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 teenaged 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 multiple times.  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.

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.

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.

To celebrate today, binge on Dr. Who all day while you eat cranberries and cashews and drink espresso.  During breaks between episodes, explain the Fibonacci Sequence to your children.
