Underdog Day - The third Friday in December

Respect the anonymous heroes, those who no one expects them to win, those who win against all odds but quietly, without attention. These are the underdogs, the people who always expect them to lose or fail until they prove otherwise.


The history of the underdog day
The word underdog originally refers to people who worked in shipbuilding in the early 19th century, who stood in a dark pit and helped people upstairs saw planks. The ones above were called overdogs and they would get the credit for the hard work, while those below them, the underdogs, would get sawdust and dirt on their heads.
In 1976 Peter Müller founded the Underdog Day which aims to give respect to all the transparent workers, those who work hard and do not get adequate compensation for their work nor credit or thanks.
Nowadays underdogs have become popular in culture. No one expected Susan Boyle, the singer from Scotland, to reach number one on Britain's Got Talent. Even Forrest Gump, the crippled child with intellectual disabilities, did not expect to run for the American football team, be honored by the president and serve in Vietnam.
We love the Cinderella stories, the stories of the people who started from the bottom and reached the summit. The Voice program for example is based on a competition whose first criterion is only the voice, and the contestants are often people who started from a not so promising place and did not believe they would get far.
These people, the ones the teacher always told them nothing came of, are far more likable to us than the ones who from the moment they were born marked them as supreme talents and invested a fortune in them to live up to expectations. It is easier to identify with the underdogs, the ones who are imperfect, who make mistakes, who have had glorious failures. Among us, who among us does not dream of this moment when we will be glorified and everyone will understand that we are not just nerds, and what stars are we? This moment that we will become stars and show to anyone who has ever despised us from where the fish urinates.
In the world of work it is impossible without the underdogs. Although they are modest and quiet, without them it is impossible. They help behind the scenes for those who get the glory on stage, but how is it possible without them? Imagine Batman without Robin, Sherlock Holmes without Watson, or Robinson Crusoe without six? They will not succeed in life ...


How to celebrate Underdog Day?
One of the best ways to celebrate Underdog Day is to meet up with friends and watch movies whose star is an underdog, like Karate Kid, Rocky Kid, Sherlock Holmes, Forrest Gump, Kung Fu Panda and more.
It is also possible to make an underdog costume party where the participants dress up as famous underdogs.
Finally, do not forget Michael Jordan's quote - "I've failed over and over again in my life, and that's why I succeed."

Stress Awareness Day- First Wednesday of November

Stress affects us all. The stress of the workplace, the stress of not having a job, the economic stress, the stress in the family, it all causes our body systems to produce chemicals and hormones in response that if we do not release them, they can cause us significant physical and psychological damage.
Stress can be a real killer, both in the workplace and in our daily lives. In human biology, stress serves the purpose of survival - it is what makes us notice danger and decide whether to fight or run away, but modern life has led to an excess of reasons to feel stress that haunts us every day.


Mental stress causes the development of depression and anxiety, but it also has physical effects on the body. It can cause digestive problems, blood pressure, muscle aches, back pain, chest tightness, sleep disorders, sexual dysfunction, heart disease, migraines. Muscle cramps, hypersensitivity of the skin, diabetes, ulcers, damage to the immune system and more. There are studies that suggest that mental stress can lead to the development of cancer.
Stress Awareness Day is designed to raise awareness of the daily stress and promote the fight against depression and the anxiety it causes. It is designed to help individuals and organizations change behaviors and lifestyles that can lead to excessive stress.
The Stress Awareness Day was established by the International Association for Stress Management (ISMA) to help provide information on stress and strategies on how to address and address it for both companies and individuals.

When will the mental stress awareness day come out in the coming years?

Jellyfish Day - November 3

Jellyfish by Tuomas_Lehtinen -
True, this sounds weird, but November 3rd is dedicated to jellyfish - it's International Jellyfish Day.

In honor of Jellyfish Day, here are some interesting facts about the transparent animals that live in the sea and surprise us with unpleasant bites and burns:

Some jellyfish are larger than humans and some are smaller than the pin.

Some countries eat jellyfish, for example in Japan.

Jellyfish are such ancient creatures. They were on Earth 700 million years ago, even before the dinosaurs.

The jellyfish does not have a brain, heart and bones but it has several types of eyes.

The jellyfish consists mainly of water and protein.

A group of jellyfish is called Smack.

Jellyfish can adapt to any type of water and to any depth of water pool.

Most jellyfish live less than a year and there are species that live only a few days.

The largest jellyfish recorded in the world is the lion's mane jellyfish, which can reach over 2 m (6 ft 7 in) in diameter.

Most jellyfish bites are just stinging and unpleasant, but there have also been cases of fatal bites: In Thailand, a 5-year-old boy died from a cubic jellyfish bite in August 2014. In 2002, two tourists in Australia died from an Iroquois jellyfish bite.

