2 December - Historical Events and Special Celebrations

Flower of the Month

Paper White

Gemstone of the Month: Turquoise

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!

The launching of a new car model is always something that the car manufacturer wants to make a lot of fuss about. He wants to show off his latest offering both to the car buying public and to the press and to get as much publicity as possible. The price does it for me on this day in 1927 when the first Model A Ford went on sale for the princely sum of $385!

Doing it by numbers rather than letters Boeing unveiled their jumbo jet, the 747, on this day in 1969. It’s amazing to think they’ve been around that long! Planes have got bigger, but have they got any better than this icon of the aviation world?

Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand teamed up to not send each other flowers on this day in 1978 when their record “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers” went to the #|1 spot on this day in 1978.

The opera singer “La Divina”, Maria Callas (1923 – 1977) is our first birthday celebrity today. Have a listen to “O Mio Babbino Caro” and you’ll see how she got her nickname!

I’m betting that Maria Callas couldn’t play tennis and I’m pretty sure that Monica Seles (1973) can’t sing, but she hits a hard ball and grunts a lot!

Our final birthday wishes go to another singer, Britney Spears (1981). She’s had her media problems over the last few years but she’s become a legend in her own coffee break. School girls weren’t like this when Nomanda went to school so let’s hear Britney’s “Baby One More Time” one more time!

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!!
