It is May 15 already! 2020 is flying by like a shooting star. It is a long year ahead just like the months that went by. The days that passed have taught us many things and we are going to rock the rest of the months as well. We bring to you the different reasons we should be celebrating each day through this Today column so read on to know why you should.
Endangered Species Day
We are part of a huge ecosystem with animals, plants, birds, and other creatures being as significant as humans in the system. And, sadly many such species that keep the chain going are on the verge of extinction. Some species are as few as they are counted in tens. When the last one is gone, it is gone forever.
The first Endangered Species Day was held on May 15, 2006. The struggles have been there for a very long time. The day reminds people of the endangered species on the globe. This creates awareness and makes people conscious of the limited time their favorite creatures have on Earth.
Thus, on this day, read about the species to your children. Use the hashtag #endangeredspeciesday on social media and post pictures of some animals you love. Spread the word through online channels and let others know what the day is about and how you should celebrate.
National Pizza Party Day
Pizza is the favorite food for many of us. It is the go-to eatery for every mood. Be it celebrating success or sulking over a heartbreak, everyone takes the help of the pizza to get through it. So obviously, there’s a day to celebrate it every year. That’s the 3rd Friday of May every year, and it falls on May 15 this year.
Pizza has taken several dimensions and gone through different stages to reach the place where it is today. The history of the day is the history of pizza itself. Greeks were the first who made pizza by covering bread with bread, herbs, oil, and cheese. But, the pizza as we know it today was invented in Italy and came to be known as Neapolitan Flatbread.
On this day, first of all, decide the reason you want to put up a party. Celebrate by inviting friends and family to share a night of fun at your favorite pizzeria. You can also celebrate it by making homemade pizza and customizing one’s favorite toppings.
National Choco Chip Day
Every dessert becomes amazing and ultimately delicious, with those little chocolate inventions, that adorn every cookie. The Choco Chip! The easiest way to transport chocolate is by making them into choco chips.
Like many popular culinary inventions, Choco chips were an accidental invention by Ruth Graves Wakefield. He was trying to make chocolate spread cookies. But the chocolate rather than melting went to the bulk of the cookie. Then the Choco chip went through several innovations, but the most popular one remains to be semi-sweet.
Today in May 15, celebrate everything that has Choco chips in it. Puddings, cakes, muffins, ice creams, and of course cookies. Try to incorporate every meal with Choco chips, and devour the amazing nature with every bite. Make your chocolate chip cake and relish it with your family and friends.
Bike to Work Day
The third Friday of May marks the National Bike to Work day every year. This was first in 1956 to encourage people to bike to work and profess a way that could make people have an eco-friendly commute to work. The bike to work day falls on the bike to work month. Thus, everyone who loves to bike to work can do it for the whole month. Bike to work day is observed all over by organizing bicycle-related events worldwide. Anybody who wishes to celebrate the day can join in the events and the celebration.
Biking is healthier for the body as well as for the Earth. It makes less pollution and boosts up the air purity. Also, it makes one physically fit and makes their muscles active for the work that follows. Cycling is very inexpensive and people can save a huge sum as well.
