BANNERS: Backwards Day!

Today is the day to do everything backwards - writing, looking, dressing, talking... because today is Backwards Day!

Sarah Nicole Miller and Megan Emily Scott created Backwards Day on January 29, 1961. They were thinking about making arts and crafts, while milking cows on the Miller family farm, when the idea struck them. Later that evening, they sat down and made the rules. The idea got out amid the community, and on January 31, 1962, the first Backwards Day occurred. The two women were walking down the street, when they saw all the townspeople doing things backwards! - Holiday Insights

BANNERS: Beer Can Appreciation Day! | January 24

That's right. Back on January 24th, 1935, for the first time ever, beer in cans were made available to the public in Richmond, Virginia.

In the end, they were easier to stack, more durable and took less time to chill. 
Happy Beer Can Appreciation Day!
