Happy 12th April

Well I felt like making a birthday post but it's nobody's birthday which is just my luck.

So today shall henceforth be Happy 12th April Day or possibly Cosmonautics day if you live in Russia or this is highly unlikely but if you do live in the Roman Empire then today is the first day of Cerealia!

So for the next week let us all celebrate the festival for the grain goddess Ceres.

One custom was to tie blazing torches to the tails of live foxes and release them into the Circus Maximus.

They also have horse races.



Cute no?


This is a painting of Cerealia



Pity the Romans had no cereal bars...

Happy Cerealia!!!

Also Yuri Gagarin became the first human in outer space 50 years ago on this day.


Yuri on a coin

Tristessa informs me that today is also RAINBOW AND SUNSHINE DAY!!!!
