Awareness Spotlight shines on…
GIVING TUESDAY follows on the heels of a season of holiday shopping. The idea of the day is to pass some of those savings you took advantage of onto others who are less fortunate
ISDAL WOMAN DAY remembers those who died in mysterious ways and who remain unidentified. In 1970, in Isdalen Norway, the body of a woman was discovered by hikers. The body was burned beyond recognition and all identifying labels and tags on her clothes and purse had been removed. Police were able to trace her past movements from 5 days before but that just showed her using aliases and fake passports. Her autopsy revealed around 70-75 sleeping pills in her system as well as smoke in her lungs, meaning she was alive as she was burned. To this day, her identity remains a mystery. Today we remember those victims who tragically died as unknowns and their families who are seeking answers.

Education and Information
THROW OUT YOUR LEFTOVERS DAY reminds us that is time to toss the turkey. Don’t eat any more of that stuffing and if you still have pumpkin pie left over, too bad. That should’ve been gone yesterday.
SQUARE DANCING DAY bows to our partner, then to our corner. Grab your partner and Do Si Do. Allemande left and promenade around the square. If you don’t know what these terms mean, then you didn’t have to square dance in elementary school gym class like I did. At the time I thought it was pretty lame, but looking back, it was actually a lot of fun, though no one could admit that at the time. It’s good exercise and makes for a nice social event.
