Daily Holidays - February 8

Molasses Bar Day February 8th is a national food holiday for those who love sweet bakery treats. This day is National Molasses Bar Day. Why the history of the holiday itself is unclear, molasses have been around since the 1500s. They were and are still used to sweeten up foods and as a preservative.
Molasses bars are sweet, chewy, and perfectly portable. Bake up a batch and share them with everyone in the office, or hoard a stash in your kitchen or desk drawer. The About website has an amazing recipe that takes this food a bit farther, and adds icing (http://southernfood.about.com/od/browniesbars/r/bl31011j.htm). Their “Molasses Bars” recipe calls for molasses, cinnamon, butter, ginger, coffee, and a few other ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen. The secret to their icing is the orange juice! Cooking up a batch and sharing them with those you love is the perfect way to celebrate on February 8th. http://www.columbusflavors.com/holidays/national-molasses-bar-day/

Boy Scout Anniversary Day The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is one of the largest youth organizations in the United States, with 2.7 million youth members and over 1 million adult volunteers.[2] Since its founding in 1910 as part of the international Scout Movement, more than 110 million Americans have been members of the BSA.[3]

The BSA's goal is to train youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and, at older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations. For younger members, the Scout method is part of the program to inculcate typical Scouting values such as trustworthiness, good citizenship, and outdoors skills, through a variety of activities such as camping, aquatics, and hiking.[4][5] The BSA has several locations in Florida, Minnesota, New Mexico, and West Virginia in the United States and Manitoba and Ontario in Canada that allow Scouts to participate in the various aforementioned outdoor activities which are collectively called high-adventure bases. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boy_Scouts_of_America

Four steps for Anthem customers to protect themselves after the breach

The attackers who broke into Anthem Inc. databases absconded with details associated with 80 million people but didn't steal medical records. Still, they took enough personal information that in the wrong hands could make life miserable for affected consumers.

According to identity theft experts, the toxic combination of Social Security numbers, birthdays, addresses, and e-mail addresses is a potent one for carrying out a raft of scams.

The breach itself could be used to trick consumers into giving up even more personal data to bad guys. Now that Anthem has alerted tens of millions of consumers that the company will be in touch if their records were compromised, those members should be on the lookout for correspondence.

National Fettuccine Alfredo Day Fettuccine Facts:
A. Fettuccine is a flat thick noodle made of flour and egg.(literally meaning “little ribbons” in Italian)
B. The original recipe for Fettuccine “Alfredo” is pasta made from fettucine noodles tossed with one part parmesan cheese and 3 parts butter. Alfredo sauce is the emulsified liquids that form the smooth and rich coating on the pasta.
C. It was named by an Italian restaurateur at his restaurant Alfredo on the Via della Scrofa in Rome in 1914. Said to have been a dish he made at home but for years was too reluctant to sell to his customers because it was so rich.
D. Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford, early movie stars, fell in love with the dish while on their honeymoon in 1927. This helped to make the dish and Alfredo world famous.

Dump Your Significant Jerk Day On this week's How To, in honour of the holiday of tough love -- you know, Dump Your Significant Jerk Week -- we have your solution on how to break up with your not-so loved one nicely.

At least 76 per cent of women contemplate dumping a guy after four months of dating, according to this week's Howcast video. So if you and your partner hooked up in the fall, now can be the time when the cons start outweighing the pros in your relationship.

To prep yourself for a breakup, grab a mirror to practice what you're going to say. This way, you can hopefully avoid slip-ups, but even more importantly, build your confidence -- especially if you're dealing with an over-confident jerk.

And since honesty is the key to a good relationship, you'll also want to depend on it for a smooth ending. The video above has a four-step system on what to keep in mind, and why dumping someone over Facebook, Twitter, text or email is a no-no in Dumpsville. http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2012/02/07/how-to-break-up-with-someone_n_1260911.html

Ice Cream For Breakfast Day The holiday was invented on a snowy winter day in the 1960s by Florence Rappaport in Rochester, New York.[1] The mother to six children, it was her youngest two, Ruth (now Kramer) and Joe Rappaport, who inspired her on a cold and snowy February morning. To entertain them, she declared it to be Ice Cream For Breakfast Day. She explained, "It was cold and snowy and the kids were complaining that it was too cold to do anything. So I just said, 'Let's have ice cream for breakfast.'"[2] The next year, they reminded her of the day and a tradition began. The exact year of the first ICFBD is unrecorded, but it is speculated to be 1966, when a huge blizzard hit Rochester in late January, dumping several feet of snow on Rochester and shutting down schools.[3] When the siblings grew up, they held parties and introduced the tradition to friends while in college, and the tradition began to spread.[4] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_Cream_for_Breakfast_Day

National Chopsticks
 Day Try it, over a billion people like it! You may think that eating with sticks is an odd thing to do, but consider this. Chopsticks have been around thousands of years while the fork and spoon were not introduced to North America until the early 1700’s and not common used until around the time of the American revolution. Before then people or all economic condition would eat with their hands or drink from their bowls. Chopstick is an efficient way to get food to from the plate to your month. No hands necessary. http://foodimentary.com/2012/02/06/national-chopsicks-day/

