On April 3, Google’s main search page commemorated the 119th anniversary of the first documented ice cream sundae.
Every day commemorates something, but few things are as important as that famous misspelled confection.
However, I’d like to take some time discussing lesser known (and equally important) events.
If you’re from New England, or know some fanatic from New England (but aren’t they all?) then you probably know that April 18 (third Monday in April) is “Patriots’ Day.” Observed in Massachusetts and Maine, it commemorates the Battle of Lexington and Concord.
It also honors Paul Revere’s famous ride, warning the colonists of a British preemptive military strike. Just who did they think they were, attacking and occupying us like that?
Oddly enough, in Massachusetts, the holiday is called Patriots’ Day, whereas in Maine, it’s called Patriot’s Day. You would think that a state as big as Maine would have more than one Patriot.
And seriously — The shot heard ‘round the world? Oh yeah, sure. I doubt that even a Mechem NTW-20mm sniper rifle could be heard more than five miles.
