Stupid Guy Thing Day
June 22, 2015 in the World
June 22nd is officially Stupid Guy Thing Day.  I’m not kidding.  It’s an actual declared day!  Stupid Guy Thing Day is designated as a day to commemorate all of the stupid things guys do.
Ok ladies, chances are pretty good you’ll be able to relate to this annual holiday, created by the folks at
But let’s be honest. We’ve all done stupid things in our lives regardless of our gender. Really embarrassing, humiliating and downright stupid things, right? But no matter how hard we try, many gals just can’t figure out why some guys do the things they do. It’s almost like men and women really are from two entirely different planets!

National Chocolate Eclair Day
June 22, 2015 in the USA
National Chocolate Eclair Day takes place on June 22, 2015. An chocolate éclair is an oblong pastry made with choux dough filled with a cream and topped with chocolate icing.
The dough, which is the same as that used for profiterole, is typically piped into an oblong shape with a pastry bag and baked until it is crisp and hollow inside. Once cool, the pastry then is filled with a vanilla-, coffee- or chocolate-flavoured custard, or with whipped cream, or chiboust cream; and then iced with fondant icing.
The éclair originated during the nineteenth century in France. It is a popular type of cake served all over the world. The word is first attested both in English and in French in the 1860s.
