November 4, 2021 — Every day has something to celebrate!
Here is what we are celebrating today:
“Candy Day” – Why this is not celebrated on Halloween is confusing, but today we celebrate hard and chewy candy. According to YouGov research, America’s favorite candy is M&Ms, with a positivity ranking of 85%. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are a close second at 83% positivity.
“Men Make Dinner Day” – Remember, guys, ordering take-out isn’t actually “making dinner.”
“Use Your Common-Sense Day” – This concept is credited to Aristotle in his studies of animal minds and sense perceptions. 17th-century. French writer and philosopher Voltaire may have stated it best, “Common sense is not so common.”
“Stout Day” – Celebrating the craft beer revolution.
