Tuesday is Global Beatles Day, Log Cabin Day, Catfish Day...

Our favorite suggestion for Tuesday, June 25 comes from Usual Suspects Days of the Year and Please Take My Children to Work Day.

Note the unsubtle difference between this microminiholidayette and Take Your Child to Work Day in the Spring. Tuesday may provide an opportunity for the overstressed parent to be rid of their offspring for a few hours while someone else takes the brats to work. Let's see, the kids have been home now for... what? A couple of weeks? Definitely time for a parental meltdown....

Our World may have been a pioneering program, but TV
images have become much clearer since 1967.

Tuesday is also Global Beatles Day. According to the linked website, the reason June 25 was chosen to honor John, Paul, George and Ringo is that, on June 25, 1967, at the height of the "Summer of Love," the Beatles performed "All You Need Is Love" for the very first time on a BBC program called Our World, the first live, international, satellite television production.

Tuesday is probably Log Cabin Day, although Usual Suspect (which seems to have given the matter a great deal of thought) notes that Log Cabin Day is sometime observed on the last Sunday in June or on June 25. We know of no similar controversy swirling around Catfish Day which appears to be definitely fixed in the calendar on June 25.

George Armstrong Custer made his "last stand" on June 25, 1876. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor was born on June 25, 1954.
