December 11, 2020 – National Noodle Ring Day | National App Day
Did You Know The First App Was a Video Game Called Snake?
Welcome to December 11th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate the little things that connect us to the world and our inner child.
National Noodle Ring Day celebrates the round shaped pasta that kids love to eat. This time of year, noodle rings make their way into craft projects too, proving that it’s okay to play with your food. Grownups can celebrate with a casserole dish made from pasta, breadcrumbs, cheese, eggs and seasonings that is formed into a ring shaped pan. Like a noodle ring snowflake, no two celebrations are alike, but noodle rings bring the fun for everyone!
In 1997, the Nokia 6110 phone introduced a simple arcade game called Snake, which is considered by many to be the first mobile app. Almost 20 years later the iPhone was released and with it users could access nearly 500 apps. Today iPhone users can choose from almost 1.8 million of them and Android users have about 2.5 million. From navigation to learning and even performing surgery, apps have transformed our everyday lives. While they have come a long way from that first game of Snake, apps are still used to entertain us and keep us in touch with family and friends. On National App Day, celebrate the convenience of your favorite apps by sharing them with those you love.
