Sunburst Oranges – Every Day is a Holiday

Do you think it would be nice to have at least one celebration every-day? Well there is at least one celebration or holiday every-day of the year.  Here is partial list for May 12th.

International Nurses' Day!
Limerick Day!
National Nutty Fudge Day!

Yes, this is only a partial list of what is being celebrated today.  Since Sunburst Oranges has chocolate for sale the Nutty Fudge Day is very close to home.  We think that the saying should be that “a chocolate a day keeps the doctor away” and would be a good slogan.

While last week was Nurse’s Week today is International Nurses’ Day
The International Council of Nurses (ICN) has celebrated this day since 1965. In 1953 Dorothy Sutherland, an official with the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare, proposed that President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaim a "Nurses' Day"; he did not approve it. In January 1974, 12 May was chosen to celebrate the day as it is the anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, who is widely considered the founder of modern nursing. Each year, ICN prepares and distributes the International Nurses' Day Kit. The kit contains educational and public information materials, for use by nurses everywhere. In 1999 the British public sector union UNISON voted to ask the ICN to transfer this day to another date, saying Nightingale does not represent modern nursing. As of 1998, 8 May was designated as annual National Student Nurses' Day. As of 2003, the Wednesday within National Nurses Week, between 6 and 12 May, is National School Nurse Day.

Limerick Day celebrates the birthday of Writer Edward Lear (1812-1888).  It also, of course, celebrates Limerick poems. Limericks were popularized by Lear in 1846 in his Book of Nonsense".

This day is a time to enjoy and get your fill of Limerick poems. A Limerick is a humorous verse or poem. It is five lines longs. We are so glad that it came along to brighten up our lives. Celebrate Limerick Day in style by writing a Limerick or two of your own. Or, sit down and read a few humorous Limericks. They are guaranteed to make you smile. Did you know? Limerick is the third largest city in Ireland.

Fudge is thought to have been first created in the US in the late 1800’s so it is a fairly new invention. The first documented fudge recipes come from two female college students in New York during 1888. The girls would make batches of fudge and sell them 40 cents a pound. The first recipes for fudge were very complex and precise.
