International Thank You Day
January 11, 2016 in the World
Every year people all over the world celebrate International Thank You Day that falls on January 11. This celebration is the ideal opportunity to show your gratitude to people who make your days what they are.
The origin of International Thank You Day is unclear. But this doesn’t make the concept of International Thank You Day less appealing.
Celebrate this day by showing your appreciation to people who make your life better and more beautiful. One single word can make people who surround you happier, isn’t it great?
Unfortunately we often forget to show gratitude to others. We think only about ourselves and don’t notice all the things that relatives and friends do for us. Be polite, think of others and then simple “thank you” will make their day better.
This day is considered as one of the most polite days. But don’t forget thank all people who deserve it during the rest of the year.

Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friend’s Day
January 11, 2016 in the World
Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friend’s Day is observed on January 11, 2016. Puddles are often a source of recreation for children, who regard jumping in puddles as one of the “up-sides” to rain. A children’s nursery rhyme records the story of Doctor Foster and his encounter with a puddle in Gloucester.
Puddles are usually formed from rain water or from irrigation. A puddle is generally small enough for an adult to step over, shallow enough to walk through, and too small to traverse in a boat or raft.
Puddles commonly form during rain, and can cause problems for transport. Due to the angle of the road, puddles tend to be forced by gravity to gather on the edges of the road. This can cause splashing as cars drive through the puddles, which causes water to be sprayed onto pedestrians on the pavement.

National Hot Toddy Day
January 11, 2016 in the USA
A hot toddy is a delicious drink made with honey, lemon, hot water, and the spirit of your choice (usually whiskey, brandy, or rum). It’s the perfect way to warm up on a cold winter day, and a few sips can also relieve cold or flu symptoms.
Hot toddies originated in Scotland sometime during the 18th century. While the exact details are unknown, historians believe that the recipe was developed to make the taste of Scotch whiskey more palatable. (Apparently the women of the day didn’t care for the smoky, peat flavor.) One theory suggests that the word “toddy” evolved from “Tod’s well” (also known as Todian Spring), the water supply for Edinburgh.
Today there are many variations on the original hot toddy recipe. Some versions call for tea, coffee, cocoa, apple cider, spices, or even butter. To celebrate National Hot Toddy Day, brew up your favorite type of hot toddy and enjoy!

Feast of Fabulous Wild Men Day
January 12, 2015 in the World
Feast of Fabulous Wild Men Day just could be your day……… if you’re a fabulous wild guy.
Feast of Fabulous Wild Men Day is celebrated on January 12, 2015. Henry David Thoreau wrote the famous phrase, “In wildness is the preservation of the world.” Attempts to identify the characteristics of wildness are varied. One consideration sees wildness as that part of nature which is not controllable by humans. Nature retains a measure of autonomy, or wildness, apart from human constructions.
The extent to which masculinity is a result of nature or nurture, a matter of what someone is born with or how they are socialised, has been the subject of much debate. There is an extensive debate about how children develop gender identities. On the nature side of the debate, it is argued that masculinity is inextricably linked with the male body.

Pharmacist Day
January 12, 2015 in the USA
National Pharmacist Day takes place on January 12, 2015. Pharmacists, also known as chemists or druggists, are healthcare professionals who practice in pharmacy, the field of health sciences focusing on safe and effective medication use. The role of the pharmacist has shifted from the classical “lick, stick, and pour” dispensary role, to being an integrated member of the health care team directly involved in patient care.
Pharmacists undergo university-level education to understand biochemical mechanisms of action of drugs, drug uses, and therapeutic roles, side effects, potential drug interactions, and monitoring parameters. This is mated to anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology. Pharmacists interpret and communicate this specialized knowledge to patients, physicians, and other health care providers.
