Today is National Vanilla Cupcake Day, proving that even boring (though delicious) foods need their day in the sun.
It’s also St. Tryphon day, the patron of gardeners – a patronage he shares with St. Sebastian, St. Gertrude of Nivelles and St. Fiacres, and probably a lot more saints who don’t have honorary days falling on Thursday this year. According to Catholic.org, there are more than 10,000 saints, and even the church doesn’t have a complete count. Not all of them have honorary days, but even if only a third of them do, well, it’s easy to see why there’s some doubling up for the gardeners.
And that’s about it for today. Enjoy that vanilla cupcake!
