-- Monopoly is derived from The Landlord's Game created by Lizzie Magie in the US in 1903 as a way to demonstrate an economy rewarding wealth creation is better than one where monopolists work under few constraints, and to promote the economic theories of Henry George — in particular his ideas about taxation. Published by Parker Brothers in 1935, the game was named after the economic concept of monopoly — the domination of a market by a single entity. Source

-- In the late 1800s lived Lizzie Magie, a clever and charismatic woman with a strong sense of justice. Waves of urban migration drew Lizzie's attention to rising financial inequality. One day she had an idea: create a game showing the unfairness of the landlord-tenant relationship. But game players seemed to have the most fun pretending to be wealthy landowners. Enter Charles Darrow, a marketer and salesman with a vision for transforming Lizzie's game into an exciting staple of American family entertainment.

National Crown Roast of Pork Day
- A special day to cook and eat pork. To participate in this day it must be crown roast pork. Any other just will not do. The first mention of the recipe was in The Market Basket which was part of The Southeast Missourian newspaper on November 4, 1932. In the article, Sister Mary's Kitchen says the crown roast of pork has a festive appearance. It also explains how to carve the crown.
Telephone Patented (1876)
- Alexander Graham Bell of Scotland is commonly credited as the inventor of the first practical telephone. Bell was the first to obtain a patent, on March 7, 1876, for an apparatus for transmitting vocal or other sounds telegraphically, after experimenting with many primitive sound transmitters and receivers.
U.S. Snowshoe Day
- Snowshoes are fun because they allow you to hike in the winter. By staying above the snow, you can go just about anywhere you can normally hike in the summer. The advantage of snowshoeing is you get to float down the mountain when you are ready to descend, especially if there is fresh powder. Or you can strap a snowboard to your pack and really get down fast!
National Be Heard Day
- There are more than 145 million small businesses in the US, but often, small business owners are less likely to get the media coverage they deserve. Today celebrates and empowers business owners and entrepreneurs who can find their voices, tell their stories and be heard through publicity efforts.
