Today we celebrate:

National Bavarian Cream Pie Day – This is a pie that has a cooked egg custard filling in a pie shell with a whipped cream topping. Oh, boy! I want some!

Tie One On Day – I know what this sounds like, but you are incorrect. Today we are tying on an apron and celebrating all the generations of women who came before us. Women over the last several thousands years are best represented by the image of the apron. And in the spirit of all those women who were well known for sharing what they had with those who had less, do something to help someone in need today.

Chanukah or Hanukkah - This Jewish celebration comes early this year. It begins at sundown this evening and will continue until sundown on Thursday, December 5th. The first candle on the Menorah is lit at nightfall this evening. The purpose of this celebration is to remember the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem around 200 BCE.

Pins and Needles Day – On this day in 1937, a famous play called Pins And Needles opened on Broadway. It is famous because it was the first, and possibly the only Pro-Labor play at a time when Unions were struggling to get a foothold among the people.

To celebrate today, tie on an apron, make a Bavarian Cream Pie, give it to someone in need and spend the rest of the day watching Pins and Needles. There's a revival starring Barbra Streisand if you can't find any recordings of the original. This evening light your first Menorah candle.
