Tuesday, the 29th of December, 2015 is the 363th day in 2015 and in the 53rd calendar week.
General Events:
National Pepper Pot Day
December 29, 2015 in the USA
Pepper Pot Day is observed on December 29, 2015. Pepper Pot is a thick stew of beef tripe, vegetables, pepper and other seasonings. The origins of the stew are steeped in legend, with one story attributing the dish to Christopher Ludwick, baker general of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War.
According to this story, the winter of 1777–1778 in Valley Forge was exceptionally harsh. Farmers in the area sold their food to the British for pounds rather than the weak continental currency offered by George Washington’s soldiers. The Continental Army was running low on food, and survived on a stew made of tripe, vegetables, and whatever else they could find to stay alive.

Tick Tock Day
December 29, 2015 in the World
And so another year is almost done and dusted; it’s 29 December – after today there will be only 2 more days to go before 2016 arrives. That time of year when you start seriously contemplating everything you thought you were going to do and achieve this year. And of course, with this comes the regrets of all the opportunities missed, all the targets not achieved…
Well, today is Tick Tock Day, an unofficial holiday – specially created to give you one last chance to pick some of those goals that have not been realised; to see if you cannot cram one or two more achievements into the year before everything starts over again with a new set of resolutions.
Think about it this way – after today you have 2 more days to your disposal. That’s 48 hours. Or 2880 minutes. Or if you prefer, 172 800 seconds. That’s hundreds of thousands of seconds! Imagine how much you can achieve in that time!
But you better hurry – time is ticking… Tick tock, tick tock…
