Keep America Beautiful Month
In 1953 a group of individuals formed an organization called “Keep America Beautiful” aimed at reducing the amount of littering on public lands, highways and waterways encouraging Americans to take pride in America. It is the nations largest volunteer based community action and education group. Since it’s conception it really has grown in leaps and bounds with campaigns and promotions.

National Pretzel Day
National Pretzel Day is celebrated on April 26, 2014. It's a day to acknowledge the importance of the pretzel to the state's history and economy. National Pretzel Day was declared in 2003 by Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell. A pretzel is a type of baked food made from dough in soft and hard varieties and savory or sweet flavors in a unique knot-like shape, originating in Europe. In the 19th century, southern German and Swiss German immigrants introduced the pretzel to North America. Today, Pennsylvania is the center of American pretzel production for both the hard crispy and the soft bread types of pretzels. The annual United States pretzel industry is worth over $550 million. The average American consumes about 1.5 pounds (0.7 kg) of pretzels per year.
Babe Ruth Day
He wore No. 3 for only seven seasons, but boy did he wear it big.
Babe Ruth already had hit 470 of his 714 home runs by Opening Day in 1929, when the Yankees and Indians became the first Major League Baseball clubs to regularly wear jersey numbers on their backs. Just as Opening Day is where you begin any regular season, it also is where you begin any discussion of The Bambino as a player, so we are going to focus on his annual beginnings as we tick down to a new MLB season in only three days at Sydney.