Lame Duck Day Lame Duck Day is celebrated on February 6th of each year in remembrance of the Twentieth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The amendment reduced the amount of time between Election Day and the beginning of Presidential, Vice Presidential and Congressional terms. Originally, the terms of the President, the Vice President and the in-coming elected Congress began on March 4, four months after the elections were held. While this lapse was a practical necessity at the end of the 18th century, when any newly-elected official might require several months to put his affairs in order and then undertake an arduous journey from his home to the national capital, it eventually had the effect of impeding the functioning of government in the modern age. http://www.nationalwhateverday.com/whatever-days/february/lame-duck-day/

International Day of Zero Tolerance to Female Genital Mutilation Female genital mutilation (FGM) comprises all procedures that involve altering or injuring the female genitalia for non-medical reasons - , and is recognized internationally as a violation of the human rights of girls and women.

It reflects deep-rooted inequality between the sexes, and constitutes an extreme form of discrimination against women and girls. The practice also violates their rights to health, security and physical integrity, their right to be free from torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, and their right to life when the procedure results in death.

Although primarily concentrated in 29 countries in Africa and the Middle East, FGM is a universal problem and is also practiced in some countries in Asia and Latin America. FGM continues to persist amongst immigrant populations living in Western Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand.

Though the practice has persisted for over a thousand years, programmatic evidence suggests that FGM/C can end in one generation. UNFPA, jointly with UNICEF, leads the largest global programme to accelerate the abandonment of FGM. The programme currently focuses on 17 African countries and also supports regional and global initiatives.http://www.un.org/en/events/femalegenitalmutilationday/

Adlai Stevenson Day Adlai Ewing Stevenson II (/ˈædleɪ/; February 5, 1900 – July 14, 1965) was an American politician and diplomat, noted for his intellectual demeanor, eloquent public speaking, and promotion of liberal causes in the Democratic Party. He served as the 31st Governor of Illinois, and received the Democratic Party's nomination for president in 1952 even though he had not campaigned in the primaries. John Frederick Martin says party leaders selected him "because he was more moderate on civil rights than Estes Kefauver, yet nonetheless acceptable to labor and urban machines—so a coalition of southern, urban, and labor leaders fell in behind his candidacy in Chicago."[2]

Stevenson was defeated in a landslide by Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower in the 1952 presidential election. In 1956 he was again the Democratic presidential nominee against Eisenhower, but was defeated in an even bigger landslide. He sought the Democratic presidential nomination for a third time in the election of 1960, but was defeated by Senator John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts. After his election, President Kennedy appointed Stevenson as the Ambassador to the United Nations; he served from 1961 to 1965. He died on July 14, 1965 in London after suffering a heart attack. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adlai_Stevenson_II

Weatherperson’s Day February 5 is National Weatherperson's Day, commemorating the birth of John Jeffries in 1744. Jeffries, one of America's first weather observers, began taking daily weather observations in Boston in 1774 and he took the first balloon observation in 1784. This is a day to recognize the men and women who collectively provide Americans with the best weather, water, and climate forecasts and warning services of any nation.

Many of us take weather information for granted. Turn on a light switch, you get light. Turn on your television or radio, or check a web site and you get the weather forecast. It’s easy to forget that around the clock, dedicated meteorologists and weathercasters are vigilantly creating forecasts to help you plan your day, and issuing warnings to help keep you safe. http://www.crh.noaa.gov/lsx/?n=wxmanday

Homemade Soup Day Soup is an easy vehicle for nourishment to reach your aching body. With a little planning, you can be enjoying a steaming bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup in almost the same amount of time it takes to pop a pre-made one in the microwave. Here are some tips:

Make soup when you’re healthy and freeze it in individual serving sizes. At the first sign of a throat tickle, move one portion from the freezer to the fridge.
Cream-based soups freeze better than broth-based soups, but both will keep in the fridge for a few days.
Make your own broth. Making vegetable or chicken broth is easier than you think and will pay off in the long run. With homemade broth, chicken noodle soup becomes as easy as heating some broth and frozen vegetables up in a pot and adding noodles.
Soups don’t have to cook for hours and hours. If you don’t have the time but want all the flavor, try roasting your vegetables before adding them to the broth or liquid. http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2013/02/04/national-homemade-soup-day/

National Stuffed Mushroom Day February 4 marks National Stuffed Mushroom Day! Who knew?

Facebook's Birthday Facebook (formerly [thefacebook]) is an online social networking service headquartered in Menlo Park, California. Its website was launched on February 4, 2004, by Mark Zuckerberg with his college roommates and fellow Harvard University students Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes.[7] The founders had initially limited the website's membership to Harvard students, but later expanded it to colleges in the Boston area, the Ivy League, and Stanford University. It gradually added support for students at various other universities and later to high-school students. Facebook now allows anyone who claims to be at least 13 years old to become a registered user of the website.[8] Its name comes from a colloquialism for the directory given to it by American universities students.[9] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Facebook

National Carrot Cake Day While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

Bugs Bunny would go nuts for this - February 3 is National Carrot Cake Day!

