Today we celebrate:

National Chocolate-Covered Cashews Day – I love cashews but oddly enough, I didn't know they came covered with chocolate. I will have to seek some out.

Kindergarten Day – Today we celebrate the birthday of Friedrich Froebe who was born on this day 1782 and started the first kindergarten in 1837. It was a very popular concept but the government chose to stop it in 1851. A year later Friedrich died and so wasn't able to see that his idea was resurrected in Germany in 1860 and in 1873 the first public kindergarten was opened in St. Louis Missouri

National Drive It Day – Always on the Sunday nearest to April 23rd, this day celebrates April 23, 1900 and the 64 cars that left London and embarked upon the Thousand Mile Trial. Forty-six of the cars finally returned to London on May 12th. Don't forget that back then cars were very new and not accustomed to traveling that far. Hence the 18 cars that didn't make it back in time to be counted in the trial.

To celebrate today, drive your kids to kindergarten and then spend the rest of the day munching on chocolate-covered cashews.
