Daily Holidays - December 28

National Chocolate
Candy Day December 28 is National Chocolate Candy Day – a day to celebrate one of the most popular sweets in the world. More than 2.8 billion pounds of chocolate are consumed annually in America. Though we often think of it as a sweet indulgence, chocolate has been shown to have some health benefits. It is often shown to be heart-healthy because it has anti-inflammatory properties which reduce cardiovascular risk. Also, the pleasure that you get from eating chocolate doesn’t just come from its wonderful taste and rich texture. Researchers have confirmed that chocolate affects serotonin levels in the body, triggering feelings of well-being. At the same time, chocolate increases blood flow to the brain and helps to reduce fatigue and increase alertness.

Endangered Species Act Day The Endangered Species Act of 1973 (ESA; 7 U.S.C. § 136, 16 U.S.C. § 1531 et seq.) is one of the few dozens of United States environmental laws passed in the 1970s. Signed into law by President Richard Nixon on December 28, 1973, it was designed to protect critically imperiled species from extinction as a "consequence of economic growth and development untempered by adequate concern and conservation." The U.S. Supreme Court found that "the plain intent of Congress in enacting" the ESA "was to halt and reverse the trend toward species extinction, whatever the cost."[1] The Act is administered by two federal agencies, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endangered_Species_Act
