Apple Pie Day- May 13

Apple pie is one of the most favorite desserts in the United States and Europe. May 13 is a day devoted to the apple pie.
The first recipe for apple pie printed on paper is from England, from year 1381. The list of ingredients included in the recipe was: good apples, good spices, figs, raisins, pears, saffron and a dough.
Apple pie was a popular food in homes in the United States in the eighteenth century, just before the European colonization of America. In order to distinguish between the old Americans and the new immigrants, they would say: "American like apple pie" which meant "typical American" .
In the 19th and 20th centuries the apple pie became a symbol of American prosperity and national pride.
The newspapers wrote that during the Second World War, when journalists asked the American soldiers why they were going to war, their answer was: "For Mom and for Apple Pie".

In 1970, advertisers used an advertising jingle in the patriotic essay: "Baseball, Hotdogs, Apple Pie and Chevy."
New Mexico has a city called Apple pie, named after Apple Pie.


There are lots of recipes for apple pie online. So for the apple pie day, prepare yourself or go eat apple pie in a cafe. The most delicious is an apple pie with a scoop of ice cream and whipped cream on the side. The apple pie day is celebrated in the US by apple pie eating, preparing the biggest pie contests and more.

May 13 is also Hummus Day

Pie Pastry Day - January 23

National Pie Day is an annual celebration of the pie pastry that takes place annually in the United States on January 23rd. Do not confuse pie day with pie day, which takes place on March 14.
The founder of Pie Day is a nuclear scientist, brewer and teacher named Charlie Papazian of Boulder, Colorado, who announced in the mid-1970s his personal birthday, January 23, as Pie Day. Since 1986 it has become a national day under the auspices of the American Pie Council.
In 2014, the American Pie Council collaborated with the film company Paramount to promote Pie Day and the romantic thriller film “Labor Day” which features a pie-making scene that appears prominently (the film was also released a few days after National Pie Day).

The Pie Board has distributed a poster of the film to pie shops and bakeries where the stars of the film, Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin and Gatlin Griffith are seen in the cake making scene. The choice of film to promote Pie Day has been criticized because the film tells the story of a fugitive killer who kidnaps from the supermarket a single mother and son and imprisons them in their home. Although a close bond is formed between them where they, among other things, make a pie together, but still, the choice is problematic. The poster reads: "It makes the time we spend together, just a little sweeter. Pie. Catch a slice of life."

The pie is a pastry in a round pan with low sides that are filled with salty or sweet fillings. The pie can be used as a cake with fruit, whipped cream, cheese, chocolate, custard, nuts, etc., or as a pie with meat or meat substitutes, fish, vegetables and more.
How to celebrate Pie Day?
Of course the best way to celebrate Pie Day is to eat your favorite pie, at home or in a cafe. Many cafes serve a pie with a savory filling or a sweet dessert with a scoop of ice cream and whipped cream next to it. If you are in the US, there are many businesses that offer slices of pie in honor of Pie Day at special discounts or even for free when buying a meal, you can see the list here.

All Souls' Day - November 2

Along with the holidays of Halloween, and the day after that, the Day of the Dead, there is another day that is celebrated in honor of the dead and it is called "All Souls' Day". All Souls' Day is a holiday that Catholic Christians celebrate every year, on November 2, in honor of their deceased loved ones.
The holiday is celebrated in many places in the world where there are Catholic communities and the celebration lasts more often than two days.


The holiday is celebrated with meals in memory of the dead and ceremonies in cemeteries with lit candles, marigold flowers (known in Spanish: Flor de Muerto - the flowers of death, which they believe call the spirits of the dead), incense, pictures or other souvenirs from the dead. Some people decorate with skulls that are made of paper or make and eat sugar skulls. There are also spectacular processions of skeletons and spirits, and cardboard coffins from which fake skeletons jump at random times.
In South America this day celebration is given special importance and has a special character. The traditional purpose of the holiday is to help, through prayer, the souls of loved ones who desire to be cleansed from their sins and come out of the addict to heaven.
The crucible is the place that is after death, between the world of life and heaven, where the soul of the one who has not sinned in his life sins of death is carried out. He who has committed the sins of death for which there is no atonement cannot pass purification and is condemned to hell.


