Today is...
Be a Millionaire Day!
Today is the perfect opportunity to dream big and imagine what life would be like as a millionaire! While a million dollars may not be what it used to be, seeing a seven-figure number in your bank account is still considered a major financial milestone.
The first multi-millionaire in the United States was John Jacob Astor (1763 – 1848). Astor made his fortune in trade and later established the first trust in American history. His great-grandson, John Jacob Astor IV, was the wealthiest person aboard the Titanic.
There are many different ways to celebrate Be a Millionaire Day. Invest money in a savings account or stock portfolio, or purchase a lottery ticket to try your luck!

Today is also National Quiche Lorraine Day

May is National Bike Month & National Hamburger Month & National Strawberry Month
