Today I thought we’d have a little fun and list some unusual or relatively unknown facts about today, November 21st. I love stuff like this. Plus, hey, we all need our heads full of mostly useless information sometimes. 😉
So, on this day here are some little-known facts about this day in history or other foolishness just for the heck of it…….
- 1794 – Honolulu Harbor discovered
- National Adoption Day – a number of courts and communities in the United States come together to finalize thousands of adoptions of children from foster care. More than 300 events are held each year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving in November, in all 50 US states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico to finalize the adoptions of children in foster care. In total, more than 40,000 children have been adopted from foster care on National Adoption Day.
