Today is National Teddy Bear Day

National Teddy Bear Day is observed annually on September 9th.  We have all had a special cuddly teddy as a child.  Some of us still have our teddy bear from our childhood.  Whether or not you still have your childhood teddy, today is the perfect day to celebrate your childhood friend! The name Teddy Bear originated in 1902 after American President Theodore Roosevelt refused to shoot a bear cub while hunting in Mississippi.  This incident made national news and became a classic through Clifford Berryman’s cartoon of the event published in the Washington Post on November 16th, 1902. The cartoon inspired New York store owner Morris Michtom to create a new toy. Michtom wrote President Roosevelt to ask permission to name the new toy a “Teddy Bear.”

Today is National Beer Lovers Day

Today is National Beer Lovers Day

”Milk is for babies. When you grow up you have to drink beer.”
~ Arnold Schwarzenegger

Beer is one of the world’s most popular alcoholic drink. It has been around for centuries dating as far back as the Egyptians and Romans. Nowadays, Craft beer is a million-dollar business and breweries are becoming the most popular hobby to take part in.

History of Beer Lover’s Day. There are many different ways to brew beer, as the way we process beer has changed and evolved over time. However, this day dedicated to all the different kinds of beer and the celebration of beer lovers. As it is one of the oldest beverages humanity has ever produced, it dates back to the 5th millennium BC in Iran, as ancients were drinking beer upon its discovery. However, our modern society is crazy about beer due to its taste, the way it makes people feel, and the commemorative way in which beer is used. It’s generally used for celebration or a get-together and it is everywhere.

Small facts about beer and beer lovers include the fact that a beer lover or enthusiast is called a cerevisaphile. Another interesting fact is that Germany serves beer ice cream in Popsicle form. Its alcoholic content is less than that found in “classic” beer. Fact three includes how they used mugs with a whistle baked into the rim, the whistle being used to summon the barmaid. It has been suggested this practice gave birth to the phrase “wet your whistle.” The only instance in which beer was prohibited on a legal level was the prohibition period of the 1920s. Lastly, centuries ago in England, pub visitors used a novel innovation that enabled them to get their beer served quickly. But beer has a long and detailed history, but no matter the history, many people do know the fact that beer is good. Source: daysoftheyear.com

Today in History: Patent for the Zipper in 1893

Whitcomb Judson patented and introduced the first modern “zipper” at the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893. He had improved upon an earlier idea dating back to 1851 and began to market what he called a “Clasp Locker” (a fastener for shoes). Supposedly, Judson made created his zipper for a friend who had problems with his back (from bending down to tie his shoes).

Today in History: Opening of the Hannover Fair in 1947

On this day in 1947, the first Hannover (Trade) Fair opened in an undamaged factory building in the south of Hannover. British military authorities organized the fair to support post-war Germany’s economic success. Some 1,300 exhibitors showed a cross-section of German export production, including dental prostheses, collapsible strollers and German’s future export sensation, the VW Beetle. The fair was a starting signal for the German economic miracle, counting more than 700,000 visitors from 52 nations in only 21 days. Hannover succeeded the then East German city of Leipzig as the major new trade fair city for West Germany and the fair developed into one of the most important industrial fairs in the world.
