NATIONAL AUNT AND UNCLE’S DAY
Aunt and Uncle’s Day is celebrated annually on July 26th. Spending holidays together, special family times and sometimes sleepovers, aunts and uncles often form a special place in our hearts and fill our lives with fun, laughter, love and wonderful memories. They are people we can turn to and trust and we know that they will be there for us.
Today we are thankful for our moms and dads, brothers and sisters and want to let them know that and just how special they are to us and the important part they play in our lives. It would be a good time to get out the old photograph albums and look through the pictures, reliving memories of earlier days around the Christmas tree or at the 4th of July picnic or maybe at the beach vacation that was spent with your special aunts and uncles.
To celebrate National Aunt and Uncle’s Day, give them a call, stop by for a visit, send them a card or a bouquet of flowers or maybe take them out for a nice dinner. Take photos with them and post them on social media using #AuntAndUnclesDay

NATIONAL BAGELFEST DAY
National Bagelfest Day is observed annually on July 26th.
This crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle bread is very popular in the USA and Canada. Served with a variety of toppings as well as produced in a variety of flavors, bagel shops are a staple in most communities across the country.
Bagels were brought to the United States by immigrant Polish-Jews, with a thriving business developing in New York City that was controlled for decades by Bagel Bakers Local 338, which had contracts with nearly all bagel bakeries in and around the city for its workers, who prepared all their bagels by hand. The bagel came into more general use throughout North America in the last quarter of the 20th century, which was due at least partly to the efforts of bagel baker Harry Lender, his son, Murray Lender, and Florence Sender, who pioneered automated production and distribution of frozen bagels in the 1960s. Murray also invented pre-slicing the bagel.
Grab some bagels and post on social media using #NationalBagelfestDay to encourage others to join in.
The day is credited to Murray Lender, owner of Lenders Bagels. In 1986, Murray started the festival in Mattoon, Illinois, home of the worlds largest bagel factory.
