NOVEMBER 25, 2018 | BLASE’ DAY | NATIONAL PARFAIT DAY | SHOPPING REMINDER DAY
Blase’ Day is observed annually on November 25.
On Blase’ Day, we have permission to be blase’ toward just about anything.
Of French origin meaning to be indifferent or bored with life, unimpressed, as or as if from an excess of worldly pleasures.
Unimpressed by pumpkin spice everything? It’s okay to be blase’ about it today. Heard the same pop song for the 4th time today? Be blase’. Nothing on TV tonight? Just be blase’. Bored by your friend’s team winning their 266th game in a row? Yep, you got it. Whether it’s that 20 page Christmas letter, your mom’s constant picture taking or the fifth night of leftover pizza, you can be blase’.
HOW TO OBSERVE
There are also several ways to express your blase’ feelings. Meh. Yawn. Tune out. Use #BlaseDay to post on social media.
Blase’ Day was created by Thomas & Ruth Roy of Wellcat Holidays.
NATIONAL PARFAIT DAY
Usually served in a specially styled glass, layers of fruit, yogurt or ice cream, and nuts, chocolate or even whipped cream are the ingredients on National Parfait Day on November 25.
A French word that literally means perfect was originally used to describe a kind of frozen dessert beginning in 1894.
In the United States, parfaits are served in the traditional French style by layering parfait cream, ice cream, gelato or pudding in a clear, tall glass topped with whipped cream, fruit or liqueurs.
The Northern United States expanded on the parfait and began to use yogurt layered with nuts or granola or fresh fruits which may be, but are not limited to, strawberries, blueberries, bananas or peaches. This idea spread quickly across all parts of the country, and the yogurt parfait gained popularity as a breakfast item.
Times have changed over the years, and now parfaits are made up of almost any dessert combination that works well put into layers in a tall, clear glass, ranging from crushed Oreo cookies and cheesecake with whipped cream to angel food cake pieces and lemon cream filling with whipped cream.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Try one of the following parfait recipes:
