April 25, 2020 – National Telephone Day | National Sense of Smell Day
Transcript for April 25th
Welcome to April 25th, 2020 as we bridge the social distance on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate “connection” and the way it affects two of our senses. More after the break from Anna Devere.
Most of us know that our sense of smell is essential to experiencing taste, but are you aware of its profound effect on our emotions or mood? If you’re feeling anxious or stressed, pause to breathe in an essential oil or peel an orange and enjoy the bliss that sunny citrus can provide. Take an olfactory walk down memory lane by polishing up your old catcher’s mitt or baking a favorite family recipe. You’ll be surprised how celebrating National Sense of Smell Day lifts your spirits.
“Mr. Watson, come here. I want you.” Those were the very first words ever spoken on a telephone, from Alexander Graham Bell to his partner Thomas Watson, way back in 1876. In the nearly 150 years since then, this invention has changed the world. Yes, the phone has transformed into a hand-held computer, but its main purpose remains the same: bringing people together. On National Telephone Day bridge the gap between you and those you love with a text, call, or video chat and celebrate the device that is as miraculous today as the day it was invented.
