Past few days I was lazy and didn’t post these “Did you know…”


Did you know…

… that today is First Recorded Aurora Borealis Day? The first recorded sighting of the aurora borealis took place in New England on this day in 1719. This natural light display is brought about by the collision of energetic charged particles from outside the atmosphere with atoms from the upper atmosphere. The Northern Lights, as they’re commonly called, generally occur in bands, curtains, or streamers of red, green, blue, and violet light.

“The only way to get what you really want is to know what you really want. And the only way to know what you really want is to know yourself. And the only way to know yourself is to be yourself. And the only way to be yourself is to listen to your heart.”

Did you know…

… that today is Charlie Brown Christmas Premiere Day? This day in 1965 brought us the much-loved animated television special, A Charlie Brown Christmas. It has since been honored with both an Emmy and Peabody Award. It became an annual broadcast in the United States and has been aired during the Christmas season traditionally every year since its premiere. How to celebrate? By watching the show, of course! 😉
