluminium or tin-plated steel. Worldwide production for all beverage cans is approximately 475 billion cans per year worldwide, 52 billion per year in Europe.

Beginning in the 1930s, after an established history of success with storing food, metal cans were used to store beverages. The first beer was available in cans beginning in 1935.

Beer can collecting was a minor fad in the late 1970s and 1990s. However, the hobby waned rapidly in popularity. The Beer Can Collectors of America, founded in 1970, was an organization supporting the hobby, but has now renamed itself Brewery Collectibles Club of America to be more modern.

National Compliment Day
January 24, 2015 in the USA

Yes, its Compliment Day. Today is a great opportunity to say something positive about the people you come into contact with. Everyone has good attributes. …that’s right……. everyone.

-Its a cinch to find compliments for family and loved ones, even for your Mother-in-Law. (Tip: She’s probably a good cook.)

-Friends are friends because you see something good about them. Here’s an easy compliment to a friend: “Wow, you’re very intelligent…you choose your friends wisely”.

-It’s more challenging to compliment your boss, or people you don’t like. Take up the challenge, and find a compliment for them today, too.

Compliment Day is celebrated by offering sincere compliments to people you know. It is important that you are sincere. People will see right through insincerity, and you will do more harm than good.

How many compliments should you give out today? The common suggestion is five compliments. Yes, they should be to five different people.

National Peanut Butter Day
January 24, 2015 in the USA

It’s National Peanut Butter Day! Peanut butter is a staple in over 90% of American households and the average person consumes more than six pounds of peanut products each year. Women and children prefer creamy peanut butter, while most men go for the chunky variety.

George Bayle, a St. Louis snack food maker, started making peanut butter in the 1890s. For many years, manufacturers struggled with the oil separating from the grainy solids of the peaut butter. In 1923 Heinz became the first company to homogenize the peanuts into the spreadable butter we know and love today. Before long peanut butter was a classic American food.

Did you know that it takes 550 peanuts to make a 12 ounce jar of peanut butter? Peanuts are cholesterol free and an excellent source of protein. In fact, it’s the high protein content that causes peanut butter to stick to the roof of your mouth.

To celebrate National Peanut Butter Day, bake some peanut butter cookies, spread some tasty peanut butter on toast, or enjoy a spoonful right out of the jar!
