December 2

December 2 is the 336th day of the year (337th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar.
There are 29 days remaining until the end of the year.

Events on this day:

1982 – At the University of Utah, Barney Clark becomes the first person to receive a permanent artificial heart.

Births on this day:

1973 – Monica Seles, Yugoslavian-born tennis player

1981 – Britney Spears, American singer, dancer and entertainer

Deaths on this day:

On Wikipadia, there was a nice long list of deaths for this day, but no one I recognised or found that famous.

Today, here in New Zealand is National Jandal Day in support of the Surf Life Saving. The wonderful volunteers who patrol our beaches during the summertime to try and help us swim in the safe areas between the flags and attempt to rescue us if we do have trouble in the water.

So whether you call them flip flops, jandals or thongs today is the day to be wearing them out.
Where them to work, the supermarket or the beach, if you are lucky enough to have the day off. Here in Hamilton the weather is very condusive to wearing them, the sun is shining and it is a lovely day for wearing little on your feet.
