Your Special Day, March 5,1950

Did you know March 5 is "Multiple Personalities Day," and part of National Procrastination week? Did you know March is National Foot Month? National Peanut Month? National Frozen Food Month? Humorists' Month? Furniture Refinishing Month?

Charivari or shivaree--a mock serenade, with kettles, pans, horns, and other noisemakers, given for a newly married couple. Cowbells were popular choices.  Of course, the newlyweds were expected to entertain the group afterwards, even though their bedsheets might have been sewn together and their trash moved to the bedroom! Scandinavians practiced this ritual with enthusiasm.  

We hope your 50th Anniversary is a day of celebration and happy reflection. Whether the beverage of choice is sparkling apple cider, champagne, coffee, or tea; we know all who share in your happiness wish you many more "golden years" together. We are with you in spirit even though many miles separate us. Greetings from the Sedona, Arizona, Bloomquists. Bruce & Donna
