      What Is Today


      Each year on the third Friday in May, millions of pizza lovers across the nation join in extolling the qualities of pizza on National Pizza Party Day. Celebrate by inviting friends and family to share a night of fun at your favorite pizzeria. Another way to celebrate is with a homemade pizza with fresh toppings or by having one delivered.

      • In ancient Greece, Greeks enjoyed bread covered with oils, herbs, and cheese.
      • In Byzantine Greek, the word was spelled “πίτα”, pita, meaning pie.
      • A sheet of dough topped with cheese and honey, then flavored with bay leaves was developed by the Romans.
      • The modern pizza had its beginning in Italy as the Neapolitan flatbread.
      • The original pizza used only mozzarella cheese, mainly the highest quality buffalo mozzarella variant which was produced in the surroundings of Naples.
      • It was estimated that the annual production of pizza cheese in the United States in 1997 was 2 billion pounds.
      • The first United States pizza establishment opened in 1905 was in New York’s Little Italy.
      • Pizza has become one of America’s favorite meals.

      The month of May is National Bike Month. National Bike to Work Day takes place on the third Friday in May.
      A growing number of various bicycle-related events will be held in communities nationwide during National Bike Month which includes National Bike To Work Day.
      In the United States, from the year 2000 to 2011, the number of bicycle commuters grew by more than 47 percent.
      National Bike to Work Day promotes the bicycle as a healthy and safe alternative for commuting to work.


      Each year on the third Friday in May, National Endangered Species Day is an opportunity for everyone to learn about the importance of protecting endangered species, their habitats and the actions necessary to do so. Every year you can participate along with thousands of others at events to celebrate National Endangered Species Day at wildlife refuges, zoos, parks, community centers, aquariums, botanical gardens, libraries and schools.

      The 40th anniversary of the Federal Endangered Species Act was observed in 2013.
      Designed to protect critically imperiled species from extinction as a “consequence of economic growth and development untempered by adequate concern and conservation.” The act was signed into law by President Richard Nixon on December 28, 1973.

      The Act is administered by two federal agencies, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).


      National Pack Rat Day is observed annually on May 17. This day encourages us to take a look at ourselves and see if we have “Pack Rat” tendencies within us. A “Pack Rat” holds on to, collects or hoards (often unneeded) items.
      “Pack Rat” can be considered an apt nickname for a hoarder. They may develop problems with compulsive hoarding. There are problems which may arise from compulsive hoarding which includes cluttered homes, yards, vehicles and other spaces. Doing so may become dangerous for themselves as well as others.

      Take a look around and maybe start cleaning out unwanted and unneeded items. If you need to, call a friend to come and help you get started. Once you clean out and clean up, you will feel good about what you have accomplished!


      Observed across the United States on the third Friday in May is NASCAR Day. This day is a celebration of NASCAR drivers, celebrities, corporate partners, media and millions of fans coming together to raise funds for charitable causes. “We believe our greatest asset is the power and passion of our NASCAR fans: passion both for the sport and for giving back. NASCAR Day is an annual celebration of this NASCAR spirit.”

      2019 celebrates the 16th year anniversary of NASCAR Day.
      Founded by the NASCAR Foundation in 2003 as a way to bring NASCAR family together to support the health and lives of children across the country.


      Across the country, May 17 marks the annual parade of academic achievement. National Graduation Tassel Day celebrates the accomplishments of every graduate!
      Auditoriums and stadiums will fill with proud family and friends excited to witness the commencement ceremonies of high schools, colleges, and universities. Tassels dangle from the mortarboards in the colors of their esteemed institutions. Gowns have been crisply pressed.
      Graduates, as your day arrives, square your shoulders, eyes steady on the future, pause to consider all your challenges to realize this moment. When your name is called, diploma in hand, move your tassel from right to left.


      National Defense Transportation Day is a United States Federal Observance Day held on the third Friday in May.
      A significant part of the U.S. economy is the vast network of transportation infrastructure. The cost of maintaining and investing in expansion is a constant balancing act.
      National Defense Transportation Day recognizes the importance of transportation and the people who support and protect the system in this modern era. As part of National Transportation Week, events and ceremonies will be held honoring and recognizing the importance of transportation in communities across the country.

