January 13th

Today is:

NATIONAL RUBBER DUCKY DAY – the earliest patent for a Rubber Ducky was way back in 1928! Fun Fact – in 1992, 28,000 bath toys were lost at sea when a shipping container fell of a ship. I personally think it was the largest Rubber Ducky revolt in history! These bath toys have been washing up on shores as far away as Alaska and have been a great wealth of information with respect ocean currents. GO RUBBER DUCKIES!!!!

NATIONAL STICKER DAY – celebrate everything sticker! Stickers have been around since the 1880s and no teacher can live without them. Think of all the things that you touch in a day that near a sticker. Make a sticker, stick a sticker, admire a sticker.



NATIONAL PEACH MELBA DAY – I actually have no idea if I’ve ever had a peach melba! It sounds delightful – peaches, vanilla ice cream and raspberry sauce – but no, it does not ring a bell. Can’t remember going to someone’s house and hearing them declare “We’re having Peach Melba for dessert”. Anyone? Anyone?


PARASKAVEDKEDATRIAPHOBIA DAY – Try to say THAT three times. In case you’re wondering, it is fear of Friday the 13th Day. It’s not a national day but it is indeed Friday the 13th. The next one is in October. Reactions range from amusement to full-on temporary agoraphobia. Where do you lie on the spectrum?
