Fun Observances

Bicarbonate of Soda Day

December 30 is Bicarbonate Of Soda Day. Also known as baking soda, sodium bicarbonate is one of the most commonly found chemical compound in households.

While the origins of this holiday are unknown, we can all safely assume that whoever created this holiday, not only wanted to give a shout out to one of the most used chemical compounds in the history of mankind, but also wanted to encourage people to use it more and more in their daily lives.

Multi-Purpose Household Item

Commonly used these days in baking, cleaning, polishing old silverware and treating heartburn, bicarbonate of soda was used by ancient Egyptians for painting.

Known by Many Names

The compound's scientific name is sodium hydrogen carbonate, but it is known by many other names around the world. Some of the common ones are baking soda, cooking soda and bread soda.

How to Celebrate?

  • Learn about the history of the manufacturing and use of baking soda.
  • Learn what other things you can use baking soda for.
  • Build a baking soda and vinegar volcano at home.

Did You Know…

…that baking soda is a very versatile household product? Use it to deodorize your fridge, to clean tea and coffee stained cups and teapots, and clean household surfaces.

Because it was my brother's birthday, our mom wanted to do something special. She called his fraternity house and said she wanted to bring a cake. The young man who took the call was very excited. "Hey, Mrs. Schaeffer," he said, "that would be great!"

The next day she drove to the fraternity and rang the doorbell. The same boy answered the door. When he saw the cake, his face fell. "Oh," he said, clearly disappointed. "I thought you said 'keg.' "

Forget about the past, you can't change it.

Forget about the future, you can't predict it.

Forget about the present, I didn't get you one.

Here’s the news: A Rhode Island man was arrested for passing a counterfeit $100 bill. What gave him away? Lincoln’s face: It’s supposed to be on the $5 bill.

Here’s the laugh: A counterfeiter drives to a small town, enters a store, and hands the rube behind the counter an $18 bill. “Mind making change?” he asks. “Sure,” says the clerk. “Ya want two nines or three sixes?”

This man was really lonely, so he posted an ad on a popular website.

The ad said, simply: "Wife wanted."

He was surprised the next morning to find he had over a hundred replies in his inbox. Unfortunately, they all said the same thing:

"You can have mine."
