Happy 2,069th Birthday, Paris! On this day in 1951, Paris celebrated turning 2,000 years old. But it is likely that the City of Lights was already founded around 250 B.C. Paris is home to some 2 million residents, with an additional 10 million people living in the surrounding metropolitan area. The city retains its reputation as a center for food, fashion, commerce and culture. Paris continues to be one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations.

Today is World Chocolate Day

Today is World Chocolate Day

Observed annually on July 7, there are some references that seem to indicate that this day celebrates the introduction of chocolate to Europe in 1550. To be honest, we don’t much care as long as we have an “official” reason to celebrate in style and eat lots of chocolate on this special occasion … after all, we are only doing our part in observing World Chocolate Day.
