NATIONAL CORN ON THE COB DAY
June 11 of each year is the day to celebrate National Corn on the Cob Day. Fresh corn on the cob is a summertime treat that people from all corners of the United States look forward to as we start the picnic season.
Corn on the cob is also known in different regions as pole corn, cornstick, sweet pole, butter-pop or long maize. It is a sweet corn that is picked when the kernels are still tender when it’s in its milk stage.
Boiling, steaming, roasting or grilling are the most common ways of preparing corn on the cob. If it is grilled or oven roasted, the corn is usually left in its husk during the cooking process.
Proper dinner etiquette for eating corn says it is appropriate to hold the cob at each end with your fingers.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Get the butter and the salt shaker ready, gather up some friends, start your grill and enjoy some corn on the cob! For those with hankering for corn off the cob, use #CornOnTheCobDay on social media and tell the world!.

NATIONAL CALL YOUR DOCTOR DAY
The important event on the calendar the Second Tuesday of June will take less time to complete than reading this article and slightly more important. National Call Your Doctor Day reminds young women to schedule their annual Well-Woman Exam.
Making this day halfway through the year holds significance because so many women delay their routine care. Often placing the priorities of work, family members or other obligations before their health, women overlook the simple phone call that may save their life.
According to a 2015 survey by ZocDoc, 80 percent of Americans delay or forgo preventative care. The number increases to 93 percent when surveying Millennials.
National Call Your Doctor Day is the easiest celebration on the calendar. It can set an example for other women, help establish a baseline for many health concerns later in life and improve opportunities for identifying risk factors. By making the appointment and keeping it, you place a priority on staying healthy so you can continue to meet those important obligations in the future. It only takes a few minutes to commit to this one annual exam. You know people who have made more binding commitments in less time. This is one appointment you will want to keep and mark on the calendar again next year.
There may be an even quicker way to make the appointment than picking up the phone when you have an established relationship with a physician. With many clinics, you can set up an appointment online, quickly and securely.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Call your doctor and make an appointment for a Well-Woman Exam. Encourage your friends and family to do the same by using #CallYourDoctorDay to share on social media.
National Call Your Doctor Day was founded by Bright Pink, a women’s health non-profit, on June 21, 2016, to encourage young women to schedule their annual Well-Woman Exam. The Registrar at National Day Calendar declared Call Your Doctor Day in 2017.
NATIONAL GERMAN CHOCOLATE CAKE DAY
National German Chocolate Cake Day is observed by chocolate lovers annually on June 11.
Although the name may sound like the cake originated in Germany, it did not. The cake’s roots can be traced back to 1852 when American, Sam German, made a type of dark baking chocolate for the American Baker’s Chocolate Company. Baker’s German’s Sweet Chocolate’s brand was named in honor of Sam German.
Over 100 years later in 1957, a recipe for “German’s Chocolate Cake” appeared as the Recipe of the Day in the Dallas Morning Star. This recipe, created by Mrs. George Clay, used the Baker’s German’s Sweet Chocolate, and it became quite popular. During this time, General Foods owned the Baker’s brand and distributed Mrs. Clay’s recipe to other newspapers around the country. The current name of German Chocolate Cake, as we know it today, came to be as publications started dropping the ‘s.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Celebrate by enjoying a piece of German Chocolate Cake with friends. Include photos on social media using #GermanChocolateCakeDay.
