20 November - Historical Events and Special Celebrations

Flower of the Month


Gemstone of the Month: Topaz

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!

It is a special day today on the occasion of her wedding on this day in 1947 of the then Princess Elizabeth to Duke Philip Mountbatten. Happy anniversary, Ma’am!

The footballer Pele scored his 1,000th goal on this day in 1969. I wonder at what stage he started counting them!

Somebody had their abacuses out at McDonalds when they recorded their 50 billionth hamburger made on this day in 1984. It makes me quite sick just to think about it!

And not a very nice anniversary present for HRH Queen Elizabeth when her home at Windsor Castle caught fire on this day in 1984. Did a bit of damage and was the final straw of an “annus horribulus” for HRH.

We may not have too many birthday celebrities today but the person we have makes up for the numbers in quality. Bo Derek (1955) is our special girl and she gets 10/10 from Nomanda!

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!!
