AUGUST 15, 2017 | NATIONAL RELAXATION DAY | NATIONAL LEMON MERINGUE PIE DAY
NATIONAL RELAXATION DAY
National Relaxation Day is observed annually on August 15th. It is time to slow down, unwind and relax!
National Relaxation Day is an important day as we all need a break from the fast-paced and often hectic lifestyles we live. Taking time to recuperate and rejuvenate our tired minds and bodies may help prevent many health risks. Like the founder of this day suggested, too much work can make us sick, run down, tired and that’s just wrong.
But he was right! It has been proven that stress can be harmful to our health, both mentally and physically. Most doctors will agree that finding ways to relax and finding ways to reduce stress will improve overall health.

NATIONAL LEMON MERINGUE PIE DAY
Are you hungry? Pie lovers and lemon lovers from across the country get your forks ready. August 15th is National Lemon Meringue Pie Day!
Served as a dessert, lemon meringue pie is a baked pie usually made with a crust of shortbread pastry, lemon curd filling and a fluffy meringue topping.
A meringue consists of egg whites whipped into stiff peaks with white sugar then baked in a slow oven. It then becomes crisp. Meringue can also be served individually with fruit fillings or as a cookie. Meringue was perfected in the 17th century, and lemon meringue pie, as we know it today, was developed in the 19th century.
