NATIONAL BLAME SOMEONE ELSE DAY

I think Mark Richt has lost control of National Day reporting. Sound familiar? Well today, the first Friday the 13th of the year is:

NATIONAL BLAME SOMEONE ELSE DAY

National Blame Someone Else Day uses superstition to pawn our mistakes on to other reasons. It is always celebrated on the first Friday the 13th of the year.

While considering how to spend this Friday the 13th freebee, plan accordingly. We all run into a little bad luck from time to time. Occasionally a flat tire or an alarm clock sets our day on another course. At other times, someone placed in our path causes a malfunction in our day. It may be someone we know. Or, it could be a complete stranger. Either way, casting blame comes in all forms.

A co-worker, our child, a spouse – we’ve been known to throw them under the bus when we needed a scapegoat. Or perhaps they do own the blame for our lateness, stained clothing or dented car.

What about our bad behavior? A short temper that explodes in the boss’s office or a shortcut we take when we run short on time – who is really to blame? Well, on this occasion, someone else is to blame. Just this once. In terms of an excuse, we can blame another. We can blame the dog, the weather, or the mechanic.

Tight-fitting clothes? Blame the closet fairies. If our bank account runs low before payday, the day calls for blaming someone else. Too many happy hour drinks last night causing a headache this morning? Definitely blame someone else. Only for this one occasion, though. The rest are on you.

Go lightly into this day. If you don’t want to blame someone, blame something. It’s all in fun.

NATIONAL BLAME SOMEONE ELSE DAY HISTORY

National Blame Someone Else Day was invented by Anne Moeller of Clio, Michigan in 1982. One day, her alarm clock failed to go off, hence creating a domino effect of bad luck events throughout the day. Since the day happened to be on Friday the 13th, the observance takes place on the first Friday the 13th each year. 

So who would you like to blame and for what would you like to blame them?

If you have gotten all the blaming out of your system, you've likely worked up an appetite. So don't say we don't take care of users. It's also NATIONAL APPLE PIE DAY!!

NATIONAL APPLE PIE DAY

National Apple Pie Day, America’s favorite dessert, is observed annually on May 13th.

The first apple pie recipe printed was in England in 1381. The list of ingredients included good apples, good spices, figs, raisins, pears, saffron, and cofyn (a type of pastry crust).

While the apple pie existed well before the Pilgrims landed on the eastern shores of what is now The United States, Americans wax poetic about how American apple pie is. The phrase “as American as apple pie” has been around for more than 100 years.

During the turn of the 20th century when whole toasted cereals were becoming the ‘health food’ fad, pie gained a bad reputation. Apple pie saved the day of sorts, being more nutritious than other pies according to some.

Teddy Roosevelt was impressed to have a taste of home when he was served an American apple pie while traveling in Africa.

Soldiers during World War II were often quoted they were fighting “for Mom and apple pie.” In 1970, advertisers used the patriotic connection with a commercial jingle “Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet.”

If you don't have your own favorite recipe, you might try Perfect Apple Pie''
