NATIONAL APP DAY

National App Day is observed annually on December 11. The word “App” was listed as the word of the year in 2010 by the American Dialect Society.

Short for Software Application, apps quickly appeared as our mobile cellular phones incorporated smart technologies including processing chips, internet connectivity and touchscreens.

Since that time apps have changed how we work, live and play. They have created thousands of new companies, millions of new jobs and billions of dollars in revenue.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Post what your favorite app is on social media using #NationalAppDay, including why you couldn’t imagine life without it.

HISTORY

National App Day was submitted to and accepted by the Registrar at National Day Calendar in December 2017 by CJ Thompson, founder of Platinum Edge Media.

The purpose of National App Day is to celebrate the importance of apps as they change our collective culture by organically promoting creativity and innovation.

Apps accelerated in growth with the advent of Apple’s iPhone in 2007. In 2008 Apple introduced OS 2.0, which included approximately 500 apps and allowed third-party app generation. Today there are over 2 million apps on both the Apple and Android platforms and thousands more introduced daily.

ROCKEFELLER CENTER TREE LIGHTING

The date of the annual Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony in New York City changes annually.

Every year since 1933, an evergreen tree plucked from its spot in New York or Vermont, Ohio or Pennsylvania or even Canada, is erected at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. It is trimmed with hundreds of ornaments and thousands of colorful lights and topped with a star and on a selected day after Thanksgiving, is lit for the world to see.

The tree must exceed 65 feet to be selected for the honor of gracing Rockefeller Center. The tallest tree selected was a 100 foot Norway Spruce from Killingworth, Connecticut.

Each year the tree is donated to various organizations. In years past, the tree has been ground into mulch and donated to the Boy Scouts of America to be sold to fund projects. Recently, Habitat for Humanity has been a benefactor of the great tree for use in the construction of homes.

The tree remains lit until the Christian feast of the Epiphany.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Visit Rockefeller Center or watch the lighting from the comfort of your home. Use #RockefellerCenterTreeLighting to post on social media.

HISTORY

The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony has become a national tradition hearkening back to the days of the Great Depression. On Christmas Eve of 1931, a group of construction workers erected a small, Spruce Christmas tree on the site of what would become Rockefeller Center. In Rockefeller Center’s inaugural year, 1933, the first official Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting took place. Since then it has become a national event including skating pageants, live entertainment and television specials.

National Fast Food Day - November 16bSave

NATIONAL FAST FOOD DAY


National Fast Food Day is observed annually on November 16. On this day each year, people all across the country celebrate by going through the drive-thru, dining inside or ordering their fast food to go.


First popularized in the United States in the 1950s, fast food is considered any meal with low preparation time and served to a customer in a packaged form for quick dine-in, take-out or take-away and typically with a drive-thru.

Merriam-Webster dictionary first recognized the term “fast food” in 1951.

Following World War I, automobiles became popular and more affordable. At that time drive-in restaurants were introduced. In 1921, White Castle, an American company founded by Billy Ingram and Walter Anderson in Wichita, Kansas, opened, selling hamburgers for five cents each. Anderson had opened the first White Castle in 1916 as a limited menu, high-volume, low-cost, high-speed hamburger restaurant.

The United States has the largest fast food industry in the world. American fast food restaurants are located in over 100 countries.

Standard fast food menu items include hamburgers and other sandwiches, fish, fried chicken, chicken nuggets, tacos, pizza, hot dogs, french fries, onion rings, breakfast biscuits, coffee and ice cream.

Fun fact: The first Happy Meal was served in June of 1979.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Go out for some fast food and use #NationalFastFoodDay to post on social media.

World Kindness Day - November 13bSave

WORLD KINDNESS DAY

On November 13 as part of World Kindness Day, we are encouraged to spread kindness like an infectious cold. We want to share it more than usual because studies show when others observe kindness in action they are more likely to carry out an act of kindness, too.

So, imagine if you head out for the day and your neighbor’s garbage can has tipped over. Instead of ignoring it and letting the wind make a mess, you pick it up and return it to the corner. Three other neighbors notice and give you a smile and a nod on their way to work.

One of those neighbors notices a stranded driver on the side of the road on his commute to work. He remembers your thoughtfulness and offers assistance to the stranded driver. Several passersby take notice.

At a business office, a woman struggles with a paper jam. She’s had a horrible day. The customer has been waiting, but she remembers the stranded driver she passed earlier in the day. The customer lets the office worker know to take her time. Everyone has a bad day.

We each have the potential to improve each others lives through understanding and kindness. Whether it’s a friend, family member, coworker or stranger, our ability to show our humanity should have no limit.

HOW TO OBSERVE

On World Kindness Day, let your compassion shine brightly. Get caught showing as much kindness as possible.

For inspiration on leading a life of kindness, Orly Wahba has written a book and her organization Life Vest Inside produced a short film called Kindness Boomerang.

Use #WorldKindnessDay to share on social media.

HISTORY

The World Kindness Movement started World Kindness Day in 1998 and has spread to 28 countries.
