26 November - Historical Events and Special Celebrations

Flower of the Month


Gemstone of the Month

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!

A favourite of children all over the world “Alice in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll was published on this day in 1865. If you haven’ got a copy of this book then have a good look around for some of the fabulous illustrated editions that will delight your kids! Or as Alice said, “What’s the good of a book without pictures?

Lovers of 3D movies will appreciate this day in 1952 when the first “modern” 3D film “Bwana Devil” premiered in Hollywood. Try though I have Nomanda just doesn’t get 3D movies, it’s an eye thing!

The Italian born hotel magnate Charles Forte (1908 – 2007) is our first birthday celebrity. Despite having a major shareholding in the Savoy Hotel and the renowned Trust House Forte chain of hotels the Forte Group also ran much more modest places like the “Happy Eater” and the “Little Chef” chains. Nomanda’s been in some but not all of Charlie’s places. I wonder if you can guess which!

The creator of “Peanuts”, Charles Schultz (1922 – 2000), is our next birthday guest. We even have a dog called “Snoopy”!

Not one of Nomanda’s favourite singers, Tina Turner (1939) is our next birthday celebrity. Coming up to 70 you may think she would wear clothes more in keeping with her age, but she doesn’t and Nomanda thinks she should! What do you think?

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!!