Jellyfish have millions of cells in the body called nematocysts and they contain a burning substance. These cells are used by them to capture their food by injecting a toxin into the prey. This is why it stings us when we touch a jellyfish.

Jellyfish eat many different types of things, such as small plants (phytoplankton), copepods (crayfish zooplankton), fish eggs and small fish larvae. They also eat the eggs and young larvae of the plankton and many other different types of marine animals. There are also jellyfish that eat other jellyfish!

What is good about jellyfish?
Jellyfish are very important creatures in the ocean and the great ocean. They are used as food for a number of marine animals such as fish and large turtles. They provide habitat for many small fish and they also sometimes protect small fish from being eaten by large predators with the help of their stinging cells. Also, many young crabs catch rides at the top of jellyfish so they do not have to swim.

 November 3 is also Housewife's Day and Sandwich Day

Techies Day - October 3rd

Today is a day of appreciation for all the people who work and engage in advanced technology - high tech, who lead the world to progress and turn it into a global village where everyone can communicate with everyone, no matter how far apart they are, and everyone can know everything about everyone.


This day was founded in 1999 by the website with the support of the CNET network who wanted to express appreciation to all students and workers in the technology and high-tech professions and encourage high school students to choose technology studies.
Things that used to be so hard and slow, like sending messages to each other, or taking pictures, or watching movies and reading books, are now fast and easy thanks to high tech.


High-tech also supports the military, both in terms of weapons and defense and also in terms of intelligence.


There are those who envy high-tech people who have high salaries and good conditions, and seemingly just sit all day in the office and make no effort, but people who work in high tech need to mobilize all their thinking and concentration, and work hard for long hours to achieve results that allow us an easy and comfortable life. More.
To celebrate High Tech Day, you can simply send an email of thanks and appreciation to someone in high tech, reminding him that without people like him, the world would go back, to the days of letters getting lost in the mail, to the paper map days you had to read yourself, to the days of manual camera photos Send for development in the store and takes a few days to develop, for days without internet and more ...


International Coffee day - October 1


International Coffee Day falls on October 1 every year. This is a holiday for all coffee lovers who are basically just about everyone. 

To read more about Coffee Day, click on the link.

Everyone talks about the coffee they prefer, when and in what position. One prefers latte coffee before bed and the other granita on a successful date. She prefers chocolate in the winter under the warm blanket (how can it not be spilled on her?), And you? You just love an old-fashioned instant coffee.

Especially for you we have prepared the following short dictionary, of types of coffee, so that you can re-examine your preferences or at least understand what everyone is talking about.

Espresso - a strong black coffee that is prepared by pouring hot water under steam pressure through finely ground beans. Thick and bitter coffee with a reddish-brown foam on the upper edges, which indicates the quality of the pouring.

Latte - a drink consisting of half an espresso with whipped milk. Latte has an amount of about an inch of frothed milk.

Cappuccino - a drink consisting of an espresso, a third cup of hot milk and a third cup of frothed milk. Not recommended for those on a diet.

Iced coffee - coffee of any kind with the addition of ice. When making iced coffee it should be made more concentrated as the ice cubes that are added to it dilute its flavor. You can sweeten the cold coffee with sugar water (hot water containing dissolved sugar). Vanilla, mocha or walnut extracts can be added to iced coffee.

French vanilla - a drink made from an espresso dish with cold milk, with the addition of vanilla flavors.

Filter - coffee that is prepared by pouring hot water through a container with a filter containing coffee beans. The water absorbs the taste and aroma through the coffee beans and arrives in the glass as a fine coffee drink.

Parfait - a cold drink consisting of instant coffee powder dissolved in water and whipped with the addition of milk. The parfait can be upgraded using various flavor additions or using Irish coffee or Bayliss.

Irish Coffee - Coffee with Irish whiskey. Irish coffee is prepared by pouring a long espresso or filter coffee with sugar into a glass of whiskey. Then pour sweet cream so that two layers are formed in the glass: one dark layer of whiskey coffee and a white layer of cream on top, through which the bitter coffee is drunk.

Granita - a drink made of ice in various flavors such as oranges, lemon, mint, strawberry or almond. This is basically iced coffee.

Macchiato - espresso stained with frothed milk. Add a teaspoon of frothed milk to the espresso and you have a macchiato. The opposite drink is latte macchiato: hot frothed milk with a touch of a teaspoon of espresso.

Instant coffee - coffee powder that is prepared by grinding roasted coffee beans to a fine, cooking them at a high temperature and low pressure when as a result of this process the water evaporates and a concentrated coffee residue remains, which is dried into a powder. Mix a teaspoon of this powder with boiling water, milk, sugar or sucrose Instant coffee drink.

