26 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 day after Christmas when everyone recovers from the great day and either cold turkey or if you’re really lucky curried turkey will be on most people’s lunch time menus! It’s the day after the day before and in Nomanda’s previous life it was the day when all the blokes would go down to the pub sporting their extravagant Christmas gifts and the inevitable “I’ll wear it only once” silly Christmas sweater decorated with Santas and Reindeers!

I know that Christmas is mainly for the kids but to send your 2 year old out on her first stage debut seems a bit harsh! That’s what happened to Judy Garland on this day in 1924 where she was billed as “Baby Frances”. She went on to do more challenging things!

Of course it’s also the season of Pantomimes and of excited cries of “He’s behind you!” Have fun!

The Beatles obviously enjoyed this day over the years releasing “I Want To Hold Your Hand” and “I Saw Her Standing There” together on this day in 1963. And in the following year on this day their record “I Feel Fine” went to the #1spot and stayed there for another 3 weeks. I bet they felt very fine at that!

There’s no-one of special interest to Nomanda who has their birthday on this day but if today is your special day Nomanda sends you his best wishes and hopes you have a great time on your special day !

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!!
