Fun Fact Friday

August 26, 2011 By: Serena

Happy Friday! What are your plans for the weekend?  I’m hoping to watch The Help and hunker down for the hurricane.

Today is National Cherry Popsicle Day!  Do you have cherry Popsicles in your freezer to celebrate?

BONUS FUN FACT:

“Popsicle” is actually a trademarked name, like “Walkman” or “Band-Aid.” The generic term is ice pop.  So I guess I should say today is National Cherry Ice Pop day ;)
