MOVIE GEEKS, UNIQUE HOLIDAYS, AND RANDOM TRIVIA

Hosted by Ellen Bales
Group active since Thu, Oct 06, 2016

This is a group for people who love movies, any kind of movies: black and white, Technicolor, wide-screen, documentary, sci-fi, shoot-em-up, murder and mayhem, Disney. Whatever your preference, tell us all about it here. You can recommend a film, or pan it. Show a trailer if you wish. Do you like to stream movies on your TV or watch HBO and Lifetime? Those are also fair game.

It is also a group for discussing odd things like unusual holidays or bizarre trivia. If you should run across anything out there which might qualify, please do share with us!

As with any JAP group, we ask that members be kind to one another. Remember, bullying reflects back on the bully far more than it hurts the victim. So let's all be grownups!

TODAY'S MOVIE POSTER

Frankly, I don't remember this movie, but I do recall when Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin were partners. Apparently they had a falling out after ten years together, when Martin became jealous of Lewis' popularity and comic talent. Of course, they both went on to become huge stars in their own right.

NATIONAL POPCORN DAY - JANUARY 19

The origins of this holiday are unknown. We have not found any information or documentation to confirm this is a true "National" day. But, don't let that pop (burst) your bubble, err pop your corn that is. It's a day to celebrate healthy (until you load it with salt and butter), and addicting popcorn.

Strangely, National Popcorn Day is in January, yet National Popcorn Month is October. According to tradition, it is celebrated on January 19th each year. There is some suggestion that Popcorn Day may, at one point, have been tied to the Superbowl. And, we found one reference to it being on January 30th.

On National Popcorn Day, we suggest you pop up some fresh popcorn, kick back and enjoy!

Hurry, there's still time!

DITCH NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS DAY

Ditch New Years Resolutions Day

Date When Held : Event is always January 17

If there's a day to celebrate New Years and to make resolutions for the upcoming year, then there should be a day to ditch those resolutions. That's the reason for today.

If you haven't broken or given up all of those New Year's resolutions, you're doing better than most of us. Maybe, you're well along the way to accomplishing them. Maybe, a few are already checked off on your list. Good for you!

For many of us, New Years resolutions are hanging heavily over our heads. They have become a burden, and perhaps were not such a good idea after all.

Then...... of course, there's the New Years resolutions that have already been broken.

If you haven't accomplished, broken, or given up your New Year's resolutions, today is your chance to get out from under them. You have permission!
