Ratcatchers Day

You’d think that this holiday is to celebrate exterminators. Well, you are half right. It is actually to commemorate the Pied Piper of Hamelin (Germany), who was one of the most infamous Ratcatchers. He had magic music on his pipe/flute that would lure rats out of the city. When the town didn’t pay him, he used the magic to lure the children out of the city, never to return. What is your grossest rodent experience? Do you get rid of the rodents yourself or an exterminator/ratcatcher?

A flitch is a side of bacon known as a slab. On this day, trials used to be held and any married couple that could prove that they had been faithful in the last year to each other would be awarded a flitch of bacon.

National Personal Chef Day

Don’t you wish you had a private chef to cook for you at any time? This is the day to celebrate those who have a passion for food and love sharing it with people.

Anyway, with a brand-new month upon us, I thought I'd share some little-known designations for the days of this month, starting with July 1st.
