23 January - Historical Events and Special Celebration

Gemstone of the Month

Flower of the Month: Carnation

When it is your happy special day and whether you are celebrating a birthday or special anniversary, if you would like a mention on Nomanda’s blog just send us the details. We promise you a very special mention on this blog on your special day!

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!

We all know that most ladies like to wear a nice frock on special occasions. However there won’t be too many queuing up to buy the frock exhibited in Paris on this day in 1977 for the princely sum of $1.5 million! It’s probably way out of fashion now anyway!

Sent to prison for “a crime they didn’t commit” the “A-Team” premiered on this day in 1983. Those were the days when innocent people in trouble could call on the “A-Team” who would come along and fight on the side of right and justice. It’s a pity the world hasn’t got more “A-Teams” around! I just love it when a plan comes together, don’t you? If you have a problem why don’t you call the ”A-Team”?

One of England’s top batsmen, Graham Gooch was on his way to his 100th 100 on tour at Cuttack on this day in 1993. Despite his prolific batting performances and strong captaincy of the English side he was not always best liked by his team mates some of whom thought he pushed too hard.

Our first birthday celebrity is the French impressionist painter Edouard Manet (1832 – 1883). His paintings are recognized all over the world and this is one of Nomanda’s favourites! (you choose one, please, x)

It’s not a “Secret” that it’s Robin Zander’s (1955) birthday today so now everybody knows!

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!!
