It’s another light wackiness day for December. We’ll have to make plans to make December a little wackier next year. Our first old English insult word is Lubberwort. The term is a nickname for a lethargic, fuzzy-minded person. Lubberwort was the name of an imaginary plant in the 16th century said to cause sluggishness or stupidity. Muck-spout refers to someone who constantly swears and talks a lot. Swearing has always been considered filthy language. Someone who talks a lot often says too much nonsense and we could call this filth too. It’s a good name for those rapid speech folks.
We have a couple of holidays and one of them I believe is the most important celebration in our lives. First, we have National Bicarbonate of Soda Day or Baking Soda Day. This versatile substance can be used in the kitchen for baking or eliminating odors among other things. Falling Needles Family Fest Day is a reminder to clean up and recycle the live Christmas tree. Firs and evergreens should only be used as firewood for outdoor firepits and never indoors. Now the important celebration I mentioned earlier. Today is Bacon Day. Bacon lovers unite as they enjoy eating bacon while watching Kevin Bacon films or any film with bacon in the title. It’s the best day ever!
