4 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!

Yesterday the humble potato made an appearance on the blog and today it’s the turn of the egg! Not just any egg, but the egg that was supposed to have been laid by a hen in Rome on this day in 1680. And there’s more! The egg is said to have been imprinted with a comet that was seen 12 days later on 16th December. I guess that any ordinary egg laid would not have made the records so Nomanda has to assume that there’s an element of truth in the tale. Maybe it was a medieval sell by date, or is it all a yoke!

I’m betting that the indomitable Mike Atherton was ready for a plate of egg and chips at the end of his innings against South Africa on this day in 1995 after he had batted for 643 minutes scoring just 185* runs and saving the game. He saved the day and the English team’s bacon! So let’s order up a plate of MNX ‘n chips for the mighty “Athers”!

Mighty” is not a word to describe the diminutive Ronnie Corbett (1930) our first birthday guest today. He’s a very funny guy who knows his place!

Our next birthday boy, Chris Hillman (1944), the lead singer of the “Byrds” likes a bit of “Turn Turn Turn” at his birthday bashes!

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!!
