NATIONAL ILLINOIS DAY On December 7th, National Illinois Day recognizes the Land of Lincoln, home to the Windy City, and fertile prairies. #NationalIllinoisDay As the 21st state to join the United States, Illinois’s distinct political, industrial, agricultural and population densities create an intriguing contrast to other states. When farmers began to settle on the Illinois prairie, they found the thick soil challenging to sow. One Vermont blacksmith made the work easier with the invention of the steel plow that cut sod more efficiently than previous tools. John Deere plow was born. Advertisement Railroads and shipping lines grew with farms in the rich prairies as settlers spread across the state. Chicago’s proximity to Lake Michigan has made it a major hub for transportation of goods across the country. With the invention of the combustion engine, more reliable public highways became a national goal. U.S. Route 66 would become the iconic ribbon from Chicago to Los Angeles. Officially established in 1926, portions of the route were created from already existing roads. Illinois completed the first leg of Route 66 during an era when Prohibition was in full swing. A paved roadway gave illegal transportation of spirits a bootleg up and the state a reputation that has become legendary for this era. While Ronald Reagan was the only president born in Illinois, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant and Barack Obama all called Illinois home. Traveling around the state, we will glimpse the wonders of nature or the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright. From tours of his architecture in Oak Park to Starved Rock State Park and Horseshoe Mound, Illinois offers urban and outdoor enjoyment.

NATIONAL PAWNBROKERS DAY Each year on December 6th, National Pawnbrokers Day pays tribute to a profession that provides a valuable service to their clientele. Those who are in need of cash funds and also those looking for a reasonably good deal seek the services of pawnbrokers. #NationalPawnbrokersDay The word pawn is derived from the Latin word pignus, meaning pledge. The history of pawnbroking begins thousands of years ago in the west in Ancient Greek and Roman Empires and in the East over 3000 years ago in China. The pawnbroker offers a loan of cash in exchange for property or goods as security. When the loan plus interest is repaid, the pawnbroker returns the property. However, if the clients don’t repay the loan, they forfeit the property and the pawnbroker may sell it to recover the loan. Governments and churches even became involved in public pawnshops, though no one ever established this type of brokerage in the United States. Five years ago, the National Pawnbrokers Association began a wonderful program on National Pawnbrokers Day called Gift Day. Pawnbrokers across the country make generous donations of musical instruments to organizations in need. December 6, 2012, they worked with the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation and collected instruments for a high school in Mississippi.

INTERNATIONAL NINJA DAY International Ninja Day recognizes the fascination associated with the history and pop culture of the ninja. #InternationalNinjaDay Ninjas first appeared around the year 600. Historically, they served samurai warriors. They spied on or assassinated an enemy. While some sources suggest they were fallen samurai, most point to the common man – and woman. They walked among the farmers and servants of everyday life. Question Mark 4 mulitple When is International Museum Day? However, the skills of a ninja were passed down from generation to generation. If a father were a ninja, then he would likely train his son or daughter to be one, too. In Japan, museums focus on ninja history and lifestyle. Advertisement Ninja Museum of Igaryū – The museum features the tools of the trade, demonstrations, and residences. Kōka Ninja Village – Attend ninja camp and challenges. Tour the museum and many more facilities. Novels and films have brought the way of the ninja to the mainstream. From Japanese action films to animated turtles, ninja movies covered the spectrum. Spy novels, comic books, and series captured the imaginations of every age. Their mystery fed storylines across genres until ninja became a genre all its own.

NATIONAL PIE DAY Each year on December 1st, dessert lovers across the United States enjoy a slice of their favorite on National Pie Day. Pie is so delicious we celebrate it twice a year. The more popular date is January 23rd. #NationalPieDay While it might be the lesser of the two celebrated PIE days (don’t forget National Pi Day on March 14th), it happens to fall smack dab in the middle of a major pie-making season. Take away ice cream as a dessert choice, and most people are either cake people or pie people. Or, to put it another way, most people have cake or pie with their ice cream! The day combines our bumper fruit crops with a booming holiday season full of baked goods, cool weather, and rosy-cheeked children. It’s definitely time to tie on those apron strings and get baking. Of course, we make more than fruit pies! Savory pot pies provide comfort on a cold winter’s day and the satisfaction a family cook needs when caring for a family
