Today we celebrate:

National Cashew Day – One of my favorite kinds of nuts, get ready for a nutty day today.

National Espresso Day - The Espresso was created in 1901 by Luigi Bezzera who wished to give his employees a super shot of caffeine in a short amount of time to make them more productive.  He created a machine that quickly made this very strong cup of coffee and sold it to Desidero Pavoni who mass produced them all over Europe.

Dr. Who Day – Today is the 51st Anniversary of the first time Doctor Who was aired on television on this day in 1963.  This is a show that my teenage daughter fell in love with a few years ago and I admit that I enjoy watching it also, although I have only watched a few episodes as opposed to my daughter who has watched every one of the more modern episodes.  She doesn’t care too much for the original series, and after seeing both, I see her point.  But when it first aired, it was pretty high tech for its time and had quite the following.

Fibonacci Day – This day celebrates Leonardo of Pisa, AKA Fibonacci, who created the Fibonacci Sequence which is a pattern where every number in the sequence is the sum of the previous two numbers. Fibonacci was a very important contributor to the field of mathematics.

Eat a Cranberry Day – I believe that cranberries are considered to be a Super Food because they are loaded with antioxidants and fiber. Thanksgiving is coming up so test out a recipe using cranberries today so you can decide if it is Thanksgiving worthy.

To celebrate today, adopt a child who is old enough to understand when you explain the Fibonacci Sequence during the commercials while you watch Dr. Who and eat cranberries together.  I would, however, drink the espresso yourself and not give it to the child unless you want said child to be hopping all over the place in short order.
