JUNE 26, 2018 | NATIONAL BEAUTICIAN’S DAY | NATIONAL CHOCOLATE PUDDING DAY
NATIONAL BEAUTICIAN’S DAY
For the shear love of all things hair, style and wisdom, June 26th is National Beautician’s Day. Also known as stylists and cosmetologists, these men and women make us look our best every day.
Cosmetology is the study and application of a beauty treatment. The branches of cosmetology include hair styling, skin care, cosmetics, manicures, pedicures, and electrology. This means they buff, polish, trim, pluck, perk, brighten, lighten, plump and mostly make our finest features shine. They continually train in the best ways to keep us looking our best while keeping up with the latest styles, the best products, treatments, and techniques.
Many also become close confidants. Over many years of caring for our hair and skin, they come to know our families and watch them grow, experiencing our ups and downs with us. As a result, we tend to develop a strong bond with our beautician. For all these reasons, they deserve to be appreciated on National Beautician’s Day.
HOW TO OBSERVE

NATIONAL CHOCOLATE PUDDING DAY
The food holiday National Chocolate Pudding Day is observed each year on June 26th. Chocolate pudding has been loved by children and adults for many years. Usually eaten as a snack or dessert, chocolate pudding is also used as a filling for chocolate creme pie.
Historically, chocolate pudding is a variation of chocolate custard, using starch as a thickener instead of eggs. The 1903 edition of Mary Harris Frazer’s Kentucky Receipt Book and the 1918 edition of Fannie Farmer’s Boston Cooking School Cook Book both have recipes for the earlier version, using both eggs and flour.
- In 1934, General Foods (Jello) introduced chocolate pudding mix as “Walter Baker’s Dessert.”
- In 1936, it was renamed “Pickle’s Pudding.”
Chocolate pudding is usually made with milk and sugar, flavored with chocolate and vanilla then thickened with flour or cornstarch. Some recipes do use eggs when making the pudding.
Chocolate pudding can be purchased ready-made and sold in grocery stores, convenience stores and gas stations. The popular brands include Jell-O by the Kraft Foods Corporation and Snack Pack by Hunt’s.
