Kev’s Daily Take On 01/05/2023

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

TWELFTH NIGHT was first celebrated in the 4th century to commemorate the birth of Christ and to mark the beginning of Epiphany – a sacred season held with festivities that also mark the coming of the Wise Men.  It is said that if you wait until the Twelfth Night to take down your decorations, it will bring good luck.

A Tip of the Hat Goes to…

NATIONAL SCREENWRITERS’ DAY gives a big thank you to the folks who make all of our shows and movies possible. Without them, actors wouldn’t know what to say and directors wouldn’t have any…well…direction.  Keep typing those stories, we appreciate you very much.

Our Feathered Friends


NATIONAL BIRD DAY takes flight as we give these graceful creatures some admiration.  Go outside and see how many you can identify.  Today also gives special attention to the efforts that are underway to preserve habitats and protect those species that are on the endangered list.

Education and Information


On Today’s Menu…

WHIPPED CREAM DAY represents the crème de la crème of dessert toppings.  Where would our pumpkin pies, sundaes and foo-foo coffee drinks be without it?  This day was picked to celebrate it as it is also the birthday of Aaron Bunny Lapin – the guy who invented Reddi-Wip.
