  • April Fool's Day
    April Fool's Day sometimes called All Fools' Day, is one of the most light-hearted days of the year. Its origins are uncertain. Some see it as a celebration related to the turn of the seasons while others believe it stems from the adoption of the Gregorian Calendar which replaced the Julian Calendar.

  • National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day
    National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day is celebrated annually on April 2nd. This food holiday is a classic favorite of many. The average American will have eaten over 2000 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches by the time they graduate from high school. It is thought to be that the first reference of peanut butter paired with jelly on bread, was published in the United States in 1901. Peanut butter was considered a delicacy in the early 1900's, and was only served in New York City’s finest tea rooms. In the late 1920's, the price of peanut butter declined, and the sandwich became very popular with children. During World War II, both peanut butter and jelly were part of the US soldiers military ration list. Today, it is a popular staple in most households--loved by most everyone.

  • School Librarian Day
    The education of young minds needs to be nurtured. Feeding those minds with good quality, yet challenging reading material is something that school librarians excel at doing. School Librarian Day honors those who serve our young students so well in our local school libraries. April 4th was the most common referenced date, and most referenced on educational sites. In honor of our school librarians, take a minute today to appreciate all the hard work that a school librarian does on a daily basis, and the patience that they display, as he or she aids in nurturing our youth.

  • Full Pink Moon
    The Full Pink Moon, heralds the appearance of the moss pink, or wild ground phlox—one of the first spring flowers. It is also known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and the Fish Moon. These names were used by early Colonial Americans—who learned the names from the local Native Americans. The name itself usually described some activity that occurred during that time in their location. A full moon is a lunar phase that occurs when the geocentric apparent longitudes of the Sun and Moon differ by 180 degrees; the Moon is then in opposition with the Sun. At this time, as seen by viewers on Earth, the hemisphere of the Moon that is facing the earth (the near side) is fully illuminated by the Sun and appears round. Only during a full moon is the opposite hemisphere of the Moon, which is not visible from Earth (the far side), completely unilluminated. As a lunar month is about 29.531, the period between full moons can be either 29 or 30 days.

  • Easter Sunday
    The date for Easter changes every year. It is the first Sunday after the full moon following the spring equinox and it marks the end of Lent, a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance. To Christians, the real meaning of Easter is the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and it is the most special day of the year. In addition to Easter's religious significance, a popular folk custom involving an Easter Bunny is also celebrated on this day as well. The Easter Bunny comes on Saturday night leading to Easter Sunday morning, bringing baskets filled with chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks and various other candies to children. Another favorite tradition is the making of colorfully decorated eggs and the fun childhood game of Easter Egg Hunting which has also become a standard part of this holiday.

  • Earth Day
    In September 1970, at a conference in Seattle, Washington, U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin announced that in the spring of 1970 there would be a nationwide grassroots demonstration on the environment. Senator Nelson first proposed the nationwide environmental protest to thrust the environment onto the national agenda. "It was a gamble," he recalls, "but it worked." Each year, the April 22 Earth Day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. Earth Day is the only event celebrated simultaneously around the globe by people of all backgrounds, faiths, and nationalities. More than a half billion people participate in Earth Day Network campaigns every year. These campaigns promote healthy, sustainable environments, using clean energy, and encouraging recycling efforts.

  • Arbor Day
    Arbor Day is a nationally-celebrated observance that encourages tree planting and care. Founded by J.

It was claimed that more than 1 million trees were planted in Nebraska on that day.
