Daily Holidays - June 28

National Tapioca Day Tapioca Day is dedicated the starch that is extracted from Manioc, otherwise known as ‘Cassava’. This plant is most commonly known as the source of the translucent beads in Tapioca pudding. But while this is the most commonly known use of this substance, it has cultural significance around the world. It’s origins can be found in Brazil, where the cassava plant is called the mandioca, and it’s extracted starch is called Tapioca. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/tapioca-day/

Paul Bunyan Day It may sometimes seem as though a great majority of the most popular folklore characters are evil predators who spend their lives hunting for their next victim. Paul Bunyan, on the other hand, is the embodiment of the all-American lumberjack—tall, strong, capable, and good-natured. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/paul-bunyan-day/

Insurance Awareness Day There’s something that most people don’t talk about, don’t think about, and when the end comes it snaps right around and hits them square in the face. Their homes and cars remain unprotected, and there’s nothing to save them when the hammers comes down. Insurance Awareness Day reminds you that taking the time to talk to an insurance agent and get a policy on your life, car, or home can save you and your family at the worst times the future holds. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/insurance-awareness-day/
