Happy Memorial Day (observed) Week!

Here's the latest article from the Today in History site at

Zany June Holidays
Ever wonder what to celebrate? How about National Pink Day? Or Dare Day? Or even Paul Bunyan Day! Don't know when these holidays are? They're all in the month of June--and there are plenty more...

Please visit for even more great content about Today in History.

Also, this week had a lot of very nifty things happen in history! Sir Edmund Hillary reached the top of Mount Everest, Stravinsky debuted his controversial ballet, “The Rite of Spring” in Paris, Dred Scott received his emancipation from his owners, and much more! There was so much, in fact, that I couldn’t decide just –what- to focus on, so I hope you don’t mind the information on the holidays for June. 