      On May 16, 1957, Congress designated the third Friday of May each year as National Defense Transportation Day. In 1962, Congress included the whole week within which the Friday falls as National Transportation Week.” A proclamation is signed each year by the current President of the United States.


      May 17th recognizes a “nutty” holiday. Each year on this day, it is National Walnut Day.
      Rounded, single-seeded stone fruits of the walnut tree, walnuts are a high-density source of nutrients, particularly proteins and essential fatty acids. Like other tree nuts, walnuts must be processed and stored properly.
      Grown for their seeds, the Persian or English Walnut and the Black Walnut are the two most common major species of walnuts.

      • English Walnut
        – originated in Persia
        – commercially produced
      • Black Walnut
        – native to eastern North America
        – high flavor
        – hard shell and poor hulling characteristics prevent its commercial growth for nut production.

      The husk of the walnut, which is peeled away from the shell at harvest, and contain juice which will readily stain anything it comes in contact with. The husk juice has been used as a cloth dye.

      The United States is the world’s largest exporter of walnuts.
      Ninety-nine percent of the nation’s commercial English walnuts are produced in the Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys of California.


      On May 17, National Idaho Day recognizes the 43rd state to join the union.

      A wave of settlement made its way into The Gem State following in the footsteps of the Corps of Discovery. Miners, traders, and missionaries made their way West into the territory of the Nez Perce, Shoshone and Bannock peoples.

      The state is dominated by the Rocky Mountains range. Snake River winds its way through the rugged western border of the state carving the deepest river gorge in North America. Hells Canyon National Recreation Area provides spectacular views of the dramatic landscapes the Snake River took thousands of years to sculpt.

      Idaho doesn’t lack scenery. Take any byway, and the next turn will reveal a whole new vista to observe. For example, Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve will seem to erupt before your eyes. This vast lava field formed from ancient volcanic activity.

      While exploring Idaho, don’t forget to investigate Hagerman’s Fossil Beds. Excavations of these well-preserved fossils have fascinated paleontologists for generations. If there is an equine interest, be sure to study the Hagerman Horse, too!

      Beyond the fossils, entire cityscapes of stone appear. The City of Rocks encountered by native peoples, pioneers and modern-day adventurers became a kind of waystation or landmark for those who were westward bound.

      Inventors seem to like Idaho. Beyond the list of patents for improvements to printing presses and railroad technology, Idaho is the home of the television. Philo Farnsworth invented the necessary technology that brought the small screen to the mass market.


      National Cherry Cobbler Day is dedicated every May 17th to the delicious tart dessert that many enjoy with ice cream.
      In the United States, cobbler refers to a variety of dishes that consist of a fruit filling (cherry being a popular choice ) covered with a batter, biscuit or pie crust that is then baked. Some cobblers have both a top and bottom crust.
      Cobblers originated in the early British American colonies. It was because of the lack of suitable ingredients and proper cooking equipment that the English settlers were unable to make their traditional suet puddings, so to improvise, they covered a stewed filling with a layer of uncooked biscuits or dumplings.
      A cherry cobbler differs from a crisp as a cobbler lacks oatmeal. Sometimes the cobbler is topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

      Cherry Cobbler

      1/2 cup butter
      1 cup all-purpose flour
      1 cup white sugar
      1 teaspoon baking powder
      1 cup milk
      2 cups pitted sour cherries
      3/4 cup white sugar
      1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place the butter in a 9x13 inch baking dish, and place in the oven to melt while the oven is preheating. Remove as soon as butter has melted, about 5 minutes.
      In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of sugar, and baking powder. Mix in the milk until well blended, then pour the batter into the pan over the butter. Do not stir.
      Rinse out the bowl from the batter, and dry. Place cherries into the bowl, and toss with the remaining 3/4 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon of flour. Distribute the cherry mixture evenly over the batter. Do not stir.
      Bake for 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. A toothpick inserted into the cobber should come out clean.
