July 29, 2020 – National Lipstick Day | National Lasagna Day

What is Your Favorite Shade?

Welcome to July 29th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we perk up our pucker with a gorgeous shade and lip smacking sauce.  More after the break from Anna Devere.

If you love to get attention for your perfect pucker, then you’re in some very good company.  While lipstick has been controversial throughout the ages: here are few who supported its use. It is believed that George Washington wore lipstick and Winston Churchhill thought that lip color boosted morale in an excellent way.  On the other hand, Queen Victoria thought it impolite to wear lip rouge and British Parliament in the 1770s banned its use, calling lipstick a devilish attempt to trick men into marriage.  No matter which side of the argument you find yourself on, National Lipstick Day celebrates the freedom to flaunt those gorgeous lips anyway you please. 

As Garfield the cat will tell you, lasagna is amazing. And what’s not to like: cheese, meat, pasta, tomato sauce – it’s heavenly. But making one from scratch is a labor of love. It takes longer than you think to boil the noodles, prepare the sauce, and other ingredients that are alternated in layers before being baked in the oven.  Maybe that’s why it’s considered a feast day dish in Italy for holidays such as Easter and Christmas.  But we do know this: lasagna has been around awhile.  In 1284 a famous Italian writer saw a hungry friar eating the dish and noted: I’ve never seen anyone stuffing himself on lasagna with cheese so pleasurably and so fully as him. No word if that friar’s name was Garfield. On National Lasagna Day, feast away at your local Italian restaurant or surprise your family with your own labor of love.
