Oakapple day

Today is the day that used to be celebrated as Oakapple Day - the birthday of Charles II and the date of his coronation in 1660. Now discontinued as a holiday more's the shame though I say that without any political or Royalist sentiment. Any excuse for a glass of cider should be revived.

Just because it is no longer an "official" holiday doesn't mean that you can't celebrate it anyway.

I even got my wife some presents today and wished her a "Happy Oak Apple Day" . . . even though it was just because it happened to be Oak Apple Day . . . otherwise they would have been "Just Because" presents.
