King Mango Strut, Pepper Pot Day, more

December 29th, 2013, is King Mango Strut, Tick Tock Day, Feast Day of Saint Thomas Becket, and Pepper Pot Day.

Coconut Grove, Florida, hosts the 32nd annual King Mango Strut. Mangoheads unite!

Tick Tock Day serves to remind us all that the clock is ticking, that we shouldn't put off until tomorrow what we can do today, that we should start thinking about that bucket list.

Today is the Feast Day of Saint Thomas Becket. He offers inspiration to believers who are not free to live openly as Catholics.

Pepper Pot Day celebrates "the soup that won the war." Pepper Pot Soup was created by Christopher Ludwick, baker general of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, who gathered what he could to feed the soldiers. His creation included tripe, meat scraps, and peppercorns.
