Welcome to April 26, 2022 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate big discoveries and shaking things up. There are many one-named celebrities out there, but none as big as Sue. She’s a big deal. Literally. Sue the T. Rex is the largest and most intact fossil of the dinosaur species ever found. The discovery was made in the South Dakota Badlands in 1990 by Susan Hendrickson, who lent the T Rex her name. Sue (the dinosaur, not the person) is over 40 feet long and 13 feet tall at the hip. The fossil was in such good shape that museums got into a bidding war over it. When all was said and done, Sue the T Rex sold for over .5 million. On National South Dakota Day, celebrate the Mount Rushmore State from the Badlands to the Black Hills and everything in between. The West Coast of the United States is a beautiful place that has seen its fair share of earthquakes. In fact, the earthquake that rocked San Francisco in 1906 is one of the biggest on record. The state’s frequent seismic activity inspired Charles Richter to develop a way to measure them. This formula, which we know as the Richter Scale, records the magnitude of earthquakes and earth tremors. It’s roughly based on a factor of 10. In other words, a Category 4 earthquake isn’t a small increase from Category 3, it’s ten times the size. Thanks to his work, scientists are able to categorize and study the phenomenon that literally shakes things up. On National Richter Scale Day, we celebrate the guy who helps us get a grip on an otherwise rocky world. I’m Anna Devere and I’m Marlo Anderson. Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.

Welcome to April 25, 2022 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate ringing up old friends and weird science. The first call ever made on a telephone lasted only a couple seconds. But the duration didn’t matter to its inventor Alexander Graham Bell, who was ecstatic that his device worked. But he would’ve positively freaked out if he witnessed the call between two Harvard University students in 2012. Eric Brewster and Avery Leonard spoke on the phone for a record-setting 46 hours, 12 minutes, and 52 seconds. So what were they talking about? Everything. It was part of an art installation and by the time the call was over, it’s safe to say they were probably ready for lots of silence. On National Telephone Day, celebrate by ringing up an old friend to catch up. We’ve all heard stories about children switched at birth, but this story takes the cake. When Lydia Fairchild, a pregnant mother of two found herself in an economic pinch, she decided to apply for government assistance. Imagine her surprise when a DNA test revealed that her children were not her own. She was so upset by the implications of fraud that she asked for a government witness to be present at the birth of her third child. Now here’s where it gets strange. An immediate test of the newborn confirmed that the child was not Lydia’s either. This case had experts so baffled until science determined that Lydia was a “chimera.” She herself had absorbed her own twin while developing in utero and it was her twin’s DNA that showed up during testing. On National DNA Day, celebrate the weird science that may only reveal one piece of the truth. I’m Anna Devere and I’m Marlo Anderson. Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.

Welcome to April 24, 2022 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate the pets in our hearts and pigs in a blanket. Audrey Hepburn was one of the first celebrities to go everywhere in public with her dog. Mr. Famous, her Yorkshire Terrier, was along for photo shoots and Hollywood events. This wasn’t common practice at the time and it helped make pets seem more like family. When asked why her dog was always with her, Hepburn said “I walk my dog to keep me fit. I talk to my dog, which keeps me sane.” Pet parents everywhere can likely relate. There’s nothing quite like a furry friend to make you feel better at the end of a long day. On National Pet Parents Day, we celebrate the special bond between people and their pets. If you’ve ever paid attention to the party food that disappears faster than any other snack on the buffet table, then you’ll know: it’s pigs in a blanket. Why are these tiny hotdogs wrapped in dough so darned popular? Maybe it’s because they remind us of childhood: baseball games with our dad, or the time your family went to the state fair. Or maybe it’s because there’s some magic formula that makes eating a dozen of them feel better than downing a full-sized hotdog! On National Pigs In A Blanket Day, throw yourself a party and celebrate making these piggies disappear. I’m Anna Devere and I’m Marlo Anderson. Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.

On #ApplePieDay, "If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe."
"One of the most complete and underrated crafts is celebrated today, as it is National Bartender Day. Part janitor, part charmer, part shrink, part recipe encyclopedia, all grind. My people. Cheers!"
“What I found useful was the discovery of an even higher power, if you will, of national calendar days: an organization called National Day Calendar”
