OK, so I have this app on my phone by Hallmark that lists quirky Holidays each day. A fun little thingie.
So today is "NATIONAL FLITCH DAY". Here is what they had to say about it:
"On Flitch Day we recognize that 1980's comedy classic starring Chevy Chase. Wait, that's not right. No, Flitch Day recognizes the custom of awarding a flitch of bacon (the cut side of the pig) to married couples who make it through their first year and a day with no regrets. This tradition started in 15th century England and is still carried on in some towns today. So to all of you newlyweds out there, may your only regret be that you didn't get more free bacon throughout the year."
Oh- and today is also "National Daquari Day". YUM.
