Moms and Dads Day
- Being a parent is a tough job and there are often just not enough hours in the day to get everything done! Surprise your mom and dad today to honor their parenting and all they have done for you throughout the years. Take this day to reminisce about family holidays, journeys and experiences.
World Kindness Day
- Today's purpose is to look beyond ourselves, beyond the boundaries of our country, beyond our culture, our race, our religion; and realize we are citizens of the world. The World Kindness Movement grew out of a series of Kindness Conferences convened by the Japanese Small Kindness Movement in 1996.
National Indian Pudding Day
- A day to enjoy puddings created by Native American Indians. American Indian puddings are defined as recipes of Native American Indian origin. Generally, they include molasses and cornmeal. Apples were often an ingredient. They were usually baked.
Artificial Snow Birthday (1949)
- Like so many other scientific innovations, artificial snow was born out of wartime necessity. In this case, it began during World War II and experiments with the creation of artificial fog meant to conceal ships at sea. Despite protests that artificial snow shouldn't be used because it messed with Mother Nature's design, it only took a few years for ski resorts to begin looking for ways to create the fake stuff for use during bad snow years.
National Young Readers Day
- Pizza Hut and the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress established National Young Reader's Day to remind Americans of the joys and importance of reading for young people. Schools, libraries, families, and communities nationwide use this day to celebrate youths reading in a variety of creative and educational ways.
Fantasia Birthday (1940)
- a 1940 American animated film produced by Walt Disney with brief live-action introductions between the animated segments. The third feature-length animated film produced by Walt Disney Productions, Fantasia features eight animated segments set to classical music selections.
Holland Tunnel Birthday (1927)
- On this date in 1927, the world's first long, mechanically-ventilated underwater tunnel, the Holland Tunnel, opened between New York and New Jersey beneath the Hudson River. The tunnel is named for Clifford Milburn Holland, its chief engineer, who died before the project was completed.
Fall of Kabul (2001)
- Northern Alliance troops opposing the Islamic extremist regime of the Taliban moved into the capital of Afghanistan on this date in 2001 — the first major victory in the war on terrorism prompted by Sept 11, 2001, attacks on America. After fleeing Kabul (which the Taliban had controlled since 1996), the Taliban regime quickly collapsed.
