-- In 1824, John Cadbury opened a grocer's shop at 93 Bull Street, Birmingham, England. Among other things, he sold cocoa and drinking chocolate, which he prepared himself using a pestle and mortar. John's wares weren't just inspired by his tastes, they were driven by his beliefs. Tea, coffee, cocoa and drinking chocolate were seen as healthy, delicious alternatives to alcohol which Quakers deemed bad for society. Source

March Forth
-- A little known holiday created by Deborah Shouse, a famous writer, speaker and creativity coach. It is celebrated on March 4th and invites us to march forth into our lives, take on new experiences, and celebrate our accomplishments.
Holy Experiment Day
-- A day to try something religious. It is a chance to try something, or ask for something, and to measure the results.
Hug a GI Day
-- Give a great big hug to any and all GIs you see today. The men and women in our armed forces deserve our thanks and appreciation. GI's perform an invaluable service to our country. They risk their lives for our freedom, and to keep us safe. A simple hug is a small thanks for this vital service to our country.
National Poundcake Day
-- Pound cake has been around since the early eighteenth century. The original recipe consisted of butter, sugar, eggs, and flour. Ingredients were measured by weight, and each ingredient weighed one pound. At first, pound cake did not include liquids and baking powder.
Abraham Lincoln's First Inauguration (1861)
-- I am loth (sic) to close. We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battle-field, and patriot grave, to every living heart and hearthstone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature. Abraham Lincoln, First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1861.
