NATIONAL CLEAN OUT YOUR REFRIGERATOR DAY
National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day is observed annually on November 15. Get together a soap and hot water filled bucket, disinfectant, a sponge and a garbage bag, and you are ready for the day!
The timing is perfect for this day as Thanksgiving is coming soon. We will need room for all of the upcoming leftovers. This job may be dreaded by many, but it is an important task none the less. Due to our hectic and busy lifestyles, the cleaning of the refrigerator gets neglected, hence the creation of National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day. There may be a surprise or two found at the back of the shelves. Things are often pushed back as new food is put in the front and gets forgotten.

NATIONAL BUNDT DAY
National Bundt Day, also known as National Bundt Cake Day is observed every year on November 15. As people across the United States are planning their menu for the upcoming holidays, a bundt cake is sure to be on the list at least once.
A bundt cake can be any cake baked in a Bundt pan, forming it into a distinctive ring shape. The mold of the Bundt pan was originally inspired by the traditional European fruit cake known as Gugelhupf. It was in the 1950s and 1960s that cookware Nordic Ware popularized the style for the mold design and trademarked the name Bundt. Nordic Ware started producing Bundt pans made from cast aluminum. Similar pans are sold as “fluted tube pans” or other similar names.

NATIONAL SPICY HERMIT COOKIE DAY
National Spicy Hermit Cookie Day is observed annually on November 15.
Today honors an old-fashioned cookie spiced with cinnamon, cloves, allspice and sometimes nutmeg and filled with raisins, nuts and dates.
Hermit cookies originated in the New England area. In 1880 the young ladies of the Trinity Church, Plattsburgh, New York published the cookbook Champlain Valley Book of Recipes with a Hermits recipe. This was a local cookbook in its 3rd edition suggesting it was first printed a year or two earlier. Soft and chewy, these cookies are sure to put a smile on the face of all who taste them.

NATIONAL PHILANTHROPY DAY
National Philanthropy Day is observed annually on November 15.
Philanthropists are honored for their many significant contributions, help and good deeds and for the differences that they have made in our lives and our communities.
The word philanthropy comes from Latin and Greek philanthropia which gives us kindliness, humanity and love to mankind. From this, we take the philo (tending to, fond of) and join antropos meaning mankind or human beings.
There are instances of philanthropy that can overlap with instances of charity. The difference is that charity relieves the pains of social problems, whereas philanthropy attempts to solve those problems at their root causes.
