NATIONAL WRONG WAY CORRIGAN DAY

July 17th is known as National Wrong Way Corrigan Day.

Douglas Corrigan was an Irish-American aviator who “accidentally” flew to Ireland on a flight from Long Beach, CA, to New York.  Apparently, Corrigan made a navigational error during his flight, caused by heavy cloud coverage…he somehow ended up in Ireland!  Was it a true error?  No one will never know, as Corrigan never admitted to intentionally flying to a different country.

July 17, 1938 is the Day Corrigan left New York but we are unable to determine who designated this “unofficial” National holiday.

HISTORY

Our research found that National Pig Day originated some time during early 1960 by two mathematicians named Michael Spivak and David Kelly.  As a result of an assignment given to the two gentlemen about the property of number 17, the yellow pig was created and a star was born…or is it a pig was born?
