Surprisingly, the name woodchuck doesn’t have anything to do with wood. It’s thought to be a corruption of the Native American words wejack, woodshaw, or woodchoock. It may have its roots in the Algonquian (or perhaps Narragansett) name for the animal: wuchak.  Other sources claim it’s a bastardization of the Cree word otchek for “fisher” or the Ojibwe ojiig, also for “fisher” or “marten,” which Europeans appropriated and misapplied to the groundhog.  So how much wood could a woodchuck chuck? None, apparently.

The day shown for 'National Gibberish Day' is based off how much chitter-chatter and buzz there was on Sept. 20, 2016 across social media making references to 'Gibberish Day' . Our algorithms examine all of the references to National Days across social media and updates whatnationaldayisit.com hourly, with our homepage displaying the current national day. This crowdsourcing of data method to assess the National Gibberish Day date is used as opposed to being connected with any Government sacntioned lists :D Hurrah for democracy by concensus!

We all know that moms and dads are constantly juggling a menu of responsibilities: home, school, kids, meals, work, community and more. We know this because we see it piling up on their calendars, shopping lists and to do lists every day. With life this hectic, it’s impossible to stay on top of everything all the time, but it IS possible to get the mission-critical stuff under control. I’m On Top Of It Day is all about celebrating one thing that you feel good about getting on top of.

Crackers On The Keyboard

I decided to do this as soon as I got into work this morning, because then no one would have to witness my awkward attempts at trying to take a selfie while eating a cracker and holding my keyboard to make sure it was in the picture. Goldfish for breakfast!
Biologically however, our keyboard may be more of a nature preserve for germs than the office toilet. The latter, at least, gets a nightly once-over from the cleaning crew. Your keyboard may never have been cleaned, making it a breeding ground for all sorts of bugs. A study by a University of Arizona biologist found computer keyboards contained more germs per square inch than did toilet seats in the same office; 67 times as many! - See more at: http://www.greenkeyllc.com/blog/do-the-keyboard-shake-to-celebrate-crackers-over-the-keyboard-day/#s

That's not a reason to call out the hazmat unit. Most of the germs are, well, germs that are everywhere and to which we all have some degree of immunity, especially since those on your keyboard come mostly from you. As microbiologist Dr Peter Wilson told the BBC when a study in the U.K. turned up results similar to the Arizona study: "If you look at what grows on computer keyboards, believe it or not, it's more or less a reflection of what's in your nose and in your gut." - See more at: http://www.greenkeyllc.com/blog/do-the-keyboard-shake-to-celebrate-crackers-over-the-keyboard-day/#sthash.8TBUy7P

Colorful processions through the streets and firework displays mark the celebration of the Feast of the Assumption in Italy, as they do in Italian-American communities throughout the United States. In Sicily and rural areas outside Rome, a bowing procession is the day’s main event. A statue of the Virgin Mary is carried through the town to a ceremonial arch of flowers, where a group of people holding a statue of Christ awaits her arrival. Both statues are inclined toward each other three times, and then the Christ figure precedes the figure of Mary back to the parish church for a special benediction.
