November 21: First Hot Air Balloon Anniversary!

Today in 1783, the first hot air balloon lifted off from Paris, France – changing human conveyance forever. Hot air balloons were actually the first successful form of human-carrying flight, which begs the question: what were the unsuccessful ones?

January 02: Sci-fi day, ISaac Asimov's birthday

It’s Sci-Fi Day, and the birthday of one of the greatest sci-fi authors that ever walked the earth – Isaac Asimov. Is that an alien pig in there? Is there piggy life on other planets?! I want to believe...

January 13: Rubber Duck Day

That yellow, grinning waterfowl, the rubber duck, has been a bathtime favorite since the 1800s. They’ve even been inducted into the Toy Hall of Fame! Although they’re not considered to be angry, I still would not recommend messing with this one. Easy there big fella.

January 19: Popcorn Day

People have been eating popcorn from as far back as 4700 B.C., and for good reason – it’s just delicious! A tiny explosion takes place inside every kernel as it pops. I can think of a few other things that could use some popping *AHEMpigs*.

February 14: Valentine's day

Ahhhh, love is in the air, folks. It's Valentine's Day! They say whoever is struck with Cupid's arrow will be filled with uncontrollable desire! I wonder if the same is true for Cupig's arrows. Best not to leave it to chance! However, we may be able to use this pig-filled predicament to our advantage. Hint hint.

February 16: Rio Open

Today begins the second Rio open, and the pigs are getting in on the tennis action! However, judging by the chair umpire, I’m expecting the birds will be the real victors. Check out Rio Open’s official page here for more info on the event!.

February 27: Polar Bear day

Polar bears require sea ice to find prey and survive. As the sea ice melts, the polar bears are put in danger. Save the polar bears by reducing carbon emissions!

March 3: NASA 100yo anniversary (started as NACA in 1915)

On this day in 1915, the U.S. government founded the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) to advance aviation technology through research. Along the way, they engineered aircraft that broke the sound barrier, and flew to the edge of space. NACA was replaced by NASA in 1958, and we all know what happened next! Visit NASA.gov to see what they’re up to nowadays!

March 9: First discovery of gold in California

The California gold rush took off after James W. Marshall’s discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill in 1848. However, the first documented discovery of gold in California occurred years earlier. As the story goes, on March 9th 1842 Francisco Lopez was napping under a tree somewhere near Los Angeles, dreaming of floating on a pool of gold. When he awoke, he dug up some wild onions, and attached to the onions were flakes of gold! Read more here!

March 17: Submarine day

Today is St. Patrick’s Day! And it was also St. Patrick’s Day on this day in 1898 when John Philip Holland demonstrated his underwater vessel, the Holland VI, for the US Navy. The demonstration must have been successful because the Holland VI became the first modern submarine commissioned by the US Navy and boom – we get Submarine Day!

March 27: Cherry blossom / Hanami

Spring is in the air (in the northern hemisphere at least), and the cherry trees are blossoming. They’re especially beautiful in Japan where blossom viewing, or Hanami, is a national pastime, and the blossoms themselves are abundant. Keep an eye on the blossom forecast, grab a blanket and some friends, and have a picnic under a cherry tree!

April 03: Easter

It’s Easter! Bring on the chocolate, and the eggs, and the chocolate eggs, and the Easter baskets, and the chocolate Easter baskets, and the Easter Bunny, and the chocolate Easter Bunnies, and the marshmallow chicks, and the chocolate-covered marshmallow chicks, and the witches! Witches? Witches.

April 12: Yuri Gagarin flight

On April 12th 1961, Vostok 1 was launched into space with cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin inside in the first ever manned spaceflight. It only took one hour and 48 minutes for the Vostok spacecraft to orbit the earth, but we will celebrate the monumental achievement for many years to come!

April 22: Earth Day

The first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970. Wait a sec. That means Earth Day is 45 years old! Whoa! Here’s to 45 years of saving the planet! Check out EarthDay.org for more info about what’s happening on Earth Day this year. Maybe there’s something you can do to help protect our precious planet!

May 01: May Day

May Day! May Day! It’s May Day! May Day celebrates spring in the northern hemisphere (sorry Argentina). Many different cultures celebrate May Day in their own way. For example, in Finland, festivities include epic picnics, eating donuts, and drinking sima, all while donning a student cap. Not too bad!

May 05: Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican Army’s victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla which occurred on May 5th 1862. What it does NOT celebrate is Mexico’s Independence Day which is on September 16th – but you knew that already. Although Cinco de Mayo is a minor holiday in Mexico, particularly in the state of Puebla, it’s kind of a big deal in the USA where it’s a celebration of Mexican heritage.

May 13: leprechaun day

Today is dedicated to those mischievous little green guys. No, not the pigs. I’m talking about leprechauns! These solitary, diminutive shoemakers have their origin in Irish folklore. As the story goes, catch a leprechaun, and they have to give up their pot of gold! That’s pretty cruel now that I think of it. If you see one today, give them a high-five for me – or maybe a not so high five...

May 22: Goth day

Break out your blackest clothes, and drop the needle on your favorite reverb-heavy post-punk jam – it’s World Goth Day! Let’s take a day to appreciate this most somber of subcultures, and at the same time fight against prejudice, discrimination, and intolerance for all subcultures – well, unless those subcultures are based on prejudice, discrimination, and intolerance...

May 29: End of middle ages

Some consider May 29th, 1453 to be the end of the middle ages, but every end is a new beginning. On that day, Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Empire sending Greek scholars scattering across Europe. With them went their knowledge, and a rebirth of Greek-style learning. Thus began the renaissance, and the rest is history. Well, this whole thing is history, but you get the point.

June 8: World Oceans Day

The world ocean covers about 71% of the Earth’s surface, contains 97% of the Earth’s water, is home to an estimated 2 million species, and is integral to all life on Earth. So hey, why not take a day on June 8th to appreciate that huge hunk of our hydrosphere, and learn how we can keep our oceans awesome!

June 12: Magic day

It’s Magic Day! This one goes out to everyone from great wizards who can conquer foul beasts to your uncle who can summon coins from your ears. Learn some magic for yourself and impress your friends (or your nephews and nieces). Abra-cadabra!

June 20-21: Midsummer

Midsummer is a celebration around the longest day of the year! In Finland (where, at this point, it’s barely even BEGINsummer if you ask me – brrrr!) festivities include relaxing in summer cottages, sometimes maypoles, and bonfires under the midnight sun. Sweet!

July 14: Pandemonium day

Being such organized, peaceful, and upstanding human beings can be really stressful. That’s why we have Pandemonium Day – a day to let loose and embrace the unexpected and chaotic. But just to be clear, we’re talking about the “wear-underpants-on-the-outside-of-your-trousers” chaos or the “eat-a-different-breakfast-cereal” chaos. Not the “harm-other-people-and destroy-property” chaos. Got it? Good. Go nuts! Hamburger.

July 20: Pig Days 1 yr.

It seems like only a year ago that we began celebrating special days throughout the year with Pig Days – probably because it was exactly a year ago today that we began celebrating special days throughout the year with Pig Days. So that makes today our first anniversary! Hooray!
