T-Shirt of the Day for Independence Day!

4 Jul

Is there anyone who doesn’t know today is July 4 and the Independence Day of the USA?

July 4 is not the day the US won independence from Great Britain, but the day independence was declared by the signing of the Declaration of Independence. On June 28, 1776, Thomas Jefferson submitted his draft of the Declaration of Independence. Independence was declared on July 2, but the Declaration was officially adopted by Congress on July 4. Most historians believe it was not actually signed until August.

In an exceedingly strange coincidence of history, the only two signers of the Declaration of Independence who later served as presidents of the United States, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, both died on the 50th anniversary of Independence Day: July 4, 1826.

T-Shirt of the Day Award for World UFO Day

2 Jul

Heads up! It is officially World UFO Day today!

July 2, 1947, is the date on which a rancher near Roswell, New Mexico, discovered a strange metallic object on his ranch. Authorities were contacted and removed the object. Rumors that it was a wrecked space craft have hovered ever since, as a big favor to Hollywood. World UFO Day is not an official national holiday but the day on which the organizers rally to get government to admit there is a cover-up and Earth has been visited by aliens.

T-shirt of the Day Award for Paul Bunyan Day!

28 Jun

Stories about Paul Bunyan, the giant lumberjack with his blue ox, Babe, have been around since the 1830s. Today is his day!

The legend of Paul Bunyan may have actually originated in Canada – in fact, “Bonyenne” is a colloquial French-Canadian expression of astonishment the approximate equivalent of “good grief” or “my goodness” – but he was quickly adopted into American folklore, where tales of his prowess continued to grow. His stories were not written down until nearly a century after they began circulating, starting in 1910 by U.S. journalist James MacGillivray.
