28 March - Historical Events and Special Celebrations

Flower of the Month


Gemstone of the Month: Bloodstone

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!

The 28th March does not seem to have been a “busy” day throughout much of history, but if it’s your special day …….ENJOY!

A few events worthy of note are that it was n this day in 1794 that the Louvre opened to the Parisian public. In true French tradition this monumental museum was officially opened in August 1793 but apparently they’d managed to keep the public out until today!

In another case of historical “déjà vu” it was on this day in 1959 that the China dissolved the Tibetan government just 11 days after the Tibetan uprising protesting against Chinese rule. So nothing much changed there then.

On a happier note today in 1964 celebrated the first broadcast from the “pirate shipRadio Caroline.

Continuing the pop theme it was today in 1974 that the rock group “The Raspberries” broke up producing probably the world’s first raspberry smoothie!

Celebrating his birthday today is Welshman Neil Kinnock (1942), leader of the British Labour Party, vice president of the European Commission, and no lover of tall plumbers (see yesterday’s blog!)

Milan Williams
(1948 – 2006) the keyboard player for the Commodores is our first birthday celebrity today. One of their best known songs is Lionel Ritchie’s “Three Times a Lady”.

Another rock star born on this day in 1969 was Salt best known for “Salt n Pepa and Shake your Thang”.

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!!
