Today we celebrate:

National Popcorn Day – today is my daughter's favorite day. She lives on popcorn. Try some fun popcorn related activities with the kids today. Decorate the house with popcorn strings, mix popcorn with different ingredients like chocolate or cinnamon and see what it tastes like. Fill a container with popcorn and guess how many kernels are in it. Have popcorn fights. Your imagination (and tolerance for messes) is your only boundary.

Tin Can Day – the tin can was patented in 1810 by Peter Durand. The can opener was patented by William Lyman in 1870. Hmmmm. Does anyone else see a 60 year problem here?
To celebrate today, fill a tin can with a few dozen unpopped popcorn kernels, put plastic wrap over it and secure with a rubber band. Now shake it and you have a musical instrument that you can use to express your enjoyment of the bowl of popped popcorn that you are eating.
