November 4th is definitely a national holiday, for many reasons.  Not only is it "National Candy Day," "King Tut Day," but also "Use Your Common Sense Day." 

.

Let's start with "Use Your Common Sense Day."  The day got started back with the American cowboy and actor, Will Rogers.  Rogers use to say that, "Common sense ain't all that common."  He was born on November 4th in the year 1879.

Most would expect this past Monday, October 31st or better known as Halloween, to be "National Candy Day."  No real reason why it is deemed November 4th, but the National Confectioners Association claims today to be the day.  So in honor of the holiday, I will prefusely eat chocolate and any other candy I can hijack from some young kids in honor of the day.

Lastly, "King Tut Day" also happened on November 4th back in 1922.  That was the day Howard Carter, an archaeologist, disovered King Tut's tomb.  For you non-historical gurus, Tut died more than 3,000 years before his body was discovered and his tomb was one of the few royal tombs not looted by grave robbers.  The most interesting fact about King Tut was that he was only 9-years old when he died and was a pharaoh!  Imagine?  You're nine, you're the pharoah of Eygpt, you're ridiculously wealthy, and you are remembered many decades later.  Wish I had accomplished that much at my age!
