I read yesterday that December 21st was International Dalek Day. We'd better be careful.

(Otherwise Marvin, have a great birthday! I'll get a bottle of something out and raise one to you.)

As I understand these things, which is nowhere near as well as I should, Milad un-Nabi, or the Feast of the the Birth of the Prophet, is staring about now, here though the date given in most calendars is 24th December, which will be a public holiday here. Like many of the major feasts in both Judaism and Christianity in Islam they are taken to start at sunset the previous calendar day.

Of course as Islam uses the Lunar calendar the feasts move forward by about 11 days a year.

December 25. Of course there is a major holiday celebrated on this day....

Pumpkin Pie Day!

Of course, there are those who do not believe in Pumpkin Pie and are offended at the attention it gets. They insist on the use of the more generic "Happy Dessert Day."

As I'm British, am I allowed to call it "Happy Pudding Day"? [Big Grin]

As it happens, I don't like pumpkin pie; I don't often eat puddings anyway, but I'll make an exception tomorrow and have a spot of Christmas pudding.

January is "Hot Tea Month" as well as "Soup Month." I sense a theme...

As I had my first attempt at making proper pea soup yesterday (v. good - I'll be doing it again), I find that pleasingly appropriate.

When it's as cold as it gets here in January, making soup is the best way of dealing with it.

January 13 will be Skeptics Day. Or at least so they claim.

On a much more reasonable note, January 13 will also be Rubber Duckie Day! Woo hoo!

For the upcoming few days, January 17 is an interesting one for classic film fans, being the birthday of Noah Beery (1882), Carl Laemmle (1867) and Mack Sennett (1880).

January 18 is Martin Luther King Day in USA, but is also Winnie-the-Pooh Day (being also the birthday of A.A. Milne). One assumes Piglet will celebrate in style.

It's Burns Night!

Yesterday I was at a multicultural, multifaith event in St Andrews Cathedral, Aberdeen, listening to Burns being sung in Bengali, with Scottish musical accompaniment, and in Scots with Bengali musical accompaniment. Plus "A Man's a Man" sung by a Scouser with a banjo. Burns in a Scouse accent is surprisingly effective.

The late broadcaster Ludovic Kennedy told the story of crossing from Harwich to the Continent with his wife. The ship's captain was a Dutchman who spoke terrible English. On discovering that Kennedy was Scottish he insisted on reciting Burns to them. They cringed and resigned themselves to their fate but, to their great surprise, the captain recited really well.

Afterwards he explained that a lot of the voice sounds in Dutch are much like those found in Scots dialects.

I did the haggis, neeps and tatties last night before taking the children back. Of course, being quite young one who a year ago would eat haggis 'til it came out her ears has declared she doesn't like it (so, cook some sausages as well) and despite it being at least 3 years since I last cooked them neeps apparently I was supposed to know they don't like neeps (so, some frozen peas in the microwave as a quick veg substitute).

Tonight I'll be on my own, but I will raise a wee dram.

I remembered about it rather too late; I have been known to make the odd haggis and foist same on my unsuspecting friends, but haven't given it a thought this year.

I do, however, raise a metaphorical dram to those of you who'll be celebrating tonight.

February 6th is Waitangi Dayin Aotearoa/New Zealand. This marks the anniversary of the signing of a treaty between the British Crown and some Maori. It is regarded as our founding document, although hasn't always been honoured as such.

I'm posting today because on the 6th I will be commemorating the day and eating hangi* cooked food which I haven't had since Waitangi Day a few years ago.


* This is a traditional method of cooking food.
