Today we celebrate:

National Sugar Cookie Day – I'm not a huge fan of these, they are a little too ordinary for me. I prefer something a little more unusual in my cookie. But my kids like them so I make them now and then.  And you can jazz them up with some interesting additions like Bourbon Persimmon Frosting.

Martyrdom of The Bab – On this day in 1850 in Persia, the Bab was executed at the age of 31 by the government who feared his rapidly increasing following. Members of the Baha'i Faith hold this day to be holy and talk about the miracles that happened on this day.

To celebrate today, read about the Bab while you eat sugar cookies.
