International Mother Language Day – On this day in 1952, students demonstrating for recognition of their mother language, Bangla (one of two Pakistani languages) were shot and killed by police in Dhaka. So, nearly 50 years later, in 1999, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization chose this day to promote the preservation of all languages used by people all over the world. So feel free to speak your mother language today. I am.
National Sticky Bun Day – I recently found a gluten free cinnamon bun/sticky bun recipe that is, in my opinion, HEAVENLY! It’s online so everyone can try it. If you don’t have to eat gluten free, celebrating today will be much easier. Just head to your favorite bakery and enjoy.
Card Reading Day – This is a day to dig out all those cards you kept for whatever reason and stuffed in a drawer or a box somewhere. Read them again today and reminisce over good times. I have all of the Mother's Day cards my children and my husband have ever given me so I'm going to be looking at those today.
