National Juggling Day

June 13 is National Juggling Day!

Juggling dates back centuries and centuries; the earliest known jugglers were depicted on the walls of ancient tombs in Egypt estimated around 1994-1781 B.C.. There is also evidence that suggests juggling existed in the societies of ancient Greece and Rome.

Juggling became extremely popular within the courts of Medieval Europe. Jugglers were employed to entertain royalty and their guests, and sometimes jugglers even worked as street performers for the amusement of the townspeople.

The word “juggle” is derived from the Middle English word “jogelen” which means to perform or entertain. People have been known to juggle with many different objects: bowling pins, scarves, balls, bean bags, and even objects on fire!

Celebrate National Juggling Day by learning to juggle, or if you already know how, incorporate a more difficult object into your juggling routine.

National Kitchen Klutzes of America Day

Anyone who is a klutz in the kitchen, June 13 is your day…Happy National Kitchen Klutzes of America Day!

This is a day to celebrate those who make a huge mess or commit culinary murder in the name of trying to create a great meal for others to enjoy. So, celebrate your clumsy ways, your burnt cookies and dry chicken, and the mess you never fail to leave behind after you’ve spent time in the kitchen by taking a break from actually trying to cook without being a klutz. Just have fun! Who knows…maybe a little fun and freedom will translate into an edible meal and a spotless kitchen…

…Or you can always just stay out of the kitchen today.

We have a few stories from our very own office to share!

Sarah- “I made the classic ‘undercooking the turkey’ mistake once. My turkey appeared beautiful when I took it out of the oven. Then, we went to carve it for dinner and realized that the inside was a pink, bloody, icy mess!”

Misty- “When I was younger, I was in the kitchen talking to my mom while she was cooking dinner. She had a pot of water boiling for Mac n Cheese, and she  was in the middle of talking to me as I watched her open the box of mac n cheese, take the cheese packet out, and dump the noodles in the trash and try to throw the box in the pot of water… Never talk while cooking. “

Have you ever made a HUGE mistake in the kitchen?
