Chimborazo Day
June 3, 2015 in the World
June 3rd each year is celebrated as Chimborazo Day. As its name suggests, this day is set aside to celebrate the Mount Chimborazo, which is a point on the Earth that is closest to the moon.
Many people would claim that Mount Everest is the highest spot on the Earth. Actually, it is the highest one from the sea level. However, when it comes to which one is closer to the moon and the outer space, Mount Chimborazo in Ecuador is the winner – 1.5 miles closer to be exact. Therefore, through the celebration of the Chimborazo Day each year, many more people will know about that fact.

National Egg Day
June 3, 2015 in the USA
Eggs are a terrific source of protein and vitamin D, which makes them one of the healthiest breakfast foods. Did you know that there are more than a hundred ways to cook an egg? Some of the most popular varieties are scrambled, fried, poached, hard-boiled, sunny-side up, and over-easy.
While the eggs that Americans typically consume come from chickens, a wide range of poultry (like ducks and geese) provide tasty gourmet egg varieties. Quail eggs, for example, are considered a delicacy in many countries.
To celebrate National Egg Day, cook up your favorite egg recipe for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner!
