Say thanks to a volunteer fire-fighter for all their hardwork
Peculiar People Day is in honor of uniquely different people. Un-ordinary, extraordinary, unusual, strange, odd, uncommon, intriguing, different, abnormal, and quirky.... These are all things that we think of to describe the word ""peculiar"". Most of these characteristics can be viewed as good, or not so good. Today is a day to look for the good in your peculiar acquaintances.
If you are peculiar, this is your day to be honored and appreciated. Chances are, you will find something peculiar about yourself, if you look hard enough. If you can't find anything peculiar about yourself, then give some recognition and appreciation to your quirky friends and family.

The history of Bittersweet Chocolate Day is shrouded in the froth of a hot drink. That is to say no one should spend too long thinking about the history of chocolate; it was made for eating.
Bittersweet chocolate is dark chocolate that is sweetened with cane sugar. It may have a touch of vanilla, but never milk. It is thought to have come about because the bitter taste of chocolate didn’t suit the European taste palette.
The word chocolate is derived from “xocol?tl” an Aztec word which means “bitter water”. Chocolate itself is derived from the hot frothy drink brought to Europe from the Aztecs. It took about 200 years to figure out how to solidify it and for the first chocolate ‘bar’ to be created around 1839.
So take a moment to give bittersweet chocolate a try, but remember not to spend too long thinking of its history.
