Today we celebrate:

National Whipped Cream Day – Born on this day in 1914, Aaron Soffer “Bunny” Lapin (do not ask me who gave him that nickname) became the founder of Reddi-Wip. He was the first one to think of putting whipped cream into an aerosol can, and I'm sure we are all grateful to him. Although some consider this holiday to be insensitive and in bad taste given the state of hunger and malnutrition in the world, however you could make that complaint about lots of other food days on any given day of the year.

National Bird Day - Nearly one-third of the world's parrot species face extinction along with 12 percent of the world's nearly 10,000 bird species. Find a lot of other fascinating information on their website where they are celebrating this day for the 13th year. One thing they hope to accomplish is to spread awareness of the problems of the captive bird trade. We have laws to protect our native birds from captivity, but nothing prevents anyone from owning and selling captive birds from other countries.
