August 24: National Knife Day

I’m not quite sure how to celebrate this, but August 24 is National Knife Day. Maybe we should carve things – like a bird from some oak or pine, or perhaps a slice from a watermelon or a pie! I’m a bit of a klutz, so I’m always a bit worried around sharp things; I’m afraid a butter knife is more my style than a dagger.

“All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.”
1 Samuel 17:47

Trivia for the day: August 24 is generally accepted as the day that Mt. Vesuvius erupted, destroying Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 AD.
