Did you know…

… that today is Bob Hope Entertains the Troops Day? On this day in 1948, Bob Hope began his long tradition of annual Christmas tours when he agreed to entertain U.S. airmen in Alaska. Hope’s mildly irreverent humor, teamed with his variety troupe’s beautiful women, provided a welcome respite for the U.S. forces, a reminder, in Hope’s words, “of what they were fighting for.”

… that today, besides being Christmas in many countries (Merry Christmas, everyone!),  is Stars and Stripes Forever Day? In 1896, John Philip Sousa (aka The March King) wrote the melody to a song that had haunted him for days. On Christmas Day, that melody was finally titled, “The Stars and Stripes Forever.” So, if you want to hear something else besides Christmas songs, march to a tune of Stars and Stripes! 😉
