Daily Holidays - January 30

National Croissant Day The legend of how the croissant came to be is that in 1683, the Turkish Empire laid siege on Vienna, Austria. The Turks made several attempts to conquer the city by force, but were unsuccessful, so decided to try underground tunnels. The bakers of Vienna, who worked in the basement storerooms, heard the sound of digging and alerted the cities army. For their vigilance, the bakers received high honors and thanks for their assistance in outwitting the Turks. In celebration, they baked their bread in the shape of a crescent moon—the symbol of the Ottoman Empire. After the Turks were defeated, it became custom to serve morning coffee with the crescent-shaped pastry! The legend continues to say that over a hundred years later, Marie Antoinette introduced the pastry to the French who dubbed it a “croissant”. Celebrate Croissant Day in style by eating an abundance of this tasty treat! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/croissant-day/

Inane Answering Message Day Answering messages tend to be a little dull, ranging from mobile network defaults, to the classic, “Sorry, John’s not here right now… please leave a message after the tone”. Liven things up on Inane Answering Message Day by getting creative, funny or silly with your message! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/inane-answering-message-day/
