Banana Cream Pie Day

A banana cream pie fulfills a lot of needs, all in one go. It’s sweet, sticky, crunchy and soft, all at the same time. It’s thought that Elvis was a big fan of this pudding, which is justification enough to have Banana Cream Pie Day.

Although cream puddings have been around for centuries, banana cream pie is a relatively recent invention. Traditionally, these pies are made with a layer of crushed graham crackers or digestive biscuits topped with sliced bananas and a custard filling. Some people prefer to put the bananas on the top, and others like to caramelise them before adding them to the pie for an extra hit of luxury.

This pie can be simple or complicated, according to the family recipe, but the perfect banana cream pie has to be finished off with whipped cream and then crushed pecans or pistachio nuts. Yum!

Old Stuff Day

Old Stuff Day. What’s it about? Well, it’s pretty self-explanatory, really. It’s about old stuff.

It’s a day to be nostalgic: Find some old photographs, trinkets and toys, then share happy memories with friends and family over a coffee.

It’s a day to appreciate the vintage: Visit a junk shop or antique store and find yourself something interesting, be it a gramophone, a paisley hat or an original Han Solo action figure still in its original packaging (good luck with that last one).

It’s a day to declutter: Sort through all of the old stuff in your home. Do you still need it all? If there’s something you can get rid of, don’t just throw it in the junk; it could make a thoughtful gift, or at the very least you could help a charity store by donating it to them.

It’s a day to learn: The History Channel. Wikipedia. Genealogy. Family stories. Public libraries. Books, books and more books! There’s so much to discover, so best get started!

Most importantly, it’s a day to reflect: We are the present, but our kids are the future, and as they grow it’s our world that will be considered old. CDs and DVDs will certainly become old stuff, and perhaps printed newspapers will too, what with recent developments in glass technologies. But you never know what other everyday objects will eventually become antiquated; perhaps one day the computer will seem outdated and cumbersome as humankind connects via some kind of thought-based WiFi. It’s amazing how quickly science fiction becomes reality, so let’s appreciate the old stuff before we join its ranks!

Dr. Seuss Day

We truly love him
in a house.
We truly love him
with a mouse.
We truly love him
here or there.
We truly love him
We truly love the silly goose.
We truly love old Dr. Seuss!

Today is Dr. Seuss Day, a full twenty-four hours to make a mess with the Cat in the Hat, dance around with the Fox in Sox, hear a Who with Horton, count the red and blue fish, help the Grinch see the error of his ways, and listen to Sam I Am’s friend complain about his dish of green eggs and ham, the ungrateful hairball!

Theodor Seuss Geisel, commonly known by his pen name Dr. Seuss, was a writer, poet and cartoonist. Though best known as a children’s author (he released a whopping forty-six books for tykes), his career also saw him work as an illustrator for advertising campaigns and a political cartoonist during the Second World War. He was also a true perfectionist, known to discard 95% of his material before settling on a theme for a new book, sometimes spending up to a year writing a single story, and preferring payment upon completion, rather than in advance.

March 2nd is a celebration of his life and works, as it was on this day in 1904 that he entered the world. Having lived eighty-seven years and made an incredible impact on numerous generations, he died in 1991 at his home in La Jolla, California. His many bizarre, colourful and zany tales are still cherished by young and old alike, and, having been translated into more than twenty languages, are read all across the world every single day.

If you fancy paying a fitting tribute, we recommend dressing up with a friend as Thing 1 and Thing 2. All you need are blue wigs and red jumpsuits. Oh, and boundless energy!
