Where’s the beef? There’s plenty of it around all through Hamburger Month, along with buns, cheese, fries and pickles! While many other popular menu choices have a special day devoted to them, this fast food favourite gets a whole month of celebration.

Nobody seems to be certain when this meaty month was first launched. However, it is sponsored by White Castle, the oldest hamburger chain in the US, and supported by other chains and independent burger bars. All kinds of special events are organised each year to mark the occasion, including burger tastings, food festivals, giveaways and even a burger battle between rival chefs in Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale.

The perfect way to celebrate Burger Month, though, is to throw your own party. There are many sizzling burger recipes to choose from, including healthy choices like turkey or veggie burgers as well as the classic beef version, so get grilling now.


...dress like one!


...or even change your make-up this month or wear a hat!

Winston Churchill Day - 9th April

On April 9th in 1963, Winston Churchill became the second person to become an Honorary Citizen of the United States, although this was the first time Congress had resolved that it was to be bestowed by the President of the United States, on a foreign national – he was granted citizenship of eight individual states as a prelude :- Hawaii, Maryland, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and West Virginia. 
Winston Churchill Day commemorates this event.
This honour was bestowed upon him by the 35th President of the United States – John F Kennedy, although Churchill was not present himself at the ceremony, his son and grandson were there for him. It had been hoped Churchill would not only witness the event on television – which he did with his wife – but would be able to respond. Problems with a relay station in Cornwall prevented this.
