13 November - Historical Events and Special Celebrations

Gemstone of the Month


Flower of the Month: Chrysanthemum

Nomanda’s Happy Special Day blog is a celebration of events and anniversaries that have touched our lives. If today is your special day join us in looking at a few other events that have occurred on your day. Enjoy!

One of Walt Disney’s classics “Fantasia” was released on this day in 1940 and even though there’s no dialogue it can still be enjoyed by kids of all ages even today!

One of the most horrible bits of ladies “make-up”, false fingernails, went on sale on this day in 1952. They look awful, they drop off into all the most unlikely places, and you can’t even pick your nose properly with them!

Our first birthday celebrity today is the author Robert Louis Stevenson (1850 – 1894) who will always find a place in most children’s hearts through his novel “Treasure Island”. Much better than the “Pirates of the Caribbean” to Nomanda’s taste!

Our other birthday guest today is the larger than life actress Whoopi Goldberg (1949). Love her or hate her Nomanda thinks she’s quite a funny lady! Have a look at this clip from “Sister Act” with the swinging nuns.

Happy Special Day to one and all!!

If you know someone who is celebrating their birthday, anniversary or a special day today or sometime soon why not send them a nice e-card so they get it as soon as they log on! Even better, why not send this page to your friend!
Don’t know what to get for a present? Think about what your special person enjoys doing and the things they like.

For Girls, I know that flowers and chocolates are a bit cliché but nevertheless they always seem to work! Of course, if your budget stretches that far, jewellery, watches, perfume and fashion items are always appreciated!

For Boys, all boys like toys! It’s just as they get older the toys get more expensive. So gadgets and gimmicky things work. Again, if you have the budget then car accessories, sporting equipment and clothes, and man type jewellery like watches and gold chains will go down very well!

And, if all else fails, you could always send them a gift voucher and they can choose whatever they want!

If you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary or other special event today I hope you got lots of cards and presents and that there is someone special in your life who will make this day a very happy and special day for you.

Happy celebrations to you from the Happy Special Day Blog!!
