Daily Holidays - August 27

National Pots de
Crème Day National Pots De Creme Day is observed annually on August 27th.

This delicious French desert is a loose french custard dating back to the 17th century. It’s name means “pot of custard” or “pot of creme” which is also referring to the white porcelain cups in which the dessert is traditionally served in.

Pot de creme is made by combining eggs, egg yolks, cream, milk and typically either vanilla or chocolate flavoring. The mixture is baked, in the porcelain cups, in a water bath at a low temperature. http://nationaldaycalendar.com/latest-posts/

The Duchess Who Wasn't Day “The Duchess” Who Wasn’t Day celebrates the life of Margaret Wolfe Hungerford, an irish novelist who was always published under the pen name “The Duchess” in the United States – also the name of her most popular novel, published in 1887. Margaret is responsible for the popular phrase “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, in her book Molly Bawn, so try and slip it into conversation!

In total, The Duchess had at least 57 works attributed to her name but could have written many, many more as a lot of her early work was published as Anonymous, and later as Mrs Hungerford, before “The Duchess” became popular in the States. She also wrote many newspaper articles and had a large family – four daughters and two sons.

Born on the 27th April 1855 in County Cork, she won prizes in school for writing stories. After the death of her first husband in 1876 The Duchess took to writing more seriously to support her three daughters, and it was shortly after this that her first book “Phyllis” was written, and a little later on “Molly Bawn”.

She remarried in 1882, had two sons and a daughter with her second husband and eventually died of typhoid fever in 1897. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/the-duchess-who-wasnt-day/

Burger Day Do you fancy yourself as a burger connoisseur? Then Burger Day is your excuse to indulge and to try new flavors and experiences! Burger Day is run by a Mr Hyde, who sample, test and revel in the delights (and doubtless horrors) of burger vendors. Why not join them and try a new burger venue, flavor or style in your city? https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/burger-day/

National Just Because Day. Feel free to celebrate this day any way you choose, “just because” !

Every day we all do things that are expected or required of us or because we have to, well today that does not apply. Today is a chance to do something without rhyme or reason.

It could be that there is an outfit at the mall that you are admiring; buy it…. just because.
Maybe you want to use a vacation day just to go fishing; do it…… just because. http://nationaldaycalendar.com/latest-posts/
