Elijah Wood’s Birthday

Elijah Jordan Wood was born on January 28, 1981, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to Warren and Debbie Wood. He was the second of three children and showed a talent for entertaining people from a very young age. Debbie Wood took her son to Los Angeles for the International Modeling and Talent Association annual convention in 1988, and he started booking small roles in television and movies soon after.

Wood’s big break was in the 1990 film Avalon as Michael Kaye. The role landed him a nomination for the Young Artist Awards’ Best Leading Young Actor in a Feature Film. Over the next few years, Wood booked several major roles in movies including The Good Son, Deep Impact, and The Faculty. In 2001, Wood was cast in the biggest role of his life to date, Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.

 

Since The Lord of the Rings, Wood has appeared in movies such as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Sin City, as well as lending his voice to Happy Feet and 9. He is reprising his role as Frodo Baggins for The Hobbit trilogy, and has several movies currently filming or in post-production. Wood seems to have joined a select few who successfully transitioned from cute child star to respected Hollywood actor and shows no signs of slowing down.

Happy birthday Elijah!

Humiliation Day

January 3 is Humiliation Day.

The origins of this holiday are unknown, but there is a Canadian Humiliation Day in July to bring attention to Canadian immigration laws banning the Chinese in the 1920s. We think this would be a perfect holiday for anti-bullying campaigns to grab hold of and spread awareness about.

Today is not a day to admit times you have been humiliated, nor is it a day to humiliate others. Today is a day to reflect on how your actions affect other people. Being humiliated or bullied can have traumatic and long-lasting effects on people and has been linked to low self-esteem, depression, and even suicide.

So, think twice before you humiliate someone for kicks today, or any day for that matter. It may also be a good day to make amends with someone you have humiliated in the past, because even though words can hurt, a simple “I’m sorry” could mean the world to someone.

National Science Fiction Day

We celebrate National Science Fiction Day on January 2 to honor the birthday of Isaac Asimov. Asimov is considered one of the “Big Three” science fiction writers of his time, and his more than 500 works of fact and fiction span all ten major categories of the Dewey Decimal System.

Today is a day to celebrate the beloved genre of science fiction. Take some time today to sit down with a science fiction novel, or have a science fiction movie marathon. If you are a true sci-fi geek, you may even spend your day building a robot or hovercraft!

Boxing Day

December 26 is Boxing Day!

Boxing Day is celebrated the day after Christmas in Canada, the UK, New Zealand, and Australia.

It is very similar to Black Friday in the United States, with retailers opening early and offering dramatic discounts. Before it was a major shopping day, Boxing Day was a day off for servants and a time when superiors would give presents to their workers.

Whether shopping or exchanging gifts, Boxing Day is a day to spend with family and friends that you may not have seen during Christmas celebrations.
