Today we celebrate:

National Cherry Turnovers Day – Cherry is not my favorite flavor of turnover. I prefer apple, but whoever decides these things didn't ask me before they chose this day.  I know that there are a lot of people out there who do love cherries so you should definitely enjoy this day.

Dream Day Quest and Jubilee – This is the anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have A Dream" speech. The third of three Emancipation Days of Respect which honor the memory of Martin Luther King, Jr. by promoting respect, unity and remembrance.

Radio Commercials Day – On this day in 1922, WEAF of New York sold the first radio commercial spot. This revolutionized the broadcasting world because prior to this, radio stations all over were trying to figure out how to make radio a sustainable enterprise. There were other radio stations that made financial deals with businesses that involved sponsoring a weekly program in exchange for being mentioned now and then, but they weren't official commercials.

Bow Tie Day - In fashion off and on for the last few hundred years, the bow tie still has its' place....with the right outfit, of course. Even women wear bow ties now and then these days. They don't even need a tuxedo to go with it.

To celebrate everything in one day, wear your bow tie and listen to the radio and pay attention to the commercials instead of just tuning them out like I usually do, while you eat cherry turnovers and draft your own “I Have A Dream” speech.
