Woodie Wagon Day
Woodie wagons were first popular in affluent American communities, and were often found at hotels, country clubs, and national parks. Featuring hand-crafted strips of birch and mahogany on both interior and exterior panels, wood-bodied wagons were priced higher than regular models. By 1951, Chevy stopped making wood-bodied cars. 1949 was the last year Oldsmobile made woodies. They were high-end family cars with a list price of $3,295, equivalent to about $34,000 now!
National Caviar Day
Today, people are given a green light to splurge on themselves. It has been observed since 1994 as a day to purchase those things you seldom buy or enjoy a day doing something which you have dodged because it seemed to lavish in which to indulge. Today is all about you.
