Healthier than what I just had....... pizza hut taco pizza with 7 layer taco bell burrito guts strewn on it then smothered with guacamole and sriracha sauce then doused with an entire can of bacon flavored eazy cheez.
Pucker up your lips. No, you're not about to be kissed. But, you should be about to bite into a tart, yet sweet, lemon cupcake. Why? Because today is National Lemon Cupcake Day.
Not everyone loves the flavor of lemon. It's too tart for some. Certainly those who do enjoy the tart, yet refreshing taste, will agree that the lemon cupcake fully deserves it's day for recognition.
Spread the joy. Share your enjoyment. Buy or make some lemon cup cakes today. Share them with friends. Seek out people who have never even tried a lemon cupcake today. Induce them to try one of yours. Do these things, and you will truely have a wonderful National Lemon Cupcake Day.
When: December 26th. However, some people will celebrate it on the first weekday after Christmas. If Christmas falls on a Friday or a Saturday, Boxing Day is the following Monday.
Boxing Day is celebrated in England, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and other former British commonwealth countries. It is a legal holiday in these countries. This is also St. Stephans Day, where Boxing Day gets some of it's roots. On St. Stephans' Day, churches opened their collection boxes to the poor.
Boxing Day was an expression of appreciation and thanks, much like Christmas tips are today.
The roots of the holiday goes back to the Middle Ages. On this day, members of the merchant class would take boxes, fill them with food and fruits, and give them to servants, tradespeople and the less fortunate. In the case of servants, they would work on Christmas Day, so it was only fitting that immediately after Christmas, they would be given a day off to celebrate.
Usually celebrated the day after Christmas, some would celebrate the following Monday when Christmas fell on a Friday or Saturday.
Today, the giving of boxes includes filling boxes with food and clothing for the needy and performing volunteer work. Monetary gifts to charity are also common.
