Today was Who Knew Wednesday and we talked about weird and unique holidays you may not have known existed.

Jess on cakeToday is Star Wars Day (aka May the 4th), so we encouraged you to watch one of the Star Wars films tonight to celebrate. You can also head over here to check out the official Star Wars May the 4th Hub. To celebrate, I thought I’d add a throwback picture from Joe’s birthday where my face on Princess Leia’s body was put on Joe’s cake as part of a WNZR joke.

Tomorrow is Password Day, a holiday created to make sure all of your passwords are secure and up-to-date. You can click herehere for more information on the holiday, and head over here to find a ton of tips on how to make sure you have strong and unique passwords.

This Friday is No Homework Day, a holiday created to give kids a small break from their homework and a chance to relax a little bit as they are hitting the craziness of the end of the school year. Plus, since it’s on a Friday, your kids still have the rest of the weekend to do their assignments.

Next Monday, May 9th, is Lost Sock Memorial Day. This day was created just to mourn the loss of any socks you may have lost over the years, while still celebrating the random leftover socks you still have. You can read more on this holiday over here.

Our trivia question for the day had to do with Lost Sock Memorial Day. We asked how many socks the average person loses each year, and Dallas from Utica called in and correctly guessed that the answer was 15 socks. (The average person actually loses around 1,264 socks during their lifetime! You can read more on that study over here.) Dallas picked up a $5 gift certificate to Troyer’s of Apple Valley.

Our Word of the Day was wisenheimer (WYE-zun-hye-mer), a noun meaning a smart aleck or wiseguy. You can read more on that here.

And don’t forget to get your tickets for Mom’s Night Out, happening THIS Saturday, May 7th. Tickets are FREE, but seating is limited, so head over to Gospel Supply Shop in downtown Mount Vernon, or stop by our studios on the second floor of Founders Hall on the campus of MVNU to pick up your tickets. You can find all the information on Mom’s Night Out by clicking here.

Have an awesome Wednesday evening!
