Cheese Lovers Day

For some cheese gourmets, the word ‘love’ simply doesn’t go far enough. The time is ripe to unite in praise…

Not everyone can match the fans of the Green Bay Packers football team in Wisconsin, USA, whose yellow, wedge-shaped hats are the ultimate in cheesy headgear. But Cheese Lovers Day is a true moment of celebration. What better time to honour the craft, patience and pleasure in one of our finest creations?

Tastings, cheese rolling, special restaurant menus, costume parties and giant fondues have all been features of the day. If you’re planning your own event, you may find that dairies and shops need only a little persuasion to get involved. What’s more, few foods have such a well-loved place in our language. So invite the most important people you know and put on your ‘guilty pleasures’ playlist – just remember to take lots of photos…

Disc Jockey Day

Everyone knows a DJ; thousands claim that they are one (even if they only mix it up in their bedrooms). Disc Jockey Day is all about celebrating the hard working entertainers that have brought energy to dance floors across the globe. Respect needs to be paid to Disc Jockeys of all levels from velvet suited wedding crooners to international superstars – if you’ve made people dance by playing back to back music, today is the day to hail your talents.

Superstar DJ’ing was born out of the popularity of the Ibiza dance scene and now dance music and DJs are global and the technology has moved way beyond two turntables and a microphone. Itâ??s important to remember the definition of a Disc Jockey, a person who selects and plays recorded music for an audience; therefore almost anyone can be a DJ so get out there and play some music!

Buttercrunch Day

Buttercrunch lovers, today is your day. It's National Buttercrunch Day. Today you can enjoy buttercrunch ice cream, candy, or anything buttercrunch.

Spend the day with one of your favorite snacks. Make it your personal goal to have something with buttercrunch at each meal, and as a snack. Tomorrow, you can return to the diet.

Flower of the Day: Nasturtium

Recipe of the Day: Soup and Salad Croutons


Origin of National Buttercrunch Day:

Without a doubt, this day was created by an individual or group that just loves Buttercrunch. Perhaps, they were so busy enjoying their favorite treat, that they failed to document their creation and get the crunchy credit!

There is no evidence to suggest that this is truly a ""National"" day, which requires an act of congress.

Camcorder Day

Wherever you live in the world, chances are your country has a TV show that manages to both delight and irritate viewers whilst simultaneously making them feel a bit uncomfortable, but also a little more self-confident. We are of course talking about programmes that revolve around home videos, sharing everything from embarrassing prom nights to dangerous stunts gone wrong, with some saucy accidents and Great Danes dressed in cargo pants thrown in for good measure.

Camcorder Day is a tribute to videography of all varieties. Perhaps you’re a professional and enjoy shooting wildlife (with a lens, not a gun), or an extreme sports fan who attaches a GoPro to their helmet before jumping out of a plane. Or maybe you just like recording memories that can be cherished forevermore, from weddings and birthdays, to your son dancing like an Egyptian to the Addams Family movie’s end credits, for reasons that will never become evident. That last one may sound a little unbelievable but one of our web crew made a mistake when he was twelve, one that can’t be erased because he doesn’t know where his mum has hidden the tape.

So get out there and get filming, then upload it to YouTube or Vimeo and share it with the rest of the planet!
