August 31, 2020 – National Trail Mix Day | National Matchmaker Day
Welcome to August 31st, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate food for the trail and those who set us up.
As summer winds down, it’s time to take advantage of the great outdoors while you still can. Hiking is a great way to get out into nature and grab a workout at the same time. And when you hit the trails, remember to take along some fuel. But not any old thing. Trail mix is the snack that was literally made for this! Its basic ingredients are fruits and nuts, but from there it’s okay to get creative. Add some chocolate chips, M&Ms, or pretzels. It just depends on how healthy you want to be. I mean, you’re out there getting exercise, so if you want some candy in there, go for it. Take a hike, my friend. It’s National Trail Mix Day.
Before online dating sites, the art of matchmaking was devised by a few brave souls who were willing to fire cupid’s arrows. Though the comic and tragic results are portrayed in Will Smith’s movie Hitch, there are some couples whose romances have been successfully arranged. When Katie Couric trusted her friends with the delicate task of setting up a blind date after her first husband passed, John Molner became her new perfect match. Meghan Markle’s only question to her friends that recommended Prince Harry, was, “Is he nice?” It appears that this fairy tale match ended nicely. And while not all celebrities can claim marital bliss, we think John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are doing just fine with two kids and two careers from two sides of the pond. Whoever put them together deserves two thumbs up. On National Matchmaker Day, here’s to the chemistry that can’t be found by an algorithm.
