Here's What's Happening Today, Feb. 4th

Create a Vacuum Day - Celebrated every February 4th. No one really knows what this day is all about but here are a couple of videos from BBC One - bang goes the theory that you've just got to see. Video #1  Video#2

Day For Change - From the Day for Change website: "UNICEF is the world's leading organization working for children's rights, they promise to protect and promote the rights of every child." 
  1. The right to be heard.
  2. The right to a childhood.
  3. The right to fairness.
  4. The right to education.
  5. The right to health.
Watch this video for more information. I love the little girl at the end, she has the sweetest voice.

Ice Cream for Breakfast Day - Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast on the first Saturday in February. Get the whole story here at the Ice Cream for Breakfast Day website.

Liberace Day - Wladziu Valentino Liberace, famous (and incredible) pianist/vocalist, died on this date in 1987.

National Homemade Soup Day - Celebrated every February 4th. Homemade soup is a perfect meal solution for a cold winter's day. I recently made this yummy Creamy Chicken Taco Soup.  I think I'll give this Disneyland Loaded Baked Potato Soup a try next.

National Stuffed Mushrooms Day - Celebrated every February 4th. Just last Sunday I made these wonderful Stuffed Mushrooms, from The Pioneer Woman, for my family. I wish I had taken pictures so you would know I wasn't just joshin' ya. I made one little change to her recipe, I added 1/2 box of prepared Stovetop stuffing to mine. They were everything a stuffed mushroom should be. I couldn't get enough!

National Quacker Day - Celebrated every February 4th. There is a clothing manufacturer called the Quacker Factory which is showcased on the QVC. Apparently, there are over 3 million women in the United States alone, who belong to a group called the "Quackers". These women are Quacker Factory clothing wearers who, when they see each other, say "Quack, Quack" to one another.

Thank a Mailman Day - February 4th is set aside each year as a day to give your mail carrier a great big "Thank you". You could, I'm sure, thank them any day throughout the year and they'd appreciate it, any day that is, but Sunday. :0)
