  • National DNA Day April 25
    on June 7, 2022 at 12:09 pm

    <p>We have all heard stories about children switched at birth, but this story takes quite an interesting twist. When Lydia Fairchild, a pregnant mother of two found herself in an economic pinch, she decided to apply for government assistance. Imagine her surprise when a DNA test revealed that her children were not her own. She was so upset by the implications of fraud that she asked for a government witness to be present at the birth of her third child. Now here&Atilde;&#131;&Acirc;&cent;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#130;&not;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#132;&cent;s where it gets strange. An immediate test of the newborn confirmed that the child was not Lydia&Atilde;&#131;&Acirc;&cent;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#130;&not;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#132;&cent;s either. This case had experts so baffled until science determined that Lydia was a &Atilde;&#131;&Acirc;&cent;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#130;&not;&Atilde;&#130;&Aring;&#147;chimera.&Atilde;&#131;&Acirc;&cent;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#130;&not;&Atilde;&#130;&Acirc;&#157; She herself had absorbed her own twin while developing in utero and it was her twin&Atilde;&#131;&Acirc;&cent;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#130;&not;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#132;&cent;s DNA that showed up during testing. On National DNA Day, celebrate the weird science that may only reveal one piece of the truth. <a href=”http://nationaldaycalendar.com/national-dna-day-april-25/” target=”_blank”>NATIONAL DNA DAY – April 25 – National Day Calendar</a></p>

  • National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day April 12
    on June 7, 2022 at 11:45 am

    <p>Welcome to April 12th on the National Day Calendar. The invention of the grilled cheese sandwich is arguably the greatest thing since, well, sliced bread. And while folks have been toasting bread with cheese since Ancient Roman times, the American variety took off in the 1920s with the invention of the first bread slicer. Just prior to that JL Kraft and Brothers began making its processed cheese, or as the English called it, rat trap cheese. They are, of course, partial to their cheddar. But here in the States, the grilled cheese sandwich took off with these two inventions and today theyre considered classic comfort food. If youre in the mood to be fancy, add some sliced apples, bacon or brie. But whatever youre craving on National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day, enjoy a crunchy, melty morsel of comfort food deliciousness, with or without the rat trap cheese.

  • National Zoo Lovers Day April 8
    on June 7, 2022 at 11:36 am

    <p>Welcome to April 8th on the National Day Calendar. The world is full of amazing animals and the easiest way of viewing this world is to visit your local zoo. People have been fascinated by animals for centuries with the oldest public zoo opening in Vienna in 1752. The Holy Roman Emperor himself traveled around the globe to find the exotic animals that would be displayed there. Here in the United States, the Central Park Zoo began as an accidental menagerie when a bear cub was left at the park in 1859. The bear attracted visitors and eventually more exotic animals turned up at Central Park. A formal zoo charter was granted in 1864 and even President Lincoln donated animals. With about 2,400 zoos in the United State alone, lions and tigers and bears are practically in your own backyard. On National Zoo Lovers Day, celebrate a trip around the animal kingdom in one easy stroll. Im Marlo Anderson with the National Day Calendar.

    <p>Welcome to April 30th on the National Day Calendar. What&Atilde;&#131;&Acirc;&cent;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#130;&not;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#132;&cent;s up, Doc? Today we celebrate one of the most famous cartoon characters – that wascally wabbit otherwise known as Bugs Bunny. Since his debut in the 1940&Atilde;&#131;&Acirc;&cent;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#130;&not;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#132;&cent;s cartoon &Atilde;&#131;&Acirc;&cent;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#130;&not;&Atilde;&#130;&Aring;&#147;A Wild Hare,&Atilde;&#131;&Acirc;&cent;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#130;&not;&Atilde;&#130;&Acirc;&#157; Bugs has appeared in more films than any other animated character and even has his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Everyone knows and loves this wise-guy rabbit with the Brooklyn accent, except of course for Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd. These guys are off plotting revenge for being the butt of all his jokes. Or maybe they&Atilde;&#131;&Acirc;&cent;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#130;&not;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#132;&cent;re just jealous that they don&Atilde;&#131;&Acirc;&cent;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#130;&not;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#132;&cent;t have their own National Days. Cue up some Looney Tunes and grab some carrots with a side of sarcasm. It&Atilde;&#131;&Acirc;&cent;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#130;&not;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#132;&cent;s National Bugs Bunny Day!

  • National Arbor Day April 29
    on June 7, 2022 at 7:13 am

    <p>Welcome to April 29th on the National Day Calendar. The way that animals and plants adapt to their environments is truly remarkable. And one of the strangest cases is the Monkey Puzzle Tree from Chile, which has been around for about 200 million years. The thing that&Atilde;&#131;&Acirc;&cent;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#130;&not;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#132;&cent;s helped it last so long is its unique adaptation. Because it grew near volcanoes, the Monkey Puzzle Tree developed fire-resistant bark. The name comes from the fact that its branches are very spiky and would cause monkeys to pause before climbing one. Although individual trees can live up to 700 years, the species ended up on the endangered list due to logging and mining throughout the Andes Mountains. On Arbor Day, take notice of the trees around you&Atilde;&#131;&Acirc;&cent;&Atilde;&#130;&acirc;&#130;&not;&Atilde;&#130;&Acirc;&brvbar;no matter how unique or ordinary they may be.
