BUBBLE GUM DAY AND NATIONAL CREPE DAY

FEBRUARY 2ND

BUBBLE GUM DAY

AND

NATIONAL CREPE DAY

 

 BUBBLE GUM DAY

 

Bubble Gum is a favorite among kids and adults alike. The sweet, fresh taste it brings to our mouth is so refreshing. I remember the smell of my Grandmother’s purse, as I searched the pockets for a piece of gum when I was a little girl. She always kept that little pocket full of gum for her grandkids.

 

Bubble Gum Day is observed on the first Friday in February, what a great way to head into your weekend. Bubble Gum Day helps raise money for schools and the charities they support. Students donate 50 cents to be able to chew bubble gum in class on Bubble Gum Day.

HISTORY OF THE DAY

According to Holiday Insights,

Ruth Spiro is a writer, a children’s book author, and a bubble gum fan. She created this day in 2006. Her objective was to create a day where schools can do a fundraiser, without selling things.

 

FUN FACT

Joyce Samuels of Louisville, Kentucky, USA blew from her nose a bubblegum bubble with a diameter of 27.94 cm. (11 in.) on the set of Guinness World Records: Primetime, Los Angeles, USA on 10 November 2000.  Joyce, who has been chewing gum since she was 12 years old, began putting the gum on her nose to blow bubbles for entertaining her children.

She pre-chews the gum for at least an hour to get the sugar out, before making it into a rectangle shape with her hands and putting it over her nostrils.

HISTORY OF THE DAY

According to Blend Tec, It’s a tradition in France to serve crepes on February 2, which was originally known as Virgin Mary’s Blessing day and then became known as Crepe Day, referring to the ritual of offering crepes. According to the tradition, if you toss a crepe in the air and catch it with a pan in your left hand while holding a gold coin in your right hand, you will become rich that year.

 

FUN FACT

The word crepe is French for pancake and its Latin meaning is “curled”.  Crepes originated in Brittany, in the northwest region of France,  Crepes were originally called galettes, meaning flat cakes. The French pronunciation of both words is with a short e, as in bed.