Carrot cake may be one of our favorite ways to simultaneously cure sugar cravings and have a healthy (and unnoticeable) serving of vegetables.

During medieval times, carrots were used to sweeten cakes and desserts because actual sweeteners were rare and outrageously expensive. Carrots are second only to the sugar beet on the sweet vegetable scale, so our ancestors knew what they were doing. http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2012/02/03/breakfast-buffet-national-carrot-cake-day/

Four Chaplains Memorial Day The Four Chaplains, also sometimes referred to as the "Immortal Chaplains" or the "Dorchester Chaplains" were four United States Army chaplains who gave their lives to save other civilian and military personnel as the troop ship USAT Dorchester sank on February 3, 1943, during World War II. They helped other soldiers board lifeboats and gave up their own life jackets when the supply ran out.[1] The chaplains joined arms, said prayers, and sang hymns as they went down with the ship. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Chaplains

Heavenly Hash Day

National Pisco Sour Day A Pisco Sour is a cocktail typical of South American cuisine.[A] The drink's name comes from pisco, which is its base liquor, and the cocktail term sour, in reference to sour citrus juice and sweetener components. The Peruvian Pisco Sour uses Peruvian pisco as the base liquor and adds Key lime (or lemon) juice, syrup, ice, egg white, and Angostura bitters. The Chilean version is similar, but uses Chilean pisco and Pica lime, and excludes the bitters and egg white. Other variants of the cocktail include those created with fruits like pineapple or plants such as coca leaves.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pisco_Sour

Crepe Day

Groundhog Day Groundhog Day (Canadian French: Jour de la Marmotte; Pennsylvania German: Grundsaudaag, Murmeltiertag) is a day celebrated on February 2. According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then spring will come early; if it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will persist for six more weeks.[1]

Modern customs of the holiday involve celebrations where early morning festivals are held to watch the groundhog emerging from its burrow.

In southeastern Pennsylvania, Groundhog Lodges (Grundsow Lodges) celebrate the holiday with fersommlinge,[2] social events in which food is served, speeches are made, and one or more g'spiel (plays or skits) are performed for entertainment. The Pennsylvania German dialect is the only language spoken at the event, and those who speak English pay a penalty, usually in the form of a nickel, dime, or quarter per word spoken, with the money put into a bowl in the center of the table.[3]

The largest Groundhog Day celebration is held in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, with Punxsutawney Phil. Groundhog Day, already a widely recognized and popular tradition,[4] received widespread attention as a result of the 1993 film Groundhog Day.[5] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Groundhog_Day

Marmot Day Marmot Day is an Alaskan holiday established to celebrate marmots and Alaskan culture. Although local festivals have been part and parcel of frontier life for decades, Marmot Day became an official holiday on April 18, 2009, when the 26th Alaska State Legislature officially passed Senate Bill 58.[1] Marmot Day is celebrated on February 2, replacing Groundhog Day with a holiday honoring Alaska's marmots. From Juneau[2] to Anchorage[3] to Fairbanks,[4] and all the cities in between, Marmot Day has become an Alaskan institution. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marmot_Day

Sled Dog Day Running through snow all day, every day, pulling a sled that can weigh hundreds if not thousands of pounds—that’s a sled dog’s job. Don’t you think they might deserve a little recognition? February 2nd is the official holiday of the sled dog that we can safely say man would not have managed very well at all without.

The History of Sled Dog Day

Sled dogs are thought to have evolved in the mountainous regions of Northern Asia over 35,000 years ago, but are thought to have started actually pulling sleds for people about 3,000 years ago, when hunting and fishing communities were forced to move further up north to Siberia. From there, they made their way to Lapland, Alaska, Canada and even Greenland. Historical references to actual dog harnesses far outdate the first European contact with the native peoples of Alaska and Canada. In fact, it was the Alaskan gold rush that really got the American population interested in the use of sled dogs as a form of transportation, as most gold camps were only accessible by dogsled in the winter months. In fact, for a long while, dogsleds were the only relatively dependable way of transporting anything in the harsh Alaska and Yukon weather conditions, until airplanes finally took over in the 1930s. Dogsleds were also used to patrol western Alaska as late as World War II. After that, mushing became largely recreational. One of sled dogs’ most impressive achievements was the 1925 serum run from Nome to Nenana. With a diptheria threatening the lives of people in Nome and the serum needed being 1,100 kilometers (700 miles) away in the town of Nenana, hundreds of people may have died if not for the 20 dogsled teams that worked together to relay the serum to Nome. In the end, the serum reached Nome in only 6 days, saving the lives of many. Also, the first Arctic explorers were men with sled dogs. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/sled-dog-day/
