Good morning educators. Today is Tuesday, October 5, 2021. Today is the 278th day of the year, and 87 days remain.

World Teachers’ Day

World Teachers’ Day is celebrated annually on October 5th. As you can easily infer, this holiday celebrates and commemorates teachers and teachers’ organizations worldwide. Its goal is to provide support for teachers and to ensure that the needs of future generations of teachers will continue to be met.
According to UNESCO, this holiday represents an awareness, understanding, and appreciation for the vital contribution that teachers make to the education and development of our children. Over 100 countries observe World Teachers’ Day. The efforts of Education International (EI) and its 401 member organizations have contributed to this widely spread recognition. Every year, they launch a public awareness campaign to highlight the contributions of the teaching profession.
To celebrate World Teachers’ Day, take the time to learn more about the role teachers and teachers’ organizations play in educating your children/grandchildren.

Do Something Nice Day 

Do Something Nice Day is celebrated annually on October 5th. As you might suspect, this holiday simply urges you to do something nice today.
Being nice should be your default attitude every day, but in today’s hustle-bustle world, sadly, that is often not the case. Do Something Nice Day urges people to go out of their way to be nice to people today. Aside from making you feel a bit better, being nice to someone might make their day better. You can be nice through something abstract like a friendly greeting to a passing stranger, or something more tangible like helping someone load groceries into their car or changing a flat tire for them.
And while you’re being nice today don’t forget about yourself. To celebrate Do Something Nice Day, after the exhausting task of being nice to everyone you encounter today, take yourself out to a nice dinner. Just be sure to leave a “nice” tip for your server.

National Get Funky Day

National Get Funky Day is celebrated annually on October 5th. This holiday encourages everyone to break out of their rut, find their groove – and get funky. When people get funky they get happy. They have fun, and the world becomes a more positive place. This holiday evolved from the incredible way the community came together to help complete strangers in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.
When we add a little spice to our everyday routine, it keeps life interesting. Get funky by wearing the brightest clothes, dance to happy music, smile, laugh, let your hair down, high-five, and hug people. Funkiness is infectious, so be prepared to see the attitudes of your coworkers and loved ones improve as you get your funk on. National Get Funky Day is a day to celebrate life, spread love, laughter, and light.
To celebrate National Get Funky Day, step out of your normal and get funky. The goal is to generate as much positivity as possible.

National Apple Betty Day 

National Apple Betty Day is celebrated annually on October 5th. You don’t need to be a pastry chef to conclude that this holiday celebrates that classic American dessert –  Apple Betty. An apple Betty is an American variant of similar recipes that are known today as a crisp, crumble, or cobbler.
The Betty (or Brown Betty) dates from colonial times and probably evolved from the traditional English bread pudding. An Apple Betty is a crustless apple pie seasoned with breadcrumbs, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar. The name “Apple Betty” first appeared in print in 1864 when it was mentioned in a Yale Literary Magazine article.
To celebrate National Apple Betty Day, simply make an apple betty for dessert tonight. Here is one recipe – in case you don’t already have one.

Listed below are some other holidays celebrated on this date that deserve mention.
