Kev’s Daily Take On 11/20/2022

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands,
One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Religious Holidays

CHRIST THE KING DAY is celebrated on the last Sunday of the Catholic liturgical calendar.  This reminds us that while our earthly governments and kingdoms come and go, Christ reigns now and forever and exemplifies the traits of a good King by caring for His people.

A Tip of the Hat Goes to…

FUTURE TEACHERS OF AMERICA DAY encourages and trains those who want to shape minds in the future.  Teaching is such a noble calling and requires a lot of dedication as well as a big heart.  We certainly encourage and applaud everyone who feels led to tackle this profession.

Awareness Spotlight shines on…

NATIONAL CHILD’S DAY wants to give every child a good support system and chance to flourish.  Letting them know that they matter and are loved is a good start.  I don’t think that it’s a coincidence that this day is observed on the anniversary of the UN adopting the Universal Declaration of Children’s Rights (1959).

For Fun

NATIONAL ABSURDITY DAY points a finger at those moments in life that leave us laughing or scratching our heads.  Sometimes, a little absurdity is what we need.


NAME YOUR PC DAY adds that personal touch to that screen that holds our attention.  Our computer is our work companion, play buddy, research assistant and sometimes just a time waster, so of course it deserves a name.

On Today’s Menu…

PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE DAY combines the creaminess of peanut butter with the sweet texture of fudge for a delicious treat.  Buy some or bake some – either way, make sure and celebrate this one today.
