Special Days Falling on October 22ndAs mentioned above, October 22nd happens to be an important date every year for many people around the world. Here are some of the reasons why.
International Stuttering Awareness Day
Stuttering can affect children just as it can affect adults. It is a disorder that makes the person speaking repeat themselves, using strange stops and creating sounds that block the flow of their speech. It can also lead to abnormal body movements that accompany impaired speech. Today’s a great day to learn more about the condition and how people live with it!
National Nut Day
Yes, really! There’s a whole day dedicated to nuts – whether you’re partial to a cashew or a Brazil nut, October 22nd is dedicated to these crunchy and often sweet snacks that grow all over the world. Nuts such as almonds, too, are fantastic flavor-adders for a variety of dishes and desserts. If you’re not a big fan of nuts, you might want to look the other way today – but if you’re the opposite, it’s a great excuse to grab a bag and have your fill.
International Caps Lock Day
NO ONE LIKES BEING SHOUTED AT VIA TEXT! However, today is dedicated to the wonderful caps lock key or button we all have on our computers and phones. It also serves as a means to remind us that using all caps in our conversations, tweets, and so on isn’t proper etiquette and can be misinterpreted!
