day 39

Today is the 4th day of the 6th week, the 8th day of the 2nd month, the 39th day of 2023 [with only 319 shopping days until Christmas], and:
  • Boy Scouts Day
  • Laugh and Get Rich Day – yeah laughter is the best medicine, health and well-being are riches beyond measure, got it.  Now you definitely can get rich by making other people laugh, but given the number of tragic comedians,
  • National Kite Flying Day – always thought that was in March?  You know the old “in like a lion” schtick?
  • National Molasses Bar Day
  • Opera Day – World Opera Day is on October 25th, so I don’t know why we’re doing this today
  • Propose Day – did you know that in India, they celebrate Valentine’s WEEK not just a day?  Yesterday was Rose Day
  • Wear Orange Day -  to raise awareness of teen dating violence
On this day in 1894, the Hershey’s Chocolate company was founded as a subsidiary of the Lancaster Caramel Company by Milton Hershey.  From 1930 – 1945 the company embarked on what they called “The Great Works Project” to create jobs locally, and Hershey Park was born. 
One of the field trips I remember going on in elementary school was to what is now called “Hershey’s Chocolate World”, which back then, was considered part of Hershey Park.  We got to walk through the factory, watched the candy-making machines, and even were allowed to take a candy – I remember getting a caramel cream.  I am not quite sure about the educational value of the trip, but it sure was a fun day for us all, even tho my mother always went along as a chaperone.  By the time my kids went, you were no longer allowed to wander thru the factory, but just stood at windows where you could look down at the factory floor, which wasn’t nearly as much fun as it was a merchandising opportunity, and the amusement park was a separate destination.  It is still a very popular local destination for those who like thrill rides!

My granddaughters schools don’t seem to do as many field trips as I remember us doing, I wonder why?
