Daily Holidays - November 27

National Bavarian Cream Pie Day To make a Bavarian Cream Pie, Bavarian cream, also called crème bavaroise, is poured into a baked pie crust and refrigerated. French chef Marie Antione Careme, is given credit for the invention of Bavarian cream, which is a gelatin-based pastry cream, that was originally served in gourmet restaurants and luxury hotels, in France, in the early 19th century. http://www.nationaldaycalendar.com/latest-posts/

National Buy Nothing Day When was the last time you went a whole day without buying anything? In this day and age, is it actually possible to buy nothing for twenty four hours? Supporters of ‘Buy Nothing Day’ think it is. And what’s more, they think we should all try it. At its core, Buy Nothing Day is a protest against the consumerism the organizers felt was necessary in our world, governed by the need to “have things”. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/buy-nothing-day/

Maize Day Maize Day is celebrated every year to mark the special role that maize has played in food history. Maize, which the Europeans came to call “corn,” has an ancient and interesting history and plays central roles in many native myths and legends. And anyone who’s ever eaten corn on the cob with fresh creamy butter and a pinch of salt knows that corn more than deserves its own holiday! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/maize-day/

Flossing Day encourages the regular use of dental floss to promote healthy teeth and gums. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/flossing-day/

Systems Engineers Day With the world becoming more and more digitized every day, there is a group of people that has rather suddenly become one of the most important groups of people in the world: systems engineers. Systems engineers make enormous contributions to the world as we know it every single day, allowing us to live the increasingly comfortable lives we are accustomed to, and neither our personal nor our professional lives would be the same without them. Systems engineers work on numerous complex projects: spacecraft design, computer chip design, robotics, software integration, and bridge building. The computer you’re using right now to read this article would not exist if it weren’t for systems engineers, nor would the plane you’re taking to go to your exotic holiday destination, and nor would the bridge you need to cross to get to work every day. And let’s not forget the International Space Station, one of the most impressive examples of what systems engineering can accomplish. Though systems engineer is a very young profession, there is no disputing that it is one of the most important ones in today’s world. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/systems-engineer-day/

3. Buying nothing = no problem!

I'm not leaving the house today!

No room for Bavarian Cream Pie today! I still have an entire pumpkin pie and a pecan pie in the fridge.
