Daily Holidays - November 26 [View all]

National Cake Day “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche!” or, “Let them eat cake!” Perhaps the most famous quote about cake ever, these were the words of a great French princess, often likely Marie Antoinette herself, upon being informed that the peasants were so poor that they had no bread to eat during one of the famines that occurred in France during the reign of her husband, Louis XVI. Needless to say, the ignorance and arrogance of that disdainful statement did not win either Marie Antoinette or her husband any respect or sympathy from their people, who then proceeded to behead both of them during the French Revolution. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/cake-day/

Thanksgiving Day Thanksgiving Day is celebrated each year in the United States on the fourth Thursday in November. http://www.nationaldaycalendar.com/latest-posts/

National Day of Mourning The National Day of Mourning is an annual protest organized since 1970 by Native Americans of New England on the fourth Thursday of November, the same day as Thanksgiving in the United States. It coincides with an unrelated but similar protest, Unthanksgiving Day, held on the West Coast. http://www.nationaldaycalendar.com/latest-posts/

Turkey Free Thanksgiving Day There are several supportive perspectives for the removal of the turkey from the Thanksgiving feast. From the foodie point of view, there are many more scrumptious proteins than the humble turkey. There is also the vegetarian and the animal rights view points, which are self-explanatory. http://www.nationaldaycalendar.com/latest-posts/
