Two Interesting Holiday-notes

In someway, I think these two are connected but today is both CLEAN OUT YOUR REFRIGERATOR DAY and AMERICA RECYCLES DAY!


Always celebrated on November 15th.

Use this day to clean out your refrigerator, top to bottom. Everything in your refrigerator was once a fresh, healthy food, ready for your consumption. It may have been a tasty leftover, intended for later enjoyment. Unfortunately, over the course of weeks or more, things get pushed to the back and slowly transform into something impossible to identify.

Who wins the prize for the worst refrigerator surprises? Most often, it's workplace refrigerators.

Common speculation is that this day was created just in advance of Thanksgiving, to make room for holiday leftovers.



This is a day for promoting and educating others about the importance of recycling and buying recycled products. Remember the 3Rs-Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

I read somewhere, the other day, about Recycle Day coming up. We're good at recycling, we're just trying to work harder to get other people to recycle...I get so annoyed when people don't recycle. I guess I better clean out my refrigerator! And yes, I see the connection between the two.
