Old School Thursday: Fires, Manners, Sandwiches Edition

Oooh. Today’s a good day. Except, of course, in that it’s the anniversary of The Great Chicago Fire (1871), but at least the city bounced back. Oh yeah, and also in that it’s the 90th anniversary of the passage of the Volstead Act (aka Prohibition). Because who wants Prohibition? Or fire.

Things got a lot more civilized in 1952, when The Amy Vanderbilt Complete Book of Etiquette was published. And then, at some point, the food lobbyists got their hands on the day. And that’s why today is National Fluffernutter Day! And seriously, fluffernutters are the best. The best.

So I’m pretty sure you know how to celebrate. With very, very polite sandwiches.