Americano - espresso with added water. The hot water that is added to Americano does not pass through the coffee beans and therefore does not strengthen the espresso flavor. The amount of water added to Americano determines the strength of the drink.

Decaffeinated - For those who do want to sleep well at night or for those whose doctor advised them to avoid caffeine, coffee that contains a small percentage of caffeine. According to the international standard it must contain less 97% caffeine and according to the European standard 99.9% caffeine.

It does not matter what coffee you like to drink, how, when and with whom - we wish you a happy International Coffee Day!

October 1 is also Raccoon Appreciation Day

Eating dark chocolate every day reduces the chance of developing heart disease by a third.

Couples in love synchronize the heart rate they look at each other in the eyes for three minutes.

Letter Writing Day - September 1st

When was the last time you held a pen in your hand and used it to write a letter on paper in your handwriting? Emails and text messages in apps are amazing ways of communication. We write something to someone and he gets it right away, but letters on the other hand are kept in a special and personal place.
Letter Writing Day is a special day that falls on September 1 of each year, when the dust is removed from the stationery, pens and envelopes and a letter is written that is sent by mail, not by computer or smartphone. It is also a day to learn the art of letter writing.
In this digital age that all messages are sent by electronic ways, it is almost inconceivable to sit down and compose a letter. However, according to studies, there are good reasons not to give up writing letters completely.

Here are some great reasons to write a letter:

This is a thoughtful way to communicate with those you love.
The recipient of the letter can keep your letter for years.
It has been found that people who write thank you letters are aware and happy with life.
This is a great way to strengthen a friendship, marriage or other significant relationship.
It can help someone better understand your point of view or your position on a particular issue.
Your older friends and relatives will cherish this traditional form of communication.
If you have a beautiful handwriting, this is a way to demonstrate your writing skills.
Another reason to write a letter instead of text or email is that it forces you to really think about what you are writing. Too often, we quickly send texts and emails without really thinking about the impact our words have on the recipient. With the help of a handwritten letter, we are forced to be more careful in choosing the words.

If you have never written a letter, all you need to know is the parts it needs to include. These sections include your date, greeting, letter body, closing and signature.

The history of the day of writing the letters
The day of writing the letters was founded by Richard Simpkin in 2014. In the late 1990s Simpkin wrote letters to people who were considered an Australian legends. He was very moved when these legends replied to him in a letter. In 2005 Simpkin published his book Australian Legends. His excitement at the letters that enabled the project led him to create a day dedicated to letter writing. To help promote letter writing, Simpkin does letter writing workshops in schools and encourages adults to take a break from social media and write a letter.

How to celebrate the day of writing the letters?
The best way to celebrate this day is to write a letter to someone. It could be a friend or relative who lives miles away from you or someone you have lost touch with over time. The recipient of your letter can even be your spouse, parent or best friend. Other ways to celebrate this day are to learn the correct method of writing a handwritten letter, to teach someone to write a handwritten letter, to read historical letters written by famous people and more.

Black Cat Appreciation Day - August 17

"A Black Cat Crossing Your Path Signifies That the Animal Is Going Somewhere"
~ Groucho Marx

The black cat got a bad name because of superstitions in certain cultures.
Black cats are often associated with bad luck and therefore less cared for and when they are in animal adoption associations, the chances of them being adopted are smaller and therefore often need to be put to sleep to end their lives.

Bikini Day- 5 July

Bikini Day is the bikini's birthday invented on July 5, 1946 by Louis Réard, who was actually a car engineer. He offered the bikini to his mother who had a clothing company and gave the bathing suit the name Bikini for the island where atomic experiments were being held, because he claimed the swimsuit he invented would generate "atomic" enthusiasm.

Louis Réard - the creator of the bikini

As part of this day's celebration, go to the nearest beach or take a good deal for a vacation where there is a sea or pool, spend the day with your bikini and if you don't like to wear a bikini, at least wash your eyes with the one who is wearing it!

UFO Day- July 2

World UFO Day is celebrated on July 2 each year to raise awareness of the existence of UFOs and to encourage governments to remove the secrecy of the information about the UFO sighting.

The date July 2 was chosen to commemorate the first famous case in which an unidentified object was observed in the sky. The pilot Kenneth Arnold reported on June 24, 1947, that he saw nine flying saucers in the skies of the United States and on July 2, a Roswell incident took place, in which an UFO crashed near the town of Roswell, New Mexico, United States. A few days later, on July 8, 1947, the bodies of aliens and other items of extraterrestrial technology were rescued from the UFO.
