27 February - Historical Events and Special Celebrations

Gemstone of the Month


Flower of the Month: Violet

First of all Nomanda would like to thank all our new readers! We have been getting more and more of you every day and we really appreciate you! If you are enjoying Nomanda’s blog please pass it on to your friends. And if you would like to make a comment or get your own special mention on your own special day just send us the details through the comments section and we’ll make sure we don’t forget you!

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!

Do you ever have one of those days when you just think that it’s not worth getting out of bed for? Well if you do, you’re in good company as on this day in history it appears that not too many people got out of bed to do anything very interesting with the following limited exceptions!

It was on this day in 1982 that Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder recorded their duet “Ebony and Ivory”. It would go on to hit the #1 spot and stay there for 7 weeks and everybody would be happy!

The German figure skater Katarina Witt was doing what she does best on this day in 1988 and skating her way to a second successive Olympic gold medal at the Calgary Winter Games. And this is how she did it! All it takes is power, strength, courage, guts, skill, determination, grace and lots of practice! I don’t know why more people don’t take it up!

Two great actresses with completely different lifestyles and values are our birthday celebrities today.

Our first is Joanne Woodward (1930). She led a quiet and private life away from the cameras and appeared with her husband Paul Newman in several films. She and Paul were married for over 50 years up to the great man’s sad departure last year.

Elizabeth Taylor
(1932) is our other celebrity whose birthday we are celebrating today. She has led a different life to Joanne but she’s still a great lady!

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!!
