October 25, 2020 – National Mother-In-Law Day | National Greasy Food Day

Is Your Mother-In-Law Magical Or Just Plain Spooky?

Welcome to October 25, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate magical mother-in-laws and greasy spoons.

Okay, we’re getting close to Halloween and if you think celebrating National Mother-In-Law Day is more than a little scary here’s something to lighten your spirits.  The most magical, fictional mother-in-law award goes to… Agnes Moorhead as Endora on Bewitched.  Not only did she possess witchy powers, she knew just how to wilt her son in law, Darren by simply refusing to call him by his real name.  Durwood, Darwin, Dum Dum, What’s his name… Rumor has it that she hung out with Atilla the Hun, so her mother-in-law wit was well sharpened.  If you can relate then celebrate this day any way you see fit.  Best to avoid being turned into a toad.  On the other hand if you have a gem of a Mother-In-Law you’ll probably want to count your lucky stars.

The name may not sound very nice, but there’s something great about a greasy spoon. I don’t mean a utensil you need to wash—I’m talking about a good old fashioned diner. Since the 1920s, diners have been an American favorite, and there’s no better place to get a quick meal—especially a late-night one. And what’s the best thing on the menu? It’s a matter of taste, but whatever it is, it’s probably fried. Yes, we try to avoid fried foods most of the time, but every so often, it’s great to live a little and gobble down a plate of fries, onion rings, or fried chicken. Even the healthiest person has a soft spot for some greasy food now and again. On National Greasy Food Day, celebrate this excuse for sidling up to the counter at your favorite local diner and taking the plunge.
