January 5, 2021 – National Whipped Cream Day | National Screenwriters Day
Do You Know The Screenwriter Who Wrote Your Favorite Movie?
Welcome to January 5th, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate sweet success and the wizards of words.
The first recipes for whipped cream date back to 1549 when they were already calling it “snow milk.” These early chefs were likely whipped after an hour of beating the cream with a willow branch, a technique that lasted for the next few centuries, until a clothing salesman from St. Louis changed all of that. During WWII when cream was rationed, Aaron “Bunny” Lapin began pedaling Sta-Whip, a substitute made of light cream and vegetable oil. Then in 1946 Crown Cork and Seal Company made the first seamless aerosol canister and Lapin put Sta-Whip on the map. With a shiny, red lithographed can, a new product name and an army of milkmen to deliver it, Reddi-wip made Lapin a fortune in only a few short years. On National Whipped Cream Day pile on a little extra and sing happy birthday to Bunny Lapin, if you’re so inclined.
Alfred Hitchcock once said, “To make a good film, you need three things, the script, the script, and the script.” Without stories, we wouldn’t have TV or movies. Even if a book is used as the basis for a film, a screenwriter still needs to adapt the storyline so it works on the big screen. And unless you sit through the credits, you probably won’t know who wrote the screenplays for your favorite blockbusters. This is your chance to start noticing these architects of every great story and juicy role. On National Screenwriters Day take time to find out who is responsible for making your favorite shows especially entertaining.
