Today we celebrate:

National Vanilla Cupcake Day – Not just any old cupcakes, no....only vanilla cupcakes are allowed.

International Tongue Twister Day
– Celebrated on the second Sunday in November, this is a day to twist your tongue in a knot. Teach your children your favorite tongue twisters and see if you can trip them up.

Marine Corps Birthday –
On this day in 1775, the Marine Corps was created by the Second Continental Congress. They served on land and at sea and were involved in many important military operations in the Revolutionary War. After the war (1783), they were disbanded until they were reformed in 1798. As far as I know, they have been in continuous service to the United States since then.

Sesame Street Day – First broadcast on this day in 1969, Sesame Street is a show that I loved as a child and was thrilled to allow my children to watch when they were young. It almost felt like coming home when I tuned back in to see what was new and what I remembered from when I was a kid. This day was established in 2009 by the Mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg. I don't know if the rest of the country celebrates it, but if they don't, they should.

Windows Day –
On this day in 1983, Microsoft announced their new product called Windows version 1.0. This was their graphic operating system that was intended to compete with other systems like Apple. It was not released to the public until 1985 and didn't become widely accepted until version 3.0 was released.

National Forget-Me-Not Day – This is a day to keep your loved ones in your heart. We don't want to forget those we love, whether they are living or deceased. You can celebrate by sending Forget-Me-Not flower seeds to your family and friends or a card that says you're thinking of them. If the cemeteries will allow it, you could plant Forget-Me-Not flowers at the graves of your loved ones as well.

To celebrate today, salute any Marines you encounter today and wish them a Happy Birthday. Then watch Sesame Street whether you have any children or not while you eat some vanilla cupcakes, look up some good tongue twisters on your Windows computer to try out and send your loved ones some Forget-Me-Not seeds.