Alaska Day - October 18th

Alaska is the northernmost and largest state in the United States. Its size is 1,717,855 square kilometers - more than double the area of the state of Texas. It is located at the northwestern tip of the American continent, northwest of Canada.

On January 3, 1959, Alaska joined the United States and became its 49th state.
Alaska's capital city is Juneau and its largest city is Anchorage.

Although Alaska is the largest state in the United States, it has very few people relative to the area. About 740,000 people live in the country at a density of 0.4 people per square kilometer.
Life in Alaska is not easy, but never boring. The temperature in Alaska drops to minus 30 degrees Celsius in winter and the maximum that can be reached in summer is around 20. There are also a lot of earthquakes in Alaska and also some active volcanoes.

Columbus Day- October 12th

On October 12, 1492, a small ship arrived from Spain with the ship's explorer, Christopher Columbus, spotted an unknown continent in the heart of the Atlantic Ocean.

Columbus thought he had come to India. He was the first of the West to document the new and unfamiliar continent.

In fact, Columbus is not the first European to come to America. Before him was Leif Erikson, an explorer of Icelandic countries. It is believed that Irakson was the first European to travel on the lands of North America (Newfoundland, Canada).

But let's go back to Columbus's journey: it began on August 3, 1492, when Columbus and his men left with three ships, from the port of Plus in Spain to the unknown, heading west.

During the voyage, Columbus and his crew went through many hardships recorded in his diary. On October 7, the crew noticed a bird flying west. They navigated the ship in the direction the bird flew, hoping to land. On October 12, at 2 am, the ship's driver, Rodrigo de Triana, suddenly shouted, "Dry! They all ran to the deck to see the earth poking out in the middle of the sea. They were sure they had reached the Far East, but they actually came to one of the Bahamas.

Columbus announced that the place would be called San Salvador. They went on to the island of Cuba and on 28 October docked in front of him. On December 8 they reached the island of Hispaniola.

When Columbus and his men returned to Spain, after one of the ships, Santa Maria, ran aground and drowned in the Caribbean, they brought presents from the island with them: parrots, fruit and some indigenous people.

Since Columbus thought they had come to the East, he mistakenly considered the indigenous to Indians, hence the name "Indiands." Columbus traveled three times to the new continent and claimed ownership of it. He found as many good things as the cocoa beans and the pearls.

Columbus thought he had come to India by the time he died. It was only in 1501, when Amerigo Vespucci arrived in America, that it was a new continent, and because it was Amigo who understood it, decided to call the continent of America, after him.

Columbus Day celebrates in the US, Canada and the Latin countries.

Constitution Day (or Citizenship Day) in the United States - September 17

US Constitution Day falls on September 17, the anniversary of the official signing of the American Constitution in 1787.

The Constitution of the United States is a document created in Pennsylvania, the United States, by hard work and many compromises by the indefatigable constitutional convention representatives - which led to an agreement between the US states that allows the central government the power to impose its decisions and allows the US to stand as an international force, While maintaining a reasonable level of independence in each country separately.

The Constitution, created in 1787, 11 years after the Declaration of Independence, is the supreme law, the highest and most binding legal instrument in the United States legal system and the foundation of the development of the United States as we know it today.

The Constitution of the United States is designed to protect the rights of the individual, equality of rights regardless of religion, race, gender and more.

In 1865, an amendment to the Constitution (No. 13) abolished slavery.

While the constitution was written, people of non-white races and women of all races were not allowed to vote in the elections. It was only in 1870 that the 15th Amendment to the Constitution allowed the Afro-Americans to vote. In 1920, women were allowed to exercise their democratic rights by the 19 th Amendment, and in 1924 the Native-Americans also had the right to vote.
