My love of unusual and under-the-radar holidays continues, and today we have two, yes two, to celebrate!
Today is Thomas Crapper Day, which commemorates the death of Thomas Crapper (Jan 27, 1910). Though Crapper did not invent the flush toilet (it had existed for the previous century) he perfected the flush mechanism, so he basically made the toilet what we know it to be today. And his name became synonymous with the toilet forever. Not sure why we have this holiday, but we do. How are you going to celebrate?
Today is also National Chocolate Cake Day, which has three objectives: To bake a chocolate cake, to decorate a chocolate cake, and to eat a chocolate cake. Not sure I will do either, as I am trying to take off a few pounds. And I prefer carrot cake. My extensive research did not find the creator or the origin of this day. I suspect Duncan Hines.
Let's hope that Chocolate Cake Day and Thomas Crapper Day are not in any way related...
