Awareness Spotlight shines on…
GIVING HEARTS DAY is all about the giving from your heart. Since 2008, people have been donating to their favorite charities on this day and in a big way. 2020 saw more than $19 million raised for charitable causes – a long way from the first year when $500,000 was the mark hit. You can go to givingheartsday.org to find all of the charities listed.
Education and Information
It pains me to announce NATIONAL TOOTHACHE DAY. Proper dental hygiene can save you a lot of pain, money and time and that includes brushing, flossing and the use of mouth wash. It is a lot better to see the dentist for a routine cleaning than to fill a cavity or have a tooth pulled.
What does Sling TV have to do with cutting the cord? NATIONAL CUT THE CORD DAY is all about switching from the tethered hold of cable and perusing the freedom of streaming TV. Sling thought it would be a good idea to sponsor this day of getting people to make the change from having to watch scheduled programming to choosing what you watch when you want to watch it.
On Today’s Menu…
This next one is a MAJOR holiday. NATIONAL PIZZA DAY doesn’t discriminate on what kind of pie catches your eye. Thin, thick or hand tossed crust – New York, Chicago, Detroit or St. Louis style are all options today. Pick your crust and toppings and enjoy. Bring it all on – except anchovies.
BAGEL AND LOX DAY brings us the tasty combination of a yummy bagel, cream cheese and a favorite topper – lox. The buttery silky salmon just pairs well and is a healthy addition to this dish.
