JULY 2ND, 2013 – NATIONAL I FORGOT DAY – NATIONAL ANISETTE DAY

NATIONAL I FORGOT DAY

Who were you supposed to wish a happy birthday to today?  Did you forget?  If you did, then today is fitting for you.  July 2nd celebrates National I Forgot Day. This day is one to simply “not remember”.  If you have ever wished you had an excuse for those things you somehow let slip your  mind, today you have it! You can celebrate today by just letting yourself forget.

Some celebrate today a bit differently.  Another way to enjoy National I Forgot Day is to make good with all of the things/days/events that you forgot to acknowledge.  Send a card or greeting to that certain someone and apologize for “forgetting” it.

A third and final way to look at, or celebrate,  National I Forgot Day, is to take any bad memory that you have stored (or if you are just having a bad day) and simply – FORGET it!

NATIONAL I FORGOT DAY HISTORY

The creator of National I Forgot Day is  Gaye Anderson from DeMotte, IN.  She created this special day because of a period in her life when she was having a hard time remembering things.  Instead of getting flustered, she created this day to relax and just let herself -forget-.  Gaye doesn’t quite remember (believe it or not!) when she created this day, but thinks it must have been about 10 or so years ago.

NATIONAL ANISETTE DAY

Today we can celebrate National Anisette Day.  To join in on the celebration, go let yourself have a drink.  In fact, go get a drink made with Anisette!  Anisette is an anise-flavored liqueur that is made by distilling aniseed and sometimes adding a sugar syrup.  Anisette is popular in Spain, Italy, Portugal and France.

True Anisette should not be drunk straight, as its alcoholic content is high enough to cause irritation to the throat. However, mixing it in with coffee, gin, bourbon or most commonly, water,  will bring out a bit of a sweet flavor.  To enjoy this sweetness, without drinking, you can make Anisette cookies!

If you are one to grab all of the black jelly beans at Easter, you will surely enjoy today and the drink that makes it special, Anisette.  Although Anisette does not contain licorice, it does have that sort of distinct flavor.
