What are we celebrating today? October 6, 2021


October 6, 2021 — Every day has something to celebrate!

Here is what we are celebrating today:

International Walk to School Day” – Does anyone do this anymore. Grandparents’ stories of having to walk to school uphill (both ways) in a blinding snowstorm are sadly starting to slip away.

“Noodle Day” – The first reference to noodles goes back to 25 B.C. Today, noodles are one of the world’s most popular foods, but are they best eating by using a fork or a spoon?

“Orange Wine Day” – No, it is not made from orange fruit, but from white grapes that are fermented with red wine grape skin contact, giving the wine an orange or amber color.
