Daily Holidays - June 27

National Orange Blossom Day National Orange Blossom Day is observed annually on June 27th. This day is set aside to enjoy Orange Blossoms for their aesthetic beauty. Orange blossoms have been used in culinary dishes, desserts, and teas worldwide. They add a slight citrus flavor to any dish! http://nationaldaycalendar.com/days-2/national-orange-blossom-day-june-27/

Industrial Workers of The World Day With the modernisation of industry, a move from manufacturing to consumerism and a general shift in global market operations, industrial processes and businesses are much less common than they used to be. As such, it’s easy to overlook just how big a part industry still plays, and how many people are employed by industrial organisations working in industrial roles. Industrial Workers Of The World Day draws attention to these workers, and to their importance in producing the goods that we consume and rely on. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/industrial-workers-of-the-world-day/

Sunglasses Day Elton John has over a thousand pairs, Canadian singer Corey Hart only wears his at night, and you can tell the good guys from the bad guys in The Matrix by the shape of theirs. What am I talking about? Sunglasses, of course! There’s nothing quite as stylish as a pair of shades, so get out your aviators or your wayfarers and start celebrating Sunglasses Day!

Although the origins of Sunglasses Day are unknown, the history of sunglasses stretches as far back as 14th century China, where judges used eyewear made of smoke-coloured quartz to mask their emotions. Fast-forward 600 years and modern sunglasses as we know them today were first marketed by entrepreneur Sam Foster on the Atlantic City Boardwalk.

One other thing to remember is that sunglasses also help protect your eyes from harmful UV light, so channel your inner-cool and slip on those shades on Sunglasses Day! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/sunglasses-day/

4. Thank you, Industrial Workers!

June 27 is Industrial Workers of the World Day. This day, set aside to honor the millions of factory and other industrial workers around the world began in 1905 when a few hundred people founded the International Workers of the World (IWW) association in Chicago. The group, also called the "wobblies," was instrumental in securing fairer wages, shorter hours, and better and safer working conditions for the people who labored in America's and the world's factories. The organization continues to work to correct inequities in the industrial workplace, such as securing equal pay for equal work for men and women.

5. Helen Adams Keller (June 27, 1880 – June 1, 1968)

 

"The few own the many because they possess the means of livelihood of all ... The country is governed for the richest, for the corporations, the bankers, the land speculators, and for the exploiters of labor. The majority of mankind are working people. So long as their fair demands—the ownership and control of their livelihoods—are set at naught, we can have neither men's rights nor women's rights. The majority of mankind is ground down by industrial oppression in order that the small remnant may live in ease."

Helen Keller, 1911[26]
